What a stage it’s been so far, huh? I kinda (and by kinda I mean definitely) regret missing Watch Out last week, but final exams wait for no man, even if there were amazing Overwatch games to cover. With those finals now totally (hopefully) passed, it’s time to take a look at this week’s matches!
Previously competing as Lunatic Hai the Seoul Dynasty are one of the twelve teams in the inaugural season for the Overwatch League. Having found huge success in Korea and being considered the top team in the world for some time, the Dynasty now face a competitive landscape with a lot more competition. Will they be able to topple London, New York, Dallas, and the rest of the Overwatch League in season one?

As Stage 4 of the Overwatch League kicked off the teams have both the Stage Finals and the Inaugural Season Playoffs on their minds and in sight. While the path to the playoffs is easy for the very top teams of the New York Excelsior and Boston Uprising, the teams in the middle are all very much in contention and gunning to lock their own places in history. The new stage means a new patch and this time it includes the long anticipated availability and Overwatch League debut of Brigitte Lindholm.
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.
With a lot to prove and a lot to lose, the Houston Outlaws came into their last match of stage three with an axe to grind. Their last meeting with the Seoul Dynasty in S2W5 was an impressive showing. A 3-1 victory over the Korean juggernaut showed the first signs of a slipping Seoul, and a shining opportunity for the Outlaws to push forward into stage three on a high note. Six weeks and a so-so stage later, the Outlaws were the guinea pigs for the Dynasty’s newest, and oddly most efficient, roster experiment. Read more …
London Spitfire took on the Seoul Dynasty this past weekend to end Stage Three. Neither team had any hopes in the Stage Finals, but both teams are on track for the League Finals this summer. Here is how the match went.
Former Kabam executives Kevin Chou and Kent Wakeford formed KSV and entered the eSports scene with a bang, most notably with the purchase of the Seoul spot in the Overwatch League. After spending time working on the necessary branding and setup for their Overwatch League team, the group turned their attention to their parent brand, and what they want that brand to represent. They have now publicly released the fruits of that work with their new brand Generation Gaming, or Gen.G.
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 …
