The first matchup Friday night sees the London Spitfire taking on the Boston Uprising. The last time these two teams faced off, underdog Boston dealt the seemingly unbeatable London their very first loss of the season with a surprise upset that took five maps for the Uprising to claim victory. Will history repeat itself or will the Spitfire take the win against the struggling team from Beantown?
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.

Looking for their first ever Overwatch League victory, the Shanghai Dragons do battle with the struggling Boston Uprising. Will the Dragons topple their opponents? Or will Boston rise up and teach Shanghai a lesson?
The Boston Uprising looked to prove that they haven’t fallen off the horse in Stage 2, where they haven’t won a single map. They faced the Florida Mayhem, who have taken maps off two of the best teams in the league in Stage 2.
The New York Excelsior enter the arena set on cementing themselves as the dominant Overwatch League team for the northeast. The Boston Uprising come into week 2 after a very difficult week 1, where they didn’t even take a map, looking to turn it around with the upset win and ignite the revolution.
The Outlaws came into the match as a top tier team trying to show that they are contenders. The Uprising looked to prove themselves after a 4-0 loss to the Fusion earlier in the week. Did the Uprising show that they can contend? Did the Outlaws show that they are a force to be reckoned with?
Both the Boston Uprising and Philadelphia Fusion duke it out in their first match of Overwatch League’s second stage, but who emerged the victor? Read to find out!
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.
This weekend Overwatch League had their first Stage Finals. The season is broken down into four Stages leading into an overall playoffs and Grand Finals. Stage One ended with an amazing run by the London Spitfire. All of the teams in the finals had a lot to say as the tournament rolled through a long extended play session on Saturday. Here are some of the take aways from the teams.
YOU’RE TALKING PLAYOFFS?! Yes we are talking playoffs. Arriving to the final day of stage 1, there are HUGE playoff implications. For the Houston Outlaws, a win and they’re in. The Boston Uprising must win by more than 2 maps and they move on. If Boston only wins by 1 map, then the Los Angeles Valiant sneak into the playoffs. Once again, the implications are HUGE.
