Overwatch Weekly Brawl 22/06/16: Overly Defensive


It's time for the new Overwatch Weekly Brawl, which aims to prove that the best defense really isn't offense, it's actually defense. Probably. You're going to find out if it is, either way. 

For more competitive fun, check out our list of PC's best multiplayer games.

Overwatch's latest Weekly Brawl, Overly Defensive, only lets players choose a defensive hero. 

So your only options are to play as Bastion, Hanzo, Junrat, Mei, Torbjorn or Widowmaker. And to make sure the games aren't just filled with Bastions, there's only two of each hero allowed per team. 

I can't help but feel countering Bastion will be even more of a pain in the arse than normal in this mode, but it's all a bit of fun isn't it? 

Back when Weekly Brawls joined the beta, dataminers dug up some possible Weekly Brawls, and this one showed up on that list, so it looks like we'll be seeing the others.

Check out that link there if you're interested in seeing what might be coming.

Let us know if you try this week's and tell us how you get on in the comments.

Mei is a very good counter for Bastion.

Is it just me, or are many of these Brawls not very fun? I mean, at least compared to Hearthstone, where Blizzard comes up with some pretty great ideas. These hero restriction ones just devolve into one hero that counters the rest - Super Shimada Bros. turned into everybody picking Genji and this one, while a little bit better, feels like the win goes to the team with the strongest Widowmaker.

I guess I just wish more was done to mechanics and maybe even the maps for these weekly brawls.

I could not agree more. The weekly brawls are not fun, apart from random hero which was fun for awhile. Everything else has been like a fever dream of awful.
