Overwatch pro Phillip ‘Kragie’ Krag felt some instant karma after running into his former team-mate in a ranked game.
Kragie encountered Cameron ‘Fusions’ Bosworth, who he’d played with on British Hurricane, on the opposite team in a game on Volskaya Industries.
After being unable to hold on defense, Kragie prepared for the offensive round by stating “we can’t lose to Fusions.”
“I agree,” said fellow former British Hurricane player Daniel ‘FunnyAstro’ Hathaway “fuck this Fusions guy.”
Though he couldn’t possibly have heard the remarks, Fusions seemed to have a point to prove at the start of the round. The first push by the attacking team was devastated by Fusions’ Reinhardt, who somehow managed to build up his Earthshatter ultimate a mere 18 seconds into the round.
Fusions also captured his own perspective of the incredible opening play.

Kragie and FunnyAstro’s team was ultimately unable to even capture the first point, with the game ending in a 2-0 victory for Fusions and co.
Fusions’ first real experience under the international spotlight was at the 2018 World Cup, when Team UK upset the United States – who many had picked as favorites for the tournament – to reach the semi-finals.
Despite having not been the original starting main tank, with Christopher ‘ChrisTFer’ Graham filling the position for the Paris Qualifier, Fusions stood out in the UK’s playoff performance, praised both for his mechanical skills and the shot-calling he reportedly brought to the team.
In the wake of his break-out performance, Fusions has been signed to a two-way contract with Boston Uprising and Uprising Academy, meaning Boston will have the option of fielding him in Season Two of the Overwatch League, which kicks off on February 14.
