Atlanta Reign player pulls off insane Lúcio hard carry to clutch in ranked Overwatch

Atlanta Reign support player Petja ‘Masaa’ Kantanen put in an incredible carry performance with Lúcio to clutch a ranked game.

Masaa showed off the skills that helped him reach the Overwatch League with a flawless sequence of play to secure a control point.

Playing on Lijiang’s Night Market point, Masaa found himself forced to fight for the point alone as Lúcio against multiple enemies as the game went to overtime.

With the rest of his team wiped out, Masaa began by dropping a solo Sound Barrier simply to contest and buy time. Doing so allowed him to pick off the enemy McCree, before escaping to survive and coming back in to assassinate the enemy Mercy.

From there, Masaa remained elusive as his team began to return to the fray, dropping in for kills, healing up his team-mates, and preventing enemies from making it back with well-placed “boops” from the Sonic Blaster.

When the point ultimately went to Masaa’s team – keeping them alive in the map – he’d racked up five final blows, but the impact he had on the win was immeasurable.

Masaa is a member of the new Atlanta Reign roster, one of the eight expansion teams joining the Overwatch League for Season Two. Unlike the other expansion teams who have announced any roster details, Atlanta features no players that competed in Season One of the league.

Prior to joining the Reign, Masaa played in Contenders Europe for Team Gigantti, finishing second place in Season One and 3rd/4th in Season Two.

Overwatch update gives Winston Sombra and D.Va new Karaoke voice lines

Overwatch’s last patch on November 19 has finally given Sombra, Winston, and D.Va new Easter Egg karaoke voice lines on the Busan map.

The ability for certain heroes to sing on Busan isn’t exactly a secret, but it is a fun little Easter Egg hidden away. Devs have apparently been hard at work adding heroes to this exclusive club recently as well.

A few months ago Ashe, Baptiste, and Widowmaker joined the club, and, just before 2020 wraps up, Winston, Sombra, and D.Va have finally been let in on the fun as well.

The karaoke spawn room on Busan lets Overwatch heroes sing their hearts out.

Apparently added during the November 19 patch, these new voice lines weren’t found by players until a few days later when videos started to pop up. Sure enough, all three have new voice lines, though we wouldn’t exactly call what Sombra is doing “singing.”

Instead of laying down any bars, Sombra simply discusses the merits of hacking, pays off all of the neighbors’ bills (how nice), and changes the Karaoke bar landlord’s WiFi password (not so nice).

Winston’s two lines play on him being both a great ape and a great scientist. One has him explaining the first law of thermodynamics to players: “energy cannot be created or destroyed.” His other is about clapping with his hands and feet since, you know, he’s a gorilla.

Finally, the pièce de résistance, at least for all of the D.Va players out there, are her new Karaoke lines. In Overwatch lore, Hana ‘D.Va’ Song is both an esports champion and K-POP star, so you’d think she would have gotten her lines much sooner than she did.

If the Tank singing “Pew Pew Pew” isn’t adorable enough, she also proudly proclaims, “someone has to save the world, it might as well be me,” along with another line in her native tongue, Korean.

This brings the number of heroes who can sing on Busan up to 17 with Winston, Sombra, and D.Va; which is officially more than half of the 32 heroes currently in the game.
