IMPORTANT REMINDER: Soe Opening Weekend Spray is not yet patched into the game client.

This means once you earn the qualifying time for that spray, you cannot access it right away until it arrives in a later patch. Follow my streaming rewards guide thread for updates on when that spray arrives in the game client at a future time. You must still watch the required amount of 4 hours from April 16th to 18th to earn that spray.

The goofy green screen jokes are more amusing than the commentary. Need more green screen stuff.

Very excited for this match, danteh finally has a decent team hopefully they can pop off

Hello, everyone!

Here’s my prediction: Outlaws are likely exhausted after finally, FINALLY, winning the Battle for Texas. The Shock are now fully awake after a slow start last match. I think the Outlaws take a map to make things interesting, but the Shock are going to take this one by a 3-1 verdict.

Edit: Also, the fact Soe is taking “spam calls” regarding the Vancouver Titans, the Atlanta Reign scrimbux, and the cult of OGE is…unfortunate.

im predicting the shock goes 3-2 for this one

I go for a Shock 3-1 victory and a huge Super forehead.

Nerf Doom!

dear god…houston stomped them. i might be regretting my 3-2 shock pick now

Clip: Baby D.Va stagger rating 7 out of 10

Who wants to bet that Symm will get nerfed before McCree?

for owl, almost every dps is viable with some more general heroes like cree/ashe/hanzo/echo getting more playtime than niche ones like junk or df.

Shock looks asleep at the wheel, and it took a VERY lucky snipe from Nero to keep the score 1-0 in favor of the Outlaws.


Lijiang Tower (Control): Houston Outlaws 2, San Francisco Shock 0

Blizzard World (Hybrid): Houston Outlaws 3, San Francisco Shock 3

MATCH SCORE: Houston Outlaws 1, San Francisco Shock 0

NEXT UP: HALFTIME, followed by the second half of Outlaws vs. Shock.

Junkrat support confirmed.

jake is a support player now??? actually i guess he did play brig in goats didnt he

Dang man. Not looking too good for Shock.

Indeed. I knew Houston was going to be hot this season (which is why I had them picked over Dallas on Friday), but damn… they are HOT!


That was a bit one sided wasn’t it, did not expect that.

Which is exactly why “niche” shouldn’t be a thing.

Also I don’t think I have ever seen Torb played in OWL.

I had Shock 3-1 on the pick em. Welp.
