Rough showing in Valiant debut
May 20, 2018
numlocked faltered heavily in his first game with the Los Angeles Valiant when they defeated the Shanghai Dragons 3-1.
ANALYSIS
It took almost the entire season, but numlocked finally made his debut for the Valiant. It's a shame that it didn't go quite as planned. While he did well to show off his hero pool by playing both Winston and Reinhardt, he was completely picked apart from start to finish. There is a lot that he, along with KSF and Verbo, will need to do in order to prevent a repeat of this performance should they need to help out in a pinch.
Fails to impress
May 20, 2018
KSF had a subpar showing in the Los Angeles Valiant's 3-1 win over the Shanghai Dragons.
ANALYSIS
KSF entered the series once the Valiant were up 3-0 in the series and it was a good thing, too. All throughout the final game of the series, he was outplayed by Diya at just about every turn. Whether it was on Genji or Widowmaker, there was nothing at all that KSF could do to help his team do anything. While Diya is certainly a solid DPS player, getting bodied by him isn't the best sign for a backup player.
Makes surprise showing
May 20, 2018
Verbo played in the final game of the Los Angeles Valiant's 3-1 win over the Shanghai Dragons on Saturday. ,
ANALYSIS
With the series already secured at a 3-0 scoreline, the Valiant decided to put in their b-team to get them some experience. It did not go very well. While Verbo is certainly not as bad as this performance led on, it was clear that him, KSF and Numlocked haven't had much time to get on the same page. Still, getting trounced by the Dragons wasn't the greatest showing for the trio.
Continues to take a backseat
May 20, 2018
fragi continued to ride the pine during the Philadelphia Fusion's 4-0 win over the Florida Mayhem on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
After only playing in one game during the team's first series against the Boston Uprising on Wednesday, fragi didn't at all in this series. Against the Mayhem, though, that didn't matter one bit. It seems as though the Fusion are going to give fragi some real time to rest up during Stage 4, which should be good news for Fusion fans. It certainly doesn't help that SADO is a solid backup and can help the Fusion keep powering right along.
Easily supports his team in victory
May 20, 2018
Boombox was on top of things during the Philadelphia Fusion's 4-0 win over the Florida Mayhem on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Playing against the Mayhem, Boombox didn't have much to do all series long. Florida didn't put up a fight at all, which made his life incredibly easy. Nonetheless, he was still on fire for large portions of the game with his Zenyatta. The Fusion have looked pretty good since the start of Stage 4 and this game was no different. If they keep this up, playoffs are very much on the table.
Inconsistent depending on what he plays
May 20, 2018
Diya fell flat on his face a few times during 3-1 loss to Los Angeles Valiant.
ANALYSIS
While Diya did well on Widowmaker earlier in the week against the Dallas Fuel, he showed his flaws again in this series to the Valiant. Maybe because the Valiant are tougher opponents, his Tracer was significantly more cautious than any other DPS in the league. He played scared. Diya definitely has shown the potential of his skill ceiling but he needs the confidence to do so.
Struggled without communication
May 20, 2018
Geguri struggled a lot to play Zarya during 3-1 loss to the Los Angeles Valiant.
ANALYSIS
Zarya is known to be one of Geguri's best heroes, but since her introduction into the Overwatch League, she hasn't really played her. In this series, she demonstrated why that was. Zarya is a difficult hero to play with the language barrier on the team. You need to be able to know when to shield teammates and when to throw out the Graviton Surge. In contrast, D.va is someone you can play with map awareness and reactions. She did well but it might not be the time for Zarya.
Doesn't think about jumping
May 20, 2018
Fearless continues to be a double-edged sword in the 3-1 loss to the Los Angeles Valiant on Saturday Night.
ANALYSIS
Sometimes it looks like Fearless will carry a map and sometimes he just throws it all away. What do both have in common? His leaps into the fray on Winston that either becomes a huge play for him or he dies instantly.
No room to stretch his wings
May 20, 2018
Woohyal did as well as he could during the 3-1 loss to the New York Excelsior on Saturday Night.
ANALYSIS
Woohyal is typically a hero when it comes to D.Va play, even if he's not always considered the best in the league, especially given London's performance throughout stage 3 and this first week of stage 4. Despite that, Woohyal's D.va wasn't downright terrible. It's just that the whole team itself can't give him the room to really shine.
Still somewhat reliable
May 20, 2018
Birdring was still someone to be counted on during 3-1 loss to New York Excelsior.
ANALYSIS
Where the rest of his team continues to fall through the cracks, at least Birdring still plays well enough to instill some hope in the London fanbase. Unfortunately it's not enough to make London look like a functional team, because it's not. Birdring can't do everything himself, and he wasn't perfect to begin with. Just looked a lot better than the rest of the team.
Struggling to find his excellence
May 20, 2018
Profit was ineffective in 3-1 loss to the New York Excelsior on Saturday night.
ANALYSIS
While Profit used to be one of the best DPS in the Overwatch League, he's become less of a threat and more of an empty presence. True, going against New York is a tough matchup, but before stage 3 it used to be a closer story than a one-sided rampage from the Excelsior. Profit just couldn't do anything and that in itself is surprising.
Little impact
May 20, 2018
Gamsu wasn't able to create much space for the Boston Uprising in a 1-3 loss to the Houston Outlaws on Day 3 of Week 1 in Stage 4 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
Gamsu's Winston was underwhelming over the course of the match to say the least. He wasn't able to accurately, or reliably, disrupt the Outlaws to the point where the Uprising could take advantage of the space. This typically boiled down to Gamsu either engaging in an area his team couldn't reach, or playing passively and not taking the initiative in fights. Hopefully Gamsu finds his new place in this meta, and fast, otherwise he will be in for a rough stage.
Persistence till the bitter end
May 20, 2018
Striker attempted to outlast the Houston Outlaws in a 1-3 loss for the Boston Uprising on Day 3 of Week 1 in Stage 4 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
Striker has always been one of the top tier Tracer talents in the OWL, but in Stage 4 this unfortunately becomes a great weakness. Tracer, as a hero, is all but nullified, and Striker looked to persistently try to make it work. This hurdle is a big one for both Striker and Boston as a whole, but how Striker learns to adapt and overcome will be incredibly important for his development as a player.
All bark but no bite
May 20, 2018
AimGod wasn't able to stop the Houston Outlaws in the Boston Uprising's 1-3 loss on Day 3 of Week 1 in Stage 4 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
AimGod made his debut today filling in Neko's Zenyatta role. While his stats were impressive, AimGod wasn't able to have a great enough impact on the match to turn the tide in Boston's favor. Doing a ton of damage is great, but if the team can't take out those targets they become ultimate batteries for the enemy supports. AimGod's mechanics might have been in the right place, but his teamwork looks like it'll need more work.
Defanged killer
May 20, 2018
NotE seems to have lost his bite in the Boston Uprising's 1-3 loss to the Philadelphia Fusion on Day 2 of Week 1 in Stage 4 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
Neko's D.Va was one of the most aggressive in the League, with him constantly diving and picking up eliminations. After losing to New York, however, NotE seems to be having trouble making the same level of impact. In this new meta, NotE can't be as nearly as aggressive as he was with Brigitte being able to easily punish divers. NotE will need to rethink his playstyle, and shift accordingly, to have a major impact on matches to come.
