An Overwatch fan put together a compilation showing off new hero Ashe in the various Overwatch League skins.

The game’s 29th hero, Ashe hit the live servers on November 13 after having been announced a BlizzCon and spending just over a week being tested on the PTR.

Like all new heroes, Ashe joined the game with 10 regular skins. Some are simple recolorings of her default design, while the Epic and Legendary skins make more distinct changes to her character model around a particular theme.

As well as her own look, Ashe’s skins also affect the look of B.O.B., her omnic sidekick who charges in as her ultimate ability and does “something”.

As well as the regular skins, however, Ashe also has access to twelve additional skins in the form of the Overwatch League team skins. These are the skins that will be used in the league, and can be purchased for 100 League Tokens.

For those considering picking up a League skin for Ashe and wanting to know which they like the most, u/Owlero has helpfully compiled them all.

From the thematically-appropriate Houston Outlaws colors and logo to the Florida Mayhem’s bright red and yellow – already inducing the nickname “McBob” for Ashe’s partner in crime, the latest continuation of the McDonalds meme that the Mayhem look inspired – this is what Ashe and Bob look like sporting Overwatch League skins.

Unfortunately, though several of the new teams’ skins have been revealed, as they’re not currently in-game they can’t be seen for every hero, and so aren’t available here.

Overwatch meets WarCraft with epic RTS custom game mode

Overwatch and RTS games like WarCraft and StarCraft might seem like complete opposites, but the two styles have been combined into a very promising-looking Workshop mode that lets you control multiple heroes as if they were individual units.

If we look at Blizzard games like one big family tree, then the StarCraft and Warcraft franchises could probably be considered something like Overwatch’s grandparents.

Back in the day StarCraft especially was one of the biggest esports on the planet, but the RTS genre has sadly fallen to wayside in recent years. Both still have dedicated communities though (even after the disaster that was Reforged) and it’s safe to say a good number also play Overwatch now as well.

Irish Overwatch manager Andygmb clearly hasn’t outgrown his love for real-time strategy, not that one ever does, decided to take the top down style from those games and apply it to all of our favorite heroes using Josbird’s cursor tool in the Workshop mode.

You can scroll around the map, and drag the map to select multiple units and control them all at once. Like an RTS game, you can tell them where to go, and when to attack something.

Right off the top of our heads if they ever were to make an Overwatch game like this, we’d wager that Roadhog rush would be a great opening build to start with.

But it doesn’t take much to imagine a League of Legends-style game as well being made playable with this type of game either. Sure, Blizzard already has Heroes of the Storm, but that only features a few Overwatch heroes to choose from, where this could add the whole roster.

Overwatch has over 30 different heroes that could make all kinds of different units.

With Heroes of the Storm already existing (and producing cooler skins for D.Va than Overwatch itself) our chances of seeing an official RTS featuring the game’s heroes are unfortunately slim to none.

That has never stopped players before though, so we’d keep our eyes out for some kind of League clone to appear before too long on the Custom Game browser. Until then, you can always waste more time playing Among Us there as well.
