Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel took a shot at one of his Overwatch World Cup rivals during a recent stream.

xQc had some choice words about Austin ‘Muma’ Wilmot in response to former Outlaws player Lucas ‘Mendokusaii’ Håkansson hyping up Muma in anticipation of his upcoming performance at the Overwatch World Cup.

Both xQc and Muma will be headed to BlizzCon for the World Cup playoffs, taking place on November 2-3.

The rivalry between xQc and Muma goes way back to even before the pair joined the Overwatch League. In the league itself not only were they battling as two of the best western main tank players, but also doing so from rival Texas teams Dallas Fuel and Houston Outlaws.

During Season One of the Overwatch League, xQc’s first suspension also came as a result of comments directed at Muma. Muma himself has since said that the two have no ongoing personal issues, but with xQc stepping back into competition for the Overwatch League it seems the competitive rivalry between them remains strong.

Though xQc no longer competes full-time, the two recently clashed again at the Los Angeles Qualifier for the Overwatch World Cup, xQc representing Canada while Muma competed for Team USA.

Though both teams qualified for the playoffs, it was the USA that came out on top with a win in the head-to-head.

The two could yet meet again in the playoffs, but in order for that to happen both teams would need to reach the final. Canada will kick off their campaign against France, while USA will face the United Kingdom in their quarter-final match.

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.
