Every Sunday Overwatch League Co-Founders Taco & Mash host a roundup of the latest and greatest of the week’s storylines. We partnered with the great folks over at eStarz to produce what we think is a super enjoyable show. This week we covered topics spanning the Houston Outlaws issue’s fielding an impactful Tracer player, how good the Los Angeles Gladiators have suddenly gotten, who’s been hiding in the Philadelphia Fusion’s tree house, and much more!
Originally expected to be largely composed of Players from Miraculous Youngsters the all Chinese team forming the Shanghai Dragons has been surprising. China has done well in the Overwatch World Cup, and their fans have high expectations for their Overwatch League team.

Philadelphia Fusion vs the Shanghai Dragons in week 4 of stage 2 in the Overwatch League. The Dragons continue to fight against the heavy contenders in the league, taking a map here and there. Will this match be the one where they finally make progress? Or will the Fusion use these Dragons as just another stepping stone on their return to the top?
Looking for their first ever Overwatch League victory, the Shanghai Dragons do battle with the struggling Boston Uprising. Will the Dragons topple their opponents? Or will Boston rise up and teach Shanghai a lesson?
The Shangai Dragons have announced on Twitter that their Head Coach Chen “U4” Congshan will be stepping down from that role with the team. Current Assistant Coach Sun Jun “Kong” Young will act as interim Head Coach while the Dragons begin to look for another coach.
The last game of week 2 is another Battle at the Bottom. Both the Shanghai Dragons and the San Francisco Shock are 0-3 in Stage 2 and each would like to keep from joining the Florida Mayhem with a 0-4 record at the end of week 2. The Dragons are especially hungry for a win as their league standing is currently 0-13 and are hoping that tonight will be their first win. The Shock is desperately trying to avoid becoming the team that lost to Shanghai.
Los Angeles Gladiators face off against the Shanghai Dragons in Week 2 of Stage 2. The Dragons have a pretty poor record from Stage 1, and with their new players, might have a chance of bringing that around. While Gladiators hold their shields as strong as ever, hoping to make their way up in the ranks, there’s a real chance for the Dragons to turn their luck around with fresh blood leading the squad.
The Shanghai Dragons take on the Los Angeles Valiant in hopes to not only cause an upset, but to snatch their first win. Will there be another impressive performance by Diya, or will Agilities and company be able to shut him down? Either way, both teams are determined to prove themselves that they are true contenders. To see who became victorious, look below!
