Why My Overwatch Character's Lore is as Important as How They Play
Overwatch, like a competitive game, has a fanbase of die-hard players looking to get the edge in any match they come across. Folks are constantly looking to see what characters are preforming well, what move combinations show the best results, and what team make-ups to keep an eye on. The ever-changing tier list lays out who is and isn’t seen to be “viable” picks in competitive play, suggesting that some characters are just outright better than others. And, to some degree, this is true; if you asked the average player, Symmetra is outright a worse character than most of the available heroes, struggling to fight on her own or be a beneficial addition to teams, despite some reworking from the design team.
But sometimes… sometimes it’s not so important that a character is or isn’t good. No, sometimes it’s much more valuable for you to connect with a character, despite their ranking or how the meta current views them. And in this way, you can find yourself encouraged to barrel ahead and really master a character no one else is playing.
Bastion is the final model of an all-but extinct line of robots, abandoned in the middle fo the woods and presumed destroyed after a huge military assault resulted in the metal corpses of his fellows littering the fields outside the city being sieged. Awoken by accident by an act of nature, a bird making its home upon his shoulder, Bastion finds himself in an alien home; the forest. Covered in moss and fauna, Bastion wanders about the woods, learning about the various forms of life that populate the region.
When a woodpecker triggers Bastion’s reactionary functions, believing the pecking to be a gun firing, he accidentally levels a portion of the forest, leaving himself emotionally vulnerable in realizing the destruction he caused. Discovering his fallen comrades soon after, Bastion starts marching towards the responsible city, only to be stopped by his bird companion, again trying to rebuild its nest on Bastion’s shoulder. Bastion, in realizing that he would rather build new life than foster old grudges, chooses instead to stay in the forest and better the world as best he can.
Bastion is not seen as a viable character and has never really had the abilities or stats to allow him to excel in the game, yet I can’t help but see parts of myself in this robot. And that relatability makes me want to learn to play him better, regardless of how the world sees him. It’s a similar feeling to why I find Wall-E such a well-made film, almost as if it was created for me and me alone. I’ve, to some extent, taken ownership of these characters, seeing them as an extension of myself and my ideals.
It can be hard to put into words why people do things sometimes. Why people find themselves invested in one franchise over another, why this movie was amazing while this other was abysmal, why you prefer chicken over pork, or can’t stand meat at all. Overwatch does something with their storytelling that makes it easier to articulate what’s appealing about a specific hero, and why we find ourselves so attached to some over others. Their designs and catchphrases supported by beautifully made animated shorts that really give life to what the character’s meant to represent, it’s hard to deny that Blizzard knows how to make compelling protagonists, even those who can’t talk.
It can be hard to admit that you aren’t looking to play a game optimal in the world of try-hards and get-goods, but I’d rather enjoy the games that I play than force myself to play in a manner that’s more tedious or less fun just to say I’m good at a thing. Overwatch isn’t my job, it’s a hobby, and it’s easy to forget that you don’t have to be good at your hobbies; you just have to find something about it that makes it worthwhile to you. And to me, Bastion makes Overwatch that much more special.
Who’s your favorite Overwatch character? Do you find yourself picking heroes based on stats or looks? Let me know in the comments, and I look forward to seeing you on the battlefield.
How Mei is One of the (Emotionally) Strongest Character in Overwatch
Many of Overwatch’s characters have tragic backstories, like how Winston’s father was killed and how Tracer needs to keep the chronal accelerator attached to her chest to keep her synced with the flow of time. These characters, even with their tragic backstory still choose to fight against evil, but the Hero with the most tragic story may just be Mei.
Mei’s beginning started out sad, as shown in the Overwatch Animated Short “Rise and Shine”, She was the only researcher to survive the teams' pod malfunction. She woke up to a world where the Overwatch team not only disbanded, but the team was labeled as criminals! She learned that nine years had passed from when she and her team had gone into their hibernation pods. This means that Mei is going to be unable to reach out to any of her old friends for help as the systems keeping her alive in Antarctica are slowly failing.
Mei has to think fast as the systems are failing, and with no one coming to her rescue means that Mei will have to figure out how to survive by herself. Mei does take time to feel the loss of her team, but she realizes after receiving a weak signal from Overwatch she works tirelessly in an attempt to get her nine-year worth of data out into the world through various setbacks and sacrifices she gets her message out and never gives up hope.
Mei’s final trial is to slowly walk back to civilization so that she can help save the world, that takes true determination. Being alone walking through Antarctica could drive anyone to madness, instead Mei is simply focused on her task showing just how strong Mei emotionally is.
Now there may be a question as to why Mei and this team were in Antarctica, Well Overwatch (The Organization inside the Game of Overwatch) had set up numerous bases around the globe. These bases were focused on studying various phenomena happening around the world. Mei and her team were collecting data on the weather and climate changes happening in Antarctica.
Mei’s tragic backstory hasn’t soured her outlook on life, instead, this tragic backstory has led Mei to cherish life more than anyone else. One of Mei’s voice lines being “Life is worth fighting for,” this shows how much Mei values life after her ordeal at the Ecopoint base.
Do you agree that Mei is Overwatch’s emotionally strongest character?
always been a fan of the high contrast color sprays.

Overwatch League Cancels March and April Event
Activision-Blizzard has announced that Overwatch Leauge events for the next two months are cancelled due to Coronavirus. The Coronavirus has broken out in several countries, and many events including the NBA and NCAA have since been canceled. Activision-Blizzard Entertainment is still working on ways to get Overwatch teams to be able to participate in events, as there were already cancelations at their recent events in China. Blizzard doesn't have any set plans for a digital event as of yet, but it looks like the company is looking into the possibility.

Overwatch Tips and Tricks on How to Play as a Mei Main!
If you are planning to switch to play as a Mei main, there are a few tips and tricks that might just make you the best Mei main out there. Mei is abilities and powers are more defence-based, but her abilities aren't particularly natural to master. Mei's learning curve may seem intimidatingly steep when compared to other characters like Solider. Mei's abilities are Cryo-Freeze, Ice Wall and her ultimate ability are Blizzard.
Cryo-Freeze is Mei's ability that allows her to heal by hiding inside one of the invulnerable cryogenic stasis pod for a limited time. While this enables Mei to re-gain health, it does leave her vulnerable the second, and she comes out of the stasis pod. Cryo-Freeze is a fantastic ability for stalling in overtime since Mei is completely invulnerable inside the pod. This ability can not only save you but can block attacks for your team as well. This ability can shield your team from area-of-effect damage like D.Va's Self-Destruct.
Mei's second ability is called Ice Wall. Most people use Ice Wall as a last-ditch attempt to block damage, where some other players seemingly use the ability as soon as possible. Ice Wall's best use is cover lines of sight and to isolate targets at choke points. Covering lines of sight is a fantastic application, especially when you and your teammates may be pinned down by covering fire by a bastion or Torbjorn's turrent.
Mei's Ultimate ability is called Blizzard, and Blizzard is commonly used as a last-ditch effort to stay alive if being overwhelmed. The ability is best used as an area-denial ability, and This ability is excellent in game modes that have a capture point, as when Mei throws out Snowball, some characters will react in time to be able to leave the area. But in those game modes that have a capture point, it means that if they leave the capture point, they either can lose the game altogether.
Now that we know Mei's ability let's get to the tips to get you to be the best Mei main possible. One huge tip that some players are that Mei's primary weapon, the Endothermic Blaster, has two modes. The primary fire emits a sprat of frost that slowly freezes enemies in place, while the secondary fire is where Mei uses the blaster to create an Icicle that deals some devastating damage. When using both of these firing modes, Mei mains can freeze using the primary fire then use the secondary fire mode to land a headshot to either instantly kill your opponent or deal some hefty damage on them.
Mei may not have a true counter, but her head's hitbox is quite big, which makes her an easy target for snipers like Hanzo, Widowmaker, and Ashe. Another big counter with Mei is that tanks can easily tank a headshot from her, even when frozen.
Mei's playstyle is to annoy the opponent not to get the most amount of Team Kills, and Her playstyle has a massive potential to distract enemies with her sustainability allows her to do so for long periods of time. With these tips on how to be the best Mei main, do you feel ready to start freezing out the competition?

DiverMcFiver (Overwatch Montage)
So I got bored of trying to get footage for the Moira video I've been working on, and started working on slightly serious/jokey Dva x Hammond video.. which I went with a Dive aesthetic for the giggles, and for obvious reasons. However I think it turned out pretty good, but I might be burned out on those two for a bit as that's all I played for a week and a handful of days 😅
Hope you all enjoy it though 😊
