Every Sunday Overwatch League Co-Founders Taco & Mash host a roundup of the latest and greatest of the week’s storylines. We partnered with the great folks over at eStarz to produce what we think is a super enjoyable show. This week we covered topics spanning the Houston Outlaws issue’s fielding an impactful Tracer player, how good the Los Angeles Gladiators have suddenly gotten, who’s been hiding in the Philadelphia Fusion’s tree house, and much more!
The San Francisco Shock are surging of late and they come up against the London Spitfire, who are fresh off a loss against the Los Angeles Gladiators in Week 3. Danteh and Babybay will be looking to put on a showing to management that says they deserve their spots in the starting roster despite recently signing Architect and Moth as well as Sinatraa turning 18. London will be looking to bounce back after a hard loss to a team led by Fissure, whom they traded away.
In a statement released on the Dallas Fuel’s page on the Overwatch League homepage Dallas has announced that they have terminated the contract of Felix “xQc” Lengyel. xQc has had no shortage of drama surrounding him since the Overwatch League began, notably receiving a four-game suspension this week.
The London Spitfire have announced today on Twitter that they have signed Jang-hyeon “TiZi” Hwang, a former tank for RunAway in Korea. TiZi is a main tank player, and will likely step in as the backup at that position when he arrives. Known for his aggressive style of play, TiZi should give the Spitfire a change of pace at the main tank position off the bench.
The Dallas Fuel have announced today on Twitter that they have signed Son “OGE” Min-seok, a former tank for CONBOX in Korea. OGE is a main tank player, and will rival xQc, Cocco, and Taimou for time at that position when he arrives. The team expects that OGE will not be in contention for Stage Two, but will arrive in time to play in Stage Three.
The Shangai Dragons have announced on Twitter that their Head Coach Chen “U4” Congshan will be stepping down from that role with the team. Current Assistant Coach Sun Jun “Kong” Young will act as interim Head Coach while the Dragons begin to look for another coach.
The Los Angeles Gladiators work to develop chemistry with new main tank Fissure in order to take on the resurgent Seoul Dynasty. The Dynasty come in as the favorite but the Gladiators are far from a team that Seoul could write off. Check out what went down when the two clashed in Stage Two, Week Two.
