'Overwatch' pro uses Sombra in a tournament, dies immediately

You should probably wait a little bit longer than 24 hours to use a brand-new Overwatch hero in a professional tournament.

At OGN's South Korean Overwatch Apex tournament, player Kim "Esca" In-jae jumped into a game on Temple of Anubis as the brand new hero Sombra, marking the first time the hero has been played in a professional competition.

Esca's team Lunatic-Hai was on the attacking side against Mighty Storm. Esca's hero choice was a surprise to the on-air talent, and Esca quickly demonstrated why you shouldn't play as heroes the same day they come out.

Esca managed to stealthily make his way past the first chokepoint on Temple of Anubis to sneak up on Mighty Storm's defense, but the enemy Ana's Sleep Dart stop Esca right in his tracks.

With such low health the sleeping Sombra was a quick kill for Ana, who only needed three shots to take Sombra down. The first professional Sombra lasted a measly 24 seconds.

That doesn't mean Sombra is a garbage hero that nobody should pick, it just means that Sombra will take some time to get used to. Esca is one of the best Overwatch players in the world and was part of the South Korean squad that dominated the Overwatch World Cup, so it wasn't Esca's lack of skills either.

Please pick your heroes responsibly.
