The LA Gladiators Will Keep their Shields Up for Stage 4- Overwatch League Predictions with Nina “Missie” Schneider

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.

Overwatch League – Philadelphia Fusion vs Shanghai Dragons – S3W4

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?

Watch Out (S3W5): The Houston Outlaws are Pushing for a Playoff Spot, but so is Everyone Else!

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 …

Watch Out (S3W4): The Boston Uprising Seek Perfection as the Fusion Fight for Fourth

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 …
