There isn’t a professional Lúcioball league yet, but that hasn’t stopped Overwatch fan and artist Tagni from coming up with some awesome soccer-style jerseys for even more Overwatch League teams.

Lúcioball is a minigame available during Overwatch’s Summer Games event that has two teams of three Lúcios face off in a soccer match using only boops and melee attacks to move the ball.

The Los Angeles Valiant get a very dignified green jersey and a nice white away jersey, along with a gold alternate that really works well.

Houston’s bright neon green makes them one of the most unique looking team’s in the Overwatch League, and it looks pretty good here as well working as an accent on the first two, then as the main color on the alternate.

Finally, the Florida Mayhem might have the best jersey Tagni has made yet, with the black, Miami Vice inspired alternate jersey using the color scheme that Mayhem Academy ended up going with.

Tagni has created even more jerseys than just the ones shown here, and posted them all to his Twitter page.

There may not be a professional Lúcioball League just yet, but if they ever do start one, Tagni will have the jersey designs ready to go.

New Overwatch Shield Bash tech makes Brigitte even more powerful

A new Overwatch trick has just been discovered that could make Brigitte an even bigger threat on the battlefield than she already is.

Brigitte has been one of the game’s most controversial heroes since release thanks to her high levels of sustain, crowd control, armor, and healing. Despite multiple nerfs and reworks, she remains one of the best heroes in the right hands.

Now, players have found a completely new trick with her that is sure to make many players rage and call for nerfs to the Swedish shield maiden.

The trick, which was posted to a Korean YouTube account, shows that if Brigitte Shield Bashes at the exact same time she’s hit with an enemy’s attack that does knockback, she can travel far distances.

Shield Bash already has some slight movement advantages, but when combined with an enemy’s attack, she can torpedo across the map and even clear gaps that other heroes are unable to.

As you can see, when Brigitte gets hit in the back by Sigma’s Hyper Spheres, they do just enough knockback to allow the hero to use them to her advantage.

With this trick, Brigitte can even go from one side of Rialto’s bridge to the other in one swift movement, although it will take some getting used to if players want to pull it off in an actual game.

That said, enemy players could potentially use this to their own advantage, such as by hitting Brigitte with a melee attack right as she Shield Bashes.

In this clip by Overwatch streamer Aspen, she goes flying all over the map on Hollywood and had no idea why. As it turns out, it was because she was hit by a melee from a Tracer player just before bashing.

If timed right, this could cause Brigitte players to go flying off of maps with environmental hazards such as Nepal Sanctum.

Of course, with this new discovery, there also comes the possibility that Blizzard decides to patch it out. Only time will tell how the developers decide to handle it.
