At the 16th position of our Overwatch League 2021 Power Rankings are the Houston Outlaws.


Houston scouted many young talents from the Overwatch Contenders and even Collegiate Overwatch. To help young players adapt to the Overwatch League, the Houston Outlaws can also count on some seasoned League players.

William “Crimzo” Hernandez made a name for himself in the Overwatch Contenders, winning the 2019 Season North America West tournament with Team Envy, the Dallas Fuel’s academy team. He was then promoted to the main team, joining the Dallas Fuel for the Overwatch League 2020 Season. Crimzo now begins a new adventure with the Houston Outlaws.

Enrique “Joobi” Triana is a young player, who just turned 18 on April 4. Joobi is the first player to directly go from a Collegiate Overwatch team to the Overwatch League, even if he previously played in Contenders NA. He played with different teams in Contenders, before joining HU Storm, the esports team from Harrisburg University. Houston Outlaws scouts noticed the player, who now joins the Overwatch League.

Jacob “JAKE” Lyon signs his return as a player in the Overwatch League. After two seasons with Houston Outlaws, he retired from competitive Overwatch to join the analysts’ desk. While he may not be in the starting six as the Houston Outlaws count a total of 5 DPS players, his insight might benefit the team, just like an additional analyst or coach would.

Houston Outlaws 2021 Power Rankings

The Houston Outlaws is home to many seasoned Overwatch League players this season. While the team includes many good individual talents, the competition in the Overwatch League is harder each year, and it may not be enough to defeat stronger rosters.

One of the main dangers for the Houston Outlaws this season is the lack of experience of some key players of the team. The tanking duo is making its first steps in the Overwatch League, while the main support just comes out of Collegiate Overwatch.

The DPS line of the Houston Outlaws is packed, even if Jacob “JAKE” Lyon will more likely coach the team than join the starting six. If the DPS players can compete with other talented players, the Houston Outlaws may need some time to find its rhythm in the Overwatch League.

How to get the new Stasis Aspects in Destiny 2’s Season of the Splicer

Avatar

Published

on

Season of the Splicer added a series of new ways to fight the Darkness in Destiny 2. Not all of them are weapons, however: Bungie also developed an additional Stasis Aspect for each class, and they can help in the fight against the Darkness.

Obtaining the new Aspects is a matter of finishing the Aspect of Interference quest, which sends the player on a scavenger hunt around Kell’s Rising in Europa and puts them against a Vex simulation. Before trying their hand at the new quest, however, players must have acquired all other Stasis Aspects.

The three new aspects are Diamond Lance (Titan), Glacial Harvest (Warlock), and Touch of Winter (Hunter), and they offer new ways to customize Stasis subclasses. Here’s how to get them.

Aspect of Interference

The first step to getting the new Aspects is a quest given by the Exo Stranger, which involves finding Entropic Shards around Kell’s Rising. Bring your Salvation’s Grip—you’re gonna need it to destroy them.

Take advantage of the new landing zone in Eventide Ruins and follow the map marker to Kell’s Rising, where players go during the Beyond Light campaign. Guardians must find six Entropic Shards around the area, but luckily, they are easy to follow and form a path until the objective. Each of them will also show a quest indicator.

Follow the pathways until you get to an open area where you fight a Spider Tank in Beyond Light. The final Entropic Shard will be to the left side of the area, close to a walkway. (If it doesn’t spawn, restarting the quest can fix it).

Destroying the last shard will summon a few waves of particularly tricky Vex that are above the 1310 level cap from Season of the Chosen and will put up a good fight. The good news is that Salvation’s Grip isn’t necessary anymore, so take out your heavy weapon of choice and get to work.

After taking out all the Vex (including a hardy Wyvern), the mission will proceed to the next step: participate in a heroic Exo Challenge.

Heroic Simulation

The final step on the way to the Aspect is finishing a Heroic Exo Challenge. They rotate every week between Safeguard, Survival, and Agility, following the normal cycle in Europa. Don’t forget to pack the appropriate gear, including champion mods and weapons.

After completing the Heroic Exo Challenge, players must head to the Ziggurat in Beyond to get the final Aspect for their collection. The new piece will be on a second page inside the Stasis class menu.
