An Overwatch player unintentionally flexes on his opponent after one of Tracer’s emotes forces him to dodge every shot being fired at him.
There are certain unwritten rules in the Supervision Community that have come from years of time with the game. One such rule concerns propriety in the pre-match Free-For-All minigame that players can opt into while waiting for a competitive match. Instead of staring at a random menu and menu Supervision hero facing the player, they can be placed on one of the Deathmatch maps where they can relax with friends.
Usually a Supervision The player who gets excited in the mode indicates that they are friendly, pacifist and do not want to participate in the mode to “warm up” the mechanics. Sometimes a player will, intentionally or unintentionally, harm or kill a peaceful player waiting for the actual match to start. Either all the other players turn around and catch the person who disturbed the peace, or ignore them. A hilarious interaction was posted on Reddit that served up a side of instant karma for the offender.
Reddit user needusername please posted this clip of them hanging out at Kanezaka’s cat cafe with Sombra and Mei. A chilling moment in one of supervision The cutest rooms are interrupted when a Hanzo player walks in just as the Tracer player starts an emote with their back to the door. Usually being stuck in an emote with an enemy player pressing is an instant kill. Somehow, in this player’s infinite foresight, they chose the “Warm Up” emote which has Tracer doing athletic leaps on the spot before launching into his signature blink.
The Hanzo player fires arrows at the noncombatant room and at the Tracer, but Tracer’s emote flickers at the perfect time and the Hanzo misses. They coil up and fire at the Tracer’s new position, but miss again. In an act of frustration, shame, and disgrace, the Hanzo player uses Storm Arrows to rely less on marksmanship and finish the kill against the elusive Tracer. The clip ends there, but fans can assume that Sombra and Mei in the room dished out some street punishment afterward.
The clip is funny mainly because Tracer has her back turned and is apparently unaware of the threat. But like an overpowered anime character, he dodges incoming attacks without acknowledging Hanzo’s presence. The use of Storm Arrows may have killed the Tracer, but it only amplified the fun of the interaction. It’s a desperate move to reassert dominance in a situation that could have been avoided if Hanzo had stuck to the rules of engagement in the game. Supervision Deathmatch queue.
