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.
Previously known as the Misfits the Florida Mayhem are one of the twelve teams in the inaugural season for the Overwatch League. The Misfits dominated contenders Season One during the regular season but fell in the finals to finish in second place. Unlike almost every other team that had their roster sign up for the Overwatch League, the Florida Mayhem haven’t signed any other players yet. With a current roster of only six players, we expect to hear about signings made but not announced soon.

Week One of Stage Four came to a close with a bang. Philadelphia cemented themselves in the playoff conversation, Shanghai continued their winless season (extended their record of worst streak in all of esports), and the NYXL stayed atop the table with a convincing victory over those rivals from across the pond the London Spitfire.

Stage 4 is starting today, which means it’s time for new predictions! It feels like with every stage it gets harder and harder to predict which teams will find their way to the top of the leaderboard. Some teams are improving, some are in a slump. With a new patch, and most likely a completely new meta, we could see a lot of changes.
The San Francisco Shock managed to beat the Houston Outlaws earlier this week and are definitely on the up. Not able to reach the Stage 3 Playoffs anymore, they can still work on joining the Season Playoffs, therefore every map win counts.
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 …
It’s another day of Overwatch League with your second match this Friday. Up to bat was the Florida Mayhem and the Shanghai Dragons. Two teams people would say are playing much better than in Stage one or the start of Stage two. But does better for the Shanghai Dragons really mean a win over the Florida Mayhem? Or have the Mayhem been preparing for this match so that they aren’t the ones to lose to the winless team?
