Wrecking Ball Sneaks Around Enemy Team and Caps Point in First 20 Seconds
By Nathan Fusco
A Wrecking Ball player shows why playing Overwatch at 2 a.m. can be so much fun. As the match started, Wrecking Ball took off to the right, and used their Grappling Claw to swing themselves to the other side. The enemy team was holding the usual choke point on Eichenwalde and not paying attention, which usually happens in lower elos, or late at night.
The cherry on top has to be the Lucio. Coming back from his spawn, Lucio has no idea the point is being taken, and proceeds to walk by the Wrecking Ball after they take the point.
Lucio even stands on the payload as if to defend it before realizing the Wrecking Ball was from the other team. They then boop them away, but the damage has been done.
If the clip didn't cheer you up, Blizzard's decision on Overwatch Hero Pools might. On Friday, Blizzard revealed Overwatch Competitive would only be affected by the Hero Bans in Masters or Grandmasters.
Hero pools, introduced as a method to keep the Overwatch meta game from stagnating around one dominant hero composition, is more important at higher skill levels. Below Masters, competitive sees diverse compositions even without hero pools.
