Overwatch League – Seoul Dynasty Force Map Five but Can’t Beat London Spitfire, While Dallas Fuel Stomps Philadelphia Fusion – S4W2D4

An exciting day for Dallas Fuel fans, a strong 3-1 win against one of the Stage 4 favorites, the Philadelphia Fusion. After the roster changes, the London Spitfire seem on the up, and defeated the Seoul Dynasty in a very close series, that went all the way.

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.
