Push The Point #74: Overwatch League Week 26 (2020)
We're prepping for Countdown Cup with coverage of this week's news, a recap of this week's OWL action, and a look ahead at the tournament brackets! Available everywhere now! #OWL2020...
We start this week by covering the San Francisco Shock’s recent pickup of DPS player Ta1yo. We discuss his history through Contenders and with Team Japan, and how his history of grinding finally paid off with the Shock. We then begin our breakdown of this week’s games, covering the action and results from every single matchup. We pay specific attention to 2 high profile upsets as the Chengdu Hunters and the New York Excelsior both earn wins over some of the region’s stronger teams. We also dive into the philosophy behind the current Genji/dive/zarya meta and how the best teams are able to execute the composition to its peak.
After recapping this week’s games, we move on to our preview of this coming week’s games. As Countdown Cup qualifiers look to wrap up, we look at which matchups will be the most interesting to watch and which teams need wins in order to secure seeding in the tourney.
