Push The Point #61: Overwatch League Week 14 (2020)

May 12th, 2020

We begin this week with a complete breakdown of the current state of the Vancouver Titans. We cover the former Runaway roster’s exit from the organization, and discuss the Aquelini group’s stated reasons for the split. We go on to preview the team’s new roster made up entirely of Contenders talent, and highlight the individual members’ personal histories in the Overwatch scene. Next, we cover the recent retirement announcements of Washington Justice DPS players Corey and Stratus, and Paris Eternal Flex Support Greyy. We cover the players’ reasons for leaving the game, and what fans can expect from them next.

Next, we recap each of this week’s games, highlighting our favorite matchups, performances, and more. We discuss a recent quote from Reinforce about the validity of upsets in the Overwatch League, and talk about London’s re-entrance into League play. We also discuss the most fun matchups of the week, including close games between the Eternal and the Gladiators, Fusion and Fuel, and Defiant and the Shock. We look at the recent rise of the Dallas Fuel, and discuss whether or not the team has truly arrived as a top tier squad. We also look back at the debut performances from the new Titans squad, point out notable player performances, and determine where the new team is likely to sit in OWL standings.

Lastly, we preview the coming week of games, as a new hero pool bans Tracer, Mei, Orisa, and Moira. With Mei and Orisa gone, we speculate on the presence of dive comps in the coming week and discuss which teams are likely to thrive in the more aggressive meta. Afterwards, we preview the coming week’s games, and highlight which matchups and stories we’re most excited to watch.
