Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls!  Episode 17 of the Cavalry is in our midst.  In it, Kevin Ellis aka Multizord, Stephen Parrish aka Tankzord, and--waking up from his nap--Matt Zornes, aka Slambo talk some Overwatch!

There can be no doubt that the Olive Warbler is poised to be the most significant bird in the Overwatch universe...period.

The boys first discuss the merits and disadvantages to cross-platform play, referring to the following article:

Next, there was a big Tracer reveal in Heroes of the Storm, and uh...well, we called it. Big time. Here's that link:

In further news, Cloud 9 sponsored googleme, and is onto becoming one of the scene's top teams for sure.  If only they could take care of that pesky IDDQD...

Speaking of IDDQD, they killed it in both the GosuGamers Weekly EU and NA #7 this week.  Which sort of prompted the main discussion--do severe beat downs in Overwatch feel TOO bad?

For Community Content shoutouts, we have Falcon_Kick's Overwatch Hero Meta Report, found at: https://www.reddit.com/r/Overwatch/comments/49ja9b/overwatch_hero_meta_report_3_are_we_balanced_yet/

And the GosuGamers caster, Hex, did an Overwatch Power Rankings of the pro teams here: http://www.gosugamers.net/overwatch/features/4821-hex-s-overwatch-power-rankings-2

Last but not least, the patch had a significant impact. The team discusses it, as well as a quick overview of the new map, Ilios! http://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20742695178
