Stage Four continues as teams fight for final maps to make the playoffs. While NYXL maintains their lead, it is a close match up between teams trying to make the cut. Here is how the night went down.
Despite multiple scandals and setbacks during the inaugural season, the Boston Uprising managed to rally in the latter half to maintain a top 6 finish. Working within a multilingual environment and leaning on the talents of individual players were keys to the Uprising’s success. Striker’s stellar Tracer play and NotE’s flex tank skills helped support the team. With multiple pickups for Season 2, including Team United Kingdom’s Fusions and New Zealand DPS Colourhex, the Uprising are looking to change their look and keep up their success.

Day One of Week Two in this fourth and final Stage of the OWL’s inaugural season was a doozie. The surprises continue, as the Brigitte meta seems to be turning the OWL on its head. Dallas improved to 2-1, giving themselves their first over .500 stage record of the season. Los Angeles Valiant took down the Florida Mayhem to improve their lead over the Seoul Dynasty in the Pacific Division. To finish the night Los Angeles’s other team the Gladiators took down the Houston Outlaws, improving their playoff chances.
What a stage it’s been so far, huh? I kinda (and by kinda I mean definitely) regret missing Watch Out last week, but final exams wait for no man, even if there were amazing Overwatch games to cover. With those finals now totally (hopefully) passed, it’s time to take a look at this week’s matches!
Stage 4 is starting today, which means it’s time for new predictions! It feels like with every stage it gets harder and harder to predict which teams will find their way to the top of the leaderboard. Some teams are improving, some are in a slump. With a new patch, and most likely a completely new meta, we could see a lot of changes.
With stage four still days away, you might be jones-ing for your next Overwatch fix. I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve gone and rewatched the stage three playoffs one or two (or four) times already, and let me tell you- you notice something new every time!
To help you streamline your Overwatch fix process, here’s a recap of all the stage three playoffs moments. A concentrated dose of gaming goodness, you might say. Enjoy! Read more …
Boston Uprising sit one game away from having a perfect stage, but are the Los Angeles Gladiators going to give it to them? We’ll find out today in the Overwatch League. Expect to see a great game here from both teams, as one fights for a world first, while the other aims to not let it happen.
