Overwatch League fan and artist Tagni is at it again, he’s created even more awesome Lucioball-style jerseys for the Shanghai Dragons, Chengdu Hunters and Vancouver Titans.

Tagni has created a number of football-style jerseys for several teams in the Overwatch League after setting out a personal goal to make jerseys for every team.

The jersey concepts look so good, they could be on display and for sale at the Blizzard Arena for the opening week of Overwatch League Season Two, if only they were real.

Tagni posted all of his impressive creations to his Twitter page, where the full collection can be seen.

The Chengdu Jersey features the new club’s orange, black and gold theme. The home jersey has prominent orange design, the Away has a clean white look, and while the Alternates have a sleek a black finish.

Shanghai may have gone 0-40 in Overwatch League season one, but Tagni has still given them a kit worthy of a championship side.

Red, white, gold and black are used for the jerseys along with a very nice looking dragon scale pattern as the base.

Finally, the Vancouver Titans jersey was Tagni’s most recent creation. They sport the same blue, green and white color pattern like the new Canadian Overwatch team and the NHL’s Vancouver Canucks.

The Titans logo looks really classy on the shirt, and despite fans feelings on Vancouver’s color scheme, these jerseys make them work together.

Unfortunately, these jerseys are only concepts, but Tagni will continue making these pieces of art throughout the Overwatch League Season, which begins on February 14, until he gets to them all.

Overwatch players freak out at Baptiste’s huge new Amplification Matrix

Baptiste was the recipient of plenty of buffs in the latest Overwatch Experimental Card, including a major change to the size of his Amplification Matrix that is freaking out the game’s community.

The October 22 patch increased the width of the Haitian hero’s ultimate by a whopping four meters – up to nine from its previous five.

Now, Baptiste’s “window” as the community calls it, looks more like a garage door bigger than any shield in the game by a fair margin.

Keep in mind that the whole purpose of the Amplification Matrix is to double the damage or healing of any shot fired through it. Now, it’s extremely unlikely that teammates will ever have a reason to not shoot through the ultimate as it’s near impossible to miss.

The community has been joking about the size increase. On Reddit, LukarWarrior joked, “Baptiste, now available in IMAX,” suggesting that it’s not as big as a movie theater screen.

Others, such as educational content creator SVB noted how the ultimate is wider than the streets on King’s Row.

That said, it has plenty of uses on other maps where its entire width can be put to good use. BlazeBubble9 documented how there are so many chokes where the new window can come in handy.

Baptiste’s new Amp Matrix can come in handy on Numbani.

For instance, while defending or attacking first point on Numbani, the new ultimate can take up a whole spot on the high ground letting a whole team fire at will onto the objective doing double damage.

In another, you can see how trying to gain or prevent access to the bridge on Eichenwalde second is a breeze with the new ultimate as it perfectly fits within the choke.

Pushing into Eichenwalde just got a bit easier.

Of course, because the change is on the Experimental Mode there’s a chance it doesn’t hit the live game, but in the past many of the buffs tested there end up going through, so players should prepare regardless.

Only time will tell if this ultimate buff changes how often players decide to pick the support in their matches.
