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 break down the return of the Vancouver Titans and their 0 and 2 weekend. They also discuss the continued success of the Philadelphia Fusion and the Shocks revenge tour. Plus, with week 10 behind us we’re more than a third of the way through the season.

What does the future hold for some teams? Robbie and Jake break down what we’ve seen of the Houston Outlaws and the Philadelphia Fusion so far this season. Last week gave us the return of the Vancouver Titans who hadn’t played since the beginning of the season. Runner-ups for the 2019 Championship game and first seed for the 2019 season. They dropped both of their matches to the Guangzhou Charge and Chengdu Hunters, taking only a single map of the Hunters. The Philadelphia Fusion continued their winning stream but the Paris Eternal and Atlanta Reign did not let them off easy. Plus, the San Francisco Shock completed their revenge against the Los Angeles Teams that handed them two consecutive loses in week 9.

With one-third of the season behind us and closing in on the halfway point, Robbie and Jake are going to start taking a deep dive into each team’s rosters. This week they focus on the Houston Outlaws and the Philadelphia Fusion. What have we seen so far and what could it mean for the future of each one? The Houston Outlaws faced some early hardships but have started to course correct. Do they have what it takes to be playoff material? The Philadelphia Fusion has the best record in the league and shows signs of slowing down. Do they have what it takes to become champions?

Finally, hero pools and bans have had their rules altered again. Now both Overwatch League usage and competitive ladder usage will affect the hero pools each week. Overall is this a positive change for the world of Overwatch or does it fall in between good and bad?
