We were down five on six for most of this game, but we did hold back their first push, and this was part of why. Like ducks, all in a row, at the amusement park.
(We did not hold back their second push. We did, again, on second point, but not as well, and then lost, despite finally getting a sixth player.)
This isn't a very interesting highlight, and I'm a little sad about that, because it was a very interesting game.
I'd mined their initial spawn, as always, for the little early intel about who they had coming at us, yeh? And it tripped, like always, and one of the incoming was enemy Widowmaker, who I headshot as she chained up to the hotel balcony that you can see in the preview before she even landed.
She was mad. And, as it turned out, good. And the first kill was so hilarious that it took me a couple of goes to figure that out, and the entire game came down to which of us could keep the other one of us down. When she had me down, she'd kill half our team, and they'd advance the payload. When I had her down, I did the reverse, and we backed them up.
And that was the entire game. When, in the end, I came out ahead against her, we won. Simple as that.
All the play I'm getting in with Moira thanks to ending up on Aussie servers so much lately (because I'm playing with Aussies) means I think I'm starting to get the hang of her, a bit. I don't enjoy playing her as much as I enjoy Widowmaker or Pharah or Tracer, but I can certanly be effective.
I'm going to end up adding a Moira icon, aren't I? ffffff
as always, click through for sound
This was not play of the game. I thought it would be, but it wasn't. Play of the game was three kills, not four, but... wow, deserved it.
See the player I kill first in this clip? She got POTG. Note how I took her out of the air. Her play of the game was three headshots, like these, but all while she was airborne, made in rapid sequence.
Such artistry. Utterly beautiful.
That Zarya's cowardice cost them their last shot at this game.
I'd been playing a lot of different heroes last night and losing a lot of games while statting really well, and finally I just said fukkit, I'm a Widowmaker one trick, and stopped golding, and started winning. I'll take it.
On a pretty weak team, and we were completely (and quickly) overrun on point A. They were about to do the same on point B immediately after capture - their plan was a clear hard push through - but I wasn't having any of that.
(After this, we held up for a few minutes. Still lost, but made it more respectable.)
