Overwatch Pro Embraces Tranquility, Miraculously Avoids Certain Doom

Other Zenyatta players might be stronger, faster and/or literally Seoul Dynasty’s Ryujehong, but this is, without a doubt, The One True Zenyatta.

As part of Blizzard’s Overwatch Contenders Trials series, a player from Thailand named Tae found himself smack in the middle of a veritable ult sandwich and decided to just go with it.

Instead of fleeing from what appeared to be certain doom in the form of ults from an enemy Pharah and Zenyatta, as well as a hailstorm of various other attacks, Xavier stood stock still atop the payload. Then, just to drive home the transcendent level of meditative calm he’d achieved while staring Death in the eyes so hard that he bored a hole in his worm-filled skull, he had his Zenyatta flash a peace sign.

Immediately after, he casually hopped off the payload and hurled a barrage of tiny wrecking balls at the other team’s D.Va and Zenyatta, picking up Play Of The Game in the process. He did this all like it was nothing, because really, what do esports even matter? In the face of the universe’s perfect harmony, what does anything matter?

Embrace tranquility, indeed.


  • If you take a closer look, the only ults being used are his Winston teammate’s PR (hence him not being knocked off the payload) and the enemy teams Transcendence. The missiles belong to the enemy D.VA

    • Aaaaah, it looked a little off on inspection, never played but I was curious if it was really as cool as it looked.

      It did look a little pretty cool though, and the stunned commentators were pretty funny.

      • No doubt! I love seeing plays like this where it’s kind of like the player was busy doing something else and then all of a sudden do enough in a short space of time for the Overwatch algorithm to do it’s thing lol
