As a freelancer, I rewrote 5 professional guides (Ana, Brigitte, Lúcio, Reinhardt, and Moira) into video scripts for the website ProGuides. I utilized my knowledge of Overwatch lore, my Diamond-level support "skills," and humorous creative writing to tailor these scripts to a casual audience. I collaborated with my manager and the other freelance writers to ensure our writing styles matched up.
"Missing shots leads to missing grenades leads to missing sleep darts leads to your teammates dying and then you dying and then you lose the point, and oh God, you decide just to switch to Lúcio so you don’t have to think about shooting your teammates and letting everyone die."
"With a mace to the face, Brigitte gets up close and personal. Sure, she still puts out some strong healing numbers like any other support, but hey — this Shieldmaiden has the potential to really bash some skulls in. Which, uh, on second thought, doesn’t sound very chivalrous. It’s fine — her heart’s in the right place."
"With his adrenaline-pumping tracks and unwavering optimism, Lúcio protects those who need it most and fights for a better world. His abilities give him a cool and unique playstyle that’ll have you constantly moving, whether on the walls or behind enemy lines. [...] Do you want to skate fast and kick ass? Then Lúcio is the hero for you."
"His drive to defend the innocent perfectly encapsulates the role of a main tank. With his massive damage-blocking shield, high HP total, and strong close-range damage, Reinhardt wields enough strength to carry games. His kit may seem easy to learn at first, and you may be tempted to wildly swing your hammer around, but to master Reinhardt is to learn patience."
"With her cocky, sarcastic quips, know-it-all charm, and definitely-not-a-Kamehameha-ultimate, Moira brings a certain drive and power that other supports can’t provide."
