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. Crazy stuff! Read more …
In the first season of the Overwatch League, the Dallas Fuel had a rollercoaster ride of highs, lows, and in-betweens. Mid-season trades and last-minute switches dominated their time and led to a bottom 6 finish. However, the Fuel have gained Aero as a head coach and have solidified their roster – no scandals allowed. With French synergy in DPS aKm and support uNKOE along with the sheer charisma of off-tank star Mickie, they’re aiming for a better showing this time around. DPS Effect is back in fighting shape and the signing of former Spitfire support Closer adds to their multi-national team.

Every week we will be publishing the OverwatchScore’s OWL Power Rankings. See where your favourite teams fall in our weekly list.
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.
Day four of week three for Stage 4 in the Overwatch League saw two huge upsets that can have serious Stage 4 Playoff repercussions for all teams involved. Check out the recap to see what you may have missed…
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.
I had the craziest dream last week! I was watching an OWL game, as I often do. The Dallas Fuel were playing Philly, and I said to myself, “Ah man, the Fuel are gonna get crushed and I’m gonna be really sad.”
But then, something crazy happened. Read more …
An exciting day for Dallas Fuel fans, a strong 3-1 win against one of the Stage 4 favorites, the Philadelphia Fusion. After the roster changes, the London Spitfire seem on the up, and defeated the Seoul Dynasty in a very close series, that went all the way. And even though the Shanghai Dragons looked good, no one expected them to win against the New York Excelsior.
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.
As Stage 4 of the Overwatch League kicked off the teams have both the Stage Finals and the Inaugural Season Playoffs on their minds and in sight. While the path to the playoffs is easy for the very top teams of the New York Excelsior and Boston Uprising, the teams in the middle are all very much in contention and gunning to lock their own places in history. The new stage means a new patch and this time it includes the long anticipated availability and Overwatch League debut of Brigitte Lindholm.
