Teams and players in the Overwatch League are getting ready for a new start as the 2019 Season is set begin on February 14, and the Philadelphia Fusion are already making a statement with an incredible new design for their new jerseys.

The Fusion are one of the original Overwatch League teams from the inaugural season, and ended up losing to the London Spitfire in the first ever OWL Grand Finals.

Now it looks like the Fusion want to be one of the best-looking teams in the league as they attempt to finish the job from last year.

The new jerseys do away with the team’s Atom logo on front, an instead goes for a clean, stylized “Fusion” written across the chest.

Instead of using orange for the home kit, the new jerseys will feature black as the main home color with an orange sleeve for the right arm.

The away jerseys are still white, with the same orange sleeve, and they too have Fusion written out instead of a logo this time.

The new jerseys are already proving to be a hit with fans on Twitter, but Philadelphia has some serious competition from the new Hangzhou Spark team for title of “Best Looking Jersey.”

The Spark’s jersey is pink, with baby blue highlights, so basically the other end of the spectrum from Philadelphia’s

Plenty of Overwatch League teams, especially the new expansion teams, use some combination of red and black, but the Fusion are definitely the best looking team in orange and black.

Overwatch players freak out at Baptiste’s huge new Amplification Matrix

Baptiste was the recipient of plenty of buffs in the latest Overwatch Experimental Card, including a major change to the size of his Amplification Matrix that is freaking out the game’s community.

The October 22 patch increased the width of the Haitian hero’s ultimate by a whopping four meters – up to nine from its previous five.

Now, Baptiste’s “window” as the community calls it, looks more like a garage door bigger than any shield in the game by a fair margin.

Keep in mind that the whole purpose of the Amplification Matrix is to double the damage or healing of any shot fired through it. Now, it’s extremely unlikely that teammates will ever have a reason to not shoot through the ultimate as it’s near impossible to miss.

The community has been joking about the size increase. On Reddit, LukarWarrior joked, “Baptiste, now available in IMAX,” suggesting that it’s not as big as a movie theater screen.

Others, such as educational content creator SVB noted how the ultimate is wider than the streets on King’s Row.

That said, it has plenty of uses on other maps where its entire width can be put to good use. BlazeBubble9 documented how there are so many chokes where the new window can come in handy.

Baptiste’s new Amp Matrix can come in handy on Numbani.

For instance, while defending or attacking first point on Numbani, the new ultimate can take up a whole spot on the high ground letting a whole team fire at will onto the objective doing double damage.

In another, you can see how trying to gain or prevent access to the bridge on Eichenwalde second is a breeze with the new ultimate as it perfectly fits within the choke.

Of course, because the change is on the Experimental Mode there’s a chance it doesn’t hit the live game, but in the past many of the buffs tested there end up going through, so players should prepare regardless.

Only time will tell if this ultimate buff changes how often players decide to pick the support in their matches.
