It didn’t take long for Lengyel to respond to that proposition, but he largely kept things light.

In his official response to that first challenge, the former Overwatch pro joked about having the reach advantage and revealed that he would simply play the stamina game in any theoretical bout.

He demonstrated his capabilities by doing a brief crab crawl around his room before collapsing back into his chair.
