The Overwatch League 2021 season officially starts this weekend, April 16-18. To help fans get hyped for the league’s big return, a range of brand-new Overwatch League apparel has been released through Mitchell & Ness. The line allows fans to show their support in style including “Play by Play” tees and two-tone snapback hats for Overwatch League teams.
Overwatch League™ introduced two new legendary skins: Midas Roadhog which celebrates the 2020 San Francisco Shock championship, and the Good vs Evil Echo which is a nod to the 2020 Overwatch League MVP, Byung-Sun “Fleta” Kim. Both skins are available now through April 6. Get them while you can!
But these Legendary skins cost Overwatch League Points. How do I get them?
Blizzard Entertainment’s Blizzard Legends will publish Overwatch: Deadlock Rebels on June 1, 2021. The novel introduces the founding of the Deadblock Rebels and features McCree, Ashe and B.O.B.
Overwatch has had many flaws over the years as new heroes have been added. Some of the flaws have resulted in major hero overhauls.
Symmetra has had at least two major overhauls to her abilities kit. Mercy at some point had a couple overhauls as well. Several bug fixes to many heroes, and slight changes as well.
Some heroes are considered broken. Just search for some content creator videos out there to learn more about them.
But there is one major thing in Overwatch that needs to be fixed in Overwatch 2, if not before it.
The Kanezaka Challenge started today, rewarding a Hanzo skin to those who participate in the event; and 7 new Sprays themed around Kanezaka.
Blizzard Entertainment deployed a new FFA Deathmatch map based near the Hanamura map. Kanezaka provides plenty of sniper and high ground spots to dispose of enemies from afar; and corridors.
There is a strong fox and cat theme going on throughout the map. I wouldn’t be surprised if a new female hero is hinted here.
Below is a spectator-mode solo exploration video, and screenshots.
Blizzard Entertainment deployed Overwatch Patch 1.53 introducing the Halloween Terror 2020 event; profanity filter updates; Elevator adjustment in Volskaya and Hollywood; competitive updates for Reinhardt; Soldier: 76, Sombra, Widowmaker and Wrecking Ball; and several bug fixes.

Junkrat has been buffed a bit by reducing the delay when you trigger a concussion mine — meaning he can explode them faster, and you can control Junk faster after detonating the RIP-Tire. The patch also adds several bug fixes across the board.
Zarya is trending on Twitter after Blizzard Entertainment unveiled and set immediately for purchase the new Zarya Alien Legendary Skin in celebration of the 2019 Overwatch League MVP Sinatraa.
