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 the epic match-up between the New York Excelsior and the Shanghai Dragons. Discuss why the Seoul Dynasty continues to flounder. They also take a look at how the Paris Eternal almost upset the Philadelphia Fusion. In response to an ESPN article, Robbie and Jake give their own address on the state of the Overwatch League.

The Lone Star Showdown has begun between the Houston Outlaws and Dallas Fuel. Robbie and Jake discuss the first week of competition and how it was for Jake to cast. Jake details all the reasons the Seoul Dynasty may be struggling and how they can overcome it. The New York Excelsior and the Shanghai dragons go to a game five in one of the best matches of the season. This game cements a cut-throat rivalry going forward. The Philadelphia Fusion goes to a game five with the Paris Eternal again. Jake talks about what it’s going to take for the Eternal to one day pull the win out over the Fusion.

ESPN released an article asking each of its esports analysts and writers to give their take on the current state of the Overwatch League. Robbie and Jake have decided to answer in kind, detailing their own responses to the same questions asked of the ESPN staff.

Finally, Robbie and Jake take a look at this week’s hero bans and some of their matches of the week. The London Spitfire is finally back in action against the Guangzhou Charge. But London’s usual preference for the Reaper and Reinhardt is locked behind hero bans. Dallas will be going up against up the Fusion, can they continue their upward trend and use their momentum against the best in the league?
