Esports News – Overwatch, a team-based multiplayer first-person shooter video game, has skyrocketed in revenue and popularity over the years since its official release in 2016. Owing to the fact that it’s a breath of fresh air in today’s esports trends, calling it popular might be an understatement. The game lets people see a new dimension of characters, graphics, and maps. But just how adaptive Overwatch is when it comes to meeting the gamers’ craze and expectations?
Blizzard Entertainment has recently released the new updates for Overwatch Mission Archives, and the next big spring event you need to mark in your calendar schedule is Retribution, a limited-time event featuring the dark past of the game’s most ruthless heroes or the era before the fall of Overwatch. The overall theme of the game takes the players to Venice, Italy where they can command the agents of Blackwatch and battle against the terrorist organization Talon. One can choose to play Moira, Genji, McCree, or Reaper; and leap through the streets of Rialto, a new map exclusive for the event. Players also get another chance to dive back into the omnic insurrection as last year’s Uprising mission returns for another adventure.
Retribution went live last April 10th and will be available until April 30th. The update is available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The size of the update is pretty big: 18GB for PC and over 20 GB for other console versions. Nevertheless, the new skins, a new map, archives loot boxes, dual game modes (Retribution and Uprising), and data layout improvement are surely worth it all.
New skins for Doomfist, Hanzo, and Sombra are waiting for the gamers. Fans of the three will surely enjoy the game more as picking a player’s outfit is one of the most enjoyable and satisfying things in any video game. Take note that the three heroes in the actual Retribution game mode don’t have skins updates.
The skins are titled “Talon Sombra,” and “Talon Doomfist,” and “Scion Hanzo”. For Sombra, the outfit shows off a black, white, and red color palette. Her hair will stay short as usual. Doomfist will also have the same shades as Sombra, but the most prominent feature is the red paint on his face. Balanced against the two, the lone wolf Hanzo finally pulled off his classy side with a suit and tie in black and blue.

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
