Last week was a fiery rollercoaster ride due to two main reasons: NYXL’s double reverse sweeps and Boston Uprising succeeded in defeating two top Korean teams in a week. Honestly, Week 3 was all about NYXL and Boston Uprising. They were the talk of the town, but before I type anything further about the twosome, let’s focus on the others first.
Shanghai Dragons actually lost 3-1 to both Seoul Dynasty and Florida Mayhem and though their losing streak continues, they were still improving from game to game; Geguri, Fearless and Ado were the important factors and players in elevating the Dragons’ gameplays and I daresay the only direction they’re going is onwards and upwards. On the other hand, Dallas Fuel’s suffering continues with big losses to San Francisco Shock and Houston Outlaws. London Spitfire also finally ended LA Valiant Stage 3’s win streak by beating them 3-2. LA Gladiators lost both their games while San Francisco won both their games. It was a thriller of a week.

Pine Falling For The Oldest Trick In The Book
Overwatch League Stage 3 Week 3 MVP & MVT
In their games against Philadelphia Fusion and LA Gladiators, NYXL was down 0-2 but they aggressively fought back, reverse sweeping them off their feet with 3-2 victories. This was the second time Philly was reverse swept by NYXL as they were the runner-up in Stage 2 playoffs. While NYXL was seen struggling more than usual (especially while other teams are continuously improving), their number one spot in the League standings remained untouched for now because the level of quality gameplay they showcase and execute isn’t something other teams can replicate.
In Stage 3 Week 2, Boston Uprising had beaten NYXL, 3-2. In Week 3, they defeated London Spitfire, 3-2 (this was the second time London had fallen to them) and Seoul Dynasty, 2-1. Action speaks louder than words and Boston Uprising’s performances for the past few weeks undeniably spoke volumes.
