Wrecking Ball aka Hammond is one of the most frustrating Overwatch heroes to play against due to his high mobility and durability. With someone as skilled as m0xyy behind the wheel of the hamster ball, magic happens such as this clutch play on Lijang Tower. 

M0xyy has had success in Minecraft Monday, winning with former Overwatch League main tank Félix ‘xQc’ Langyel. It would seem like some of xQc’s skill has rubbed off on the streamer as he showed how dominant he can be in the tank role himself. 

During a September 23 stream, the tank player found himself in a rough situation on Lijang Tower. With the enemy team at 91% and his team in struggling to hold onto the objective, losing control could make a proper regroup for a recontest impossible due to staggered spawns. 

While m0xyy’s penultimate fight is messy with both sides fragging out, the streamer’s team is suffering greater loses and are forced to invest Sound Barrier and Coalescence for sustain.

Even m0xyy himself was kicking himself for not investing his Minefield ultimate once he died after being hooked and focused by a Roadhog. “I didn’t mine because I…” the panicky Twitch streamer struggled to say. “Oh my God, I didn’t know we had ults.”

Blizzard EntertainmentWrecking Ball is an extremely durable and mobile tank.

After respawning, m0xyy went on a mission to keep the point alive with a super fast rollout that involved grappling onto a building near the spawn and with a sharp turn made it back onto the point in mere seconds.

If m0xyy had been any slower, the point would have flipped and it would have been unlikely his team would have emerged victorious. 

Once on the point, he activated Minefield killing the enemy Moira, scored a grapple environmental kill onto the enemy Roadhog and landed a piledriver on an enemy Ana before finishing her off with primary fire. 

Before the enemy Doomfist could get back on to keep his team’s chances alive, m0xyy’s team had 100% of the point and the match was won due to some insanely clutch plays which involved literally all of Wrecking Ball’s abilities. 

Blizzard EntertainmentWrecking Ball’s mobility is arguably his greatest strength.

One of the most things about Overwatch is how a match is never over until it’s over and comebacks are incredibly frequent. From the brink of defeat, one clutch play can turn a game on its head.

M0xyy’s game-winning play is a perfect example of this and one of the reasons he’s aiming to be ranked #1 on the North American ladder.

Myth justifies surprising decision to unfollow everyone on social media

Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani is taking a new approach on social media, as the popular TSM content creator has revealed why he felt it was time to “experiment” by unfollowing everyone on all of his accounts.

Myth is one of the most popular content creators on the internet. The 21-year-old boasts over seven million followers on both Twitch and Instagram, with another four million subscribers on YouTube as well. He’s grown a massive community with his energetic vibes and impressive gameplay, but Myth just made a drastic change.

Across all social media accounts, the content creator has now wiped the slate clean. He no longer follows any streamer pals, no business contacts, or anyone in between. Myth follows a grand total of zero accounts across all of his platforms.

Why make such a sudden change? Myth explained it all in a series of tweets on December 2. In a difficult year as it is, he felt it was the right time to “experiment with having zero people followed across [his] social media sites.”

One of the main factors behind this decision was to stop himself from “comparing” to others. It can be easy to see idyllic Instagram posts, for instance, and feel a little down in the dumps by comparison. Everyone can empathize with that experience these days. So in order to block it out, his social media is now wiped clean.

The current global crisis certainly didn’t help either. “I’ve had some of the loneliest moments of my life,” he explained. “Social media doesn’t make that feeling any better, at least with the way I currently use it. It just ends up making me feel like other people got it better”

Obviously, most social media personalities are often sharing the highlights in their lives. Rarely do we see our favorite content creators truly breaking down that barrier and sharing everything. Most of the time, we only see what they want us to see. Myth is well aware of this and understands “that’s not the full reality of things.”

Despite this, it’s still a “really draining mindset to have,” he explained. “I wanna eradicate it.” In light of his transparency, countless others reached out to commend his decision. 

“You’re an amazing streamer,” Dakotaz followed up. “Do whatever you gotta do.”

While Myth has unfollowed everyone, he wanted to stress that he’ll still be active and interacting with his fanbase. “I can still see and appreciate comments and messages,” he added.

Don’t expect Myth to keep his accounts this clean forever though. It may be a solid reprieve during this chaotic year, but even he joked that in “six months [he’ll] definitely be back” to his usual ways.
