YouTuber dillongoo latest video hilariously reimagines Overwatch’s newest hero Ashe, and her Omnic sidekick B.O.B., as cats.

Posted on November 15, it’s the latest of dillongoo’s series that remakes Overwatch heroes into feline versions of themselves.

The Ashe cat comes equipped with a literal snake as her rifle, a play on the Viper name of Ashe’s real gun, a popping balloon instead of her Coach Gun, and hot chilis in place of dynamite, while the B.O.B. cat shoots chilis from his arm.

The video remakes all of Ashe’s highlight intros, then lampoons the showdown featured in the new “Reunion” animated short, complete with B.O.B. breaking a sweat.

At the end of the video, the Ashe cat calls out B.O.B. and in a scene familiar to many Ashe players, he misses and runs right off the edge of the map.

dillongoo has created a ton of awesome Overwatch animations before, like this awesome fight animation that’s every Widowmaker’s dream come true.

What’s even more impressive is how soon this video came out, as it’s only been two weeks since Ashe was officially revealed at BlizzCon.

Overwatch meets WarCraft with epic RTS custom game mode

Overwatch and RTS games like WarCraft and StarCraft might seem like complete opposites, but the two styles have been combined into a very promising-looking Workshop mode that lets you control multiple heroes as if they were individual units.

If we look at Blizzard games like one big family tree, then the StarCraft and Warcraft franchises could probably be considered something like Overwatch’s grandparents.

Back in the day StarCraft especially was one of the biggest esports on the planet, but the RTS genre has sadly fallen to wayside in recent years. Both still have dedicated communities though (even after the disaster that was Reforged) and it’s safe to say a good number also play Overwatch now as well.

Irish Overwatch manager Andygmb clearly hasn’t outgrown his love for real-time strategy, not that one ever does, decided to take the top down style from those games and apply it to all of our favorite heroes using Josbird’s cursor tool in the Workshop mode.

You can scroll around the map, and drag the map to select multiple units and control them all at once. Like an RTS game, you can tell them where to go, and when to attack something.

Right off the top of our heads if they ever were to make an Overwatch game like this, we’d wager that Roadhog rush would be a great opening build to start with.

But it doesn’t take much to imagine a League of Legends-style game as well being made playable with this type of game either. Sure, Blizzard already has Heroes of the Storm, but that only features a few Overwatch heroes to choose from, where this could add the whole roster.

Overwatch has over 30 different heroes that could make all kinds of different units.

With Heroes of the Storm already existing (and producing cooler skins for D.Va than Overwatch itself) our chances of seeing an official RTS featuring the game’s heroes are unfortunately slim to none.

That has never stopped players before though, so we’d keep our eyes out for some kind of League clone to appear before too long on the Custom Game browser. Until then, you can always waste more time playing Among Us there as well.
