London Spitfire have risen to the top again after a mid-year slump. Los Angeles Valiant have come up from a tricky early season to be one of the most dangerous teams in the league. How will the match tomorrow night play out?


This match will come down to one simple equation, can the Valiant hold off London’s straight forward attack? London has one of the smallest rosters in the league with only seven players. We all know them and know what they are best at, winning in the key moments. As good as the Gladiators had gotten all season in the end they could not stop London from advancing. It starts with Gesture and Fury on tanks. Their Winston and play set up the shield in this Voltron of destruction. They are the rock which the rest of the team forms around and roles out countless little victories. The Overwatch world has grown to know Profit and Birdring as if they were household names. They have become one of the deadliest duos in the league. Profit has switched his play a lot to other heroes lately to adapt the new meta, but will it be enough? Finally, what is a team without support? Can Bdosin and Closer make the difference? Will we see NUS come in on different maps for London? Well, the team is a solid silver bullet. Can they win.

The Valiant history is much more mixed. Changing up their roster in the middle of the season, they support a twelve man squad with a lot of options. Custa really has taken on the leadership role and supported the team to victory. How the Valiant use the rest of their roster will be very interesting to watch. This could make the difference in the match. Kariv seems to be the other support choice for sure. Fate also appears to be a lock for main tank. Then it comes down to how the DPS will play out. The Valiant have a ton of options here. Bunny, KSF, Soon, and Agilities have all played well this season. No one can really put together a starting roster until tomorrow night on how this DPS line up will work. This is the Valiant’s true advantage of having a full roster to mix it up a bit.


Overall, this could be the match of the playoffs. It should hold the most exciting rounds and we will have to see how it goes.
