Push The Point #57: Overwatch League Week 11 (2020)
We begin this week’s episode talking about this weekend’s flood of rumors surrounding tensions between Vancouver Titans players and team management. We talk about possible inciting incidents and the effect on the team’s play in both seasons 2 and 3. We also discuss the perceived situation of veteran arrivals Fissure and Ryujehong and the community’s opinion on the situation as a whole.
Next, we break down this week’s Overwatch League action. We recap each game, highlighting our favorite moments, player performances and more. We also have some extended discussions concerning the Gladiators vs Valiant game, “dishonest comps”, Fuel vs Shock, and the seeming shift in public opinion towards Dallas’ head coach Aero. We go on to break down this weekend’s Asian region games, including Leave and the Chengdu Hunters, and the Shanghai Dragons’ DPS dominance.
Lastly, we discuss the incoming hero bans and their difference in competitive and League play. We talk about Blizzard’s consistent stumblings with both Hero Pools and Echo’s rollout, and discuss what needs to change to give her a smoother introduction.
