Team Summary

Previously competing as the Immortals, the Los Angeles Vlaiant are one of the twelve teams in the inaugural season for the Overwatch League. After a strong showing in Contenders Season 0, the Immortals took a step back and missed the playoffs in Season 1. They’ve since added more firepower to their roster and look to take the inaugural season of the Overwatch League by storm.

The Los Angeles Valiant have had quite a turbulent season, with some of the most drastic roster changes we have seen coming mid-season. Starting out, the Valiant had a favorable schedule by not having to play the NYXL in Stage 1. They were a solid middle-of-the-pack team, comfortably beating teams like Shock, Mayhem, and Dragons, but consistently fell short against the top teams in the league.

RogueBludger’s OWL Power Rankings

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 …
