Stands up to JJoNak
June 18, 2018
KariV was on fire in a 3-1 win over the New York Excelsior during the Stage 4 Finals on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Up against frontrunner for season MVP, JJoNak, KariV had a tall task. It's tough to stand out when you're playing against a player like JJoNak and a team like the Excelsior, but KariV did just that in this series. He never shied away from the spotlight and lit things up with his Zenyatta. Not only did he keep his teammates alive, but he doled out damage in droves to allow the Valiant to somewhat easily push past the Excelsior on Sunday. While he doesn't have the full season resume that JJoNak has, KariV can hang his hat on this monumental playoff win.
Saves best performance for last
June 18, 2018
SPACE was thriving in a major way during the Valiant's 3-1 win over the New York Excelsior on Sunday in the Stage 4 Finals.
ANALYSIS
SPACE has been one of the biggest bright spots for the Valiant in the last two stages and this series was no different. He once again played a bevy of different heroes and synergized extremely well with Fate to form one of the beefiest frontlines in the OWL. It was tough for even the likes of Libero, Pine, and Saebyeolbe to break through and get to the Valiant's backline. As such, the Valiant DPS duo of SoOn and Agilities had free reign of the entire map to do what they wanted. If they can do this a few more times this July, they could complete one of the biggest upsets in the short history of the OWL.
Secures key picks in Stage 4 Title match
June 18, 2018
SoOn was on his game during the Los Angeles Valiant's 3-1 win over the New York Excelsior in the Stage 4 Finals on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Going up against Pine, the superstar sniper for the Excelsior, is enough to make anyone nervous. That wasn't the case at all when SoOn was faced with the task of going toe-to-toe with Pine on Sunday. While Pine got the best of him at points, SoOn was the victor in the majority of their engagements. Whenever the Valiant needed a pick to jumpstart a fight, SoOn was right there with his Widowmaker to set his team up for success. Whether he'll be able to keep up this level of production when the Valiant head to the playoffs this summer will determine how deep of a run they can make.
From In N Out parking lot to Stage 4 Champion
June 18, 2018
Agilities capped off his incredible season with a 3-1 win over the New York Excelsior in the Stage 4 Finals on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
While there were some major, and very much publicized, doubts about Agilities' ability to perform for the Valiant early on this season, he has slammed the door shut on them during the last two stages. His continued resurgence was on full display during this season and he stood tall against the likes of Saebyeolble and Libero to bring the Stage 4 Title to Los Angeles. Whether he was playing Junkrat, Pharah, or even Hanzo, Agilities was doing it all for this team. He seemed to always be in perfect sync with SoOn, which allowed them to rip the Excelsior to shreds from start to finish in this series. More of this in the playoffs this July and this team very well could bring home a championship.
Recovers from slow start to win Stage 4 Title
June 18, 2018
Fate held down the frontline during the Los Angeles Valiant's 3-1 win over the New York Excelsior in the Stage 4 Finals on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
While Fate had his hands full during the Valiant's 3-2 win over the Gladiators earlier in the day, he was back in full force against the Excelsior. He was making big play after big play, especially with his Earthshatters on Reinhardt as the hero was giving New York fits. The fact that he was playing so strong against a tank core as formidable as the Excelsior's should give the Valiant plenty of confidence going into the playoffs this summer. It's true that the Excelsior were likely playing things a bit close to the chest, but this win is still a solid one nonetheless.
Leads Valiant to Stage 4 Title
June 18, 2018
Custa was an integral part of the Los Angeles Valiant's 3-1 win over the New York Excelsior in the Stage 4 Finals on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
While Custa is often relegated to Mercy duty, his role on this team is anything be small. Ever since joining this team, Custa has been the leader on the comms and it was no different during their run in the Stage 4 Playoffs. Against both the Gladiators and the Excelsior, Custa managed to keep his team calm and collected as they waded through a pair of difficult series. His contributions were especially present in the Finals, as they managed to play their best Overwatch of the year in a surprising 3-1 win over the Excelsior to claim the title.
Lifeless and passive
June 17, 2018
Freefeel continued to disappoint in the 4-0 loss to the San Francisco Shock.
ANALYSIS
Despite all of Freefeel's mistakes, there was always hope that he could improve before the end of the season, but alas, at the end of a 40-series losing streak for the Dragons, he has yet to improve in any means other than dying just a bit less per match. Maybe before next season, he and his team can pull it together to a point where he can coordinate with the rest of the team in more than a resurrection-bot way.
Off the bench
June 17, 2018
Daemin appeared in the match during a 4-0 loss to the San Francisco Shock.
ANALYSIS
Daemin has spent the majority of his time on the Dragons as a benchwarmer, and it has less to do with him specifically and more to do with the fact that both Ado and Diya are a proven DPS duo. His play was neither terrible nor fantastic but it is proof why he shouldn't be in over either Diya or Ado unless a 3-DPS meta comes into play in the future.
Forged through hellfire
June 16, 2018
birdring continuously proved his worth during a 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Fusion.
ANALYSIS
While the team lost, the London Spitfire single-handedly prevented the Fusion from reaching the playoffs after a push to the end in Watchpoint: Gibraltar. The whole team pitched in at the end, which was one of the most unified moments for the team, but none of it would really be possible without birdring's Widowmaker crushing the Fusion from the far back, in the safety of his sniper's nest. birdring is incredible and his team has never been so far gone that it made him look bad.
Cleaner play than usual
June 16, 2018
Nus didn't look too bad during the 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Fusion on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Nus is usually quite terrible when it comes to supporting the players on the Spitfire since he always gets caught out of position before he can make use of Mercy's revive, but for this series, he didn't really stick out as much, which is actually a good thing given how his deaths are usually so groan-inducing. He revived people who died and kept a steady healing stream as long as he was up. It still wasn't enough to bring home the win, however.
