Dallas Fuel announced their new head coach just a day before Stage Four begins in Overwatch League. The Fuel have had a tough time of it, but continue to be a crowd favorite. Here are the details on bringing Aaron “Aero” Atkins in as the new coach.
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.

A though match for all Dallas Fuel fans, whose team were facing the New York Excelsior. As the Dallas Fuel have previously stated, with no possibility for the Stage 3 Playoffs or the Season Finals, they want to take it easy and play the best they can – without expecting a win. It should be an easy match for the New York Excelsior, but are they really able to take all four maps? We are about to find out.
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 …
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.
In a battle for the right to not be considered the second worst team in Overwatch League, Dallas Fuel took on the Florida Mayhem in Wednesday’s final match. Would a resurgent Mayhem be able to claw their way out of their current position, or would the Fuel finally right the ship on their sinking season? Read more …
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 …
The Dallas Fuel have recently released their Head Coach and star DPS player Rascal. San Francisco is looking to figure out how to rotate their talent now that Super and Sinatraa have turned 18 right around the same time their mid-season signings joined the team. Both teams are looking to show that they’re on the ascension by winning this match.
