A controversial tweet is going around the Overwatch fanbase, from London Spitfire General Manager Susie Kim. The team wanted to do a fan meeting during the World Cup, but apparently, Korea’s own Seoul Dynasty did not allow this to happen.
After a rather disappointing start from the London Spitifre in their first Playoff match, they had to change things up. The Gladiators themselves came in as the clear favorites this times around. And what a great match that was, the Spitfire finally back to playing as a unit, with great plays from each player. Especially Birdring and Profit played out of their minds and had some of the best games in a while. A well-deserved win in the second match, which will be decided in the third and last match.
With Season 1 of the Overwatch League coming to a close, and the announcement that there will be six new teams for Season 2, why not have a look at upcoming talent?

It seemed that both teams have decided to prepare for a triple tank line-up as this dominated all maps played. Overall, a lot of different heroes have seen some playtime, so let’s dive into a quick recap for the different maps.
