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.

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.
Los Angeles Valiant had a chance at the Stage Three Finals. The Philadelphia Fusion came off of a fantastic run in Stage Two only to hit a wall in Stage Three. Here is how their match went last week.
Last week, the Shanghai Dragons go up against Philadelphia Fusion today, are we going to see more of the same from them? Or will the Dragons push take the Fusion to their fourth loss in a row? More than likely, we’ll see Philly break that streak and take the Dragons down again. What’s the point of watching then some people will ask? Well, just because one’s team fate is certain, doesn’t mean there won’t be good Overwatch. Now let’s see what the Overwatch Leagues got for us!
Are we at the end of another stage again? Already? This is ridiculous!
I know the progression of time is linear and all that, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it these days, especially in the Overwatch League. Week after week, these games seem to fly by- but I suppose that’s why I’m here, right? To slow things down a bit, and show you all the best bits to keep an eye on as we hurtle through time and space. Well don’t worry! I’ve gone and done exactly that. Read on. Read more …
With two weeks remaining in Stage 3, Seoul and Philadelphia find themselves in the playoff hunt. Sitting just on the cusp of entry, whichever team comes out on top this match would receive a huge boost in their chances. Would Seoul right the ship and get back to their Dynasty namesake? Did Philadelphia continue their inexplicable rise to the top of the league? Is Doa and Monte the best casting duo in the world? Lets answer some questions. Read more …
With the end of the stage approaching once again, teams are in a mad dash to secure their spot in the newly expanded 4-team playoff bracket. The Boston Uprising, NYXL and LA Valiant all seem like shoe-ins, but there’s still one more spot to consider.
Fourth place is now the most hotly contested spot in the Overwatch League, and the middle of the pack will need to step up in a big way to secure their place before playoffs come. San Francisco, Seoul, Philly, Houston, London, and the Gladiators are all within a couple maps of each other, so anyone could steal the last spot away by the time the week is through. That’s assuming we don’t see any upsets this week, either… I don’t know if I’d bet on that. Especially once you read this. Read more …
The Philadelphia Fusion and New York Excelsior both come into Thursday at 3-1. The Fusion were out for revenge after dropping the Stage Two Title Match to the Excelsior in a reverse sweep. After Boston’s 3-2 reverse sweep of London last match, this was the perfect fixture to finish the night.
