The LA Gladiators have released the voice comms of their team pulling off an incredibly creative play against the London Spitfire.
In the first series of their quarter-final match against the London Spitfire, the Gladiators pulled off one of the most creative set plays of the entire Overwatch League.
On the offensive side of King’s Row, the Gladiators made their push onto point A by rushing immediately past the point, all the way through the second stage of the map and wrapping back around to claim the high ground over the point.
What the London Spitfire didn’t realize, as they repositioned to deal with the Gladiators’ return to the point, was that only five members of the Los Angeles squad had made the push.
Lane ‘Surefour’ Roberts wasn’t with the team, as his hero selection of Brigitte would have implied. Instead, he was waiting in the offensive spawn room, and as the rest of his team moved to engage the Spitfire – now positioned on the side of the point closer to the offensive spawn – he switched to Widowmaker and sprung the trap, eliminating unsuspecting London members and guaranteeing success.
The play resulted in a quick first capture for the Gladiators that ultimately led to their securing the map and the series in dominant fashion. You can now listen to what that moment was like inside the team, from the planning and co-ordination of the play to the celebration of success.
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.
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.
