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.
During the inaugural Overwatch League season, the Houston Outlaws gained fans and loyal Texas support. Built on the backbone of OpTic Gaming, they had a stellar first stage but could not keep up the momentum through the season. For Season 2, they have kept most of their roster, including the clutch tank duo of Coolmatt and Muma and star DPS LiNKzr. With the addition of former Shock DPS Danteh, they are looking to recapture their Stage 1 success, hopefully this time with a Tracer player.

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.
