The slogan of the Overwatch league team "Texas Hard" is deflated by Boner Jokes

At the end of January, Overwatch The league team, the Houston Outlaws, has unveiled its roster for the second season and its new slogan: "#TexasHard". They hoped that fans would use this hashtag with sincerity and heart, having obviously forgotten that they were on the Internet, where it literally never happened. Today, they have changed.

The most important comment (not pinned) on the list and the slogan of the video reveal: "Texas Hard? … guys. "Inevitably, many people have used the hashtag to say that they are #TexasHard for big games, or that, for example, Jiri "Linkzr", Masalin's Widowmaker player makes them #TexasHard.

Shortly after the start of the slogan, the Outlaws released another video explaining its meaning. They came from a call in game that they used to coordinate their strategies and assert a benefit.

"Texas" was just a call we had dialed. If you say "Texas", it just means that everyone is coming to the point, "said DPS player Jacob" Jake "Lyon, which is useful, added his teammates, because there is no another context in Overwatch in which someone would say that. If Outlaws players hear "Texas" in their voice communications, they all know what it means.

OK, until here, everything is fine. It makes sense. But why all the rest? Jake went on to say that in one game, he had told his teammates to "do well in Texas" because he was "very convinced" that everyone needed to take the turn. "We are going to win 100% if we all keep to one point," he said.

The team has made it a slogan, according to Deputy General Manager Adam "Mesr" De La Torre, because it is a rallying cry. They want fans to have a slogan that helps them to get together.

Which one is technically what they had, although probably not as they wanted it. The Houston Outlaws are my favorite OWL team. They come from Texas, their home country, their players are older, they are eternal outsiders and they have transformed Junkrat, a cute self-destructive doofus, at the center of their team's lineup last season. They are a little odd, a bit off and sometimes a little awkward. I guess what I'm saying is, they are exactly the kind of team that would turn #TexasHard into a slogan.

Everything happened to a head yesterday when the spark of Hangzhou started promoting their next game with the Outlaws. The Hangzhou hashtag is #Bang, which – when strategically # TexasHard-ed alongside # TexasHard – creates #Bang #TexasHard.

At that time, even outlaw general manager Matt "Flame" Rodriguez took part in the joke. "Who else is pumped for the #TexasHard #Bang," he said. says on Twitter.

Today, three weeks after attempting to turn #TexasHard into something, the Outlaws have acknowledged their defeat against an image of a new hashtag, #AnteUp, kicking #TexasHard on a staircase. Naturally, people have responded to this change with memesbut also sincere thanks. Well, sincere-ish.

"Finally, I can put this in my description and do not worry about the fact that my followers think I'm unhappy," says a fan.
