Overwatch League doesn’t have a Lúcioball division just yet, but that didn’t stop one fan from making some soccer-style jerseys for teams in case they do.

Lúcioball is a popular minigame available in Overwatch during the Summer Games event, where it’s available in quick play and ranked modes.

Overwatch League included Lúcioball games with various players during their All-Star weekend in August.

The jersey concepts were created by Overwatch League fan and graphic designer Tagni, and so far he’s made designs for the London Spitfire and the Philadelphia Fusion.

Even though he’s only made two designs so far, it seems like Tagni intends to make Lúcioball League jerseys for every team in the league.

It will be particularly interesting to see what Tagni does with the Hangzhou sparks pink scheme, one of the most unique in the entire league.

Sadly the jerseys aren’t real yet, but Overwatch League organizations still have to reveal their new merchandise before the start of Season 2.

Overwatch players discover secret Reaper buff in new patch

Overwatch players with Reaper in their hero repertoire will be happy to know the Talon DPS was on the receiving end of a powerful quality-of-life change that buffs the shotgun-wielding damage dealer.

Undocumented changes aren’t exactly anything new in Overwatch, but it’s always a bit surprising when a hero receives a buff that wasn’t listed in the official patch notes.

The latest Overwatch update on February 18 brought in some changes for Reaper that saw his range increase at the cost of some damage reduction. Although the changes were a net buff, there was something else lurking in the update that further increases his strength.

As noticed by player ‘TheeNinjaBanana’ on Reddit, Reaper can now cancel his reload to use Shadow Step – something that he previously was unable to do.

Most heroes in Overwatch are already able to cancel their reload animations through the use of abilities, but, for whatever reason, Reaper was unable to until now.

Shadow Step isn’t exactly the most powerful ability in Overwatch, but it does have some uses, especially when it comes to quickly traversing maps and gaining access to the high ground.

Perfectly-timed Shadow Steps can also be used to attain a brief moment of invincibility, which can save Reaper from ultimates such as D.Va’s Self-Destruct or Junkrat’s Riptire in the event his Wraith Form is on cooldown.

It’s also extremely useful as a way to get back on the map if he ever gets booped off. Previously, if Reaper was reloading and got knocked off, it would be lights out, but now, he can teleport back freely.

Overall, players seem pleased with the buff. “I did this by accident the other day yesterday, pretty happy with this change,” one user commented.

“It’s a great change because that was literally the only ability in the whole game that couldn’t cancel reload,” another remarked.

For anyone who mains Overwatch’s edgelord, be sure to remember this buff as it could end up paying dividends if you find yourself in a tough situation off the map.
