    Now to see if Fissure retires mid-match

    If LA can last until map 4 they might have a chance to pick up Fissure to finish the match out with!

    I'm not as much a fan of the new schedule format where for some reason the matches on each day are broken up.
    And the fact that for some reason the stream ends after the match so I have to dig up the channel and start a new one?

    I went to OWL's game page to see what's on and didn't even see the second set of games at first cause of its terrible layout. Then I clicked watch and couldn't figure out how to get that working.

    Excellent execution.

    As expected, Cloudy looking like the weak link. I expected the Glads to lose today so I'm just glad they kept it close, but I sure hope they can get Cloudy to rein (heh) that shit in.

    I must say, Reinforce and Custa are fantastic together on the desk.

    Edit: And the end of Watchpoint was absolutely wonderful.

    The stream I was watching didn't stop.

    Were you watching on Gigabrain or the OWL website? I was watching it directly on YouTube and it definitely stopped.

    I was watching on the Overwatch League channel, and it definitely stopped for me. I went to the bathroom during the swap over to the Dallas Homestand and when I got back I was like "Oh neat, they're playing part of a KarQ tip video during the break" and then after it was on for suspiciously long I realized I was on KarQ's actual channel because I had forgotten to turn off autoplay.

    More games today. I'm picking...

    London Spitfire vs Paris Eternal - I may regret this, but Paris
    Boston Uprising vs NYXL - NY, easy
    Los Angeles Valiant vs Vancouver Titans - I'm not convinced by the Titans, but... Still Titans
    San Francisco Shock vs Dallas Fuel - easiest pick of the day, SF by a million.

    I may have had to leave before the swap to the other homestand. I was thinking you meant it was stopping between matches.

    I like the way Paris uses Sym. It's basically the old double barrier / reaper / mei comp, except D.Va's back in the meta now, and she shuts down reaper pretty hard. So just run Sym instead, she can't escape like Reaper can, but she chews up D.Va, and since the other team only has 1600 barriers they can't last long in a shield war. The Mei means Rein must keep his shield up, which means Sym is more free to push directly into the frontline.

    "He's like a reddit lucio but good"

    That's very hurtful! All reddit lucios are beautiful in their own way.

    Oooh we got some double dive in Oasis City Center. Boston running Super Monkey Ball with Sombra/Tracer.

    I don't actually know if this is a thing or not but in a tracer mirror it always looks like there's some mindgames going on as they try and outblink each other

    Oh it's 100% a thing. Tracer duels are crazy deep in cooldown management and positioning.

    Edit: Boston's DPS aren't finishing kills. CHex missed so many rockets that would have secured kills. The whole team just crumbles when they have an advantage. There's gotta be some communication problems.

    I feel like Boston almost had something going on Oasis but once they lost that map they're starting to crumble again

    Or maybe NYXL is just finding their groove now, it took about 1.5 maps yesterday too for them to really get going it felt like

    The Titans in this map are just like "this fight haksal will carry by being insane at Genji. Then Fissure will carry the next fight by being insane on Winston. Then we'll get a crazy D.Va bomb. Then repeat the cycle."

    It's not like it's crazy teamwork or anything really, but they know they've got crazy good players and they're just fully riding the carries
