Team Summary

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.

Overwatch League – Dallas Fuel vs Los Angeles Valiant – S2W2

Dallas Fuel had a rough Stage 1, but since entering Stage 2 they’ve been performing well, with the addition of AKM on the hitscan DPS champs, and the return of the almost overly aggressive xQc on the tanks. Los Angeles Valiant come into this match with almost the exact opposite storyline. The Valiant were dominant in Stage 1 and really looked like they could be the first team to truly challenge the Korean powerhouses (yes, even before Houston started playing really well). Los Angeles may be currently working through a transition phase (and as a Buffalo Bills fan I really hope they don’t remain in a building/transition phase for the next 19 years), but it seems odd that the Valiant aren’t quite the favourites when playing teams like Dallas.
