Previously known as Cloud9 the London Spitfire are one of the twelve teams in the inaugural season for the Overwatch League. They went through a number of iterations before becoming the twelve-man roster they are today. They started with NA and EU teams competing as Cloud9 before acquiring KongDoo Panthera, one of the top teams in Korea. They later acquired another top Korean team, GC Busan and combined that roster with KongDoo Panthera’s to form what is now the London Spitfire.

What a stage it’s been so far, huh? I kinda (and by kinda I mean definitely) regret missing Watch Out last week, but final exams wait for no man, even if there were amazing Overwatch games to cover. With those finals now totally (hopefully) passed, it’s time to take a look at this week’s matches!
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 day of the Contenders EU semi-finals is finally here. The first match started with the favorites British Hurricane against CIS Hope. Prior to the match, the British Hurricane have spent one week in Sweden in a boot camp. CIS Hope put up a fight in the first two maps, managing to take a map off their opponent. In the end, it was not enough and the British Hurricane could secure their spot in the finals with a solid 3-1.
It seemed that both teams have decided to prepare for a triple tank line-up as this dominated all maps played. Overall, a lot of different heroes have seen some playtime, so let’s dive into a quick recap for the different maps.
London Spitfire took on the Seoul Dynasty this past weekend to end Stage Three. Neither team had any hopes in the Stage Finals, but both teams are on track for the League Finals this summer. Here is how the match went.
The Shanghai Dragons are already on a 29 match losing streak, now the longest in pro sports to date. It will be a tough match against the London Spitfire, who currently seem on the up. The Shanghai Dragons have managed map wins against some of the top Overwatch League teams though, and have definitely improved since the roster overhaul. Will the London Spitfire lose a map or even the series against the Shanghai Dragons, or will the Shanghai Dragons make it a 30 match losing streak? Let’s find out. Read more …
Are we at the end of another stage again? Already? This is ridiculous!
I know the progression of time is linear and all that, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it these days, especially in the Overwatch League. Week after week, these games seem to fly by- but I suppose that’s why I’m here, right? To slow things down a bit, and show you all the best bits to keep an eye on as we hurtle through time and space. Well don’t worry! I’ve gone and done exactly that. Read on. Read more …
The first match for Saturday is an important one, as both teams are still fighting for a spot in the Playoffs. The London Spitfire have been rather passive in their last game against Los Angeles Gladiators, while the San Francisco Shock started getting better with their new additions to the roster.
