Overwatch streamer flabbergasted after discovering how to draw on Dorado

Overwatch streamer ProbablyZoro was left stunned and baffled after his thrilling payload match on Dorado ended in a draw, leaving him totally confused.

Escort maps in Overwatch can produce some of the best matches to watch and play. Both teams get a turn to attack and defend where they try to push the payload as far as possible, and if both teams complete their task, then they get to go again only with less time to work with.

In ProbablyZoro’s second defense, his team gave up the first two points, but managed to halt their opponents before they could fully enter the powerplant section.

This is key, because escort maps have sections where doors need to open to allow the payload through. During those moments, the cart’s progress stops completely. If both teams manage to defend right at that exact spot, draws are possible.

Drawing on payload is difficult, but not impossible.

The Twitch streamer probably thought his match would end in a loss or victory as he respawned as Brigitte, but was in for a stunning surprise.

“It was a draw?!” he gasped as the match result screen popped up. “Wait what?”

“What the f**k?” one of his teammates blurted out.

Players on both teams seemed stunned by the result and spammed question marks in match chat following the bizarre turn of events.

Drawing in payload is extremely difficult and rare, but it normally only happens in games that are super close with both teams already completing the map. Because there’s no extra time given for reaching a checkpoint in overtime, one wrong move can completely end a run.

The only other way to draw in escort is if neither team manages to push the payload at the very start of the map. Sometimes, if a team has a player suspected of cheating, both teams will agree to let the match draw by not touching the payload. That said, it’s certainly not the same or as rare as drawing by accident.

But it’s certainly something to be aware of whenever you find yourself playing in ladder.

Dafran shows off incredible Overwatch Dynamite tactic with Ashe

Twitch streamer-turned-farmer Daniel ‘Dafran’ Francesca showed that he is still insane at Overwatch by utilizing a simple trick with the hero Ashe.

Dafran has long been considered one of the best Overwatch players on the planet, despite only spending one stage in OWL back in season 2. While he was known mostly for his sensational McCree, Soldier, and Tracer plays, the Danish DPS star can also frag out on Ashe.

During a December 3 broadcast, Dafran found himself attacking on Junkertown and in a prime position to help his team capture Point B.

On the Ashe, Dafran noticed all sorts of enemies were grouping in a small room they need to funnel through to get into the streets phase area. With his Widowmaker ally using her ultimate to fully reveal their location, Francesca decided to take matters into his own hands.

Ashe can be a big threat with Dynamite.

With his B.O.B active on the other side of the room and the enemies waiting for the big Omnic butler to disappear before they made their move, Dafran threw his Dynamite barely inside.

Ashe’s Dynamite can be one of the most impactful abilities in Overwatch, dealing massive damage upon the explosion and then a bit more over time. Those closest to the explosion take 50 damage with 100 burn damage coming over time.

Once the Dynamite exploded, the enemy Ashe, Baptiste, Zenyatta and Widowmaker were at his mercy. Speaking of Mercy, the Dane had one pocketing him, making sure he inflicted extra damage.

With some simple hip firing, he was able to eliminate the three targets before ADSing to dink the Widow for the quadruple kill – plus, 60% in brand new ultimate charge for another B.O.B.

“That’s an Overwatch League play, dude!” he exclaimed. “Holy f**k, dude.”

The best part about the whole sequence is just how simple it really was, and there is no reason you can’t replicate it in your games. Just remember how easy Ashe’s Dynamite can be to land if you don’t overcomplicate the toss and opt to just hip fire.

It may not be the flashiest, but it can win entire team fights with relative ease. Give it a shot next time you queue up as DPS.
