New Overwatch League (OWL) pro Daniel ‘dafran’ Francesca was stunned to see the prices of his team’s jerseys and advised viewers to hold off on buying them, which made the next moment a bit awkward.

The OWL is set for a thrilling sophomore season as new teams and hyped young talent have entered the arena, but one player isn’t too keen on the premium price for the athletic apparel that represent his team.

During his stream, dafran was enlightened to the $85 price tag of his team’s jersey and told his viewers to hold off on buying them until the price goes down, which made a viewer’s donation telling him he’d already purchased one pretty awkward.

Atlanta ReignOne of the latest teams to enter the Overwatch League has a clean inaugural jersey, but not all are on board with the price.

Dafran was still reeling from the shock of the price when a Twitch donation chimed on his screen.

“Just bought your jersey, fat poggers,” a viewer wrote. “Hopefully I’ll see you at one of the games and you’ll be able to sign it…”

The message was met with an ironic chuckle from the Overwatch ametuer-turned-pro, since moments prior he’d just called out his team because of the “crazy” price.

“$85? Dude, what the fuck! Why’s it so expensive?” dafran asked viewers. “Don’t fucking buy it dude, it’s a waste of money. Too expensive, they need to lower that shit.”

The streamer took a step back from the hilarious blunder to thank his viewer for buying the apparel while telling the fan he would sign it if they saw each other at a game.


Cheeky Overwatch trick lets Baby D.Va score environmental kills

Overwatch players looking to find a new lethal tactic with D.Va should look no further than this trick to surprise and tilt enemy teams.

Since 2016, Overwatch fans have taken highly to the hero D.Va, sporting countless cosplays, creating art, buying merchandise, you name it. Part of the reason for this is just how stylish the gamer-turned-mech pilot is.

As it turns out, however, even outside of her pink mech, D.Va can pack a punch and even eliminate any enemy hero in the game if the opportunity presents itself.

Most people know that D.Va’s Call Mech ability does a bit of damage if you use it directly on top of an enemy player, but not everyone realizes it also has knockback capabilities.

D.Va is one of the most popular heroes, in and out of mech.

Boops can be one of the best ways in Overwatch to quickly deal with enemies regardless of their HP. Anyone from Roadhog to even Tracer (especially if limited by cooldowns) can fall victim to a well-timed push off the edge of a map.

As Reddit user ‘eregis’ showed, despite being at a disadvantage against a Soldier 76 who put down his Biotic Field for health restoration, the confrontation ended in their favor thanks to the knockback of Call Mech.

While on Rialto, the D.Va player had the Call Mech ability ready, but waited a bit to activate it. First, the player lured the enemy Soldier 76 to a bit of an unfavorable position on Rialto with his back to the water.

After getting the victim close enough to the ledge, the D.Va used Call Mech and sent 76 off the map and to his demise.

Of course, this trick is a bit of a high-risk play. Baby D.Va is tied with Tracer for the lowest-health hero in the game at only 150. However, unlike Tracer, D.Va does haven’t Blink or Recall to get out of tricky situations, so being able to time the Call Mech perfectly can be tough.

Next time you find yourself as Baby D.Va and an opportunity presents itself, try to see if you can secure frags with this ability. Your opponents will never see it coming.
