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.
Overwatch League reports yesterday pointed to a new team being added in Season Two for the city of Berlin, Germany. This comes as no surprise with Activision Blizzard planning out a potential travel policy for teams throughout Season Three. Here are some thoughts on the announcements.
I had the craziest dream last week! I was watching an OWL game, as I often do. The Dallas Fuel were playing Philly, and I said to myself, “Ah man, the Fuel are gonna get crushed and I’m gonna be really sad.”
But then, something crazy happened. Read more …
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.
Today’s matches are absolutely stacked with almost every team jostling for playoff positioning, NYXL and SF Shock excluded. Find out how the day’s matches went below! Read more …
Day One of Week Two in this fourth and final Stage of the OWL’s inaugural season was a doozie. The surprises continue, as the Brigitte meta seems to be turning the OWL on its head. Dallas improved to 2-1, giving themselves their first over .500 stage record of the season. Los Angeles Valiant took down the Florida Mayhem to improve their lead over the Seoul Dynasty in the Pacific Division. To finish the night Los Angeles’s other team the Gladiators took down the Houston Outlaws, improving their playoff chances.
The second episode of OWL Things Considered is out and following on the heels of the first episode which featured DPei, this week the show’s guest is Josh “Sideshow” Wilkinson. A long interview, Sideshow covers his background, being an Overwatch League Analyst, and the state of content creation in Overwatch.
As Stage 4 of the Overwatch League began, there was plenty of clamor about the introduction of Overwatch’s newest hero into the OWL servers, Brigette. Brigette is an armor-centric support hero who wields a mace and shield for individual defense. She excels in shutting down “dive heroes” such as Tracer, Genji, Winston and D.Va by stunning and shield bashing them out of position and providing repair packs to her team. Let’s take a look at how she performed in her first week on stage!
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!
