The grand finalists of the Overwatch League have been decided, just as the teams who will compete in the FACEIT Major in London have been finalised. Here's the Weekend Recap!
The inaugural season of the Overwatch League is closed to wrapping up, with only the Grand Finals left to take place. The playoffs have reached their course and have left two (perhaps surprising) teams to battle it out: Philadelphia Fusion and London Spitfire.
Spitfire had to take down the likes of Los Angeles Gladiators and Los Angeles Valiant to reach the Grand Finals, whereas Fusion defeated both Boston Uprising and New York Excelsior. The conclusive part of the entire tournament will be hosted at the Barclays Center in New York on Jul. 27-28.
All of the teams that will compete in the FACEIT Major in London have been decided as both OpTic Gaming and Ninjas in Pyjamas progressed through the Europe Minor. In the grand finals of the qualifying tournament, NiP dismantled the Danish side to take home the lion's share of the prize pool and a further boost in confidence.
Polish veteran Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas is going to be doing something that he hasn't done before in his CS:GO career: missing a Valve Major. When he was a part of the long-standing Virtus.pro roster they never missed one, but he failed to make it happen with his new roster under Team Kinguin - losing two games in the group stage of the FACEIT Europe Minor to be eliminated.
Caught in the middle of a controversial roster change at the beginning of the month, William "Meteos" Hartman may have found a new calling as an analyst. The now-FlyQuest jungler - who formerly played for 100 Thieves - took to the analyst desk in Week 5 of the NA LCS to share his first-hand insights of the current meta and the competing teams.
