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.
NEW LOOK, SAME GREAT TASTE
Watch Out! is back and better than ever! Stage 2 was great, but we might be staring down the barrel of the best stage yet. Teams are getting it together just in time to make a mad dash for the playoffs, and western teams are rapidly approaching the levels necessary to challenge the top dogs in the league. Philly is already there. If any other teams want to entertain a shot at the playoffs, they’ll need to get started right here, in week 1 of stage 3. Who has what it takes?
On the rebound from an extremely close match against the Seoul Dynasty, the Dallas Fuel look to pull an upset against the London Spitfire. Recent lineup adjustments and compositions are prevalent in the Fuel roster, and with playoff implications on the line, who will come out on top? Find out below for the full scoop! Read more …
In Friday’s final game, the London Spitfire took on the fresh-faced Shanghai Dragons. London came into the match searching for their second stage playoff appearance in as many stages and a chance at their second stage championship; while the Dragons entered looking for not only their first win of Stage 2, but their first win in the Overwatch League. If the Spitfire triumph over the Dragons knock Seoul Dynasty from the (current) final spot in the playoffs with another game to play, but if they win 4-0 they would leapfrog both Seoul and Philadelphia to clinch a playoff spot, again, with one more game to play while the Dynasty can only watch how the chips fall tomorrow. While a win will clinch them a spot, 4-0 will clinch them at least 2nd and a chance at taking 1st from the NYXL. The LA Gladiators still have an opportunity tomorrow to play spoiler to the Fusion, and even jump the Spitfire, but wouldn’t be able to knock London from a title match berth as long as London wins. Shanghai…well, maybe their new lineup can secure win #1 by taking down the Stage 1 champions (probably not).
For Saturday’s first match, we are rewarded with a colossal matchup. The Seoul Dynasty vs the London Spitfire.

The San Francisco Shock are surging of late and they come up against the London Spitfire, who are fresh off a loss against the Los Angeles Gladiators in Week 3. Danteh and Babybay will be looking to put on a showing to management that says they deserve their spots in the starting roster despite recently signing Architect and Moth as well as Sinatraa turning 18. London will be looking to bounce back after a hard loss to a team led by Fissure, whom they traded away.
London Spitfire continue their strong streak in Stage two as the Los Angeles Gladiators pushed for a victory in tonight’s opening match.
The first matchup Friday night sees the London Spitfire taking on the Boston Uprising.
