To celebrate the Year of the Dog, Blizzard put together an adoption event/competition called the Overwatch Puppy Rumble and it’s too much to handle.
Monday night’s Overwatch Puppy Rumble delivered not only with some intense capture the flag action, but also a whole lot of cute puppies dressed up in little Overwatch outfits. The whole two-hour rumble is a must-watch event.
The event was put on in partnership with Wags and Walks, a dog adoption center in Los Angeles, and all of the dogs playing in the Puppy Rumble were available to adopt, which just made the whole show 10 times better.
There were a dozen adorable dogs in total, with six on the red team and six on the blue team. Here’s a look at the red team.
And here’s a look at the blue team.
Don’t worry, no one is asking you to pick sides.
After the teams were introduced, the action got underway, although none of the dogs seemed to really realize which teams they were on or that they were supposed to steal the opposing team’s flag.
Lulu, playing as Symmetra, was the breakout star of the Overwatch Puppy Rumble, having the highest amount of energy and getting into the most trouble through the match, mostly tussling with August (Sombra) and her own teammate Tabitha (Reaper).
Defense was the name of the game throughout the Puppy Rumble, with neither team really going on the offensive. At one point, as a sort of act of defiance, Lulu marked her territory.
The first round finished with no captures, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a round packed with excitement.
In the second round, Lulu was playing hard defense on her blue flag against August, when all of a sudden Lulu’s teammate rushed in and tackled her. The flag nearly moved, but at the end of the round both teams were still scoreless.
Tilly, playing as Roadhog, was one of the unsung heroes of the match. A pretty young dog but one of the more senior players, Tilly mostly sat and bided her time as her teammates did all the busy work.
Of course, we can’t forget about the five chihuahua mix brothers, named after some of the United States’ founding fathers, who rarely left each other’s sides all night while August repeatedly licked and bit the wall of the arena.
In overtime of the final round, the game really started to heat up with a final battle that left the blue flag almost across the middle of the arena, which was just enough movement to give the red team the victory in a stunning upset at the first-ever Overwatch Puppy Bowl.
Hopefully there will be more puppy action to come.
