Daniel ‘Overwatch community for his incredible DPS prowess, however, there’s no denying the popular Twitch streamer has a tendency to rage.

Daniel ‘Dafran’ Francesca is no stranger to raging online, especially when it comes to Overwatch. As a former Overwatch League pro for Atlanta Reign, he has run the gauntlet of competitive play and still streams the game on regular basis today.

Despite his always impressive fundamentals, Overwatch being such a team-dependant game leads to explosive outbursts from the popular streamer more often than not.

In a November 10 broadcast the streamer got a little too tilted at the conclusion of an exceptionally close king of the hill match on Nepal.

With one round a piece and both teams at 99% on the deciding stage, it all boiled down to a single fight and unfortunately Dafran’s team couldn’t quite pull through, leading to a fiery outburst from the veteran.

Blizzard - Overwatch LeagueDafran competed for Atlanta Reign throughout the 2019 Overwatch League season.

“I hate you all, loser, loser, loser, f*ck you,” he exploded as the word ‘defeat’ appeared across his monitor. “You f*cking piece of sh*t,” he repeated time and time again, imploring his teammates to “uninstall the game” after an extremely narrow loss at the Grandmaster rank.

Backing out of the match Dafran rapidly closed the game, stating he was “f*cking done.”

Despite Season 19 of competitive play having only just kicked off, it seems like the streamer is already at his wits end. There’s no doubt that he’ll be back grinding the competitive queues in the near future but future teammates might need to keep in mind his tendency to snap.

This heated battle came at the end of a near 12-hour stream so do take the outburst with a grain of salt. Dafran often goes overboard with his tirades and this example is no different.

Recently the streamer came out and slammed a fan who once looked up to him, in just the latest in a long history of controversy surrounding the often-blunt DPS main.

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.
