In a tweet from the L.A. Gladiators they are replacing Fissure, their top tank with iRemiix in their starting line up. Here are the details.
With strong play and dedicated local fans, the Los Angeles Gladiators swung their way to a top 6 finish in the first season of the Overwatch League. With a multinational, multilingual roster that oozed charisma and talent, the Gladiators gained, if nothing, fans across the world. With top-tier Finnish support line Shaz and Biggoose, coupled with Surefour and Hydration’s devastating DPS, they gave a consistently great performance across the first season. New additions to the team include former KongDoo Panthera players Void and Decay, who may make the Gladiators a top team in the second season.

When the Overwatch League began I remember watching a few Los Angeles Gladiators matches and thinking to myself “Man, this team seems to have a lot of good pieces but something seems to be missing with their main tank play.” In Stage 1 the Gladiators had a few shining moments but were a very middle of the pack team. They finished 8th with a few good wins under their belt but they weren’t able to make much of an impact. However, things changed throughout the season and now they are looking at the playoffs.
The final weekend of Stage 4 saw a lot of intense matches and a lot of changes to the teams gunning for playoff hopes. We are now set and have our final six teams ready. However, Stage 4 showed a lot of promise on what this league could be in the future. With teams coming back like the Dallas Fuel, and the L.A. Valiant topping NYXL in the last match.
The final week of Stage 4 began tonight leading into the finals as well as the Grand Final playoffs. Here is how the matches played out on Wednesday night!
These rankings are highly fluid, not necessarily indicative of League positioning, and based on what I see during play. Like all Power Rankings, a team on a hot streak may find themselves higher than one with more wins, just as a team on a cold streak may be relegated lower on the list than their Table position would suggest. If you disagree, let me know. If you agree, well let me know too so we can laugh at those who don’t. Read more …
