The OWLs Nest: Rookie Roster
The OWLs Nest is CheckpointXP’s official podcast dedicated to the Overwatch League. Every week Robbie Landis is joined by Jake Lyon to discuss the latest league moves, matches and more.
The opening week of the Overwatch League went down in New York and Dallas last weekend. From the veterans to the rookies, the meta to the casters, the opening matches did not disappoint. Jake talks in-depth about the nature of the meta and the diverse roster of heroes we’ve seen so far. Robbie and Jake take a closer look at the two power house teams from last season, the San Francisco Shock and the Vancouver Titans.
Some of the biggest surprises of the week came from the teams fielding rookie rosters. Since the Los Angeles Valiant and London Spitfire reworked their rosters from the ground up, no one was really sure what to expect. Both of these teams performed exceptionally well given their competition. Robbie and Jake talk about some of the stand-out players and what the future may look like for these teams. Plus, is Boston in for another rough season?
Finally, despite a truncated schedule this weekend Robbie and Jake revealed their pick for Match of the Week.
