Dafran amazed as Overwatch players cover Dr Dre & Skyrim on Paris’ piano

Twitch streamer Daniel ‘Dafran’ Francesca ran into what could be the best duo in all of Overwatch, but for completely different reasons than you may expect.

While queuing for a game, the former Overwatch League star joined a custom skirmish to wait. He ended up being placed on the Paris map where two other players were playing the in-game piano.

Paris is one of the game’s most hated maps due to how it overwhelmingly favors the defenders, but it does have some cool easter eggs such as a fully working piano that people can play by hitting keys.

The Symmetra duo immediately impressed the Danish damage player by covering the Super Mario theme song. The fact that there were two people capable of using the in-game piano so well blew the streamer away.

“This guy is giving piano lessons in Overwatch, dude,” he laughed. “Piano gang.”

One of the best highlights came a few moments later when one of the Symmetras change to a Genji for one of the most outrageous covers of the night. After jumping up to the piano, the cyborg ninja began using his alternate fire to hit keys and played Still D.r.e by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.

The Tracer legend started cracking up at the music, still impressed that such a performance was even possible in Overwatch.

Finally, the duo had one final act up their sleeves when they performed Dovahkiin from Skyrim. With both Symmetras playing the track, it was a legendary sight to behold and probably the peak piano experience the Blizzard developers wanted when they added the musical instrument to the game.

“This is insane,” Francesca said before asking the duo to try their luck at playing Toss a Coin to Your Witcher, only for one of the pianists to use the DPS hero’s “I don’t think so” voice line.

Unfortunately for Dafran, he was put in a game before he could continue listening to more amazing music.

Regardless, it was one of the most unique Overwatch experiences in quite some time, and hopefully the two artists can continue to amaze with their musical talents.


How to get your 2020 Twitch Recap: A simple guide

Twitch has been rolling out 2020 recaps for both viewers and streamers, letting you see who you watched the most, and if you streamed, how many total viewers you racked up. So, here’s how you can get ahold of yours. 

Over the last few years, services like Spotify and Apple Music have started to give users a recap of their year – showing off who they listened to, how many hours they spent on the app, and also adding a few recommendations for the following year.

Users of other platforms have called for similar things, so they can see just how much time they’ve spent watching videos, listening to music, and even playing games.

Twitch is one of those platforms that has followed suit, giving both viewers and streamers a recap of their 2020 on the platform – including who they watched the most, how many messages they sent in chats, and what their favorite emote to spam was.

To get your hands on your own, account-specific recap – whether you streamed or just watched along with Twitch chat – you don’t have to jump through many hurdles.

Just make sure that the email address you use on your Twitch account is active and can receive emails. If that’s all sorted, then, you’ll get an email from Twitch delivering your stats. 

If you think you’ve already got an email and might have missed it, then simply go into your email inbox and search either your Twitch username or 2020 Twitch recap. It should be there. Also, make sure to check your spam inbox, it might have gotten lost along the way and ended up in there.

That’s all there is to it, really. You don’t have to go to any new website and opt into anything special, just make sure that the email account linked to your Twitch is able to receive emails.

Of course, as nice as it is to see which streamers you’ve wasted far too much time watching, some content creators aren’t happy. Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel pointed out that the stats are skewed, and his case ruined altogether, for some streamers because of bots.
