Blizzard Developer Provides Tactics, Counters For Overwatch’s Wrecking Ball

Published

on

Blizzard’s lead designer Geoff Goodman is breaking down how to use the newest character, Wrecking Ball, offering both tactics and counters to help players along the way when using the newest hero.

Best Tactics:

“Occasionally, you have enemy compositions that are comprised of something like Orisa, some snipers, maybe Bastion, and they’re really tightly packed together behind Orisa or Reinhardt’s shield,” Geoff Goodman explains. “In those cases, Wrecking Ball should be really good.”

Counters:

“Anything that disrupts movement at all, even just briefly, can really mess him up,” Goodman says. “He doesn’t blink away or teleport away – even though he’s fast, he has to build up that speed. When he goes in and smashes into everyone or does a Piledriver, he has to start from zero again. That extra bit of time to get away or re-position can really be abused.

“Even if you hit him with a McCree flashbang, he has to restart that momentum. He’s a giant, round character. Those characters in our game, as Zenyatta players will tell you, they tend to get hit with every bullet. So any time you’re not able to move around it gets really bad for him.”

Team Composition, Dive:

“Three tanks who can dive in and jump on the enemy team, Winston, D.Va, Wrecking Ball might be a thing,” Goodman says. “We may have some new, weird dive thing happening with him but we’ll have to see. We love dive – it’s super fun to watch, super fun to play, I think it has some interesting counters. One thing that’s cool with Wrecking Ball is that maybe we can broaden the concept of dive even more.”

Worm Game

Google has launched one final game for the Stadia console as a “goodbye” ahead of it’s official shutdown this year.

The game is “Worm Game” which Google says was “a humble title we used to test many of Stadia’s features, starting well before our 2019 public launch, right through 2022” and adding “It won’t win Game of the Year, but the Stadia team spent a LOT of time playing it, and we thought we’d share it with you. Thanks for playing, and for everything.”

The game is quite simple as players will be tasked with controlling a worm as it tried to eat fruit that appears on screen. As the fruit is eaten, the worm gets bigger, which is a lot like the retro game ‘Snake’, but with a lot more to it.

Enjoy.
