Los Angeles Valiant are a team building a strong local fan base. They have an advantage with games played locally, but they are going a step further. Our writer Austin “Keaser” Hanlin went to the event and talked with fans and team together. Here is what he learned.
Boston up against the Dallas Fuel after their recent controversy. Both teams could use this win, Boston not looking so hot this stage, while Dallas suffered a humiliating reverse sweep at the hands of the Mayhem. Who’ll turn up today?
London Spitfire continue their strong streak in Stage two as the Los Angeles Gladiators pushed for a victory in tonight’s opening match.
The first match of the end of the Week 2 is between none other than the Philadelphia Fusion and the London Spitfire! A match last week you wouldn’t have even battered an eye at has now become the center of interest for any fan of the Overwatch League. Can the Fusion keep up their hot streak? Or will the Spitfire draw the line between them and the up and coming?
The final day of matches in Week 1 of Stage 2. Fusion vs. Mayhem. In this match, Fusion looks to keep their spot as a solid mid-tier team with a lot more to gain. While Mayhem was eager to try and prove their worth, with a great game against New York earlier in the week. Regardless of what team you wanted to see come on top, you knew that they were going to be great DPS plays from each team today. Which will come out on top though? Carpe and EQO or LogiX and TviQ?
Twitch and Overwatch League have announced that you’ll be able to earn Overwatch League Tokens for watching the games. This is a big deal, as it means you’ll see a lot more players representing their teams in-game, assuming they haven’t already bought league tokens to support their teams in the first place. It’s also an incentive for players to tune into more of the games, as a percent of viewers will be gifted 100 league tokens on top of those they were already earning for watching!
