Dids is a DPS expert from the UK, specializing in hitscan DPS heroes with a unique affinity for the snipers, Hanzo and Widowmaker. He has finished Grandmaster/Top 500 in every competitive season of Overwatch since launch and finished the opening season of Contenders with a top 16 placement. After witnessing the announcement of Overwatch at Blizzcon, Dids quickly decided that this was exactly the kind of game he could excel at. He entered the game for the first time with the goal of competing at the highest level in mind! And now, after hitting heights of 4617 SR, he has joined GameLeap to pass on his knowledge and solidify his position in the Overwatch community at large.

@YZGamer68 A gap well-spotted :) We are planning to work with Dids to release a 'Widowmaker Abilities' guide which will include all of the Grapple Hook info, as well as covering the Mine and her weapon mechanics!



In counters you forgot to mention Widow is a great counter to herself..
