Anita trolls Overwatch teammate annoyed at her Tourette tic

Popular Twitch streamer Anita had the perfect response to a rude Overwatch teammate that complained about one of her tics.

Anita has Tourette Syndrome, meaning she often produces involuntary sounds or phrases called tics, and while streaming Overwatch she encountered a teammate who responded to them rather rudely.

Despite Anita’s explanation of her Tourette Syndrome, the player was apparently convinced that she was “some kind of robot”, although continued to make inappropriate sexual remarks and threatened to report her in-game.

Sweet_Anita, TwitterAnita has seen a massive growth in popularity since starting streaming.

Anyone who’s spent any time watching her streams will likely recognize the whistle that is one of her more common tics, and it seems this particularly irritated Anita’s teammate, who eventually shouted at her to “stop that fucking whistle”. Anita didn’t seem particularly distressed, however, and was quick to answer with a perfect response.

It seems being forced to periodically whistle is good practice, because without missing a beat Anita began an impressive whistled rendition of the infamous “troll song”.

The player clearly didn’t appreciate this new development and responded with even more unpleasant comments, but Anita simply continued to whistle over the top of him.

It seems the player eventually accepted defeat, as he wasn’t heard from again during the game. While the match too was unfortunately lost by Anita’s team, the moment made for a more entertaining end to the game for those watching the stream than a simple victory would have.

While the hilarious moments that Anita’s tics can produce – and yes, she’s happy for you to laugh – might make for some particularly entertaining highlights, Anita’s rapid growth in popularity this year has largely been built off her personality, from her ability to deal with situations like this to her remarkably sage advice on serious topics like dealing with grief.

In this instance too, Anita had some advice for viewers, stating that “when people troll, you don’t always have to resort to toxicity in order to deal with it.”

Overwatch Oct 28 update makes Sombra more consistent than ever

The October 28 Overwatch update has arrived and the latest patch comes with a ton of critical bug fixes, many of which will give Sombra mains a huge sigh of relief.

Blizzard has been on a hot streak with major quality of life improvements over the past few days. On Oct. 20, it was Wrecking Ball and Lucio that received some much-needed changes. A few days later, on Oct. 22, multiple heroes had their health adjusted.

Now, it’s time for Sombra players to rejoice as the latest update is almost entirely for them. While a ton of bug fixes were in focus this time around, it’s clear that Sombra was Blizzard’s top priority for this patch.

If you’ve been avoiding the hero, now is the time to jump back in with your favorite hacker. Here’s everything there is to know about the latest Overwatch update.

Overwatch Sombra Translocator

Sombra’s Translocator was at the top of the list in the latest Overwatch patch.

Sombra is the only hero that received changes in the October 28 patch notes. Everything else on the list purely focused on general bug fixes. Two main changes for the Damage dealer should make her life easier than ever.

First up, a rare Translocator bug was squashed. Seemingly at random, her teleporting ability could go on its full six-second cooldown if it was destroyed while being used. As with most abilities in Overwatch, if they’re taken out the split moment in which they’re triggered, the game often refunds them right away. Sombra’s translocator should now function just the same.

Moreover, if you’re invisible with the hero, you can now rely on her intel more than ever before. Sombra is supposed to be notified when an enemy spots her while cloaked. That hadn’t been the case from time to time due to a pesky bug. Though the brand new update has completely fixed this issue. 

No matter where you are or how many opposing players spot you, you will now be properly alerted when enemies are onto the case.

Sombra-mains will have a far simpler time while invisible moving forward.

Among the other changes were plenty of fixes for the Workshop mode. Funnily enough, if Sombra is more than double her normal size for whatever reason, she’ll be detected properly in that form too.

The full list of changes in the October 28 patch can be found below.
