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 …
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?

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 …
With two weeks remaining in Stage 3, Seoul and Philadelphia find themselves in the playoff hunt. Sitting just on the cusp of entry, whichever team comes out on top this match would receive a huge boost in their chances. Would Seoul right the ship and get back to their Dynasty namesake? Did Philadelphia continue their inexplicable rise to the top of the league? Is Doa and Monte the best casting duo in the world? Lets answer some questions. Read more …
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 …
The Boston Uprising have defeated two of the top three teams in the Overwatch League in its lossless performance in Stage 3. Will Boston be able to topple a less than dominant Seoul Dynasty? Or will Seoul end the Uprising’s rise to the top? The marquee match of the night will answer those questions in Stage 3 Week 3. Read more …
Seoul’s Stage 3 has been far from stellar thus far. The cherry on top of that unfortunate sundae would be a loss to the slightly improving Shanghai Dragons. Shanghai was 0-24 coming into the match, and it’s unlikely that first win should come today.
This weekend the Overwatch League finished the second week of Stage 3. The Los Angeles Valiant (#VALLA) won their 3rd and 4th matches of the stage to remain undefeated. Boston Uprising won a couple high profile matches to improve to 4-0 as well. 3 of the top 4 teams in the new Stage Playoff format are currently Western rosters, while the full-Korean rosters (NYXL, Seoul Dynasty, and London Spitfire) went a combined 3-3 on the week.
