In the vein of earlier posts Dota 2 Fun Recollections, Civilization 5 Best Stories, Share Your Skyrim Best Moments, Funny, Cool and Other Left 4 Dead 2 Stories, Plants vs Zombies Survival: Endless – Scott’s Setup, The Most Embarassing Ways to Die in Alien Swarm, and Gratuitous Space Battles Quick Tips.
By the way, I finally committed to getting Overwatch (and the new PC setup necessary to run it – heck, even to download it thru Battle.net which forbids any system with less than 4gb memory from starting the download!) after a massive losing streak in Dota2. Wasting 10-20 minutes due to dumb team in Overwatch > wasting 40-60 minutes in Dota2.
Eastern Wombo Combo
As Mei, I landed a clutch Blizzard which froze 3 enemies… Followed by our D’Va dropping her ult on them for the kills!
When she got the Play of the Game, I mentioned it was possible thanks to me lol.
Nerf This! / Okay!
An enemy D’Va launched her mech right at us in an open street with Self Destruct activated.
Luckily, my Mei Ice Wall was ready to go, and I blocked the full launch and blast!
I Thought I Heard Something
I had just died on Ilios when I heard the cry of an ally falling into the death well.
Little did I know, for the Play of the Game, the enemy Lucio managed to jump out of a highground and rightclick push THREE of my allies into the well!
On Lijiang Tower one of the King of the Hill capture points is a room partitioned off by pits.
Junkrat (my preferred pick for any occasion) has a blast of a time in this map, camping on a one-way ledge and spamming grenades. When enemies skirmish with my allies and try to move around and dodge, inevitably they stumble into the path or blast radius of my saturation bombing!
More than once I can get killstreaks simply by continually firing at the same spot, over and over. In one game, only one single time a Winston tried to disrupt my cheese – he got Concussive Mined to death for his initiative.
Fool Me Once
In a Competitive Numbani round, as attackers I started spamming long range Junkrat grenades from behind the cover of the bus near the starting point. Suddenly I was killed in an instant by a Tracer, who was revealed in the kill replay to have been hiding up on the ledge to the right of the start door and leapt out to attack when we were busy.
The Competitive match came to Sudden Death, and we were attacking again. Once the start doors opened and we headed out to the capture point, this time I turned back and spammed some grenades up onto that ledge – just in case. Wouldn’t you know it, a short while later Tracer really did come jumping down and died to my Steel Trap + Concussive Mine!
Sorry for the Kill Steal, Zarya
On Hollywood as defending, I was perched on a ledge spamming Junkrat grenades (aaaaaaassss usual) perpendicular to several enemies who were trying to come out of the tunnel, when suddenly they got bunched up by our Zarya’s ultimate.
RIPtire time, I think I got 3 – plus one who died to my grenades just before I let ‘er rip!
He Who Hesitates… Kills
Junkrat defending the second point on Hanamura, the enemy was contesting the capture so I let my Tire rip! Just then, the enemy D’Va activated her ult right on the capture point!
I quickly turned the tire to jam it against the wall and keep it from moving. The D’Va explosion went off, my tire was spared, and I quickly sent it to continue its mission and blew up 2 enemies and D’Va’s freshly resummoned mech!
I’ve Got You In My Sights – No 1 Hero Limit
As Defense on Volskaya Industries, I picked Tobjorn and saw that another player on my team did to. We ended up losing the first capture point, so I started preparing at the final point.
After a bit, I noticed that I was hearing “I’ve got you in my sights” quite a lot. Pressing tab, I was amazed to see SIX enemy Soldier76s and FOUR allied Tobjorns (myself included)!
Soon the capture point was littered with Scrap, which was collected and converted to Armour… Which none of us could use cos we were all armoured up, leaving 10+ pieces just laying around the floor. Sodier76’s “I’ve got you in my sights!” was called out every minute.
We won in the end, but not before some of the enemy finally swapped to other heroes like a Pharah who seemed to be the only attempt at flanking instead of going down the middle to die!
I’ve got you in my sights!
20 Seconds GRAND TOTAL to Win
I joined a Quick match Route 66 as Attacker, and when the deep horn blared, I realized it was 20 seconds left on the clock!!!
So I hobbled toward the payload which was almost to the final point, blowing up an enemy on the way. I grenaded and concussive mined another two as it went into Overtime, and shortly after we won!
Ryujin No Ken Whoopsie There
Defending the last point on Temple of Anubis, the enemy Genji sort-of snuck up on us and RYUJIN NO KEN WO KURAE!!!… And immediately stepped onto my Steel Trap, making him totally useless until we blasted him to death.
What A Difference 1 Second Makes
Watching the Play of the Game…
D’Va activated her Self Destruct in the midst of a bunch of enemies… And then the enemy Mercy activated her own Resurrection, bringing her whole team to life in time to be nuked.
Poor Mercy, just a short delay (if she managed to avoid the mech blast) and SHE would have had Play of the Game.
