Wrecking Ball aka Hammond is one of the most frustrating Overwatch heroes to play against due to his high mobility and durability. With someone as skilled as m0xyy behind the wheel of the hamster ball, magic happens such as this clutch play on Lijang Tower. 

M0xyy has had success in Minecraft Monday, winning with former Overwatch League main tank Félix ‘xQc’ Langyel. It would seem like some of xQc’s skill has rubbed off on the streamer as he showed how dominant he can be in the tank role himself.

During a September 23 stream, the tank player found himself in a rough situation on Lijang Tower. With the enemy team at 91% and his team in struggling to hold onto the objective, losing control could make a proper regroup for a recontest impossible due to staggered spawns. 

While m0xyy’s penultimate fight is messy with both sides fragging out, the streamer’s team is suffering greater loses and are forced to invest Sound Barrier and Coalescence for sustain.

Even m0xyy himself was kicking himself for not investing his Minefield ultimate once he died after being hooked and focused by a Roadhog. “I didn’t mine because I…” the panicky Twitch streamer struggled to say. “Oh my God, I didn’t know we had ults.”

Blizzard EntertainmentWrecking Ball is an extremely durable and mobile tank.

After respawning, m0xyy went on a mission to keep the point alive with a super fast rollout that involved grappling onto a building near the spawn and with a sharp turn made it back onto the point in mere seconds.

If m0xyy had been any slower, the point would have flipped and it would have been unlikely his team would have emerged victorious.

Once on the point, he activated Minefield killing the enemy Moira, scored a grapple environmental kill onto the enemy Roadhog and landed a piledriver on an enemy Ana before finishing her off with primary fire. 

Before the enemy Doomfist could get back on to keep his team’s chances alive, m0xyy’s team had 100% of the point and the match was won due to some insanely clutch plays which involved literally all of Wrecking Ball’s abilities. 

Blizzard EntertainmentWrecking Ball’s mobility is arguably his greatest strength.

One of the most things about Overwatch is how a match is never over until it’s over and comebacks are incredibly frequent. From the brink of defeat, one clutch play can turn a game on its head.

M0xyy’s game-winning play is a perfect example of this and one of the reasons he’s aiming to be ranked #1 on the North American ladder.

Borat set for first-ever Twitch stream alongside DrLupo: how to watch

Borat is one of the most iconic characters in the world, and now the Kazakh journalist is set to make his first appearance on Twitch tomorrow where he will ‘face off’ against DrLupo; here’s how to watch.

Borat is more than a national treasure to Kazakhstan. He’s a global icon and one of the funniest characters in the world.

Sacha Baron Cohen first slipped into the Borat persona back in the nineties. But although he appeared in several hilarious skits and cameos, he didn’t explode in popularity until 2006, when the feature-film ‘Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan’ released worldwide.

For those who haven’t seen it, it’s a mockumentary that revolves around unscripted real-life interactions. Sacha Baron Cohen pretends to be Borat, a journalist from Kazakhstan. He travels around the US to learn more about their culture.

But he purposefully presses their buttons and puts them in hilarious situations. He winds up people from all walks of life, which sometimes lands him in hot water.

Borat debuts the infamous ‘mankini’ at 2006 Cannes Film Festival.

Fortunately, we’re lucky enough to experience it all over again with the imminent release of the sequel, ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.’

Seth Rogen claims he has already seen it around six times and said he “can’t wait to watch it a seventh.” He described it as “crazy and wonderful” and believes it has “a few of the funniest scenes [he’s] ever seen in a movie.”

But that’s not all. To promote the movie, Twitch announced that Borat will make his first-ever appearance on their platform.

“For the first time ever, Kazakhstan’s biggest gamer will go live on Twitch,” the Amazon-owned platform announced on Oct. 20. “Very nice.” The best part is, he will ‘face off’ against DrLupo “in a battle for global supremacy.”

The stream goes live on October 20 at 3 pm PT. If you want to know where and how you can watch it, we’ve got you covered.

How to watch Borat stream on Twitch

  • First, you’ll obviously need to wait until the time is right. However, it’s a good idea to tune in a little earlier as most streamers kick things off with a ten-minute countdown.
  • Then, all you need to do is tune in to DrLupo’s Twitch channel, which can be found here.
  • From that point onwards, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

There has been no official word on what games they’ll play. DrLupo has been dabbling in a bit of everything lately, from 7 Days To Die and Escape From Tarkov to Genshin Impact. Maybe even a bit of Among Us might be on the cards.

Of course, it’ll depend on what games Borat has available. For all we know, he might be an absolute machine on Call of Duty: Warzone or League of Legends. But we’re not counting on it.

Either way, the stream is going to be a blast, and we can’t wait until it goes live.
