OWL analyst Soe Gschwind-Penski sang a song about what it is like to queue in the Overwatch Competitive playlist recently, notably dealing with the current meta of GOATS.

Starting around the introduction of Brigitte, GOATS is a team composition that involves all tanks and healers. The comp leaves out highlight reel DPS characters, leaving some to complain about how stale the current state of Overwatch is.


Although Blizzard has steadily tried to switch things up, most notably with nerfs to Brigitte and a major buff to tank-killer Reaper, GOATS is still here.

Soe let out her meta frustrations with a catchy song, accompanied by her ukulele.


“Lately, I’m running into the same comp, on every map that I’m playing,” sings Soe, to the tune of Riptide by Vance Joy. “Whatever happened to 2-2-2?” Soe wonders, in reference to GOATS being made up of 3 tanks and 3 healers.

You can find Soe next at the Overwatch League when Season 2 kicks off in the middle of February. It will be the first time the elite OWL players have played since the introduction of the GOATS meta, so the game may get some new counters or an entirely new meta once the pros have a competitive look. 

The preseason schedule has apparently leaked ahead of time, with expansion team Paris taking on NYXL to open the OWL preseason schedule on February 9.


Insane Overwatch Wrecking Ball Tracer combo obliterates enemy teams

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.
