Overwatch players discover Moira is broken in Mirror 1v1 matches

Overwatch players have discovered that Moira vs Moira match ups can go on practically forever given the right circumstances.

Moira can put out a lot of healing which is nice during a regular Overwatch match, but in a 1v1 matchup against another Moira, it can make her seemingly unkillable.

Reddit user Thanatos1479 detailed this phenomenon in a video, where he and another player in a 1v1 mirror match are both Moira and unable to really get anything done.

Blizzard EntertainmentThere seem to be no winners in a Moira vs Moira 1v1.

Just chilling, doing Moira things

After sizing each other up, Thanatos and his opponent decide to stand in a room and drain each other while healing themselves.

Just when you think it’s about to end or something different is going to happen, Moira (doesn’t really matter which one) pops their ultimate and the cycle begins anew.

Plenty of players are wondering why Blizzard would allow this to happen, but it does require two Moiras who prefer confined spaces to running all over the map with Fade.

Even if there is a relatively slim chance of this situation happening to everyone who plays 1v1 matches, Thanatos’ clip is still pretty hilarious.

A major new Overwatch patch

Moira didn’t get touched in the latest Overwatch patch but plenty of other heroes did, including McCree, who is now an absolute killing machine.

Overwatch also started Baptiste’s Reunion Challenge, which gives players a chance to earn new sprays and a new skin by winning up to nine matches before July 1.

The patch also brought the Replay feature to the main game and console, which gives players plenty of new content to check out.


Overwatch 2 reportedly won’t release in 2021, new heroes “unlikely”

A new Overwatch 2 report is further casting doubt on the sequel releasing in 2021, but it hasn’t completely ruled out the possibility of new heroes coming out for the current game.

Lots of new rumors about Overwatch 2 have been swirling lately, with notable insider Metro, who originally leaked info about the game prior to its announcement, claiming development is proceeding very slowly.

Now, an Overwatch League source has reportedly claimed that the 2021 season will only be played on one game.

According to a report from The Game Haus’ Robert Hanes, a team source revealed that the reason the season was delayed to April was for teams to get players’ visas approved and so the league could figure out the format.

We’ve been waiting on Overwatch 2 news for what seems like forever.

This, unfortunately, rules out any hope fans may have had that the season’s delay was a sign that Overwatch 2 would be releasing soon.

While this doesn’t rule out a potential beta version of Overwatch 2 being released, especially with BlizzCon 2021 in February, it’s unlikely we get the full game in any capacity.

That all said, the source does have some potentially good news. When asked about new heroes coming in the 2021 season, the source said “TBD on new heroes, but seems unlikely.”

Overwatch 2 is heavily focused on PvE gameplay.

Previously, the Overwatch devs have said that Echo would be the last hero released for the original game, so even getting a “to be decided” on this could give us a touch of hope.

If development is going very slow, it’s possible the devs may throw fans a bone in the form of a new hero to tide them over in the meantime.

The OWL season is scheduled to begin in April and conclude a few months later. Assuming a new hero isn’t revealed at BlizzCon, the only logical point to introduce a new character could be in-between one of the four tournaments.

“Push” is a new game mode coming to Overwatch 2.

This narrows down the possible timeframes where a new hero could make their way to the game while still being playable during the season.

In any case, we’ll hopefully learn a lot more about Overwatch 2 at BlizzCon, but at this rate, don’t expect to see a release date.
