Overwatch pro Mickie hilariously reacts to his clutch play with D.Va technique

Dallas Fuel’s Pongphop ‘Mickie’ Rattanasangchod had a hilarious reaction to his own ability after pulling off an epic play in ranked Overwatch.

Mickie pulled off an incredible out-play against an enemy Reinhardt while defending the first stage of Hollywood, and reacted in characteristic fashion.

Seeing an undefended D.Va with no shield to hide behind, the enemy Reinhardt attempted to land his Earthshatter, having been nano-boosted by his Ana.

As Reinhardt made to put the hammer down, however, Mickie hit D.Va’s boosters and went vertical, climbing enough to avoid the ultimate entirely.

Mickie’s dodge meant the charged Reinhardt had no targets to eliminate, and was quickly taken down by the defending team. The push was repelled, two ultimates spent for nothing.

“I’m so good at this game!” a delighted Mickie exclaimed, shortly followed by his team-mate asking “wait, what did you do?”

The technique is certainly one worth bearing in mind for D.Va players, although it does require some fairly swift reactions.

Mickie originally made his name with his D.Va play, excelling on the hero when he came in as an emergency substitute for Team Envy in APEX Season One, ultimately helping secure the title and remaining with the team as they became the Dallas Fuel.

Unfortunately, during the Overwatch League’s inaugural season Mickie struggled to maintain his prowess relative to some of the other elite flex tanks – although he did adapt exceptionally well to the addition of Brigitte in Stage 4, the Fuel’s most successful stage of Season One.

Mickie will likely be looking to reestablish himself among the world’s great D.Va players in the second season of the Overwatch League, which kicks off on February 14.


Incredible Overwatch custom game lets you drive a ‘Lamborghini’

An Overwatch racing game might not be all too far off now as a stylish new Workshop mode places heroes behind the wheel, allowing you to drive through any given map.

Driving a car is now possible in Overwatch thanks to the power of the Workshop. Players have modded their own custom vehicle into existence, allowing you to take it for a spin and drift through the game.

It’s not a simple trick that lets your hero move faster than usual. It’s a proper vehicle design that you can take control of and drive around. 

In fact, it’s modeled after the Lamborghini Aventador SV, giving you some style and some speed as you cruise through the world of Overwatch.

Ever wanted to drive a Lambo? Now you can… in Overwatch.

“I’ve turned Overwatch into a Streetwatch,” GraczCourier’s Gaming revealed on January 21. While it might look a little different to what you had in mind, it functions better than perhaps any Workshop vehicle to date.

A collection of pipes and electricity effects bring the template of the car to life. Players have complete control over the direction of the Lambo, along with its speed as well.

You can drift around corners, activate nitrous, and even change the radio station while you’re in the driver’s seat. Not only that, but the custom mode appears to work across every map in the game.

This means you can boost through Hanamura, take in the sights of Blizzard World, or jet around London on King’s Row. Handling looks to be extremely precise as an accompanying video showcased just what’s possible with the Aventador in Overwatch.

While it’s a blast to drive around, there’s a unique challenge to it as well. How fast can you get through your favorite map? How long can you drift in one attempt? You and your teammates can put it all to the test.

The flashy Workshop mode is available for anyone to check out in-game now. Try it out for yourself with the following Workshop code: 4XQP4
