San Francisco Shock head coach Park ‘Crusty’ Da-hee has revealed why he left the Boston Uprising.

During the most recent episode of OverSight, an Overwatch talk show hosted by Duncan ‘Thorin’ Shields and Overwatch League commentator Christopher ‘MonteCristo’ Mykles, Crusty discussed his reasoning for changing teams mid-season.

Crusty departed the Boston Uprising at the end of Stage 3, during which the Uprising had put together their most successful stage of the season so far. The team went undefeated in the regular season games, and came second to the New York Excelsior in the stage playoffs.

Despite experiencing so much success with Boston, Crusty chose to move to the San Francisco Shock for the final stage of the season. The Shock had so far been a much weaker team, and had no realistic chance of reaching the end-of-season playoffs, while Boston were almost guaranteed to advance.

In Stage 4, the Shock have been in perhaps their most impressive form yet, with the team’s young stars forming an increasingly cohesive unit. Meanwhile, the Uprising experienced a total collapse at the start of the stage, losing six consecutive series before putting a win on the board.

The disparity in both teams’ performances with and without Crusty has made him one of the most prominent coaches in the league. During the most recent OverSight, he explained what drove the decision to change teams.

Though Crusty held the “head coach” title at Boston Uprising, he apparently felt that he didn’t have the full extent of control in that position that he wanted, while the San Francisco Shock were willing to grant him the power to execute his vision.

The full episode of OverSight, in which Crusty also discusses many other aspects of the Overwatch League and the teams within it, can be seen below.


How to use OP Torb turret placement in Overwatch Junkenstein’s Revenge

Junkenstein’s Revenge is one of the best ways to earn loot boxes during Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event, and there are a few spots for Torbjorn’s turret you should probably know about.

Halloween in Overwatch means plenty of new skins to unlock, including the Ragdoll Echo skin, which is now available until the event ends on November 3.

The only way to unlock the DPS hero’s new skin though is to win 9 games in any mode. If you stick to quick play and competitive this could easily take one or even two whole days, but if you simply grind them out in Junkenstein’s Revenge, the wins will only take a couple of hours instead.

Even though the seasonal PvE survival mode goes quicker than regular matches, you can definitely still lose if you don’t have the right team comp. This means that at all difficulty levels, Torbjorn is still a must-pick for his turret and it’s constant damage output.

You won’t get far in the harder difficulties of Junkenstein’s without Torb.

As for where to put this powerful, Zomnic-slaying device, there are several options that all work quite well, and are all fairly easy to pull off too – like on top of the overturned cart right down the middle lane. It has a commanding line of sight for the middle and left staircase spawns, and even covers part of the pond on the right side.

The best part of this spot might be the fact that it’s too close for Zombardiers to immediately target it, and it will hold boss aggro for as long as it’s around.

Next, placing the turret on the railing right on top of the left-hand stairs also gives it a great shot at all three spawns instead of just two, and gives you the ability to run up there and repair it when needed.

Finally, if you’re looking for something extra flashy to really impress your teammates, there’s even a way to get the turret up to the wooden platform just above the door where Widow and Ashe usually hang out.

Like in the clip above, head up the stairs to the right and go on to the platform they lead to (the place we all used to place the turret). Then head to the ledge closest to the door and aim at the ridge on the tower above the platform, straight up from the bush on the right side.

Another option is to jump from the edge and throw it at the apex of Torb’s leap if you have trouble getting it there while standing still. Toss it up, and your little guy is all set to rain down death on the army of undead charging the gates, and hopefully unlock that Echo skin a little bit quicker.
