BOS vs. SFS – Overwatch League Season 1 Stage 1 W2 in Matches

The first mostly Korean team to lose to a western team, I think.

In every major professional sport, player fine money is donated to charity. I hope Blizzard does the same.

Fuel bench xQc following comments on stream in News

Because being a homophobic asshole is approximately 1/30th as serious as boosting players on ladder. The fact that xQc continues to be let off so easily when he is so clearly a negative influence on the integrity of the league is stupid.
Edit: 4 game suspension + a fine is definitely enough to send a message. I hope xQc learns from this experience. Sado's 30 game suspension is still inconsistent with everything else Blizzard has done, but this suspension occurring during the season on such a high-profile player demonstrates Blizzard's attitude towards player professionalism.
Edit 2: The full stage suspension by Dallas Fuel seems odd given that nothing about the situation has changed since they gave him the one-match suspension, but I guess they want to reiterate their commitment to professionalism to their sponsors. Sado still should not have been suspended for 30 games.

DAL vs. HOU – Overwatch League Season 1 Stage 1 W2 in Matches

Apologies. I should have used a better term. What I meant to say is that the team doesn't coordinate well which makes the individual decisions look impulsive. As for the tilt factor, Dallas won the initial fight on both control stages and on both offense and defense on Eichenwalde, but looked worse as the round went on. This doesn't guarantee that tilt was involved but it does point to tilt being a possible factor.

DAL vs. HOU – Overwatch League Season 1 Stage 1 W2 in Matches

Humble, soft-spoken, team-first players will outperform cocky individualistic all-stars every time. That's why Korea always wins, and that's why Dallas was bound to burn out eventually. It's telling that Effect refused the chance to play for Lunatic Hai because Envy would give him more playing time. Dallas' players are neurotic and unable to play together despite their incredible talent. Dallas has players who get tilted. Houston has Coolmatt and Muma.

FLA vs. SEO – Overwatch League Season 1 Stage 1 W2 in Matches

Florida's consistency on the first three maps was insane. First map: 82 meters after the first point. Second map: 82.8% cap of the second point. Third map: 78% on the first point and 86% on the second point averages out to 82%! That's not a relevant statistic whatsoever, just thought it was cool.

HOU vs. SHD – Overwatch League Season 1 Stage 1 W2 in Matches

Hou 3-1. The Outlaws are better than the Dragons, but they really can't play control maps. SHD will take Oasis but lose the other maps pretty easily.
Edit: One interesting thing to note is that in SHD's two times playing Lunar colony they full-held their opponents both times. Small sample size, but they might be pretty good at that map.

Clock's tracer on Ilios was fine. He landed pulse bombs, harassed janus and Meko, and died to pine less than you might expect considering how insane he played. Jake's Junkrat was the reason Houston won junkertown.

Even if a women's league only averaged 2-3k viewers per match that would still be a success. The average Lynx game has an attendance of 9k.

Females in OWL in General Discussion

If OWL is going to model itself off of traditional sports I see no reason why there can't or shouldn't be a WOWL. There are enough good female players for it to still have high-quality games and bring in a decent enough audience to make a women's league worth Blizzard's effort.

Houston can't play control maps, so if it comes down to a tiebreaker, NYXL should win. That being said, it probably won't. NYXL 3-1.

PHL vs. HOU – Overwatch League Season 1 Stage 1 W1 in Matches

Spree and Rawkus were the problem, not Jake. Spree was consistently outplayed by Poko and SBD, and Rawkus died with ult way too often. In this meta, D.Va and Zen are the most important damage dealers on a team, and the Outlaws didn't have a good player at either of those roles.

Also, I'd like to remind everyone that at the end of the day, a close loss is still a loss, and none of the players on Houston except for Linkzr have ever won anything.

Sejong because their players still play Overwatch, Busan because I can't ignore the point about the lack of a Pharah player, although insulting one of your own players in a poem is a strange tactic.

OWL discussion thread in General Discussion

Although the GC Busan roster fell flat during the preseason, the KDP top 5 in the world pre-OWL lineup London put forward played well enough for me to still have confidence in them. NYXL will be better now that they don't have to put Pine on support. Dallas looked completely unstoppable at times but shaky at others. If they figure out how to play like they did in the last round of Lijiang against Houston they could very easily take home the trophy, but if they don't the Koreans will have the edge. I think we'll see a lot of close matches from every team in the league. Philadelphia won't really be hurt at all by not playing the preseason. With all of the scrims and training teams do missing 2 matches won't hurt them.

The biggest surprise of all to me is how well the 3 former Kungarna members played. Babybay in particular looked like one of the best DPS in the league. I guess that team was better than we thought. Calling it now, ya boy KING Mykl will find himself on an OWL team eventually.

The other huge problem is that a worldwide league just isn't feasible if you want to play a high amount of games. Next season, if there aren't more Asian and European teams, it will be extremely unfair to London, Seoul, and Shanghai to have to fly back and forth across the ocean for every away match (assuming the plan to have arenas in every city actually happens).
