Team Summary

In the first season of the Overwatch League, the Los Angeles Valiant racked up a stage win, a 4th place finish, and thousands of dedicated LA fans. A solid base of former Immortals players led them to have a consistently successful season. Mid-season pickups, such as offtank Space and former Fuel shotcaller Custa, allowed them to get ahead of the pack in the latter half of the season. With new expansion teams to contend with, they’re looking to stay ahead in Season 2.

RogueBludger’s OWL Power Rankings

These rankings are highly fluid, not necessarily indicative of League positioning, and based on what I see during play.
