Nine Contenders Players To Look Out For Before Contenders Season Two

We’ll take a look at two players from the Chinese, European, Korean and North America Contenders scenes and my reasons why they are the ones to look out for, as this season is an important one to make an impression with there being potentially six new expansion teams going into the Overwatch League.

OWL Writers MVP Nominations Ft Benchmobdc, TisRobin, WolfofVillainy & Volamel

The inaugural Overwatch League regular season is down to its last week of competition. We’ve had almost six and a half months that’s currently seen six different teams make the playoffs, four different teams make the finals and two different stage winners with the London Spitfire winning stage one and the New York Excelsior win stage two and three. We’ve seen highlight reel plays such as the birth of Pine Time with his 4K as McCree on Illios vs Boston, Fissure’s Winston pummelling LA Valiants Pharmacy on Oasis or Linkzr popping off against the Spitfire on Widowmaker. We’ve had xQc, we've had controversy, we’ve had upsets and we’ve had what looks to be Shanghai going 0-40. The League has had it all!

Can The Shanghai Dragons Rise From Their Atrocious First Season?

After another heartbreaking loss where the team had every chance to get their first win but threw it away repeatedly. The Shanghai Dragons have four games in the remaining two weeks to get that ever elusive first win and avoid becoming the first team in Overwatch League history to post a win-less season, joining professional sports teams the 2017 Cleveland Browns and the 2007 Detroit Lions to go an entire season with out winning. There's a lot of things that need to change for Shanghai to be at least a mid-table team and we're going to go through some of these to see if they can be a better team in season two.
