I got the chance to chat with Aaron “Bischu” Kim after their match against the Florida Mayhem in Week Five of Stage Three of the Overwatch League. Bischu is a remarkably likable guy, with great insight into his team’s performance, coping with the rigors of the Overwatch League and much more.
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.

As the Overwatch League Stage 3 Finals quickly approach both the Houston Outlaws and the Los Angeles Gladiators sit in 5th place with identical 4-3 records. A win will help propel them into the coveted 4th place slot while a loss would see their chances become that much slimmer of securing a Stage Playoff slot. All of this however was overshadowed by the competitive debut of one particular hero….
The Seoul Dynasty have had a less than stellar start to Stage 3. Currently sitting at 2-1, they were only 1 map away from dropping a match to the Dallas Fuel earlier in the week. Los Angeles Gladiators, on the other hand have to feel pretty good about themselves at the moment, also sitting at 2-1 but currently with the advantage in maps over Seoul. This match could very much be a precursor to who may be able to make the playoffs between these two teams later in the Stage/Season. Read more …
Overwatch League Stage 3, Week 2 began as the fresh faced Shanghai Dragons took on a Gladiators squad weakened by injury, as their Korean Tank Fissure was out sick. Surefour and his rotating DPS mates would need to step it up to make up for the loss of their prolific Tank. Read more …
