A, on the other hand, are in must-win territory, if they have any hope of making the finals.

Match Two — Florida Mayhem vs. In the 2018 edition, 24 countries will be involved. Just like the regular season matches, the Overwatch League Playoffs will be broadcast live from the Blizzard Esports Arena in Los Angeles, California, and can be seen on or on the Overwatch League.
Stay tuned as we bring more from the biggest Overwatch event of the year. Hey do you want to write about video games? Now, which teams have survived in this very close league? With the stability of salaries and benefits, the best career Overwatch players in the world will clash year-round in pursuit of the Overwatch League Championship—and millions of dollars in bonuses! Since Excelsior and Valiant currently lie at the top of the pack, they do not have to compete in the first week of playoffs, making it much more likely they will make it through to the Grand Finals where only two teams compete to become the Overwatch League Season One champions. Let us know in the comments below! Philadelphia and Boston kicked off the playoffs on Wednesday, playing their first match of two at the Overwatch Arena. Though it currently comprises hand-picked champions, future competitors are likely to be selected by Overwatch League scouts from among talented Overwatch Contenders, ensuring the Overwatch League will be continually filled with proven athletes. This match could be a huge factor in who makes it into the Season Finals at the end of Stage 4.
The full schedule for the quarter-final series are as follows: Predictions The quarter-finals matches — well actually, all of the playoff matches — are tough to call but if we were to pick the winners for each series, they would be: Philadelphia over Boston in three 2-1. Carpe on Widowmaker also pushed far forward in an attempt to get some early eliminations. Right now the Stage 1 Playoffs are all but set mathematically, with , London Spitfire, and Seoul Dynasty holding down the top three spots. The Philadelphia Fusion, who were required to sweep the Los Angeles Valiant to keep its playoff hopes alive, had its dreams shattered following a Game 1 loss that knock the team out of playoff contention. The week two matchups will depend on seeding. As the top-ranked club, New York will face the lowest remaining seed, while the Valiant will take on the other team.
Grand Finals With my predictions, I see the New York Excelsior 1 playing against the Los Angeles Gladiators 4. With some great eliminations getting traded back and forth, Philadelphia stabilized over the payload halfway over the bridge to the second point. There are seven Contenders regions, some home to Overwatch League Academy teams! Like the previous rounds, the grand finals will consist of a best-of-three series of matches that will be spread out over a few days. They took both objectives on their first push with 5 mins to spare, putting them in a virtually unloseable situation. As mentioned before, the biggest possibility for change involves the Seoul Dynasty and if any non-Korean team is going to find itself in the playoffs, it will most certainly be at the expense of Seoul. The top seed from each Division will receive a first-round bye. Others, however, are skeptical that this exposure will lead to positive attention.
While yes, we are a small team, but that will only bring more opportunities and room to grow! Sometimes aggression translates to lots of deaths, sometimes that translates to lots of damage done, occasionally it translates to a mix of both. Boston is still the only team in the league to boast an undefeated stage record, a significant feat even though they lost in the stage championships to New York Excelsior. The only question left is: was Stage 4 a sign of weakness? With their spawn point right next to the objective, Boston was able to survive three Eqo Dragonstrikes. The top two teams from each group will then move on to compete in the finals, which will be held at BlizzCon in November. Therefore, we predict these two teams will likely push forward into the second week of playoffs to go up against Valiant and Excelsior to go to the Grand Finals.
New York Excelsior seems like the team to beat in Season One of the Overwatch League, and after hitting their stride in Stage Four, Valiant seems like the team to do it. Though it currently comprises hand-picked champions, future competitors are likely to be selected by Overwatch League scouts from among talented Overwatch Contenders, ensuring the Overwatch League will be continually filled with proven athletes. Joining Overwatch Contenders is a major milestone for any aspiring Overwatch pro player. The first day of competition, this week, will have one match from the Philadelphia Fusion and the Boston Uprising series and one match from the London Spitfire and the Los Angeles Gladiators series. Their team now consists of: Striker and Mistakes on the attack, Note, Kalios and Gamsu on tank, and Neko, Aimgod and Kellex on supports. Seoul Dynasty Viewers were treated to a back and forth affair on Friday night, in a game that showcased a higher amount of parity than expected. Til then, keep it locked on to Kakuchopurei.
This team still is the only team to have a perfect stage, and they hope to recapture that form for the playoffs. Shortly after, the Uprising completed their attack run, forcing to map into time bank rounds. The first set of matches kicks off tomorrow with the Philadelphia Fusion taking on the Boston Uprising at 8am Malaysia time followed by London Spitfire vs Los Angeles Gladiators at 10am. The Reign will host matches on July 6-7, however, a venue has yet to be named. However, the remaining games were to be played three days later. They found Philadelphia much less malleable this time than on Eichenwalde.
Both teams had a roller coaster of an inaugural season, with stages where they looked brilliant alongside stages where they looked stifled. After Map 1 Void was subbed out for Bischu, and that seemed to make all the difference. Maybe they have played video games. However, Boston was able to dismantle Philadelphia before the payload made it across the threshold to the next portion of the map. The competition will span three days the first week. Map Score: Uprising 2, Fusion 1 Match Score: Uprising 1, Fusion 1 Map Three: Eichenwalde On attack first, Philadelphia quickly established themselves on the objective, which led to a quick point A take. If they get rolling, they might get farther than people think.
The tournament will start this week with the quarterfinals stage, where the teams bottom four playoff teams will compete for the chance to face the top two. And that's what we've got. While the change itself is debatable, it might be a bit misleading. The top four teams will qualify for the Playoffs; in the event of a tie, map wins followed by head-to-head record will determine which team will advance. London Spitfire will now face Los Angeles Valiant while Philadelphia Fusion will face New York Excelsior in the Semifinals.
