The first-ever Overwatch League MVP skin made especially for Sung-hyeon “JJoNak” Bang of the New York Excelsior is now available in game.

Jjonak was crowned Most Valuable Player of the Overwatch League’s Inaugural season in part because of his godlike Zenyatta play, that’s more or less continued to the current season as well.

To celebrate his achievement, Blizzard designed Jjonak his very own Zenyatta skin and were nice enough to give the rest of us the chance to get our hands on it as well.

Blizzard EntertainmentJjonak seems to really like the skin Blizzard made just for him.

How do we get the new skin?

The MVP Zenyatta skin is based on the pro’s love for octopuses, JJonak stands for “jjomullak najki,” or “fumbling octopus” and he even has one tattooed on his arm.

The skin looks incredible with little octopus orbs, and definitely worthy of one of the best Overwatch players around.

Blizzard EntertainmentThe “Zen-Nakji” Legendary skin is a must-have for any true Zenyatta fan.

Now regular players have the chance to get their hands on the skin from June 27 to July 14 for 200 Overwatch League Tokens, which can either be bought with real money or earned from watching OWL on Twitch.

The skin can be unlocked by going to the Overwatch League menu in game and selecting the grey OWL tab, where it can be found right next to the Lucio Dance Party emote.

Big changes coming to the Overwatch League

After announcing his retirement from the Overwatch League, former L.A. Gladiators pro Baek ‘Fissure’ Chan-hyung confirmed on stream that the League would be going to a 2-2-2 role lock for Stage 4 of the current second season.

This would mean that teams would be forced to run two DPS, two tanks and two supports, which would essentially eliminate the GOATs composition from play.

Whether or not this means that 2-2-2 will be coming to the main game for everyone else remains to be seen, but if it does it would be one of the biggest changes to ever happen to Overwatch since the game came out.

Overwatch Oct 28 update makes Sombra more consistent than ever

The October 28 Overwatch update has arrived and the latest patch comes with a ton of critical bug fixes, many of which will give Sombra mains a huge sigh of relief.

Blizzard has been on a hot streak with major quality of life improvements over the past few days. On Oct. 20, it was Wrecking Ball and Lucio that received some much-needed changes. A few days later, on Oct. 22, multiple heroes had their health adjusted.

Now, it’s time for Sombra players to rejoice as the latest update is almost entirely for them. While a ton of bug fixes were in focus this time around, it’s clear that Sombra was Blizzard’s top priority for this patch.

If you’ve been avoiding the hero, now is the time to jump back in with your favorite hacker. Here’s everything there is to know about the latest Overwatch update.

Overwatch Sombra Translocator

Sombra’s Translocator was at the top of the list in the latest Overwatch patch.

Sombra is the only hero that received changes in the October 28 patch notes. Everything else on the list purely focused on general bug fixes. Two main changes for the Damage dealer should make her life easier than ever.

First up, a rare Translocator bug was squashed. Seemingly at random, her teleporting ability could go on its full six-second cooldown if it was destroyed while being used. As with most abilities in Overwatch, if they’re taken out the split moment in which they’re triggered, the game often refunds them right away. Sombra’s translocator should now function just the same.

Moreover, if you’re invisible with the hero, you can now rely on her intel more than ever before. Sombra is supposed to be notified when an enemy spots her while cloaked. That hadn’t been the case from time to time due to a pesky bug. Though the brand new update has completely fixed this issue. 

No matter where you are or how many opposing players spot you, you will now be properly alerted when enemies are onto the case.

Sombra-mains will have a far simpler time while invisible moving forward.

Among the other changes were plenty of fixes for the Workshop mode. Funnily enough, if Sombra is more than double her normal size for whatever reason, she’ll be detected properly in that form too.

The full list of changes in the October 28 patch can be found below.
