Day One of Week Two in this fourth and final Stage of the OWL’s inaugural season was a doozie. The surprises continue, as the Brigitte meta seems to be turning the OWL on its head. Dallas improved to 2-1, giving themselves their first over .500 stage record of the season. Los Angeles Valiant took down the Florida Mayhem to improve their lead over the Seoul Dynasty in the Pacific Division. To finish the night Los Angeles’s other team the Gladiators took down the Houston Outlaws, improving their playoff chances.
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.

What a stage it’s been so far, huh? I kinda (and by kinda I mean definitely) regret missing Watch Out last week, but final exams wait for no man, even if there were amazing Overwatch games to cover. With those finals now totally (hopefully) passed, it’s time to take a look at this week’s matches!
Week One of Stage Four came to a close with a bang. Philadelphia cemented themselves in the playoff conversation, Shanghai continued their winless season (extended their record of worst streak in all of esports), and the NYXL stayed atop the table with a convincing victory over those rivals from across the pond the London Spitfire.

As Stage 4 of the Overwatch League kicked off the teams have both the Stage Finals and the Inaugural Season Playoffs on their minds and in sight. While the path to the playoffs is easy for the very top teams of the New York Excelsior and Boston Uprising, the teams in the middle are all very much in contention and gunning to lock their own places in history. The new stage means a new patch and this time it includes the long anticipated availability and Overwatch League debut of Brigitte Lindholm.
Stage 4 is starting today, which means it’s time for new predictions! It feels like with every stage it gets harder and harder to predict which teams will find their way to the top of the leaderboard. Some teams are improving, some are in a slump. With a new patch, and most likely a completely new meta, we could see a lot of changes.
