Week Three of OWL finally provided us with a bit of a clearer tier list amongst the teams with Vancouver and NYXL firmly at the top.
We’re close to halfway through the first Stage of the Overwatch League season and we still have no real idea who the best teams in the league are. Still the games have been great and that’s not going to change in Week 3.
Week Two in the Overwatch League saw a string of upsets offset by a return to form by London Spitfire.
The opening week of the Overwatch League 2019 season saw plenty of nail-biting games, surprise results and interesting team compositions, and with it, a whole lot of information on what to expect from teams for the rest of stage one.
If you don’t have time to catch every Week 1 match, here are the five you should try and tune in for.
We take a look at the OWL Pacific Division which has 7 different teams that could possibly make the playoffs in 2019
OWL S2 starts in just a few weeks so it’s time to preview the upcoming season and the 8 new teams. We start in the Atlantic Division where NYXL and London will dominate.
As we enter the last week of Stage Three there are still two spots open for Stage Three playoffs and plenty of teams that still have a shot to at least snag that brand new 4th seed.
As we near the home stretch of Stage Three we have an odd day of matches.
Ohhhh boy did Friday surprise us. Fusion looked awful against a suddenly mid-tier Shock team, we were too hopeful about the Dragons and Boston continues to dominate. Hopefully, we’re not as far off on Saturday.
London has been notoriously bad on Oasis this season, sporting a winning percentage of 17 percent heading into the Boston match so clearly there’s something almost mental about it at this point. But the loss to Boston was some next level insanity.
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?
