It didn’t take long after the release of the latest Assault/2CP map added to the game.

As the name suggests, the map takes players to Overwatch’s version of The City of Lights, and offers several different areas to explore, like a cabaret and a police station that features mugshots of Roadhog and Junkrat, just to name a few.

A few rooms on the map have pianos that are 100% playable, for example whatever note players shoot, that note will actually play.

Obviously heroes with more accuracy, like Widow or Hanzo, would have an easier time playing than say, Reinhardt.

Overwatch streamer ‘MaCsPatatin’ even busted out “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” which sets the bar and officially makes Zarya the best piano player in Overwatch.

There are multiple playable pianos spread throughout the map, there’s one just off of Point A in a green room with stairs, and another outside of the defender’s spawn by Point B opposite the complimentary buffet.

Another feature is the Omnic singer Luna, who serenades the attacking team as they wait in the attacking spawn, which is also the Cabaret building.

No word has been given on when the map will make it to the main game, but stick with Dexerto and follow us on Twitter @OverwatchTXT for all the latest Overwatch news and updates.

The 2020 Overwatch League season has now come to an end and teams have already begun to act on new roster shuffles. Mere hours after being let go by the Los Angeles Gladiators, Roni ‘LhCloud’ Tiihonen had some harsh words for his former team.

It wasn’t the most successful year for the LA Gladiators. The organization finished among the Top 8 in North American playoffs, failing to win a map against Philadelphia Fusion and Florida Mayhem. With the offseason now underway, teams are free to make roster adjustments as needed.

Among the first to make a move was the LA franchise. They let LhCloudy go after just a few months with the team. It wasn’t long before the Main Tank expert took to Twitch and reacted to the news.

“I play 10 hours a day, I don’t get paid s***, and then I get thrown into the trash,” he said on October 12. “That’s just life.”

The Finnish pro came to the league in 2019, joining Paris Eternal after a run with Team Gigantti in Contenders. He was soon traded over to the Gladiators, though his time spent with the team appears to have left him quite bitter.

When asked what his biggest disappointment was for the year, he aimed his complaints at the coaching staff. “I think our coaching staff made a lot of stupid f***ing decisions in our playoffs.”

“They come to me after… oh s***, you were right.” Ultimately, the team was unable to win a map in their playoff run. Even after apologizing for not taking his supposed advice, LhCloud believed that it “didn’t mean anything.”

While his initial comments were scathing, he soon followed up by explaining that everyone on the team worked hard for the games.

“I think we just made wrong decisions in the playoffs… it’s not just the coaches fault, it’s everybody’s fault,” he added.

After wrapping up his Twitch stream for the day, he took to Twitter to apologize for his comments. “I just wanted to say I really fu**** up today and said stupid stuff on stream. I was very emotional and it was very stupid of me to blame others. I live for OW and dedicate all of my hours to it so hearing that I was going to be released crushed my soul.”

The offseason has only just begun so there’s still plenty of weeks ahead of LhCloudy to find a new team. In case you missed the closing moments of the 2020 Overwatch League finals, here’s how things played out.
