Thursday was maybe one of the best days of matches from the entire season. It wasn’t the three straight map 5s that we had last Saturday, but two reverse sweeps and an unreal Oasis between London and Boston made it incredibly exciting. With three of those teams tasked with playing again today we’ll see if they can keep it up.
After a bit of a lackluster Wednesday, we have some heavy hitters on deck for Thursday.
As we start Week Three, the playoff race has begun to take shape.
Friday gave us three incredible matches and yet another big upset as something might be seriously wrong with the Seoul Dynasty.
After a huge upset and another incredible Philadelphia vs. Houston match, Friday promises another couple high quality matches and possibly a Dragons win?
On Wednesday we saw two 4-0 games and a surprisingly close game between Seoul and Dallas that went to a fifth map, Thursday will probably look similar.
Week One was full of a whole lot of surprises, as we head into Week Two look for the race for the Stage playoffs to become a bit more clear.
After a week of games, it’s still hard to completely get a handle on where most Overwatch League teams stand in Stage Three.
After a tumultuous first two days in OWL, Friday saw all three favorites win their matches in fairly dominant fashion. On Saturday we’ve got three matches that are close to toss-ups.
On Friday we have the three winners from Wednesday taking on the three losers and because we haven’t learned our lessons yet, 5 of today’s 6 picks are the favorites.
The first day of Stage Three was full of surprises.
After Wednesday surprised all of us, there should a bit more stability on Thursday.
As Stage Three gets underway on Wednesday we’ll have the chance to see three different teams try to integrate new players on the fly as well as if Seoul can return to dominance after a rough end to Stage Two.
There was a time not that long ago where the best non-Korean team in the Overwatch League was the Los Angeles Valiant.
In the current state of Overwatch League there are 144 roster spots available. As the player signing/transfer window closes on Tuesday 126 of those 144 spots are currently filled. Only two teams, Houston and Philadelphia currently house the max 12 players on their roster.
Stage Three of the Overwatch League will finally get underway on Wednesday and that means it’s time to make some predictions as to how the next five weeks of matches will play out.
