We often see enthusiasm go one step further when it comes to fans of certain video games, and this particular case for Overwatch is a prime example.
Mateus Mognon, an Overwatch fan from Brazil, has officially registered a Church for Hanzo. Yes, you heard us right. A registered religious institution has been set up in the fan’s home country, to showcase how simple it is to do so. To pull it off, you simply need an address, a lawyer’s signature, money, five people and a written statute. From here, a notary’s office approves the paper, after which you can apply for tax immunity.
So the process to do so is fairly simple, and the Church of Hanzo has some beliefs of its own. These include taking Tuesdays off for studies, and prohibiting the use of the phrase ‘Hanzo main’. If you’re looking to be baptised into said church, then all you have to do is play a single Overwatch match. More than anything, its most interesting to see just how easy it is to bring such an idea to fruition, set up by such a swift method for something like a religious institution.
Hanzo, like a few other choice Overwatch heroes, is often subject to a some stick. I mean, most of us have already seen countless ‘Genji needs healing’ memes, or let’s just say derogatory insults aimed at Bastion mains.
