Shanghai Dragons Team Preview

In the weeks leading up to the start of Overwatch League’s second season, we’ll be introducing you to each team and updating you on their rosters, staff, and history.

Contenders Australia: Week 4 Recap

The penultimate week of Contenders Australia season 3 was about as one-sided as it can get. Group A saw overwhelming victories to the strongest teams – 4-0’s to Sydney, Athletico and Blank all took their wins with decisive force. Heist, Melbourne, and Order all took similarly strong wins, leaving the lower tier teams in quite the predicament. At this point in the season, we’re seeing teams confirm their positions for playoffs. The top four from each group will qualify for quarterfinals, while the remaining two teams from each group will be forced to return to Trials and qualify for next season all over again.

Contenders Australia: Week 3 Recap

Some true variation from the ever-present GOATS came up this week. Veteran teams saw a rattling by some rookies, but all in all, the status quo didn’t get mixed up too much.
