Stage 2 has brought about more clear divisions than last stage, a stage in which teams were all over the place and most finished within one game of .500.

The first two weeks of this stage, however, seem to suggest that Stage 2 will end with more teams clearly at the top, more teams clearly at the bottom and fewer teams jockeying for spots within the middle.

While that shouldn't be surprising considering the major patch change made before the start of Stage 2, GOATs composition variants are still the most popular in the game. With that in mind, one would expect Stage 1's trends to continue.

However, that's not a problem. Parity is fun to watch but can be difficult to follow. More importantly, parity makes it hard to rank.

So far, ranking the teams in Stage 2 has been a much easier task than it was in Stage 1; this week's OWL power rankings included.

1. (-) Vancouver Titans (10-0)

As said in the introduction, GOATs compositions are still the favorites of Overwatch League teams and the Vancouver Titans Vancouver Titans OWL Rank #16 Roolf Randal Stark flex support KSAA Alhumaidi Alruwaili off tank Tsuna Samir Ikram dps Dalton Dalton Bennyhoff dps sHockWave dps ShRedLock Abtin Shirvani tank CarCar Carson First support happen to be the best GOATs team in the world. The Titans should have another good stage to put them in a great position by the season's halfway point.

2. (-) San Francisco Shock (7-3)

The San Francisco Shock San Francisco Shock OWL Rank #1 ChoiHyoBin Choi Hyo-Bin (최효빈) off tank Viol2t Park Min-ki flex support Rascal Kim Dong-jun (김동준) dps Striker Kwon Nam-joo (권남주) dps smurf Yoo Myeong-Hwan tank Moth Grant Espe support are the only team in the league to have won every map so far in Stage 2. Their opponents haven't been particularly hard -- they've played the (then) winless Valiant once and the free-falling Charge twice -- but it's an accomplishment nonetheless.

3. (-) New York Excelsior (11-0)

The New York Excelsior New York Excelsior OWL Rank #3 JJoNak Bang Sung-hyeon (방성현) flex support HOTBA Choi Hong-joon off tank Libero Kim Hye-sung (김혜성) dps Saebyeolbe Park Jong Ryeol dps Mano Kim Dong-gyu (김동규) tank ANAMO Jeong Tae-seong (정태성) support have also yet to lose a map in Stage 2, although they did end one map with the Dragons in a draw. This week, the Excelsior swept two of the league's worst teams in the Justice and Mayhem. They took the opportunity to finally give Fl0w3R some playing time -- marking his first appearance on the OWL stage.

4. (-) Los Angeles Gladiators (7-4)

Now on a six match winning streak, the Los Angeles Gladiators Los Angeles Gladiators OWL Rank #10 Shaz Jonas Suovaara flex support SPACE Indy Halpern off tank birdring Kim Ji-hyuk (김지혁) dps MirroR Chris Trịnh dps OGE Son Min-seok (손민석) tank BigGoose Benjamin Isohanni support have looked clearly better than most other teams in the league. However, they haven't been as dominant as the league's top three teams. If these rankings were divided by tiers, the Gladiators would likely be in their own tier below the Titans, Shock and Excelsior but a tier above everyone else.

5. (+5) Dallas Fuel (6-3)

The Dallas Fuel Dallas Fuel OWL Rank #15 NotE Lucas Meissner off tank Crimzo William Hernandez flex support Decay Jang Gui-un (장귀운) dps Doha Kim Dong-Ha (김동하) dps Gamsu Noh Yeong-jin (노영진) tank Closer Jung Won-sik (정원식) support looked pretty good in their first week playing alongside NotE . The team is looking much different from how they looked at the beginning of the season, however they have had a history of looking up and down. The Fuel will have to keep their momentum going in harder matchups this week against the Titans and Dynasty.

6. (+5) London Spitfire (6-4)

The London Spitfire London Spitfire OWL Rank #14 BERNAR Shin Se-won (신세원) off tank Highly Lee Sung-hyeok (이성혁) flex support Glister Lim Gil-seong (임길성) dps Although Jung Hyun-wook dps JMac Choi Dae-han (최대한) tank SanGuiNar Lym Kyu-min support haven't had any particularly difficult opponents in this stage thus far and it's unlikely that will really change at any point this stage. Both the Boston Uprising and the Chengdu Hunters appear to be positioning themselves for qualification into the stage playoffs, but it's likely both teams will be seeded in the lower half of the playoffs bracket. Unless the Spitfire fall apart, they should be able to coast into the Stage 2 playoffs pretty comfortably.

7. (-) Seoul Dynasty (4-5)

It's hard to justify penalizing any team for a loss to the Titans. Unfortunately for the Dynasty, last week wasn't the last time they play the Titans this stage. They play them a second time in Stage 2's final week.

8. (-3) Boston Uprising (6-4)

The game five magic for the Boston Uprising Boston Uprising OWL Rank #20 Myunbong Seo Sang-min (서상민) flex support punk Leyton Gilchrist off tank Colourhex Kelsey Birse dps Jerry Min Tae-Hui (민태희) dps Fusions Cameron Bosworth tank mikeyy Michael Konicki tank Halo Kobe Hamand support ran out last week with a loss to the Spark. While the Uprising have proven to be a good team thus far, they need to start winning matches before map five again -- otherwise matches like the one with the Spark may start to become more common.

9. (-) Philadelphia Fusion (7-4)

After a 2-2 start to Stage 2, the Philadelphia Fusion Philadelphia Fusion OWL Rank #4 Fury Kim Jun-ho (김준호) off tank Alarm Kim Kyeong-bo (김경보) flex support Carpe Lee Jae-hyeok (이재혁) dps Ivy Lee Seung-Hyun dps SADO Kim Su-Min (뜨용) tank FunnyAstro Daniel Hathaway support now need an upset over the Excelsior or the Shock to finish the stage with a winning record (assuming they beat the Outlaws). Even if they fail to do so and end Stage 2 3-4, they will at least be over .500 on the season with an 8-6 record.

10. (-2) Chengdu Hunters (5-5)

The hype train for the Chengdu Hunters Chengdu Hunters OWL Rank #13 Elsa Luo Wenjie (罗文杰) off tank Molly He Chengzhi (何诚智) flex support Jinmu Yi Hu (易虎) dps Leave Huang Xin (黄馨) dps Ameng Ding Menghan (丁蒙涵) tank Yveltal Li Xianyao (李先曜) support should be slowing its pace somewhat after a loss to the Dragons. They have a tough task in trying to recover this week against a strong Gladiators squad.

11. (-5) Toronto Defiant (6-5)

The Toronto Defiant Toronto Defiant OWL Rank #18 KariV Park Young-seo (박영서) flex support Nevix Andreas Karlsson off tank Agilities Brady Girardi dps Surefour Lane Roberts dps zYKK Thomas Hosono dps Beast Adam Denton tank Kruise Harrison Pond support have now lost the last three matches, each consecutive one by a worse margin, after starting 6-3. Their schedule doesn't get any easier this stage as their next two matches are against the Shock and the Titans.

12. (+1) Shanghai Dragons (4-6)

The Shanghai Dragons Shanghai Dragons OWL Rank #2 Izayaki Kim Min-chul (김민철) flex support Void Kang Jun-woo (강준우) off tank Fleta Kim Byung-sun (김병선) dps LIP Lee Jae-won (이재원) dps Stand1 Seo Ji-Won (서지원) tank LeeJaeGon Lee Jae-gon (이재곤) support should be able to build some momentum off their victory over the Hunters: their next three matches are against the Mayhem, Outlaws and Justice.

13. (+3) Hangzhou Spark (4-5)

Krystal finally made his Hangzhou Spark Hangzhou Spark OWL Rank #9 Ria Park Seong-wook (박성욱) off tank BeBe Yoon Hui-Chang (윤희창) flex support Adora Kang Jae-Hwan (강재환) dps GodsB Kim Kyeon-Bo (김경보) dps Architect Park Min-ho (박민호) dps guxue Xu Qiulin (徐秋林) tank iDK Park Ho-jin (박호진) support debut and he looked fantastic. He, guxue and iDK look far better than the rest of the team. They could make for a solid core to build around in the future, but for right now appear to be carrying the load on an otherwise unformidable team.

14. (-) Paris Eternal (5-6)

The Paris Eternal Paris Eternal OWL Rank #12 hanbin Choi Han-bin (최한빈) off tank Fielder Kwon Joon (권준) flex support SoOn Terence Tarlier dps BenBest Benjamin Dieulafait tank NiCOgdh Nicolas Moret flex FDGoD Brice Monscavoir support are 2-2 in Stage 2, but both wins have been to teams that have been extremely weak out of Stage 2's gate. They look better than they did at the end of Stage 1, but they don't look great either.

15. (+2) Houston Outlaws (3-5)

The Houston Outlaws Houston Outlaws OWL Rank #17 MekO Kim Tae Hong off tank rapel Kim Jun-geun (김준근) flex support Danteh Dante Cruz dps blasé Jeffrey Tsang dps Muma Austin Wilmot tank Jecse Lee Seong-soo (이승수) support looked really good on their first map against the Titans and even looked good at other points throughout the series -- most of the time when they integrated DPS into their lineup. There were plenty of arguments for and against the Outlaws' decision to repeatedly try their hand at matching the Titans' GOATs compositions, but none were as informed as the debate between Sideshow and clockwork. Lost in all of the debate around the Outlaws' composition choices was the nice injection of ArHaN . He has seen little playtime since being added to the Outlaws last year and he looked pretty solid. It would be nice to see some more ArHan playtime.

16. (+2) Los Angeles Valiant (1-9)

The Los Angeles Valiant Los Angeles Valiant OWL Rank #8 McGravy Caleb McGarvey off tank Lastro Moon Jung-won (문정원) flex support Shax Johannes Nielsen dps ksp Kai Collins dps Dreamer Song Sang-lok tank RAin Park Jae-ho (박재호) support finally have one in the win column! However, the Valiant still look like one of the weakest teams in the league. They play the Washington Justice this week, meaning there is an opportunity for them to get a second win.

17. (-5) Atlanta Reign (5-6)

The team that lost to the Valiant? The Atlanta Reign Atlanta Reign OWL Rank #11 Dogman Dusttin Bowerman flex support frd Nathan Goebel off tank BABYBAY Andrej Francisty dps Edison Kim Tae-hoon (김태훈) dps Gator Blake Scott tank Masaa Petja Kantanen support . They are now 2-5 in their last five regular season matches, beating only the Outlaws and the Justice. Their stretch of defeats began before Daco went to the bench and Dafran retired, so their absences aren't entirely to blame. The team as a whole just looks bad.

18. (-3) Guangzhou Charge (3-8)

Charge record past five matches

19. (-) Washington Justice (1-10)

The Washington Justice Washington Justice OWL Rank #19 AimGod Min-seok Kwon flex support JJANU Choi Hyeon-woo (최현우) off tank TTuba Lee Ho-sung (이호성) dps Stitch Lee Chung-hee (이충희) dps rOar Gye Chang-hoon tank ArK Hong Yeon-joon support are still one of the worst teams in the league, but they do look better whenever Corey is on Widowmaker. In fact, the Justice are a fun to team to watch when they play DPS compositions. They're unlikely to pull off many upsets even with those compositions, but at least they can put on a show.

20. (-) Florida Mayhem (1-10)

Last week went more smoothly for the Florida Mayhem Florida Mayhem OWL Rank #6 Gargoyle Lee Beom-jun (이범준) off tank GangNamJin Gang Nam-jin (강남진) flex support BQB Lee Sang-bum (이상범) dps Yaki Kim Jun-gi (김준기) dps Karayan Choi San-ha (최산하) tank Kris Choi Jun-soo (최준수) support than the week before. They were only getting destroyed by the opposing teams on stage rather than getting destroyed on stage and by the public on social media.

Weekly Wrap-up

Rapidly approaching is the first homestand in the history of the Overwatch League as the Dallas Fuel are set to host matches on April 27 and 28.

Anyone who wants to watch the Overwatch League's first home games live has missed their opportunity to buy tickets. The Fuel announced this week that tickets have been sold out.

As for this upcoming week of matches, there are few matchups between heavyweights this week, meaning the strongest teams should continue their winning ways. At least they will if there are no upsets, which is always a possibility.
