It is no secret that South Korea has dominated esports for a long time. Overwatch League is seeing the same trend. The rosters built from former APEX Tournament powerhouses seem to be unstoppable. As the league takes esports into main stream media, new fans are seeing just how tough these team can play.

A clash between two 1-2 teams that have been on the rise rounds out another amazing week of Overwatch League. Taco predicted this would be the match of the week, would it live up to the hype?
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.
Los Angeles Valiant and London Spitfire began the match series on Saturday. Both teams played well in what was probably the most exciting match so far for Overwatch League. Our analyst Brandon Padilla has the full breakdown for you.
The two teams come into this match from opposing angles. While London is currently undefeated and looking strong, the Fuel are 0-3, had a player suspended earlier in the day, and are looking for some stability to help right the ship. Dallas chose to come into the match with their original EnVyUs lineup to try and settle things down, but were they able to overcome the might of the Spitfire?
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.
Seoul Dynasty vs Boston Uprising marked the first match of the night. Dynasty remains undefeated, can the Uprising have their own revolution and bring down the top team?
