How to set up a deadly starting team to dominate Hollywood, King's Row and Numbani

While things are looking fairly vanilla at the moment in terms of team builds, we’re expecting a lot of clever compositions to be cooked up in the many months of metagaming ahead of us in Overwatch. Some of these will no doubt prove to be instant classics, while others will be exposed as rather gimmicky and get quickly countered, before fading off into the background as quickly as they appeared. Such is the nature of an ever-evolving game like Overwatch.

Thanks to the early competitive scene that took place during Overwatch’s beta period, we do actually have an idea of what the best team builds you can field in the game might look like. As we’ve said already they’re pretty plain-looking right now, but as the overall skill level of the playerbase goes up, we expect some very clever tricks to be discovered – they’ll spread like wildfire when they’re found.

In the next installment of our guide to all of the best team compositions currently available in Overwatch, we’re taking a closer look at how to build a better team on the Hybrid maps Hollywood, King’s Row and Numani. As those more outlandish team builds we’re hoping to see are created, we’ll add them here so that you and your friends always have something fun to mess around with. If you discover any fun strategies, please share them in the comments!

A final note before we start. In putting these builds together, we’ve been very mindful of the fact that there should be some degree of flexibility in actually picking your team of six. Most people aren’t, after all, pros and so we’ve tried to give you at least a couple of choices for each role – they’re all pretty interchangeable. It’s also important to remember that these make good starting teams, but you must adapt your Hero selections to counter your opposite numbers!

Alternative defense: 5 Torbjorns and 1 Lucio can make capturing the Payload extremely difficult. Spread the turrets out, be prepared to move them if necessary, and stay mobile as Torbjorn taking pot-shots whenever the opportunity presents itself.
