Overwatch player thinks playing Brigitte is so easy a child could do it

Brigitte is one of the most talked about heroes in Overwatch right now, players either hate her or they love her, and one player on streamer Jeff ‘emongg’ Anderson’s team during an Overwatch match had a few things to say about the hero.

Brigitte has attracted so much controversy because of the major role she plays in the current metagame, her ability to deal damage while simultaneously healing teammates is invaluable.


But, many players accuse the hero of being OP, and easy to gain wins with, so easy, that one of emongg’s teammate’s said their 2-year-old could probably do it.

After emongg asks his teammate, Fixer, if his kid plays any games, his teammate replies “He’s two-years-old, but he could probably be a Brig player.”


After throwing some shade, Fixer casually asks if his team wants Lucio or Zen as emongg cracks up at his comments.

There have been a lot of insults thrown the way of Brigitte players recently, but saying a toddler could probably do just fine on her in ladder has to hurt.

Who knows? If he gets an early enough start, maybe one day we’ll see Fixer’s son in the Overwatch League playing Brigitte.

The Overwatch community is rallying behind a 26-year-old player who passed away earlier in October after defending a woman from a man who allegedly broke into her home with a knife.

Tiago de Souza, who reportedly played thousands of hours and mained Hanzo, Pharah, Sigma, McCree and Doomfist, reportedly gave his life to save a friend and her daughters.


According to Brazilian media, Tiago was at the woman’s house when her ex-partner broke in with a knife in-hand, trying to attack her.

Investigators say the suspect beat the woman with punches. When Tiago tried to interfere, he was allegedly stabbed and died on the spot.

The suspect later went to the police station in Prudentópolis on his own accord and was detained.

A petition on the website Avaaz describes Tiago as “very fond of science and questioning the mysteries of the universe.”

“He liked several games, but undoubtedly his passion was Overwatch,” the petition continued, noting how he had unlocked four golden guns for different heroes through competitive play.

Tiago enjoyed playing as Hanzo.

“Tiago was an incredible, selfless and generous person, who gave his life to save someone else’s,” the petition said. “We, friends and family, do not want your courageous attitude to be forgotten, and nothing better to honor you than with a tribute in your favorite game.”

So far, over 2,000 people have signed the petition asking Blizzard to honor the player, though they didn’t specify on how they would like the company to pay tribute to Tiago.

Potentially, if Blizzard were going to honor the player, they could do so on the Brazilian Lucio Ball map for the Summer Games event, or even something from Overwatch 2, whenever that game is released.

Blizzard does have a decent track record of honoring its players. Notably, Blizzard immortalized the streamer Reckful by adding a Rogue Trainer NPC with his gamer tag in World of Warcraft.

Hopefully, Blizzard can continue this trend an honor the Brazilian player.
