Overwatch League pro hits out at DPS players not pulling their weight

There’s been a lot of talk in Overwatch recently about one-tricks, or players who only pick one hero during competitive matches, no matter what; now L.A. Valiant player Scott ‘Custa’ Kennedy has explained how DPS players unwilling to switch are basically “shooting themselves in the foot.”

Ever since former Dallas Fuel player Brandon ‘Seagull’ Larned put out a video on the state of Overwatch, there has been a steady discussion about what could be done to improve the ranked play experience.

Some players have complained about one-tricks and even suggested implementing some sort of system to force players to play a certain role for a team, but Custa explains that DPS players unwilling to switch off of DPS are just as much of a problem as one-tricks.

During a Twitch stream on December 6, Custa explained to viewers that DPS players who complained about one-tricks but were unwilling to switch off of DPS themselves are essentially the same thing they’re complaining about.

“If you’re not willing to play like Zarya in GOATs and shit like that, then your essentially a one-trick and you’re part of the problem,” he told viewers.

“It’s like people shooting themselves in the foot, and then they’re like ‘wow, I shot myself in the foot, this life sucks,’” Custa continued. “Yeah, that’s definitely what happens when you shoot yourself in the foot!”

Custa will be on the Los Angeles Valiant’s roster going into Season Two of the Overwatch League and will face off against the new Hangzhou Spark team at 3 PM PST on Saturday, February 16, 2019.


Incredible Overwatch custom game lets you drive a ‘Lamborghini’

An Overwatch racing game might not be all too far off now as a stylish new Workshop mode places heroes behind the wheel, allowing you to drive through any given map.

Driving a car is now possible in Overwatch thanks to the power of the Workshop. Players have modded their own custom vehicle into existence, allowing you to take it for a spin and drift through the game.

It’s not a simple trick that lets your hero move faster than usual. It’s a proper vehicle design that you can take control of and drive around. 

In fact, it’s modeled after the Lamborghini Aventador SV, giving you some style and some speed as you cruise through the world of Overwatch.

Ever wanted to drive a Lambo? Now you can… in Overwatch.

“I’ve turned Overwatch into a Streetwatch,” GraczCourier’s Gaming revealed on January 21. While it might look a little different to what you had in mind, it functions better than perhaps any Workshop vehicle to date.

A collection of pipes and electricity effects bring the template of the car to life. Players have complete control over the direction of the Lambo, along with its speed as well.

You can drift around corners, activate nitrous, and even change the radio station while you’re in the driver’s seat. Not only that, but the custom mode appears to work across every map in the game.

This means you can boost through Hanamura, take in the sights of Blizzard World, or jet around London on King’s Row. Handling looks to be extremely precise as an accompanying video showcased just what’s possible with the Aventador in Overwatch.

While it’s a blast to drive around, there’s a unique challenge to it as well. How fast can you get through your favorite map? How long can you drift in one attempt? You and your teammates can put it all to the test.

The flashy Workshop mode is available for anyone to check out in-game now. Try it out for yourself with the following Workshop code: 4XQP4
