Push The Point #81: OWL Playoffs Bracket Finals (2020)

September 16th, 2020

We begin this week’s episode with the unveiling of this year’s MVP winner, Fleta of the Shanghai Dragons. We discuss his incredible performance across multiple metas, his flexibility on a wide variety of heroes, and what character skin fans can expect next season. Speaking of skins, we also look at the newly unveiled 2020 All Stars skins, with new skins for D.va and Reinhardt coming to celebrate All Star Weekend.

Next, we look at the past weekend of playoff action, going game by game to break down our favorite moments, player performances, and more. We watch the Washington Justice’s incredible surge through the losers bracket, as they nearly enter the final four, in between dominant performances from the San Francisco Shock and the Philadelphia Fusion. We also analyze the games from the APAC bracket, as the Seoul Dynasty hit their stride at just the right time and the NYXL and Guangzhou Charge fail to advance into final four.

Lastly, we take a look at what’s to come from Grand Finals weekend when Overwatch League returns in October. We also give listeners information about what to expect from PtP during the month long break, as well as what topics we’ll aim to cover in the interim.
