POPULAR Moot POTG Contest #1
Well hello fellow Overwatch Hero’s! The Banana King has brought upon everyone a brand new weekly Overwatch contest which he will be hosting! Exciting I know right? Well try to hold it in until after you read the rules and the description of what the contest is!
Description of Contest: This Overwatch contest will focus on one of the after game moments, the Play of The Game (POTG) , if you are not familiar with Overwatch the Play of The Game is a feature where after a game ends, one of the 12 players will be shown making the best play of the game. If it’s getting a triple kill with your ultimate or getting some sick kills with Genji, the best play of he game will be shown. Now, with this contest their will be a 1st place, 2nd place, and 3rd place ranks. Entering this contest will be easy! All you have to do is upload your best play of the game that you think could bring you home the win, make a post including that play of the game, and use #MootPOTG to enter the contest and come Sunday I will review every entry and choose the 3 winners! Your POTG will also be judged on Skill, Quantity of Kills, Style, Effectiveness Towards Game Winning, Etc. Seems simple right? Well obviously it is... but there are some rules you have to abide by of course!
(Contest Ends Sunday!)
1. Arcade POTG’s do NOT count towards this contest and anybody trying to enter with an Arcade POTG will NOT be judged in this contest
2. Quick Play and Competitive Play are the ONLY type of POTG that will be counted towards judging! Anything else like I said before will NOT be judged
3. Life Saver POTG do NOT count as well, regular POTG’s and Sharpshooter on the other hand DO count towards this contest, anyone entering with Life Saver POTG’s will NOT be judged
4. POTG’s have to have a minimum of 3 kills unless a Sharp Shooter POTG is entered, therefore 2 kills is allowed ONLY for Sharpshooter POTG’s
Those were the rules, seem pretty self explanatory on why Arcade doesn’t count but if you need explaining because you’re just a slow type of person (don’t worry I am as well) Arcade play of the games don’t count because in games like 3v3 Elimination, and First to 30 type game modes play of the games usually are 2 kill play of the games and do not make for very good play of the games... Life Saver play of the games usually just involve saving your teammate by killing one person and don’t really make for good play of the games,
Here’s a logo I made for the contest, it’s alright but if anyone wants to make one I’d be sure to use it next time!
Remember this contest is for fun! Please no commenting hurtful comments on other people posts if you think their play of the game isn’t up to par! I’m the judge please let me be the judge and make those decisions!
Anyways have great rest of your day!
How will Sigma change the pros play
<TOOLS OF THE TRADE>
The maps that don’t have an emphasis on high ground are going to suit him the best. Outside of his ultimate, Sigma doesn’t have any movement abilities to help him traverse the battlefield.
His damage could be surprisingly high for a tank. A skilled player can even use the spheres to damage two targets at once. Using his Hyperspheres at their max range to damage enemies around corners and barriers is going to be a staple of great Sigma players, and a way to ensure he stays relevant on different maps.
Sigma’s Kinetic Grasp ability combines the power of D.Va’s Defense Matrix with Genji’s Deflect. In one ability he can eat a Graviton Surge from Zarya, gain shields from absorbing said ability, and laugh off an enemy Roadhog’s hook.
Sigma’s ultimate also counters bunched team compositions. He does not only 50 percent of maximum health damage, but crowd controls heroes in the air for an extended period of time with his Gravitic Flux, letting his allies put the hurt on as well.
<SIGMA’S COMBOS AND COUNTERS>
Sigma could be a great flex tank along with Orisa in certain defensive compositions. With the utility of an incredibly flexible shield, a knock-back with a chance to stun, and an ability to absorb damage and ultimates, Sigma complements defensive and slow team compositions well.
Sigma is slow. So matching him with Lucio would be good. In terms of other tank pairings, D.Va could be played along with Sigma. Having two ultimate-eating heroes could make for a powerful duo. And Orisa will be able to reinforce Sigma’s shield and add firepower with her ultimate. Sigma is strong against flankers like Sombra, Tracer, and Genji, as well as heroes like Wrecking Ball and Winston due to Accretion, his knockdown ability.
<WHERE IS HE WEAK?>
Being a mid-range hero with zero mobility and not even being able to quickly take high ground really limits him. Sigma was pitched as a main barrier tank, but seems to miss the mark compared to his peers due to his lack of mobility. In a metagame where so many heroes can claim the high ground, Sigma might be left behind in competitive games.
