Overwatch League’s second season doesn’t officially get started until February 14, but fans will have the chance to watch some of their favorite players in action when Austin ‘Muma’ Wilmot hosts custom pickup games live on Twitch on Friday, January 11.

Dallas Fuel Assistant Coach Jayne Justin ‘Jayne’ Conroy has been hosting Overwatch pickup games throughout the offseason, but on January 10 he reached out to the League to help him host some on Friday, January 11.

Soon after that, and a few cryptic gifs from the League’s Twitter account, Muma announced he would he hosting OWL pro pickup games on Twitch at 7 PM PST on Friday, January 11.

Blizzard previously banned professional players from participating in pugs during Overwatch League Season One, but they seem to have changed their attitude this time around.

With some significant changes coming to Overwatch just before the season begins, this could be a good chance for Blizzard to give players a preview of what’s to come.

The Overwatch League’s second season starts on February 14, but the pickup games begin at 7 PM PT on Friday, January 11.

Overwatch players looking to find some new synergy between two unlikely heroes should look no further than a lethal combination with Tracer and Wrecking Ball.

Wrecking Ball can be one of the most annoying heroes in the game to deal with, constantly booping people away while remaining in his ball form.

Meanwhile, Tracer can do very much of the same, buzzing in the backline, harassing supports and just being a general menace to deal with thanks to her Blinks, Recall and small hit box.

Together, the threat of Tracer and Wrecking Ball can really dominate uncoordinated teams, but with a little coordination on their own part, the two can destroy entire groups with a neat ultimate attack.

Wrecking Ball can be a major threat in the back line.

As demonstrated by Twitch streamer ‘rene_ow,’ the Masters ranked Hammond player spotted a pack of enemies all grouped up on the Busan map.

After grappling to go in for a major boop on the four, the player’s allied Tracer blinked in and stuck her Pulse Bomb on the McCree.

With the McCree booped into the rest of the adversaries, the result ended up being a massive quad kill, with both supports and DPS heroes on the enemy team eliminated swiftly.

The insane combo was well-received by the team, which celebrated the quad kill. “That was nuts!” they cried with glee.

Perhaps the best part of this combo is that you don’t need the stick to connect. In theory, you can have Wrecking Ball knock the enemies towards Tracer or her Pulse Bomb radius to secure the frags.

This type of team play may take some serious effort to get right, but if you have a partner you synergize well with, it’s always possible that this combination can help you win Overwatch games, and rank up in style.
