The season has finally come to a close.
All six teams who have automatically qualified for the playoffs have been set and will take a week off as teams compete in the play-in tournament.
The six teams in the play-in tournament have also been set. Despite not playing in the final weekend, the Hunters held onto their spot as the final team to make the play-in tournament.
As the season closes, so do the power rankings. This is the final edition of this year's power rankings.
So what are the team's final placements in Scrub's OWL Power Rankings?

1. (-) San Francisco Shock (23-5)
Even when the Titans pushed the San Francisco Shock San Francisco Shock OWL Rank #2 Viol2t Park Min-ki flex support Finn Oh Se-jin (오세진) flex support Proper Kim Dong-hyeon (김동현) dps s9mm Samuel Santos dps Coluge Colin Arai tank to the brink of defeat, the Shock held on and maintained their undefeated stage. Their dominance in this stage was powered in large part by the heroics of Rascal and ChoiHyoBin , further establishing just how strong the Shock roster is. Just about any of their starting six players were deserving of an MVP nomination prior to the start of Stage 4, but these two have been making a case that maybe they should have been nominated over their teammates.
2. (-) Vancouver Titans (25-3)
If you weren't certain the Vancouver Titans Vancouver Titans OWL Rank #19 Aspire Luka Rolovic dps MirroR Chris Trịnh dps False Nick Wiseman tank Masaa Petja Kantanen support Aztac Park Jeong-soo (박정수) support had regained their mojo, their tightly contested match with the Shock should have pushed you to believing. Their match was certainly exciting and did not look like a game between two teams with nothing to play for.
3. (-) Atlanta Reign (16-12)
The Atlanta Reign Atlanta Reign OWL Rank #10 Kai Kai Collins dps nero Charlie Zwarg dps Hawk Xander Domecq tank UltraViolet Benjamin David support Ojee Christian Han support rolled all of Stage 4. While they didn't play a particularly tough schedule this stage, there is something to be said of a team that never lost more than one map in a match. The only other time that has happened this season is when the Titans and Shock both did it in Stage 2 (the Shock didn't lose a single map that stage).
4. (-) Guangzhou Charge (15-13)
The Guangzhou Charge Guangzhou Charge OWL Rank #9 Cr0ng Nam Ki-cheol (남기철) off tank Farway1987 Cao Jiale (曹家乐) flex support choisehwan Choi Se-Hwan (최세환) dps Develop Chae Rak-hoon (채락훈) dps Rio Oh Seung-pyo (오승표) tank Unique Yoo Dong-hyun support 's late season surge is rewarded with a favorable opening play-in matchup: the Chengdu Hunters. As long as they don't take them too lightly, the match should be very winnable for them. Should they win, they'll play a Seoul Dynasty team they just defeated in Stage 4.
5. (-) Washington Justice (8-20)
This is a final farewell to this year's Washington Justice Washington Justice OWL Rank #17 Decay Jang Gui-un (장귀운) dps Happy Lee Jung-woo (이정우) dps Mag Kim Tae-sung (김태성) tank Krillin Jeong Young-hoon support Opener An Gi-beom support roster. Thanks to their Stage 4 heroics, they moved up to a tie for 17th in the final standings. They will be exciting to watch if they can carry their momentum into next season.
6. (-) Hangzhou Spark (18-10)
At the start of Stage 4, it was the Hangzhou Spark Hangzhou Spark OWL Rank #6 BERNAR Shin Se-won (신세원) off tank irony Kim Hyeong-woo (김형우) flex support Shy Zheng Yangjie (郑杨杰) dps AlphaYi Kim Joon (김준) dps guxue Xu Qiulin (徐秋林) tank superich Wu Gengtuo (吴梗拓) support who looked uncharacteristically weak. By the end of Stage 4, it was the Spark's final opponents--the Shanghai Dragons--who looked uncharacteristically weak. The Spark's improvement saved their place in the top six while avoiding a date with the Shock in the first round of the playoffs.
7. (-) Los Angeles Gladiators (17-11)
In large part thanks to Surefour , the Los Angeles Gladiators Los Angeles Gladiators OWL Rank #4 Shu Kim Jin-seo flex support kevster Kevin Persson dps Patiphan Patiphan Chaiwong dps Reiner Corey Scoda tank FunnyAstro Daniel Hathaway support sealed away the Valiant and kept their place in the top five of the standings. Their great play that match will need follow-up in the playoffs if they hope to overcome the Spark.
8. (+3) New York Excelsior (22-6)
The New York Excelsior New York Excelsior OWL Rank #18 Gangnamjin Gang Nam-jin (강남진) flex support Myunb0ng Seo Sang-min (서상민) flex support Flora Lim Young-woo (임영우) dps Yaki Kim Jun-gi (김준기) dps Kellan Kim Min-jae tank is noticeably better swapping Fl0w3R into the lineup like they did this weekend. Their efforts were enough to take the Titans to map five, which is no laughing matter. I still wouldn't let my confidence in them get too high, but at least they're looking a little bit better now.
9. (-) London Spitfire (16-12)
The London Spitfire London Spitfire OWL Rank #12 Landon flex support SparkR William Andersson dps Backbone Jamie O'Neill dps Hadi Daniel Bleinagel tank Admiral Oliver Vahar support fell out of the top six for the first time since they entered it when they finished 6-1 in Stage 2. Unfortunately, they could do nothing about it as they watched the Kit Kat Rivalry Weekend from home.
10. (-) Seoul Dynasty (15-13)
A week off from their loss to the Fusion should help the Seoul Dynasty Seoul Dynasty OWL Rank #3 Ir1s Kim Seung-Hyun (김승현) FITS Kim Dong-eon (김동언) dps Profit Park Joon-yeong (박준영) dps smurf Yoo Myeong-Hwan tank Vindaim Junwoo Park support rebound when they enter the play-in tournament--at least that's what Dynasty fans hope.
11. (-3) Los Angeles Valiant (12-16)
While the Los Angeles Valiant Los Angeles Valiant OWL Rank #15 Molly He Chengzhi (何诚智) flex support Diya Lu Weida (陆炜达) dps innovation Oh Seok-hyun (오석현) dps Becky Il-ha Kim (김일하) dps Ezhan dps Marve1 Hwang Min-seo (황민서) tank Lengsa Chen Jingyi (陈婧逸) support won't finish the season ahead of the Hunters in the final standings, they can at least end in front of the Hunters in these rankings. That won't get them into the postseason, but at least it's something. KSF deserves quite a bit of credit for showing fight and trying to carry the team in their time of need. Unfortunately for them, it wasn't enough.
12. (-) Chengdu Hunters (13-15)
The Chengdu Hunters Chengdu Hunters OWL Rank #13 Mmonk Zhou Xiang (周翔) flex support Daizi Ni Yuandong (倪远东) off tank Jinmu Yi Hu (易虎) dps Leave Huang Xin (黄馨) dps GA9A Qiu Jiaxin (仇佳鑫) tank Nisha Tan Li (谭力) support have the Gladiators and the Shock to thank for their spot in the play-in tournament. Now they need to make the most of it and upset some teams to get into the playoffs.
13. (-) Florida Mayhem (6-22)
The Florida Mayhem Florida Mayhem OWL Rank #8 SirMajed Majed Alrashied flex support Checkmate Baek Seung-hun dps Hydron Isaiah Rodriguez dps someone tank ANAMO Jeong Tae-seong (정태성) support would have qualified for their first ever stage playoffs had there been stage playoffs at the end of Stage 4. Unfortunately, that did not happen and thus the era of stage playoffs will end without the Mayhem ever making one.
14. (-) Philadelphia Fusion (15-13)
The first opponent for the Philadelphia Fusion Philadelphia Fusion OWL Rank #11 AimGod Min-seok Kwon flex support MN3 Yoon Jae-hee dps ZEST Kim Hyun-woo (김현우) dps Belosrea tank FiXa Kwon Young Hoon (권영훈) support in the play-in tournament will be a floundering Shanghai Dragons squad. Such a matchup may help them surpass expectations in the play-ins.
15. (-) Paris Eternal (11-17)
Despite looking unimpressive throughout the season, the Paris Eternal Paris Eternal OWL Rank #20 Kaan Emir Kaan Okumus flex support Glister Lim Gil-seong (임길성) dps Wub Cameron Johnson dps Dove Jesse Palomo dps Malthel Josh Gonzales dps Daan Daniël Vincentius Paulus Scheltema tank Krawi tank dridro Arthur Szanto support Lukemino Luke Fish support Rakattack Kyle Rakauskas support were surprisingly consistent. They finished 3-4 in three different stages, which the Hunters also did en route to qualifying for the play-in tournaments. The difference is in the one outlier stage: the Eternal finished 2-5 in Stage 2 while the Hunters finished 4-3 in Stage 4.
16. (-) Shanghai Dragons (13-15)
The Shanghai Dragons Shanghai Dragons OWL Rank #5 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 Fate Koo Pan-seung (구판승) tank LeeJaeGon Lee Jae-gon (이재곤) support need an enormous rebound after finishing 1-6 in Stage 4. I'd like to say they are better off when they put diem into the lineup, but that is clearly not making any difference as they continue to lose regardless of who plays alongside DDing . While I would say they should maybe experiment with playing YoungJIN and diem as their DPS combo, I'm not sure either can play Mei. Their best bet is to hope the play-in tournament's patch changes the meta enough that their DPS are on heroes they're more comfortable with.
17. (-) Houston Outlaws (9-19)
The Houston Outlaws Houston Outlaws OWL Rank #7 Lastro Moon Jung-won (문정원) flex support creative Kim Young-wan (김영완) flex support Danteh Dante Cruz dps Pelican Oh Se-hyun (오세현) dps Mer1t Choi Tae-min dps Piggy Shin Min-jun tank ' offseason is the toughest to predict in all of the Overwatch League. Who knows what plans the new ownership has for the team!
18. (-) Toronto Defiant (8-20)
At least the Toronto Defiant Toronto Defiant OWL Rank #14 Twilight Lee Joo-seok (이주석) flex support Heesu Jeong Hee-su (정희수) dps Finale dps MuZe Kim Young-hun (김영훈) tank Ch0r0ng support got a win in their final stage. Doing so allowed them to avoid a 14 match losing streak to end the season.
19. (-) Dallas Fuel (10-18)
The Dallas Fuel Dallas Fuel OWL Rank #1 Fielder Kwon Joon (권준) flex support Doha Kim Dong-Ha (김동하) dps SP9RK1E Kim Young-han (김영한) dps FEARLESS Lee Eui-seok (이의석) tank ChiYo Han Hyeon-syuk (한현석) support , on the other hand, did not get a win in the final stage. Their season ended on a 12 match losing streak.
20. (-) Boston Uprising (8-20)
I enjoyed seeing blasé play Reinhardt. More seriously, I really like what I've seen out of Colourhex 's Widowmaker. If there are positives to the Boston Uprising Boston Uprising OWL Rank #16 Valentine Kim Byoungju dps punk Leyton Gilchrist tank Faith Hong Gyu Kim support Crimzo William Hernandez support 's final stage, it's that Colourhex began to shine a bit as a formidable sniper player.
