    导出博客文章In Overwatchs brief history, one team has been the clear dominant player in the
    competitive scene. For anyone familiar with high-level play in Blizzards shiny
    new first-person shooter, the name of Team EnVyUs earned a reputation for
    near-invincibility, racking up win after win as spring turned to summer. EnVyUss
    57-match winning streak made winning look easy, but what fun is a streak if
    nobody ever breaks it? And thats just what happened last week.Entering their
    semifinal match at ESLs Overwatch Atlantic Showdown, EnVyUs was slated the
    favorite, as usual. Initially forming during Overwatchs closed beta, a group of
    friends created a team then known as IDDQD, named after a cheat code from the
    original Doom (sadly, one Im old enough to remember first-hand). Competing in
    weekly cups against more established esports organizations, IDDQD were the kings
    of the Overwatch beta and most of that team eventually became part of the new
    EnVy Overwatch team after an April acquisition. And after June, they never
    stopped winning.Enter Team Rogue. The Atlantic Showdowns $100,000 pot is the
    largest yet for an Overwatch tournament, though soon-to-be eclipsed by the
    Overwatch Opens $300,000 prize pool. With well-established teams at the top and
    a fairly static map pool in competition, Rogue adopted a strategy of training
    hard on less popular maps in order to leverage their natural aggressive style
    and create imbalanced matchups by throwing the competition a curve. And what a
    curve it was.The biggest curve, I believe that we couldve done and did was
    throwing the unusual maps towards them, said Kevyn TviQ Lindstr?m to
    With their limited practice time leading up to the event, we felt like Assault
    would be our best shot towards winning as we felt pretty comfortable on it. The
    payloads in general were really close and couldve gone either way, but we felt
    like we had the upper hand when we went into the Assault maps.And thats just
    what happened last week. EnVyUs was just as dangerous as always, but Rogue took
    their aggressive playstyle right at EnVyUs, winning the first game in the
    little-played Anubis map, thanks in a large part to the Reinhardt play of
    Jonathan Reinforce Larsson. Jokingly called Rhine-force, to his occasional
    chagrin, Reinforces typical take-no-prisoners style of play along with TviQs
    unconventional choice of using Junkrat for the entire round, gave them the big
    defensive stand needed to take Anubis over EnVyUss more standard lineup.In the
    end, the match against EnVyUs came down to a showdown in Lijiang, the rubber
    match taken by Rogue in large part due to the usual heroics from TviQ and and
    Dylan aKm Bignet. In a game in which the casters attention tend to focus on the
    offense players, there were other unsung heroes here: Benjamin uNKOE Chevasson
    and Jean-Louis KnOxXx Boyer both playing aggressively in their support roles,
    getting enough kills on their own, which disrupted EnVyUs enough to prevent
    their offensive players, Ronnie Talespin DuPree and Timo Taimou Kettunen from
    getting much ground to work with. Not to mention the Zarya work of Micha?l winz
    Bignet, running up kill streaks multiple times while clinging onto single-digit
    health.With TviQ a member of the original IDDQD team, I asked what it meant to
    him to be part of the team that ended EnVyUss streak and he told me that he cant
    deny that it meant quite a bit for [him] to be part of the team ending their
    streak, especially on LAN.Beating EnVyUs didnt end the weekend for Rogue as they
    still had to come back after that win to play the final against REUNITED, ranked
    second in the world at that time by Gosugamers Elo-derived method. After a rough
    game two for Rogue, when REUNITED took advantage of Rogues aggressiveness and
    took the point in Dorado, Rogue won two to win the match 3-1, closing it out
    with an overwhelming final push on Kings Road to take home the $40,000
    first-place prize.Whats next for Team Rogue? After a tough loss to FaZe in the
    winners bracket of the Overwatch Open prelims on Friday that saw them lose on
    Anubis, one of their bread-and-butter maps, Rogue came back to easily defeat
    Tornado RoX and punch their ticket to Atlanta. As TviQ told me of course we have
    to remake the epic matchup we had at Atlantic against EnVyUs, which also
    qualified for their Regional Finals. However, to get to EnVyUs, theyll first
    have to beat the rest of the EU qualifiers. And anyone who has ever played king
    of the hill knows that once youve shoved off your friends and become the new
    king, youve got a big target on your back.
