OWL Week 5 Results and Stage 1 Playoffs

Boston, after having an amazing set against Philly, failed to beat Houston (in, IMO the best set of high level Overwatch we have seen) too secure their playoff spot. After having a rough start, Dallas managed to win a game in a dominate fashion. If…

(Edited) Developing Story From The Overwatch League That You Can't Miss

Last Sunday I report that Geguri has been signed to an OWL team. It took 48 hours for this news to change drastically. 

Where it started was a reddit post, saying that during a live stream. Geguri commented that she was picked up by "a foreign team" and gave no other information on it. The rumors started flying on what team picked her up. Names like Dallas and Boston were flying around, as she has ties to both of those teams in one way or another. 

The next day it was…

OWL Week 4 Results An Standings

Not a super big week in terms of upsets but, a lot did happen. First off, this was the week of sweeps. Out of the 12 games total played this week, 8 of them were 4-0's (which lead to the new meme "4-0verwatch"). So nothing exciting at all. The Dragons once again lost all of their matches and are…
