Overwatch Bootcamps by Ludification
Donald Yeo, better known as Ludification, was a top-tier competitive FPS player in several big titles such as the Battlefield series, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Blackshot and Sudden Attack. With his rich competitive background, he conducted Bootcamps for Overwatch to guide newcomers and veterans alike.
In these bootcamps, he taught the audience the foundations of playing an FPS game, such as movement and aiming. All his bootcamps were done on his stream, and were all supported by National Youth Council, SCOGA and Sound Blaster.
To round up the sessions, the bootcamp participants engaged in 3v3 games using only hitscan heroes to pit what they learned during the bootcamp against each other. Most of the participants shown significant improvements after the end of each session.
