Today I’ll be talking about support players – one from each team. Supports have a special place in my heart – I played Medic in TF2 and Resto Druid in WoW, so I’ve always kept an eye on what the healers are doing in any game I follow. Overwatch is no exception, and what’s great is that their gameplay can be just as interesting and compelling as any Tracer’s or Genji’s! I hope you enjoy this closer look at 12 of my favorite support players. Each has the chance to really make his mark on the League this season.
