Esports News – Aside from the League, gamers and die-hard fans must anticipate new and overflowing Overwatch updates every now and then. This week’s catch is Blizzard’s patch on its public test realm that features a new escort map, nerfs for the heroes, and general system fixes.
The new Overwatch update 2018 map to be added to the actual game is Rialto, there are no hints yet if it would also be added to Overwatch League but the fans have high hopes. Rialto is based in Italy and according to Blizzard, this is the actual description of the map:
“Rialto was home to Talon agent Antonio Bartalotti’s sprawling estate and the backdrop to the infamous “Venice Incident,” a turning point for Overwatch and Talon. The Italian government has taken great steps to preserve Venice, and the results are striking. Tourists visiting this picturesque town can sample the regional cuisine, enjoy a relaxing gondola ride, visit Galleria D’arte Omnica, or simply take in the sights with a stroll along the canal.”
The new changes will mostly affect the heroes Tracer and Brigitte. One good news for non-Tracer users is that her pulse bomb damage has been decreased from 400 to 300, players who get hit can still get away with low health. Blizzard considered the unfair advantage of Tracer when taking down big tanks—a pulse bomb can easily target an object with a size that big. For Brigitte, her Shield Bash cone angle has been reduced from 90 to 60 degrees after some players protested that their heroes still get hit even at a considerable amount of distance.
Genji – Deflect hitbox size had been reduced.
Hanzo – The Storm Bow’s projectile speed was increased from 85 to 100, but the Sonic Arrow’s undergone more changes: cooldown was decreased from 20 to 12 seconds, duration decreased from 10 to 6 seconds, and radius decreased from 10 to 7 meters. Players can now use a “Lunge” feature by pressing jump while in the air to leap horizontally. Most importantly, the Scatter Arrow is out, and the “Storm Arrows” are in. Hanzo can now fire a maximum of 6 arrows.
Junkrat – Frag Launcher’s projectile size was decreased from 0.3 to 0.2, and RIP-Tire’s movement speed decreased from 13 to 12.
Lucio – Wall rides are now less likely to be interrupted along a single surface. Players can now go around any order without having to leave the wall and land back on the same wall after leaping away if Lucio jumps far enough from the jumping off point. However, the movement speed bonus when leaping off walls was decreased from 2.5 to 2.0 meters per second to add a minimum time for players to hold the jump key before Lucio ride around the corners.

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.
