Former Overwatch pro turned full-time streamer Phillip ‘Kragie’ Krag showed why he is the number one ranked tank in Europe, by turning what seemed to be an epic fail into a game-winning play.
During a February 11 stream, Kragie’s team was up 1-0 on Illios, with a chance to secure the round and match victory if they could hold onto the point.
With only 98 HP, the streamer chased an enemy Widowmaker behind the point and activated his Primal Rage ultimate to restore his health, before giving chase to his opponents trying to take control of the objective.

Hilariously, however, the top-ranked tank couldn’t find a way to fit through the window on Lighthouse. After missing his first two jumps in awkward fashion, the third time was the charm as he managed to land onto the point.
Then in the most casual way possible, all while joking about Overwatch League pro Benbest, the Danish star scored a whopping four environmental kills.
“Holy sh*t! I got four!” he yelled before his 1000 HP health pool drained to zero.
While his team did end up losing the point eventually, the Winston play was huge, and it ended up being the play of the game, which meant all of Kragie’s teammates could see his epic fail turned magic 4K.
“Watch this!” he cried. “Watch this! Oh my God, dude. This is crazy.”
The rest of the team, and Kragie, started laughing hysterically when they had the chance to relive the face-palm moment in the post-game lobby.
Among those who couldn’t believe the play was fellow streamer Redshell who covered his mouth to keep from making too much noise. Still, despite the muffled sound, he still shouted “no way!”
Overall the play just goes to show why you shouldn’t give up. Had Kragie tried to enter the point through another opening he may not have picked up those four kills which helped his team win the game.
It’s also a good reminder that even the best players, such as the number one tank, can mess up. Still, it was a fantastic turnaround given the circumstances.
