Push The Point #23: Punching Down
That's a wrap on the regular season! We're covering playoff standings, play in brackets, Dogman's heel turn, and the Season 3 schedule reveal. Check it out!...
With Ramses out of town, LoBosco takes the reigns and steers the show forward with special guest Kenobi Casts. Kenobi is a color commentator of the Contenders China region and starts the show off by giving us his background in gaming and esports. We also learn of his deep love for the Chinese region of teams and players.
Kenobi and LoBosco jump in to the latest news, discussing the annoucment of Bawlynn as the Washington Justice GM and what it means for the team moving in to the offseason. The wrost kept secret in the signing of Main Tank TiZi to the Vancouver Titans was finally offically annouce and the guys take a look at what that could mean for Vancouver in the playoffs. The Overwatch League also annouced the postseason map pool which Kenoib and LoBosco broke down about the choices made for each map type and whether there were any maps left off that should have been part of the postseason pool. Last for the major news talked about was the reveal of the London Spitfire’s Flying Ace Winston skin, which both Kenobi and LoBosco expressed their liking of the skin and what they hope the league will do for championship skins in the future.
With only a week left until the end of the regular season, the guys jumped back in to the awards season conversation with a new pair of eyes in Kenobi and got his opinion on all of the postseason awards. Some awards were easier than others but the rookie of the year and regula rseason MVP still left many questions with still a week left to see of games. The guys jumped then jumped in to the Mei/Reaper dps combo which led to Kenobi and LoBosco talking about the need for teams to have the ability to play Mei. This led them back to the postseason talk, with all but 2 spots figured out for the playoffs, the last spot for the play-ins which the Chengdu Hunters and LA Valiant are fighting for and the final spot in the playoffs between the London Spitfire and Atlanta Reign, which will keep either of the teams out of having to earn a spot in the play-ins.
The guys finished their conversation off talking about the Orisa pick and how she more than likely won’t be going anywhere in to playoffs. Kenobi and LoBosco pressed F to pay their respests to Unkoe’s mouse and the Dallas Fuel which caused a large dely in the finish of their game against the Guangzhou Charge. It wasn’t actually the mouse that caused the issue but it did feel like insult to injury to a game the Fuel had already lost.
LoBosco is an esports broadcaster who has wandered his way over to podcasting. As if casting every chance he can wasn't enough, now he wants to talk about Overwatch League as much as he casts. You can hear him with Ramses on Push the Point.
Melty Blood gameplay, Granblue has a patch, SFV new skins, Nick All Stars Brawl is legit and a cake for going 0-2.
