Philadelphia Fusion vs the Shanghai Dragons in week 4 of stage 2 in the Overwatch League. The Dragons continue to fight against the heavy contenders in the league, taking a map here and there. Will this match be the one where they finally make progress? Or will the Fusion use these Dragons as just another stepping stone on their return to the top?
The Los Angeles Valiant vs Los Angeles Gladiators in another round of the battle for LA. With the Gladiators pulling themselves up out of the mid-tier standing, they’re coming for revenge against Valiant. The boys in green on the other hand aren’t too ready to give up the gold on this one, and so we look forward to who will claim the title of Kings of California!
Los Angeles Gladiators face off against the Shanghai Dragons in Week 2 of Stage 2. The Dragons have a pretty poor record from Stage 1, and with their new players, might have a chance of bringing that around. While Gladiators hold their shields as strong as ever, hoping to make their way up in the ranks, there’s a real chance for the Dragons to turn their luck around with fresh blood leading the squad.
Boston Uprising vs. Los Angeles Valiant in Day 4, Week 4 of Overwatch League in their continued climb toward the top tier teams. With such a powerful victory yesterday, Boston Uprising has a chance to stomp across the face of Los Angeles and claim victory for the East Coast against the West Coast. Los Angeles Valiant, on the other hand, must win to keep a spot in the Playoffs.
Los Angeles Gladiators vs. Boston Uprising in day 3 of the Overwatch League. Both teams sit in the midrange of the standing, and so both are vying for a spot in the upper reaches. So while Los Angeles bring their #ShieldsUP, Boston is ready to #RiseUP to the challenge.
New York Excelsior vs Los Angeles Gladiators was the second match today. The scrappy Gladiators look to topple one of the best teams in the league. Our man Steve “Wrekk” Oros has the breakdown.
A battle between two 0-3 teams brings us a match both teams desperately hope to win to help get their team trending in the right direction. It’s certainly too soon to call this a ‘must win’ match for either team, but continuing a free fall is rapidly going to put the playoffs further and further from sight.
I had the pleasure of heading down to Philadelphia to attend the launch party for the Philly Fusion’s premiere into the Overwatch League. The team had faced some troubles going into the preseason and had to bail out, so this was a fairly important event for the residents of the city and the players alike. Hosted by Tim Buckman, Head of Corporate Communications for Comcast Spectacor, the event took place at Wahoo’s Tacos and More right next to Drexel University, where no expense was spared to invite the locals in with a red carpet and exemplary service. (The food was worth the trip alone!)
