Every Sunday Overwatch League Co-Founders Taco & Mash host a roundup of the latest and greatest of the week’s storylines. We partnered with the great folks over at eStarz to produce what we think is a super enjoyable show. This week we covered topics spanning the Houston Outlaws issue’s fielding an impactful Tracer player, how good the Los Angeles Gladiators have suddenly gotten, who’s been hiding in the Philadelphia Fusion’s tree house, and much more!
Previously known as Optic Gaming, the Houston Outlaws are one of the twelve teams in the inaugural season for the Overwatch League. After bringing on fan-favorite Flame to build their roster they’ve assembled an amazing list of players that should capture the interest of American fans.

The Houston Outlaws and Florida Mayhem both are entering the latter half of Week 3 with losing streaks. Can Houston get back on their feet and get a victory? Or will the Mayhem blow the Outlaws away and obtain a much needed confidence boost of their own?
Overwatch League continues to enforce a heavy zero tolerance policy as more punishments were handed down today. Here is a list of the fines and suspensions.
Overwatch League – Houston Outlaws vs Los Angeles Valiant – S2W3
The fashionable Muma (KACHOW!) lead the Houston Outlaws into the arena, looking to end their loss streak and capitalize on the their quickly descending opposition. The Los Angeles Valiant entered the arena, after being crushed the night before by the Los Angeles Gladiators, as they looked to extend their wings and rise above their opponents.
In a day full of fantastic matches, this might stand above the rest, as the #1 seeded NYXL take on the up and coming Houston Outlaws. Can Houston maintain their momentum against the top dogs? Or will New York remind us why they’re the #1 seed?
