Overwatch streamer pretends to not understand English when asked to switch heroes

Being asked to switch heroes in Overwatch can really rub some people the wrong way, so when Overwatch streamer Saqib ‘LIRIK’ Zahid was asked to switch by a teammate, he just pretended not to speak English.

As the round begins, LIRIK and his team are in the attacking spawn of Hanamura, when the streamer decides to play as Overwatch’s newest hero, Ashe.

Ashe is still in that weird spot for Overwatch heroes just after release, as she’s been out long enough to be in competitive, but some players are still wary of teammates picking Ashe, for some reason.

Right as LIRIK chooses Ashe, his teammate asks him to switch to McCree.

“Are you fucking kidding me? First game and he’s telling me to play some other shit,” the streamer complained before getting on mic and telling his team he didn’t speak English.

“No Englando, no,” LIRIK said in his best Spanglish. “Por favor, no.”

The streamer thinks he has his team fooled, until the guy that asked him to switch starts speaking Spanish, much better than LIRIK was able to.

“No Español, No Español,” LIRIK responds, before laughing at how he was exposed almost instantly.

The latest Overwatch PTR update on January 7 introduced some changes that could shake up the game’s current meta, but didn’t include any updates or fixes for Ashe.


Overwatch pro Super returns on Jimmy Fallon: When to watch

OWL star Matthew “Super” DeLisi has been added as a guest on the show for the second time, linking up with popular presenter Jimmy Fallon. 

The Overwatch League is full of shining personalities, but it’s safe to say that the captain of reigning back-to-back champions San Francisco Shock is one of the league’s boldest and brightest.

The 20-year-old main tank player has certainly won the hearts of OWL fans, not only because his plays are the definition of brilliance, but because in every interview he features in his enthusiasm for the game is infectious.

This is likely why Jimmy Fallon has elected to bring back the OWL star for the 26 October episode of the classic American talkshow, The Tonight Show.

This isn’t Super’s first time on The Tonight Show

Back in 2019 Super made his inaugural television appearance alongside former Overwatch flex player turned Valorant star Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won. Both players provided America’s viewers with insight into how the esports world works, discussing their rigorous schedules and sharing how many hours they sink into the game.

Super’s guest appearance on the show coincided with the team’s 2019 victory over the Vancouver Titans in the OWL finals, therefore it makes a lot of sense that Super has been asked to return to the show following a dominant performance over Seoul Dynasty.

When to watch and why

It’s nice to see esports becoming more prominent in mainstream media, so it’s worth tuning in to support the growth of esports, as well as learn a little bit about Overwatch as well. Super certainly knows the game inside out.

You can tune in to watch The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon at 11:35pm ET on NBC on Monday, 26 October to see Super alongside superstars Sterling K. Brown and Zoe Lister-Jones.
