The OWLs Nest is CheckpointXP’s official podcast for 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 break down the Grand Finals weekend, concluding the 2020 Overwatch League season.
Disappointment and Surprise
The Grand Finals for the 2020 Overwatch League Season included the top three seeded teams from the regular season. Together, the Shanghai Dragons, San Francisco Shock, and Philadelphia Fusion had 7 regular-season losses. Meanwhile, the Seoul Dynasty sits with a 5050 record of 12 wins and 12 losses. It was surprising then to see how successful the Dynasty was as they surged through the play-offs. Showing match after match that they had what it takes to stand toe-to-toe with the others.
But the Philadelphia Fusion was on the other end of the spectrum. They had a very disappointing weekend performance with two 3 and 0 sweeps. The first at the hands of the Shanghai Dragons, knocking them into the losers bracket. Then again against the Seoul Dynasty, ending their grand finals run. Robbie and Jake break down the performances of all four teams, including how the Dynasty managed to pull ahead of the Shanghai Dragons. Jake also answers the burning question that everyone in the league is asking…
How do you beat the San Francisco Shock? Is there any hope, or will their reign continue for another season? To find out more, check out this week’s episode of the OWLs Nest.
