Overwatch streamer Brandon ‘Seagull’ Larned kicked off the Nano Cola Challenge with an enormously successful stream.

In celebration of the new D.Va animated short and Busan map, the Nano Cola Challenge offers players the chance to unlock D.Va-themed cosmetics until September 10.

Part of the Nano Cola Challenge requires players to tune into partnered Overwatch streams to earn some of the D.Va sprays, with up to eight hours of total viewing to unlock all of them. Seagull kicked off the challenge as the first partnered streamer on August 28.

Seagull might be Overwatch’s most popular streamer, but this broadcast was exceptionally popular even for him. The stream peaked at more than 100,000 viewers, and by the end Seagull had garnered more than 7000 new subscribers and around 60,000 new followers.

Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan even made a cameo, first to demand that the stream hit 100,000 viewers and later to congratulate Seagull on achieving it.

Seagull recently announced his retirement from professional Overwatch, having competed for Dallas Fuel in Season One of the Overwatch League. He cited the stress of competing in the league and a desire not to neglect his significant fan-base as major motivators for the decision, and so far it seems to be working out well for him.

Overwatch players looking to find some new synergy between two unlikely heroes should look no further than a lethal combination with Tracer and Wrecking Ball.

Wrecking Ball can be one of the most annoying heroes in the game to deal with, constantly booping people away while remaining in his ball form.

Meanwhile, Tracer can do very much of the same, buzzing in the backline, harassing supports and just being a general menace to deal with thanks to her Blinks, Recall and small hit box.

Together, the threat of Tracer and Wrecking Ball can really dominate uncoordinated teams, but with a little coordination on their own part, the two can destroy entire groups with a neat ultimate attack.

Wrecking Ball can be a major threat in the back line.

As demonstrated by Twitch streamer ‘rene_ow,’ the Masters ranked Hammond player spotted a pack of enemies all grouped up on the Busan map.

After grappling to go in for a major boop on the four, the player’s allied Tracer blinked in and stuck her Pulse Bomb on the McCree.

With the McCree booped into the rest of the adversaries, the result ended up being a massive quad kill, with both supports and DPS heroes on the enemy team eliminated swiftly.

The insane combo was well-received by the team, which celebrated the quad kill. “That was nuts!” they cried with glee.

Perhaps the best part of this combo is that you don’t need the stick to connect. In theory, you can have Wrecking Ball knock the enemies towards Tracer or her Pulse Bomb radius to secure the frags.

This type of team play may take some serious effort to get right, but if you have a partner you synergize well with, it’s always possible that this combination can help you win Overwatch games, and rank up in style.
