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.
The champions return for Season Two. After winning the Season One Championship at the sold-out Barclays Center, the London Spitfire are ready to go again. Known for having a stellar tank line and terrifying DPS in birdring and Profit, this is a class-A roster looking for more success. London Spitfire is built around a mix of players from GC Busan and KongDoo Panthera, formerly playing as Cloud9.

The first match of the Saturday starts with the London Spitfire vs Los Angeles Valiant. Having lost four of their fives matches for Stage 3 so far, the London Spitfire need to show up strong against a dominating Los Angeles Valiant – currently undefeated in Stage 3. The only time these two teams met was in Stage 1, Week 2, the London Spitfire beating the Los Angeles Valiant with 3-2.
This weekend the Overwatch League finished the second week of Stage 3. The Los Angeles Valiant (#VALLA) won their 3rd and 4th matches of the stage to remain undefeated. Boston Uprising won a couple high profile matches to improve to 4-0 as well. 3 of the top 4 teams in the new Stage Playoff format are currently Western rosters, while the full-Korean rosters (NYXL, Seoul Dynasty, and London Spitfire) went a combined 3-3 on the week.

In Week 2 of Stage 3, London Spitfire squares up against Florida Mayhem. Last stage, Florida showed they have the capacity to play with some of the midrange contenders and there’s no stopping that train now. London took a hit to their pride at the end of stage 2 with the loss to Philadelphia in the finals, and even further in their two losses in week 1. Both teams are looking for a win to prove they’re still in the running, but who is going to walk away with it? Read more …
Well, it’s been a busy week for the Overwatch League. Last week’s games surprised just about everybody- that Valiant 4-0 against the Dynasty? Or Boston’s, against the apparently-struggling Outlaws? It looks like teams are getting a fresh start this stage, and that means big changes are on the horizon. It couldn’t come at a better time for some teams- or at a worse time, for others. Read more …
This heavyweight slug-fest always means good Overwatch. But who will win this top-tier bout? New York’s consistency has been unmatched- except against the Spitfire. Will London be able to pull off another upset? Will it even count as an upset at that point?
Monte and Doa have to be one of the premier casting duo’s in esports as it is. That aside, Houston has beaten London in all their matchups during the regular season, but London seems to always remain the favourites. Will the Outlaws continue their winning ways against the Korean roster, or will the Spitfire repeat their postseason luck against the Green Wall.
