Doomfist Dominates With A Serious Beat-Down In His First Pro Overwatch Match

Doomfist, the latest Overwatch character, has made a smashing debut. One professional Overwatch player tested Doomfist out at an exhibition match and wowed the crowd with four quick eliminations. 

Overwatch player Kim “Libero” Hye Sung of the professional South Korean team “Meta Athena”, recently played Doomfist in a match against “Ardeont”. Libero was quickly able to take out his opponents’ Winston, Genji, Tracer, and Zenyatta with Doomfist’s skills like “Rocket Punch” and “Meteor Strike”. Libero’s savvy use of Doomfist will hopefully encourage other professionals to experiment with the champion. Sombra and Orisa’s professional debuts ended poorly despite the hype prior to their release.

Doomfist is Overwatch’s latest character and the first proper villain. He is an offensive character with a difficulty rating of three stars. His mechanical arm means that his abilities mostly revolve around punching opponents and slamming them into the ground. His “hand cannon” ability allows him to fire a short-range burst of ammunition from his knuckle, while his “meteor strike” helps him to jump into the sky and deal damage while crashing to the ground. His other abilities include “Seismic Slam”, “Rising Uppercut”, “Rocket Punch”, and “The Best Defense…”

The popularity of Overwatch only seems to be increasing. Blizzard Entertainment announced a two year contract with Twitch this past June. There will be over 20 major individual events live-streamed through Twitch including both the Overwatch Apex League and Premier Series. New and current Twitch Prime members will receive a Golden Loot Box for Overwatch that is guaranteed to contain a legendary item for one of the game's heroes and three additional in-game items until August 10th. Blizzard also plans to release 10 Overwatch loot boxes over the next year.
