Los Angeles Gladiators are definitely the team with the best chances to get this number one spot in Stage 4. After winning 3-1 vs. the San Francisco Shock on Wednesday, they continued to dominate the series against the Dallas Fuel.
The San Francisco Shock are one of the twelve inaugural Overwatch League teams. Owned by NRG, they’ve been one of the first teams focused on connecting with and supporting their community. They signed USA star sinatraa early and built the rest of their team around him.

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.
The San Francisco Shock managed to beat the Houston Outlaws earlier this week and are definitely on the up. Not able to reach the Stage 3 Playoffs anymore, they can still work on joining the Season Playoffs, therefore every map win counts.
With both teams’ playoff hopes (and the hopes of a few other teams besides) on the line, the Houston Outlaws and San Francisco Shock simply could not afford to give their enemy an inch. The resulting match was an intense, if not flawed, affair. Read on and find out what made the game so crazy!
The first match for Saturday is an important one, as both teams are still fighting for a spot in the Playoffs. The London Spitfire have been rather passive in their last game against Los Angeles Gladiators, while the San Francisco Shock started getting better with their new additions to the roster.
