Heroes never die! Contest: Upload your best Multi-Resurrects!

If you haven’t heard the news, Mercy’s resurrection ability is getting a big overhaul. Mercy will no longer be able to use her ultimate to resurrect multiple teammates. Her ultimate ability will be replaced with the new “Valkyrie” ultimate, which increases her damage, range, and allows her to fly freely. Battle Mercy mains rejoice! 

However, this means that we must bid farewell to multi-resurrects. But dry your tears, Mercy fans, we’re giving multi-resurrects a proper send off with a contest! Two winners will receive the ultimate Mercy prize pack!

To enter, upload an Overwatch video of you resurrecting 2 or more  teammates. Add the tag #GoodbyeMultiRes. You can use our Overwatch integration to help you easily find your Mercy resurrections.

You may submit multiple videos for submission. The more you submit, the better chance you’ll have to win! The winners will be judged and chosen by the Plays.tv staff.

Here’s what’s up for grabs:

2 lucky winners will receive:

  • Mercy Nendoroid
  • Mercy Print by Steph Lew
  • “Have Mercy” Tee
  • $20 Battle.net Gift Card

FULL RULES:

  1. Contest will run from August 30th, 2017 – September 19th, 2017
  2. Videos must be submitted to Plays.tv to qualify
  3. Videos must be from Overwatch and must contain a resurrection of 2 or more team mates.
  4. Videos must be using the Plays.tv Overwatch integration (will be automatically tagged with a “resurrection event”)
  5. Submissions must contain the #GoodbyeMultiRes tag — you may edit this into your description if you forget to add it.
  6. Submissions must be received by 11:59 PM PST on September 19th, 2017 

Remember, HEROES NEVER DIE, so get out there and get some multi-resurrects while you still can! Did someone call a doctor?

Overwatch Integration Spotlight Part 3: Put your videos wherever you want and get noticed

Get noticed

Getting noticed can be difficult with so many channels out there. Plays.tv wants you to have as many chances as you can to get your videos seen.

We provide a place for your video to live, but you can share it to pretty much anywhere your heart desires.

There is one-click sharing to:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter

  • Tumblr

You can also use the link or embed to get creative and post anywhere else.

Something else that Plays.tv is great for is learning from each other. Be it watching gameplay before buying, or discovering strats for the top competitive games, we’ve got it.

We hope you’ve gotten a little something out of our Integration Spotlight series. We can’t wait to see your Overwatch plays!

Overwatch Integration Spotlight Part 1: Manage your matches and plays for the win

Manage Matches

Managing all your Overwatch clips and finding the right one can take a lot of time.

While Plays.tv records in the background with very little effect on your framerate, it’s also cataloging all your key moments so you don’t have to. It organizes this into matches and keeps track of what hero and map you played in the clip.

This means you can quickly find that insane multi-kill or winning resurrection and share it in seconds.

To be specific, it automatically bookmarks the following:

  • Eliminations
  • Deaths
  • Resurrects
  • Play of the Game

It’s a great learning tool that doesn’t take any setup. Our Overwatch integration helps you jump to the good (or bad) stuff quickly to up your game in the next match.

We want to contribute to the sounds of maniacal laughter as you boop your way to the top. Get going!

We’ll be releasing a series of blogs on how to get the most out of it in the next couple weeks, so stay tuned!
