Overwatch League casters and analysts are set for a rematch of the Talent Takedown event at All-Stars.

Talent Takedown saw members of the Overwatch League talent roster, representing the Atlantic and Pacific Divisions, go head-to-head in a competitive match at the All-Star event on August 25-26.

Somewhat unsurprisingly it was the Pacific team, featuring former pro player Jonathon ‘Reinforce’ Larsson, that were victorious at All-Stars, with a convincing 2-0 win in the best-of-three.

Now, members of the two teams are going to clash again, as they go head-to-head online in a match streamed by various players on each side.

One of the most entertaining aspects of the Talent Takedown was the trash talk and interactions that viewers heard snippets of during the listen-ins ahead of each round. With multiple streams on both sides of the upcoming rematch, viewers will be able to hear what goes on within each squad as they battle for supremacy.

As not all of the original rosters are available for this match, the Atlantic Division squad has drafted in Matt ‘Mr. X’ Morello’s fiancée, Minks, as a substitute, with other subs possibly set to appear. Chris Puckett suggested that former Dallas Fuel main tank Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel could help balance out the teams, offering a counter to Pacific’s Reinforce.

The match is set to take place at 6pm PT (9pm ET, 2am BST, 11am AEST).

Overwatch players looking to find some new synergy between two unlikely heroes should look no further than a lethal combination with Tracer and Wrecking Ball.

Wrecking Ball can be one of the most annoying heroes in the game to deal with, constantly booping people away while remaining in his ball form.

Meanwhile, Tracer can do very much of the same, buzzing in the backline, harassing supports and just being a general menace to deal with thanks to her Blinks, Recall and small hit box.

Together, the threat of Tracer and Wrecking Ball can really dominate uncoordinated teams, but with a little coordination on their own part, the two can destroy entire groups with a neat ultimate attack.

Wrecking Ball can be a major threat in the back line.

As demonstrated by Twitch streamer ‘rene_ow,’ the Masters ranked Hammond player spotted a pack of enemies all grouped up on the Busan map.

After grappling to go in for a major boop on the four, the player’s allied Tracer blinked in and stuck her Pulse Bomb on the McCree.

With the McCree booped into the rest of the adversaries, the result ended up being a massive quad kill, with both supports and DPS heroes on the enemy team eliminated swiftly.

The insane combo was well-received by the team, which celebrated the quad kill. “That was nuts!” they cried with glee.

Perhaps the best part of this combo is that you don’t need the stick to connect. In theory, you can have Wrecking Ball knock the enemies towards Tracer or her Pulse Bomb radius to secure the frags.

This type of team play may take some serious effort to get right, but if you have a partner you synergize well with, it’s always possible that this combination can help you win Overwatch games, and rank up in style.
