Overwatch League matches move fast, and one key aspect of clutch plays often stays off-screen and unacknowledged: the support players who heal up the pros pulling off those killstreaks. Most of those successful takedowns happen while the damage-dealing player is in the pocket - that is to say, getting healed continuously by a support player.


When Overwatch pro Jonathan "DreamKazper" Sanchez followed Anna* back on Twitter, she was in shock. A 16-year-old high school junior, Anna had only just purchased Overwatch for her Xbox One but was sold on the league of charismatic pros championing the blockbuster first-person shooter.

The first game she tuned in for was New York versus Boston, a scrappy but promising team that, she said, had a special energy. Like any fan, she went through the team's roster and followed her favourite players on Twitter. Sanchez was the only one who sent her a direct message thanking her.
