Popular Overwatch streamer Anthony “harbleu” Ballo shared his thoughts in regards to the Philadelphia Fusion signing Philip “ChipSa” Graham on their team.
The news shocked a lot of professional players and the community when they heard that ChipSa is now part of the Fusion. Popular content creator for team Envy, Justin ‘Jayne’ Conroy, was not happy about the decision stating that the only reason ChipSa made it on the team was because of his brother, Christopher “ChrisTFer” Graham, the assistant coach for the Fusion.
“The way he rages, I find it kinda funny honestly, and he doesn’t seem like a bad guy. So, I’m happy for him.”
Harbleu continued stating that he does feel “somewhat jealous and salty” that ChipSa made it to the Overwatch League and he didn’t, especially that he has been grinding in the Overwatch Contenders and Open Division.
“You know, all these fuckers on Reddit been like Oh you know, the reason Harb’s not in OWL is his hero pool, or you know, it’s because he hasn’t played in like other tournaments and shit.” Harbleu said. “Well, obviously you don’t need to do that. Obviously, if you one-trick a hero, you can get signed to an OWL team.”
Harbleu is without a doubt a skilled player and well known for his skills on Wrecking Ball, he is a consistent top 500 player and has reached rank 1 on the American ladder as a tank main, beating OWL player Space.
“Even though obviously OWL is my goal, and I still want to play in it, and I’m going to put in the effort, it is a little bit like a slap in the face to a lot of Tier 2 players, or players who have played in Contenders. There is no denying that, but I’m not saying that he doesn’t deserve it either.” Harbleu continued.
Harbleu wished ChipSa the best of luck in the Overwatch League, hoping he proves everyone wrong and performs well, before adding that the skill level between Overwatch League and Contenders players isn’t that different, ChipSa will definitely keep up with other professionals seeing that he’s a top-ranked player.
