There have been a lot of awesome Ashe cosplay since Overwatch’s newest hero was revealed at BlizzCon 2018, but none are as great as this kid’s adorable cosplay.

Ashe was revealed during the McCree “Reunion” animated short that premiered during BlizzCon’s opening ceremonies.

After being released into the game shortly after BlizzCon, she went live in competitive play on November 27.

In addition to dressing exactly like Ashe, the young fan even got their dad to join in and dress up as the hero’s ultimate and sidekick B.O.B.

Along with looking the part, the post by user anime_food shows props such as Ashe’s Viper rifle, her Coach Gun and a bundle of dynamite to top it all off.

One user in the comments said instead of B.O.B., this cosplay Ashe’s sidekick could be known as D.A.D.

We’re sure to see plenty more Ashe cosplays as fans spend time playing the new hero and working on outfits, but they’ll have a hard time getting cuter than this one.

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.
