xQc Gets Denied By Incredible Play from Enemy Winston in Ranked Overwatch

Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel found himself on the receiving end of an epic Winston play while streaming ranked matches.

Formerly a main tank for Dallas Fuel and the current main tank for the Team Canada Overwatch World Cup squad, xQc is widely regarded as one of the best western players in his role.

During a recent stream, however, he had the tables turned on him when an opponent pulled off an incredibly smart and well-executed Winston play to deny xQc and secure the round on Lijiang Tower.

xQc himself was flexing as D.Va, and as his team set up for what would be their final attempt at securing the point he saw an opening, sending his MEKA flying in to self-destruct, confident in securing multiple kills.

Just as the explosion was about to go off, however, the enemy Winston leapt into the air to intercept, placing a bubble around it and saving his team. xQc could do nothing but give credit where it was due.

That wasn’t the end, however, as the enemy Winston was about to add insult to injury. xQc proceeded to dive in on the enemy Mercy, looking to isolate them near the edge of the map, but the enemy Winston again saw an opportunity, activating his ultimate and batting xQc, now without his boosters to save him, off of the map.

xQc, typically fast-talking and quick to express frustration when things aren’t going his way, was left speechless, simply acknowledging “that was crazy.”

During the spookiest time of the year, Overwatch’s fans have discovered a cute, quaint easter egg in the game’s Chateau Guillard map, which has enjoyed a Halloween makeover.

Overwatch’s developers over at Blizzard do not take October’s biggest holiday for granted, as they celebrate the costume and candy festivities each year with reworked maps and new cosmetics.

This year, players have taken to exploring the Halloween version of Chateau Guillard, and are appreciating the various adjustments.

Now set under moonlight, the extensive French chateau most popularly known for deathmatch custom games is also becoming known for spooky Halloween details. Having released in 2018’s event, players are still making discoveries in the version of Chateau Guillard at night.

Normally, people get distracted by the fog and darkness, or maybe the jack-o’-lanterns and subterranean coffin.

But, taking a trip to the red study room, Redditor ‘YHJ_JYG_Kryptlock’ has discovered a neat little Overwatch easter egg involving candle wicks.

The new Halloween easter egg appears in Chateau Guillard’s red study room.

As they demonstrate in the clip below, if you shoot each wick of the candelabra, the candles will briefly light. It’s nothing crazy, but that doesn’t stop it from being a neat addition to an already detailed revamped map.

To find this easter egg, you’ll first need to find the red study room.

If you’re facing inward to the chateau from the outdoor area with a jump pad and statue, this room will be toward the back right as you enter. If you’re on the opposite end, at the balcony’s health pack, this will be to your left as you enter the chateau.

Ultimately, it’s a very simple easter egg, but a cute one. In a map covered in so much dreary darkness thanks to Halloween, lighting candles is a nice contrast.

Of course, it also makes for a decent party trick. So if you load into custom games, feel free to impress your friends by showing off your detailed map knowledge.
