The final weekend of Stage 4 saw a lot of intense matches and a lot of changes to the teams gunning for playoff hopes. We are now set and have our final six teams ready. However, Stage 4 showed a lot of promise on what this league could be in the future. With teams coming back like the Dallas Fuel, and the L.A. Valiant topping NYXL in the last match.
Previously known as EnVyUs the Dallas Fuel are one of the twelve teams in the inaugural season for the Overwatch League. EnVyUs dominated Contenders Season One and staked a claim as the best team in the west. After their victory they picked up additional star players such as Seagull, xQc and Custa, the Dallas Fuel hope to be the premier team in the league. They also are hoping to do this with a roster that has no Korean players.

What an absolute culture flip from the Dallas Fuel in the last stage of the OWL Season 1. After going through countless trials and tribulations as a team, it finally looked like the 4-24 Fuel were firing on all cylinders over the course of Stage 4, led by Mickie and his brawny Brigitte. Taimou and OGE were found their former glory and were looking crisp and clean, Seagull had improved upon his already rock-solid D.Va play, and HarryHook and Unkoe stayed sharp in the backline.

The final week of Stage 4 began tonight leading into the finals as well as the Grand Final playoffs. Here is how the matches played out on Wednesday night!
These rankings are highly fluid, not necessarily indicative of League positioning, and based on what I see during play. Like all Power Rankings, a team on a hot streak may find themselves higher than one with more wins, just as a team on a cold streak may be relegated lower on the list than their Table position would suggest. If you disagree, let me know. If you agree, well let me know too so we can laugh at those who don’t. Read more …
The first day of S4W4 came to a close with a bang. Boston snuck by Seoul to get their first win, Shanghai continued their winless season (though they came the closest they’ve ever been to victory against the Florida Mayhem,) and the Houston Outlaws shocked the Fuel in a convincing 3-1 victory.

But then, something crazy happened. Read more …
