New player here. What if both teams decided to go with this strategy? How would that work?

It then comes down to who has better Discord shotcalling, and ultimate management among other things.

GOATS is a problem. That finally got solved.

Why do you make the footage so small? Great editing and video in general though!

That wire border is really annoying

Your border on this series makes it painful to watch on mobile

Thank you for the feedback. We will take this into consideration for future videos to ensure a better viewing experience for you guys.

My favorite setup is rein zarya Brigitta mercy DPs doesn't matter if the first 4 is good (Brigitta is my fighting buddy, I bubble her, she shield me) and mercy is a great healer and can rez, rein for the protection, cc, high burst
B Bull (5 months ago)
New strat 6 torbs

Burst, not bursted. Bursted is not a word. Love the videos.

4:23 As a Reinhardt main, that is the most dumbest shit I have ever seen.
Casey Walsh (6 months ago)
Actually, classic deathball always included Rein, Lucio, AND Soldier as Soldier was the strongest DPS in the game at the time of deathball's rise to META. Pharah wasn't a strong counter because of Soldier being so strong and Pharah having weak mobility when she moved in the air as her buff wasn't patched in to give her faster movement in the air, also even before that McCree was basically a sniper and could deal with her even more effectively. Usually, in a textbook deathball you would run Rein, Lucio, Soldier, and Zarya as the must-picks, then Ana would become must-pick for DB after her release and buff, the 6th pick was always the flex pick being either a 3rd tank or a flexing DPS to counter whatever they would try to run (Usually Genji by default) and the team fights would always focus on wearing down the Rein's shield so you could start dishing out the real damage, otherwise focusing on getting your Zarya's grav before the other team did and get a team-kill and winning the fight quickly after. The META shifted into dive because of the Soldier and Ana nerfs in Season 4 and effectively removed 2 of the 5 must-pick deathball heroes from the META, killing off deathball.

Why the picture in picture in picture framed thingy
Ya boi Victor (6 months ago)
Rein is one of the most importat tanks, and his ultimate is game changing.
Ya boi Victor (6 months ago)
Im a Reinhardt main, you can bet i love it.
David Workman (6 months ago)
Loved the star wars reference
ShiningLeopard27 (6 months ago)
Your voice so so boring mate, good video otherwise
Grenix (6 months ago)
The best way to mitigate that verticality weakness is to run a Symmetra combined with Lucio's speed boost, will allow your team to get anywhere quickly, regardless of hero choice
Cum Whore (4 months ago)
Grenix no sym is a trash hero
Edward Dickson (6 months ago)
Who thought of dragon ball because of Freiza
bersi raw (6 months ago)
The amount of white space is giving me a headache. Why limit yourself to such a small gameplay window?

Yeah bish Lucio mains. <3
Disappointment (6 months ago)
ive played games with this strategy for a while including overwatch and ive always heard it being called 'grouping'. great video though! keep it up
Jerome Anthony R Santos (6 months ago)
I call deathball Blitzkrieg for some reason
love singh (6 months ago)
A suggestion for future videos in the series, please use full screen videos for the next one. It was very painful to watch on a smartphone. Otherwise gj.
Jason Baterna (6 months ago)
I thought death ball was attaching Symettra turrets on a basketball.
madhatten00 (1 month ago)
Put rein on payload. Put turrets on payload. Everyone group tf together and stand on payload. "Deathball".
Ludvig Olofsson 7B (3 months ago)
well youre not wrong..... i guess
Jaden Kirby (4 months ago)
Gia Princess it doesn’t work like that. The sentry turrets on the ball will be destroyed when they hit the ground.
Gia Princess (4 months ago)
Jaden Kirby she can just punch it
Jaden Kirby (4 months ago)
Jason Baterna Yeah it was. But now we can’t do that since Symmetra can’t bring the basketball with her because her primary fire is different now.

i miss the beyblade meta
Manuel Brod (6 months ago)
Bro deathball by far wasnt the longest lasting meta by far, we had dive for 2 years almost
Basil Schmid (6 months ago)
Nice vid bro👌
That One Pickle (6 months ago)
I always thought Deathball referred to a team centered around Graviton, where once a successful grav was pulled off the team could capitalize more than normal off of the ult.

Dante2831 (6 months ago)
I remember doing something like this but I didn’t know what it was called. It was at the time when Ana got nerfed with her nano boost. The one where is removed the movement speed. I told our Lucio to speed boost me as I was rein and Ana to nano boost me. We won the game.

Heh, my six stack of friends can always destroy death all because my zen always kills the Moira the first 30 seconds or the Lucio because of my aim

The most underrated strategy in Dive-bias Community of Overwatch.
chris gouw (6 months ago)
Brilliant production quality, the use of memes was brilliant in the way it was amusing, but relevant to the point you were trying to explain. And the explanations were simple and easy to understand if you are pretty experienced in this game but just lack the game sense knowledge to run a strat like deathball. Great job!
Akshon Esports (6 months ago)
Thanks for the kind words!
2EZ4_Guardian (6 months ago)
Ouch I miss Beyblade meta. Reaper, Zarya, Lucio, Ana, Dva, and a misc. DPS was the best thing to grace this game since "I need healing".
Avona Starsurge (6 months ago)
The second reason pharah counters deathball is because of her AoE damage...
Neil Wiggs (6 months ago)
D.Va counters pharas ult. Healers are strong (brigette+lucio+moira= more than a direct hit rocket healed per second). Add the D.Va, Rein and the Zarya and what exactly is a pharas going to do without an equally impressive dps and tank with her?
The Grizz Bear (6 months ago)
Age of Empires damage?
Kaheim (6 months ago)
Kawaii sung no it’s not, it’s because of her verticality.
Kawaii sung (6 months ago)
Avona Starsurge it isn’t that bad. A good pharah can easily carry to masters.
