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 break down Philadelphia’s dominant performance against the Atlanta Reign. Shanghai’s match against Seoul and the epic Battle of Texas. They also discuss the new Overwatch League May tournament format, Sinatraa’s retirement, and more.

A few weeks ago the Philadelphia Fusion was put to the test and taken to a game five twice in one weekend. One of the teams to take them to the edge was the Atlanta Reign, but this time around the Fusion made quick work of the Reign with a clean sweep. What changed and does it a good sign for Philly or a bad omen for Atlanta? The Shanghai Dragons continue to dominate the west as they took on the Seoul Dynasty. This was Seoul’s first match in weeks since the Covid-19 pandemic disrupted play. Many were expecting a much closer game, but the Dragons delivered a clean sweep to the Dynasty. Plus, the Battle of Texas returned and proved to be the most interesting match of the week between the Houston Outlaws and the Dallas Fuel.

The Overwatch League announced for May a tournament format shift. Instead of regular-season matches, a single-elimination tournament will be held throughout the month. One will be held in North America while another will be held in the Asian region. A surprise retirement announcement shook the Overwatch scene as Jay “Sinatraa” Won announced he would be retiring from Overwatch to pursue a career in Riot’s new tactical shooter, Valorant. Finally, the Outlaws and the Fuel are partnering up to take the Battle of Texas to the next level. The Lone Star Showdown will feature three weeks of competition and skill challenges and a three-part docu-series following the behind the scenes drama.

Finally, Robbie and Jake prepare you for what to expect going into the weekend. The Hero Bans this week shouldn’t impact disrupt the usual meta compositions too much. Can the Philadelphia Fusion stomp out the Paris Eternal as easily as they did the Reign. Will the Seoul Dynasty bounce back after their 3-0 loss to the Shanghai Dragons? Listen to our matches of the week and what to expect.
