Overwatch League Fans Can Now View Official Stats for the Inaugural Season

The Overwatch League stats page is now online for fans to view.

Fans can now see a full table of basic stats for all players in the league – kills, deaths, damage, healing – and sort by category to see how players rank in each.

In addition to the full table of stats, a more detailed view is also available of each player, including the pick rates of their most popular heroes.

A lack of stats for third parties has been one of the bigger criticisms of the state of Overwatch as an esport. Third party sites like Winston’s Lab have done a good job of compiling statistics, but without access to the Overwatch API it’s an imperfect system.

Blizzard has access to advanced statistics throughout the league, as evidenced by the stats they frequently show on the broadcast. Until now, however, viewers outside of the league have been unable to see the full range of stats.

A tab for the feature has existed on the Overwatch League website since its launch, but it’s taken until the fourth and final stage of the regular season for the numbers to actually become available.

Blizzard reportedly plans to expand the functionality of the statistics page, eventually hoping to include more advanced features like player comparisons and leaderboards.

New Overwatch Ashe skin teased in “Deadlock Rebels” book

An upcoming Overwatch book seems to be hinting at a possible new Ashe skin coming to the game, possibly for the Anniversary or Archives events.

Overwatch fans spotted a new cover for the book online and noticed how Ashe has a completely different look than the one most players are familiar with.

In this, she still sports her white hair, but wears a red jacket and dark black pants while standing back-to-back with McCree, who seems to be drawn in his “Deadlock” skin look from the Archives event.

According to the book’s synopsis on Amazon, Deadlock Rebels takes place when Ashe is still in high school and is arrested before her graduation. As such, her parents cut her off from the family fortune.

Ashe has quickly become one of the most popular Overwatch heroes.

From there, she teams up with her butler B.O.B and McCree to steal back what the book claims is “rightfully hers.”

Furthermore, the synopsis states that the novel will explore the founding of the Deadlock Gang – one of Overwatch’s more underdeveloped factions.

The poster has fans hopeful that they’ll be able to get their hands on this new look Ashe in the form of a future skin.

“Yoooo, Young Ashe looks great. I hope we will get that as a skin since we already got the McCree one?” one asked on Twitter.

“I smell a new Ashe skin coming!” another remarked.

The book is set to release on June 1, 2021, so it doesn’t quite line-up with the new Archives event, which begins in either April or March.

The skin seems connected to Deadlock McCree.

However, the Anniversary event may be very likely, as every time that event has happened it’s run from May to June – which suggests the next event will overlap with the book’s release.

Although nothing is confirmed just yet, and this new look for Ashe could be exclusive to the novel itself, hopefully, Blizzard does end up releasing a skin based on this younger Ashe in the future.
