Posted 6th June 2018 By: Derpina    157 Views
Esports news – The Overwatch League is nearing its end, and with it comes the first-ever OWL champion. Now that Week 3 is all wrapped up for Stage 4, let us take a look back at all the recently-played games. Take note of the who displayed made remarkable team fights and the ones who failed to conquer their opponents.
London Spitfire vs Dallas Fuel
The first match of Week 3 was between London and America’s representatives: London Spitfire and Dallas Fuel. It was one of the quickest match of the entire OWL season as Dallas proved that they are too much for Spitfire to control, despite Spitfire’s second place ranking in the OWL standings.
The first map, Blizzard World, already had Spitfire in quicksand. They struggled to secure the first point when Dallas claimed the required capture percentage needed to gain an edge. Dallas then continuously dominated the game on the second and third maps until Spitfire emerged victorious on Map 4. The match went to overtime, but Dallas managed to control the entire game.
New York Excelsior vs Los Angeles Valiant
New York Excelsior is always a favorite. Whichever team comes their way is automatically considered as the underdog. In this scenario, Los Angeles Valiant was at the receiving end of New York Excelsior’s wrath, and their bad track record since the start of the series didn’t help their standings at all. But what happened next shocked everyone as the Valiant prevailed against the favored team and turned the tables upside down.
The first map is once again Blizzard World. The Valiant lost the first and third map, but they pulled themselves together for a comeback on the second and fourth map. The final showdown in the fifth round saw Valiant take down the season’s favorite, instantly climbing up the standings.
Florida Mayhem vs Houston Outlaws
The most excruciating match in Week 3 happened between Florida Mayhem and the Houston Outlaws. Both played with each other’s strengths and weaknesses in the most intense manner. The first two maps in the series went well and ended quickly, but the third map, Oasis, gave Houston an edge against Florida.
The final map played saved the best for last—the greatest performance out of the OWL season to date, according to many. The match was at a deadlock and Houston surprisingly advanced the cart on their second push all the way to the end of the course, despite the game going to overtime. This move might have cost Houston the entire game, but Florida’s inability to counter the opposing team’s attacks proved otherwise.
