During PAX East, which happened this weekend, Blizzard were running an Overwatch promotion with Uber. It was called Uberwatch, and had special souped up cars ferrying con goers from hotels to the convention centre. Even the drivers were in cosplay.
Well, things took an unfortunate turn last night during PAX’s close. As reported by Gearbox president, also at the con showing off his own competitive shooter, Randy Pitchford (via Kotaku) of all people caught the aftermath. Thankfully no one was hurt during the accident. Here is a picture of the mess.
Just left PAX East and out full house Main Theater show to see a monster truck branded with competitive game run over a civilian car.

Good to see no one was hurt. Hopefully all gets sorted out for all parties with as little grief as possible.
