And just like that Overwatch League is back! After what has been the busiest mid-stage signing period yet, we will see many teams with new faces. One of those teams is the Dallas Fuel who have swapped Custa for Unkoe, reuniting the Frenchman with AKM. As for the Dragons, we see some new faces with Ado and Daemin, and with the ever popular Geguri, they hope to gel they’re young roster and get their first victory of the season.
I had a pretty strange conversation, probably ten or so times, in the week or so leading up to the first days of the Overwatch League. Didn’t matter if it was my mom, or my girlfriend, or my boss, or my coworkers, or my roommates. It went a bit like this. Every. Time.

NEW LOOK, SAME GREAT TASTE
Watch Out! is back and better than ever! Stage 2 was great, but we might be staring down the barrel of the best stage yet. Teams are getting it together just in time to make a mad dash for the playoffs, and western teams are rapidly approaching the levels necessary to challenge the top dogs in the league. Philly is already there. If any other teams want to entertain a shot at the playoffs, they’ll need to get started right here, in week 1 of stage 3. Who has what it takes?
There’s a lot to consider as we approach the halfway point of the stage- I know, already, right?- and the playoff picture might start solidifying right here, right now. These matches are gonna be great! But which ones will be the greatest? Well, I’ll tell you.

Overwatch League begins again this week. Stage 2 kicks off this week with a lot of changes to look forward too. As many of the interviews have shown, this stage is anyone game. Here are some of the matches to look forward too this weekend.
Let’s be honest, coming into this game, on paper, we all feel like the Seoul Dynasty should destroy the San Francisco Shock….right?! Well if Valiant showed the OWL world anything Wednesday, it’s that the Dynasty has an exploitable Achilles’ Heel. Seoul’s Support play is severely lacking as of late. I’m not sure if this is the result of attempting to change things up against London, or just that the rest of the League has caught on to how Seoul plays. If any player can take advantage of the seemingly crumbling Support players on Seoul, it would be San Francisco’s own Sleepy. Did Seoul rebound? Did their communication issues continue? Were the SF Shock able to quiet the Dynasty dreams of reigning supreme? Seoul needed to win all four maps to keep their Title Match hopes alive. Would they be able to do it, or would San Francisco keep to their name and Shock the Dynasty, as I predicted, forcing 5 maps and knocking Seoul out of the race?
Friday’s first match in Week 5 is a battle for ninth place, but that doesn’t mean we’re not gonna see some entertaining Overwatch!!
The Gladiators have the edge in the standings, but lately have struggled against some tough opponents. I think the Fuel might have a chance here. Plus, they had a fantastic intro.
