Server Steals Overwatch Player Highlight, 500,000 People See It Anyway
A player has actually earned a Play of the Game in Overwatch through skillful use of an Ultimate. But that was spoiled by a crash. Nevertheless, the highlight has now seen half a million fans.
This highlight is all about: The player and Reddit user GabiDraco has in one round on Numbani as D.Va sincerely. There he used his Ultimate Self-Destruction skillfully. As a defender, he attacked the opposing team as it was about to move to the point. For protection, the opponents have gathered behind Orisa’s shield.
This shield broke GabiDraco with the help of its booster and ignited the self-destruction behind it. The short recoil could hardly escape an opponent. But just as the bomb exploded, GabiDraco is thrown back into the main menu by a server error.

For the scene, he receives from the community both praise and pity.
Dozens of Reddit users just commented on “F,” a meme from Call of Duty. There, players could press the F key to “Respect” at a funeral (“Press F to Pay Respects”).
