Paladins is a similar multiplayer, team-based hero shooter released in 2016 by Hi-Rez studios a few months after Overwatch that ended up being overshadowed by the Blizzard powerhouse.

The game does still have a smaller, dedicated community, but this clip makes it clear that Overwatch players still don’t want to hear anything about Paladins.

“Bro, don’t talk about that game in this game,” the Hanzo player tells Dethroner as the round starts.

Overwatch may have Overwatch League and a bigger player base than Paladins, but obviously the rivalry between the two hasn’t gone anywhere.
