The Overwatch League Grand Finals are taking place in a sold out NBA arena and being broadcast on ESPN, but some out there are still questioning the legitimacy of esports.

Instead of letting the doubters go uncontested, the official Overwatch League Twitter account decided to hand out devastating burns.


First up was an unfortunate user, who happens to be an imitation account of a famous NBA reporter, that posted a poll asking if Overwatch is a sport.

An overwhelming 90% of respondents replied that Overwatch was a sport and the OWL Twitter account made sure to rub it in.


A desperate attempt to save face by the pollster was also shot down with another gif.

Next up was someone who did not bother with a poll and instead went straight to claiming that Overwatch was not a sport.

The not a sport tweet got “ratioed,” with 26 replies on only 6 likes. The OWL’s response received over 1,000 likes.


Finally, it would not be a Twitter argument without the appearance of a Spongebob meme.

Day Two of the Overwatch League Grand Finals takes place on July 28 at 4:00 PM EST. The London Spitfire hold a 1-0 advantage in the best of three match.


Insane Overwatch Wrecking Ball Tracer combo obliterates enemy teams

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.
