The Shanghai Dragons have announced on Twitter that they are hiring for five new positions in what appears to be a major shake-up for the struggling team.
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.

The final weekend of Stage 4 saw a lot of intense matches and a lot of changes to the teams gunning for playoff hopes. We are now set and have our final six teams ready. However, Stage 4 showed a lot of promise on what this league could be in the future. With teams coming back like the Dallas Fuel, and the L.A. Valiant topping NYXL in the last match.
The final week of Stage 4 began tonight leading into the finals as well as the Grand Final playoffs. Here is how the matches played out on Wednesday night!
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.

The first day of S4W4 came to a close with a bang.

An exciting day for Dallas Fuel fans, a strong 3-1 win against one of the Stage 4 favorites, the Philadelphia Fusion.

And even though the Shanghai Dragons looked good, no one expected them to win against the New York Excelsior.
Week One of Stage Four came to a close with a bang. Philadelphia cemented themselves in the playoff conversation, Shanghai continued their winless season (extended their record of worst streak in all of esports), and the NYXL stayed atop the table with a convincing victory over those rivals from across the pond the London Spitfire.
