The Overwatch League’s expansion teams are fiercely fighting an uphill battle

The inaugural season of Overwatch League was a bumpy road. That’s why the league’s eight new expansion teams were at such a disadvantage coming into the opening week. It’s healthier to look at them as just another team.”Win or lose, one week in Overwatch League doesn’t mean much. “You look at teams like NYXL, even Vancouver who are also an expansion team, those guys have been around as a team forever. It’s clear that a teams ability to work together cohesisvely will make or break their chances a

Apex Legends’ lack of lore gives ownership of the characters to the fans

The cast is more like a collection of action figures than actual characters, and that strategy that could give Apex Legends legs. Compare this approach to how Blizzard handles lore: Can you imagine a new animated Overwatch short that ends with Winston dying? Riot is collaborating with Marvel on a series of comics about League of Legends characters, selected from their cast of 143 characters. Characters exist in lore limbos, sometimes to the point that stories or champions become non-canon for mo

Overwatch posts Talon-themed Twitter teaser for… Hero 30?

The end of February has been, for the last two years, the time when a new hero is teased and eventually put on the Public Test Realm. That’s why this Twitter teaser, which looks like someone is infiltrating a Talon network, is so exciting. What’s interesting is Talon expects there’s a chance he may come along as a friendly ally ... or stay behind as a corpse. We’ve gotten a healthy amount of Talon lore since launch, with the release of Doomfist and his comic Masquerade, the Rialto map, and sever

It’s time to blow up Overwatch’s meta

Dominated by what has become known as the GOATS meta, Overwatch's best players demonstrated exactly why the game has become a chore to both play and watch. How to counter GOATSWhenever an OWL team went for a GOATS counter, both Twitch chat and the Blizzard Arena erupted in catharsis. The future of OWL and meta playIn pro play, the most effective composition will almost always be played by every single team on every map. If we're ever going to see Overwatch's full range in OWL and our own games,

NZXT introduces an Overwatch-themed case

NZXT has combined its powers with Blizzard Entertainment to create a special edition case from its popular H500 model, one of the best PC cases, just in time for the current Overwatch League season. Other than that, since NZXT is using its own H500 model, expect the same all-metal chassis, tempered glass panel, and simplified cable management and water-cooling installation. This isn't the first time NZXT has paired up with a company to release a game-themed chassis or accessory. NZXT released a

Paris, the newest Overwatch assault map, is now live

Paris, the Overwatch map that has been tested on the PTR, goes live today on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One. An assault map, Paris is light on lore but heavy on gorgeous locations and flavor. There’s a lot of visual effort put into Paris, but there isn’t much in the way of lore. This isn’t a map that goes into existing heroes’ past or present, like Horizon Lunar Colony or Necropolis. For now, though, players should focus on taking the point and working with their allies on the brand new

Overwatch boss Jeff Kaplan didn’t expect ‘maining’ to be so common

An Overwatch "main" is a character that you play primarily or exclusively, regardless of mode or circumstance. It's not necessarily the best way to play, because it limits your flexibility and thus your situational usefulness, but it's common. It's not just Overwatch; I was a die-hard Sniper main in the original Team Fortress days, although I don't recall using that particular term for it. So it's obviously not a new phenomenon, but even so, its prevalence in Overwatch, a game that lets you swit
