New York Excelsior’s Kim ‘Pine’ Do-hyeon showed he’s a highlight machine even outside of his signature heroes with incredible Tracer play in ranked Overwatch.
New York Excelsior’s Big Boss is best known for his McCree and Widowmaker play, but during a recent stream he showed that he can be just as formidable on Tracer.
Pine has never been known as a Tracer player, not least because that role for New York Excelsior is filled by Park ‘Saebyeolbe’ Jong-ryeol, considered by many the best player in the world and universally placed in the conversation at minimum.
What Pine is known for, however, is his incredible mechanical skill. Despite not having been a starter for New York Excelsior in Season One, Pine might have had more highlight plays than any other player in the Overwatch League, a product of his incredible aim and an aggressive, flashy play-style.
Apparently that skill set translates perfectly well to Tracer, despite her unique play-style meaning she’s usually distinguished from the more classic hitscan DPS heroes that Pine typically excels with.
As his team is attempting to close out a Watchpoint: Gibraltar game in the first stage on offence, Pine finds a flank and eliminates the enemy Ana. He then makes his way into the back line, playing around his blinks and recalls with perfect precision to prevent enemy reinforcements from contesting the objective.
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.
