​Hearing-impaired Overwatch League fan Danik Soudakoff was recently interviewed on the latest episode of Watchpoint: Recap Edition. He attended his first live Overwatch League match and explains how he and the official interpreter sign Overwatch heroes. 

Soudakoff is a Los Angeles Valiant fan and was in the crowd ​when his team took on NYXL. He got to meet the team backstage and hopes to join the team someday. 

​​Soudakoff explains that it's hard to understand what's happening by just watching the Overwatch League streams and that it's much easier to enjoy the matches live as a deaf person. 


Making the ​live matches accessible for the hearing-impaired is admirable on Blizzard's part and hopefully that inclusivity will lead to fans like Soudakoff being able to play in the League someday.
