The first day of S4W4 came to a close with a bang. Boston snuck by Seoul to get their first win, Shanghai continued their winless season (though they came the closest they’ve ever been to victory against the Florida Mayhem,) and the Houston Outlaws shocked the Fuel in a convincing 3-1 victory. Crazy stuff! Read more …
At their inception, the Dynasty were the favorites to with the inaugural season of the Overwatch League. Built upon legendary team Lunatic Hai with star power like Ryujehong, Tobi, and Zunba, they were expected to be the best. However, meta shifts and unfortunate losses led them to a bottom 3 finish in the first season. Looking to reclaim their glory, the Dynasty have signed “most handsome” main tank Fissure as well as numerous members of Contenders team Lucky Future Zenith. Will this be the start of their redemption arc?

Every week we will be publishing the OverwatchScore’s OWL Power Rankings. See where your favourite teams fall in our weekly list.
These rankings are highly fluid, not necessarily indicative of League positioning, and based on what I see during play. Like all Power Rankings, a team on a hot streak may find themselves higher than one with more wins, just as a team on a cold streak may be relegated lower on the list than their Table position would suggest. If you disagree, let me know. If you agree, well let me know too so we can laugh at those who don’t.
Overwatch League continued into week three of Stage Four. We are seeing more teams win quickly and pick up maps as the scores indicate a sprint to the finish to make the playoffs. Here is how the night went.
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. And even though the Shanghai Dragons looked good, no one expected them to win against the New York Excelsior.
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!
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.
