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. This week they talk about the Houston Outlaw’s dominant win over the Paris Eternal. Plus, how Paris came back the very next day to give the Philadelphia Fusion their first loss of the season.
The Washington Justice hosted their second homestand last weekend. They were finally able to bring home a win in front of the home crowd, it wasn’t the highlight moment of the weekend. The Houston Outlaws managed to snagged their second win of the season from the Paris Eternal who have been looking very good in recent matches. It was a clean sweep on behalf of the Outlaws and an upset for most predictions in the league. The Paris Eternal came back on the second day to face the undefeated Philadelphia Fusion and won in a game 5.
This was also the first week of the hero pool bans with Reinhardt, Mcree, Widowmaker and Moira all unavailable for play. Robbie and Jake talk about the compositions we saw including a lot of Tracer and Soldier 76, as well as a few Pharahmercy’s and even an Ashe. How will hero pools continue to to affect the league? The next set of heroes banned out are Winston, Soldier 76, Sombra and Lucio.
Finally, Robbie and Jake preview the Florida homestand coming up this week. However, the Overwatch League announced that all the events through the remainder of March and April would be canceled due to concerns over the coronavirus. According to the League the matches will still be played, but exactly when has yet to be announced. The statement said that when it’s safe and makes sense logistically for the teams, the games would be played.
