Overwatch League Day 4 Recap

Dominating performances from the league's top teams rounded out a successful first week of the OWL.

Day 4 of the OWL started with highly anticipated match-ups, and it finished with a clearer picture of where teams stand at the end of the week. The London Spitfire, New York Excelsior, and Seoul Dynasty all claimed victories over their opponents and proved why they deserve top spots on the leaderboard.

Match 1

London Spitfire: 4

Philadelphia Fusion: 0

The Fusion came out strong against London's four-tank offense. We even got to see some cheeky play in game two by Gael "Poko" Gouzerch as he chased around Jun-Ho "Fury" Kim from the London Spitfire. The Spitfire quickly turned things around and won all four games against their foes from Philly.

Match 2

New York Excelsior: 3

Houston Outlaws: 1

Match Two showed the other teams in the league how to make the most of their substitutions. Game Three, on Ilios, saw The N.Y. Excels sub in their control point specialist, Do-Hyeon "Pine" Kim. Pine put on a masterclass with McCree and Widowmaker. After that there was no looking back, and New York took home a 3-1 Victory.

Match 3

Seoul Dynasty: 4

Los Angeles Gladiators: 0

Seoul Dynasty continued to dominate in their 4-0 performance against the hometown crowd's L.A. gladiators. The gladiators couldn't create any space for themselves while being under constant pressure from Fleta's Widowmaker.
