Scheme scheme, plot plot. London Spitfire took that number one spot. Keep coming at them, it won't stop. London Spitfire took that number one spot. Yes stage one is done, finitio, over. It resulted in the Spitfire having to play 14 hours of games, to beat the two teams that beat them in week five, the Houston Outlaws and New York Excelsior, but the team came through to win stage one. Now after two weeks off, stage two begins in possibly the hardest way it could, once again playing rivals Houston and New York.

Hangar Talk: Welcome To Hurricane Airspace

From the moment that the Blizzard announced that the Contenders tier two series would continue and be a building block towards playing in OWL, there has been speculation as to who the London Spitfire would be fielding in their academy team for the new season starting in March. Would the Spitfire continue with the spicy Korean feel that the main team has or would they look to a more European team similar to the one Jack wanted to field as part of his original OWL team. Well the wait is over and we can announce that it will be one of the best European teams in the tier two scene that will represent our academy. Welcome to the British Hurricanes!!

The Rise of Se-Yeon “Geguri” Kim & The Shanghai Dragons

It’s the first ever mid stage break in Overwatch League history, the London Spitfire have just won the first stage with a 12 man roster and it seems that most teams are looking to this model to improve their own chances of winning. One of these teams are the Shanghai dragons, who were the only team not to win a game last stage. While their roster is improving, it isn’t at the same level as the rest of the league and they need to change this fast.

Robert Kraft, well known for owning sports teams within the state of Massachusetts, jumped at the opportunity to enter the esport scene and became the first owner in Overwatch league history by buying the Boston spot. While some teams picked up some of the biggest named players and teams available to them. Boston took a different approach to building their roster, but one that is well known with in the state.
