The Mayhem enter the arena all business like Purple Cobras ready to sink their fangs into their average opponents. The New York Excelsior casually stroll into the arena positioned far from being underdogs, looking to lock in their Stage 1 Playoff berth with Big Boss Pine in the opening match but Saeyolbe sitting in the wings.
The Florida Mayhem started the inaugural Overwatch League season with only six players, adding mid-season pickups in an attempt to put together a cohesive team on the fly. With a disappointing bottom 2 finish, the Mayhem are starting with a blank slate for Season 2…literally. Having dropped the majority of their Season 1 roster (aside from DPS TviQ), they are rebuilding around star DPS Sayaplayer with a mostly-Korean team. Time will tell if these changes will allow them to climb the ladder this season.

Overwatch league week three recaps about the equalization of the matches. We finally saw that no teams are undefeated. Here is how it happened.
In the second Overwatch League match of the day, Los Angeles Valiant took on the Florida Mayhem. Would the hometown heroes, and favourites, be able to defuse those pesky Floridian bombers?
A battle between two 0-3 teams brings us a match both teams desperately hope to win to help get their team trending in the right direction. It’s certainly too soon to call this a ‘must win’ match for either team, but continuing a free fall is rapidly going to put the playoffs further and further from sight.
Florida Mayhem faced off against the Seoul Dynasty in match one tonight. Florida came onto the stage with swagger. Their small roster undeterred at the prospect of taking on Seoul. The analyst’s predicted Seoul to take this, and over at Overwatchscore we overwhelmingly thought Seoul would take it with a 4-0. Could Florida surprise us all and take a match off the early favourites for the OWL title?
