The OWLs Nest is CheckpointXP’s official podcast dedicated to the Overwatch League. Every episode Robbie Landis is joined by Jake Lyon to discuss the latest league moves, matches, and more. This episode Robbie and Jake discuss the prevalence of the Widowmaker and Tracer Meta in the Asian Pacific division for the Overwatch League. What makes this duo of damage dealers so effective and who does it the best?

Snipers and Flanks Dominate

Widowmaker and Tracer have always been high impact heroes with a very high skill ceiling. Some of the best players and the most memorable plays have been executed by players who excel on these two. Why are some Asian teams using these more than the North American teams? Jake explains what makes the sniper and flanking heroes so deadly and necessary in the current meta. Plus, which teams are benefiting the most? Jake talks about the Guangzhou Charge have stepped up their play with a Widowmaker and Tracer reliant composition. He explains how the DPS trio of Ou “Eileen” Yiliang, Jung-woo “Happy” Lee and Charlie “Nero” Zwarg give the Charge the edge they need over the other teams utilizing the same composition.

Will the Widowmaker and Tracer meta stay as relevant for these teams now that the hero pools are gone? Jake doesn’t think so. Anything can happen in the Overwatch League, but with Brigette and D.va back in the rotation, this provides a bit more protection for teams against these two heroes and offers more danger for those playing the sniper and flanker.
