Following Week 1’s shenanigans, Week 2 did a pretty follow-up with plenty of action. Boston Uprising stomped NYXL with a 3-2 win, proving to anyone that their skills were on par with their namesake. It was a great week for rising mid-tier teams as Philadelphia Fusion, Los Angeles Gladiators, Los Angeles Valiant and Boston Uprising had two straight wins each. Then Dallas Fuel dropped a bombshell, announcing the release of KyKy and Rascal.
Also, woe had befallen the top teams as NYXL was handed their first loss of their stage, London Spitfire lost a series to Philly and Seoul Dynasty were defeated by LA Gladiators. In terms of big losers, Dallas Fuel, Houston Outlaws, Florida Mayhem and Shanghai Dragons suffered two straight losses each. Even though Shanghai Dragons was defeated by San Francisco Shock with a 3-1 score, the team had actually improved quite a bit (players that you should watch out for are Ado, Fearless and Geguri) and it was a close series. I won’t be surprised if their first win in the Overwatch League is coming soon...
Here are the latest standings:

Overwatch League Stage 3 Week 2 MVP & MVT
MVT: Boston Uprising
Despite booting their main DPS outta their team, Boston Uprising continued their steady rise in the standings by putting out solid performances against other teams. They’ve beaten London Spitfire before and now they’ve defeated number one seed NYXL. Once deemed as an underdog, the team is now seen as a worthy rival to challenge the top teams in the League.
MVP: Pine (NYXL)
I crowned Pine as the MVP in Week 1 and now I’m choosing him as the MVP again because he totally popped off in the NYXL vs Houston Outlaws series. He played three maps and his Widowmaker play was on point, one shot, one kill. Outlaw’s LiNkzr is one of the best counter-snipers in the League but Pine managed to one-upped him in their match-up, completely dominant. Not to mention, winning in the Widowmaker vs Widowmaker duels.
Speaking of MVPs, do you know that you can now vote for Overwatch League MVP?
