The OWLs Nest is CheckpointXP’s official podcast dedicated to the Overwatch League. Every episode Robbie Landis is joined by Jake Lyon to discuss the latest league moves, matches, and more. This episode Robbie and Jake talk about some of the biggest blow out matches of the second week of the Overwatch League Summer Showdown.
There are winners and losers in every game, but the severity of the sting of defeat can vary. A close game fin that comes down to a 99% to 99% in round three can feel exhilarating. And despite a loss, some competitors walk away feeling like they did their best and lost to a worthy opponent.
But clean sweeps in the Overwatch League rarely leave anyone but the winners feeling satisfied. During week 2 of the Overwatch League Summer Showdown, three matches ended with fans in tears. Robbie and Jake break down those matches between this week on the OWLs Nest.
The San Francisco Shock cemented themselves as one of the best teams in the league, again, as they swept the Paris Eternal. With that win they are the only team to deliver a clean sweep to every team in the Overwatch League. They also put a major hurt on the Washington Justice. The Dallas Fuel, who have been seeing some improvements in their own game-play over the past month stumbled hard against the recently reformed Vancouver Titans. It’s the Titans’ first big win since the roster re-work and hopefully means they’re on the upswing.
