Seagull suffers through a hilariously NSFW moment while playing D.Va in Overwatch

Overwatch has seen its fair share of off-the-wall clips but it seems like former Overwatch League pro Brandon ‘Seagull’ Larned has found one that might top them all.

Overwatch is preparing to go into its third year since being released in 2016, but strange moments seem to happen all the time and this time its one that might make people turn down their speaker’s volumes when hearing.

While trying to keep the Overtime alive on the third section of Dorado, Brandon ‘Seagull’ Larned had de-meched as D.Va with a hail of attacks all around him, leading to his ultimate demise.

BlizzardSeagull is an expert on all things Tanks, but this glitch was even able to catch him unawares.

The game was lost, and what would have been a frustrating end to a competitive game turned to a mystifying moment filled very explicit sounds seemingly coming from the Korean mech pilot.

“What the fuck D.Va?! Hello? Hello?!?!” a bewildered Seagull said.

Upon his final death and leading into the post-game team victory pose, something that sounded like D.Va’s sound bytes could be heard on repeat, making things take an incredibly NSFW turn.

The sound that’s heard wasn’t actually D.Va at all but was actually sound coming from the mic of someone on Seagull’s team, but it nonetheless made for an extremely suggestive moment.

Seagull’s Twitch Chat were going wild as the unexpected sounds blared through the stream with no way of stopping them.

The moment caught both the streamer and his viewers completely off-guard, as the unexpected blunder was equally bizarre and unique to the stream.

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.

Pushing into Eichenwalde just got a bit easier.

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.
