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.
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.

Are we at the end of another stage again? Already? This is ridiculous!
I know the progression of time is linear and all that, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it these days, especially in the Overwatch League. Week after week, these games seem to fly by- but I suppose that’s why I’m here, right? To slow things down a bit, and show you all the best bits to keep an eye on as we hurtle through time and space. Well don’t worry! I’ve gone and done exactly that. Read on. Read more …
Today the Boston Uprising have announced a partnership with Gillette to be the official shaving product sponsor of the team. The deal includes Gillette branding on Boston’s practice jersey’s, branding in the practice facility, and various social and digital content.
The first match of Friday started with the Dallas Fuel facing off against the Boston Uprising, who currently sit in the first place of Stage 3 – undefeated so far. No one really expected the Dallas Fuel to win, so they were under no real pressure and could try out different options and compositions.
It is Wednesday, my dudes, so let’s start with everyone’s favorite team this stage! Shanghai Dragons, Shanghai Dragons. Oh, when you win? Probably not today, but who knows what the future could hold?

With the end of the stage approaching once again, teams are in a mad dash to secure their spot in the newly expanded 4-team playoff bracket. The Boston Uprising, NYXL and LA Valiant all seem like shoe-ins, but there’s still one more spot to consider.
Fourth place is now the most hotly contested spot in the Overwatch League, and the middle of the pack will need to step up in a big way to secure their place before playoffs come. San Francisco, Seoul, Philly, Houston, London, and the Gladiators are all within a couple maps of each other, so anyone could steal the last spot away by the time the week is through. That’s assuming we don’t see any upsets this week, either… I don’t know if I’d bet on that. Especially once you read this. Read more …
