Push The Point #51: Overwatch League Week 5 (2020)

March 10th, 2020

On this week’s show, Ramses and LoBosco recap all of this week’s action, including recent news stories and this weekend’s homestand festivities. We begin by covering the recent player announcements from the Boston Uprising, as veteran DPS player Munchkin departs the team and rookie support Halo enters the fold. We also discuss the upcoming Mash Those Buttons Throwdown, as well as Ramses’ and LoBosco’s recent charity game to support Direct Relief.

From there, we go on to cover the games from the Week 5, DC homestand. We cover standout performances from the Houston Outlaws and Paris Eternal, as well as the surprising decline of the Toronto Defiant. We also highlight each game’s notable player performances and what the results of each contest mean for teams going forward.

We wrap up with a mini preview of the upcoming Week 6 Hero bans, and the game of the week for the Week 6 Homestand in Florida. We discuss the possible meta compositions we’re likely to see, as well as which teams stand to gain or suffer the most.
