You can hire women by match, hour, or day to help you become better at Overwatch via temp hiring site Fiverr, apparently.

These self-proclaimed "Heroes For Hire" are no joke, advertising themselves as competitively able and a great asset for those dedicated players looking to win often in the team-based FPS. Seeing as how Fiverr has no rules for what profession you can bill for (as long as it's legal), this seems like the perfect marketplace to sell their skill sets.

Though appearing to be somewhat of a cause for concern given the sleazy possibilities that can occur, this trend has caught on, with nearly 350 opportunities for paid companions listed on the site at the time of this writing.

What's more is that these listings, which usually feature a photo of a young woman, start anywhere from $5 up to around $50, depending on the agreement. The general consensus seems to be that if one is spending a lot of time playing video games, she might as well get paid for it.

In other news, Blizzard recently revealed Overwatch's drop rates as per the Chinese government's newest legislation.

What do you think of this trend? Will it catch on or have disastrous consequences? Let us know in the comments below!
