Watch Out!: Stage 3, Week 1

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.

Overwatch League – Shanghai Dragons vs London Spitfire – S2W5

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).
