Dallas Fuel’s Pongphop ‘Mickie’ Rattanasangchod has revealed Dennis ‘InternetHulk’ Hawelka’s reasons for picking him up for Team Envy.

Mickie originally joined Team Envy – who later became the Dallas Fuel when the Overwatch League arrived – when the team found themselves suddenly needing a player for the APEX Season 1 playoffs.

The team had taken note of Mickie at the inaugural Overwatch World Cup, where he had been the stand-out performer for Thailand. When Envy needed a player, Mickie got the call from InternetHulk, who was one of the founding members of the Envy squad. With Mickie in at short notice, Envy pulled off a somewhat miraculous run and became the first ever APEX champions.

InternetHulk tragically passed away in November of 2017, and his incredible contribution to Overwatch is now honored by Overwatch League’s Dennis Hawelka Award, which is to be given each year to the player who has the most positive impact on the community. At the All-Stars event on August 26, Mickie became the first recipient of the award.

With Thai players a rarity at the highest level of any esport, Mickie credited InternetHulk with changing his life by offering him the opportunity to join Team Envy.

More recently, Mickie revealed exactly why the captain of one of the world’s premier Overwatch teams chose to offer that opportunity to an obscure player from an obscure region, posting the following image with the caption “this is the reason why he picked me up.”

Mickie has indeed been the embodiment of positivity for Team Envy and later the Dallas Fuel – a team that desperately needed it at times during the inaugural Overwatch League season – and it was that positivity that earned him the award in his former team-mate’s name.

During the spookiest time of the year, Overwatch’s fans have discovered a cute, quaint easter egg in the game’s Chateau Guillard map, which has enjoyed a Halloween makeover.

Overwatch’s developers over at Blizzard do not take October’s biggest holiday for granted, as they celebrate the costume and candy festivities each year with reworked maps and new cosmetics.

This year, players have taken to exploring the Halloween version of Chateau Guillard, and are appreciating the various adjustments.

Now set under moonlight, the extensive French chateau most popularly known for deathmatch custom games is also becoming known for spooky Halloween details. Having released in 2018’s event, players are still making discoveries in the version of Chateau Guillard at night.

Normally, people get distracted by the fog and darkness, or maybe the jack-o’-lanterns and subterranean coffin.

But, taking a trip to the red study room, Redditor ‘YHJ_JYG_Kryptlock’ has discovered a neat little Overwatch easter egg involving candle wicks.

The new Halloween easter egg appears in Chateau Guillard’s red study room.

As they demonstrate in the clip below, if you shoot each wick of the candelabra, the candles will briefly light. It’s nothing crazy, but that doesn’t stop it from being a neat addition to an already detailed revamped map.

To find this easter egg, you’ll first need to find the red study room.

If you’re facing inward to the chateau from the outdoor area with a jump pad and statue, this room will be toward the back right as you enter. If you’re on the opposite end, at the balcony’s health pack, this will be to your left as you enter the chateau.

If you shoot the candles wicks in Château Guillard (Halloween) you will light them on fire. from Overwatch

Ultimately, it’s a very simple easter egg, but a cute one. In a map covered in so much dreary darkness thanks to Halloween, lighting candles is a nice contrast.

Of course, it also makes for a decent party trick. So if you load into custom games, feel free to impress your friends by showing off your detailed map knowledge.
