Former Dallas Fuel player Brandon ‘Seagull’ Larned has revealed that he probably won’t be competing at Overwatch All-Stars.

Seagull recently announced that he would be retiring from professional Overwatch, returning instead to streaming full-time.

Though he won’t be competing for Dallas Fuel in Season Two, Seagull was still expected to appear on stage one last time, as a starting player for the Pacific Division team for All-Stars.

All-Stars, which will take place on August 25-26, will see teams of the most skilled and popular players of the Atlantic and Pacific Divisions go head-to-head. As one of the most popular streamers in Overwatch, it’s little surprise that Seagull won a spot on the fan-voted starting six for his Division.

Unfortunately, it appears that Seagull may already have played his last professional game. During a recent stream, he revealed that he likely will not be competing at the event, for reasons unconnected to his retirement.

Seagull isn’t the first player to pull out of All-Stars, with London Spitfire’s Kim ‘Birdring’ Ji-hyeok missing the event due to injury. Birdring will be replaced by team-mate and grand finals MVP Park ‘Profit’ Joon-yeong.

No replacement has yet been announced for Seagull, though neither has official confirmation of his absence from the event.


Overwatch cosplayer sprints into battle as Soldier 76 with female twist

Cosplayers are no strangers to creating unique outfits based on Overwatch heroes and Hendoart proved to be no different with her stunning female take on Soldier 76.

Soldier 76 is one of the original classic Overwatch heroes, having been around since the game’s launch. With his iconic red, white, and blue jacket, mask, plus heavy pulse rifle, Jack Morrison can easily stand out in a crowd.

That all said, cosplayer and streamer Sarah ‘Hendoart’ Hendo decided to tackle the DPS hero from her own perspective, in what she called a “mini gender bend.”

As you can see from the photos, Hendo absolutely nailed the look of Soldier 76 getting the jacket, gloves, gun, and even biotic field down pat.

Meanwhile, she also added some of her own flair. Thanks to her feminine figure, the outfit manages to take on a life of its own, especially with her flowing brown hair behind 76’s mask.

However, the best part comes in the form of a little video she created with a fellow Mercy cosplayer. In the clip, the battle-scarred Hendo begs for healing and even “spams” for it – a bit of a meme in the Overwatch community.

“Just a battle-damaged Soldier and a Mercy who dgaf about me,” she captioned the video.

Eventually, the Mercy begins to nurse Hendo back to health and starts wrapping her arm in a bandage, and evaluates the rest of the hero’s injuries.

Hendo’s cosplays aren’t limited to just Overwatch either. She has cosplayed as many different DC and Marvel superheroes including Spider-Man, Harley Quinn, Joker, Mary Jane, and Venom just to name a few.

Soldier 76 isn’t the only Overwatch cosplay she’s done either. In the past, she has done many different takes on the tank hero D.Va including her School Girl and Tangerine themed skins.

With Overwatch 2 on the way and multiple more heroes coming with the sequel, this likely isn’t the last we’ve seen from Hendoart and quite frankly, we can’t wait to see what else she has in store.
