Overwatch League May Melee (2020)
NEW EPISODE! We're breaking down all 36 hours of the May Melee, some new signings, and what to expect from Overwatch League in June. Available everywhere now! #OWL2020...
This week, we’re joined by our first repeat guests, Howleir and Aluramore of the COWL Fans podcast! We catch up on their year in podcasting, how the pandemic has affected their show, and what it’s like to be a Florida Mayhem fan from 2018 to now. We then launch into a heavy slate of news as the league publishes new rules regarding player signings and playing locations due to COVID. These rules paved the way for some huge signings this week including JJanu and Stitch joining the Washington Justice on 14 day contracts. We also look at the recent movement on the Hangzhou Spark, as DPS player Bazzi retires and the team looks to bring in Champion Shock DPS Architect. Lastly, we cover the Shock’s other huge move, the signing of former Titans’ flex support and support role star Twilight.
Next, we recap the Week 15 Overwatch League games, as standings finalize for the May Melee tournament. We discuss the frustrating inconsistency of the Seoul Dynasty, the suddenly strong Houston Outlaws, and the Boston Uprising’s huge upset win over the LA Gladiators. We look at each game from this week’s schedule and recap our favorite moments, player performances, and more.
Lastly, we give our intial predictions for the May Melee tournaments as brackets begin to finalize. We give a rough prediction for the NA tournament as seating is dependent on a qualifier match between the Titans and the Defiant. Then, we break down the first round of matchups in the Asian division, making our predictions for the winning team.
