Mercy is Overwatch’s most straightforward healer. While Ana and Lucio are clearly built to mix (and/or boop) it up, Mercy’s got nothing but a dinky pistol and a dream. Many Overwatch players ridicule offense-minded “Battle Mercys” because they get slaughtered and they waste precious healing time. Perhaps, though,…
When a player reports an abusive teammate in Overwatch, the most common response is rarely fear, regret, or even an apology. It’s “go ahead!” Overwatch’s reporting system is opaque, like any game’s, but word on the street is that it’s toothless.
Today on Highlight Reel we have OP doors, nice entrances, amazing Tekken 7 moments and much more!
Video streaming platform Twitch announced a two-year collaboration with Blizzard Entertainment today, where the service will receive exclusive third-party streaming rights to tournaments like the Heroes of the Storm Global Championship and Overwatch APEX League.
After a difficult string of placement matches for the current Overwatch competitive season, the unthinkable happened. I dropped to a lower tier. I had spent multiple seasons comfortably sitting in the Platinum tier, and suddenly I was Gold. I have become obsessed with undoing this demotion.
Cosplayer Kara Corvus made this Pharah costume (and rocket launcher) out of EVA Form and Worbla. It’s so good.
During yesterday’s European Overwatch Contenders group stage, Esporati player DIDS put together a highlight reel of Widowmaker shots in short succession to secure the round.
That’s a lot to take in there (cosplay! rap! live-action!), but this is one hell of an effort from a team of French Overwatch fans.
Holy shit. I can’t deal with this. This video killed me. I am dead now.
The hook is a simple but effective tool in games: a chain, thrown accurately, pulling enemies back to their likely doom. But in the realm of competitive games, hooks seem almost ubiquitous. The reason why a hook is a near-necessity for any competitive game, is simple: They’re the biggest moments in games, boiled down…
For a game where half the fun is just loving its cast, Blizzard has been slow getting quality Overwatch figures onto the market. Pop Vinyls should be shot into the sun, and the Nendoroids were a start, but Good Smile has now stepped up with a Figma based on Tracer.
Daniel “Dafran” Francesca is an extremely skilled DPS player for Selfless, one of the best pro Overwatch teams out there. He’s also an unapologetic griefer and troll, and his antics have finally come back to bite him.
To recap, Overwatch’s Tracer is gay. Until now that’s been a fact contained to offscreen fiction, but the latest update to the PTR (Public Test Region) has dropped in a new voice line that references Tracer’s girlfriend Emily within the game itself.
When DSPStanky first started making Overwatch videos, he wasn’t planning to become an overnight internet folk hero, let alone the guy thousands of people associate with one of the game’s most-played heroes. He just wanted to quit his crappy job.
Here’s a clip of Overwatch’s most popular player, Seagull, absolutely tearing through a team while barely even paying attention. He’s angrily venting about a previous encounter, and then he just chops the wings off a strong Pharah/Mercy combo like it’s nothing. Even as a Pharah main, I have to admit that this is just…
Overwatch’s 5th Competitive season debuted last week, and in its wake, players are finding themselves demoralized and embarrassed. Skill ratings, Overwatch’s measure of how good you are, have plummeted about 200 points across the board since the end of last season. And, of course, adamant players are flooding …
