San Francisco Shock
USA
Stumbles in sniper battles
June 14, 2018
Babybay failed to shutdown enemy snipers in a 3-1 loss to the Los Angeles Valiant on Wednesday of the Overwatch League Stage 4.
ANALYSIS
Babybay has made a name for himself in Stage 4 as an excellent McCree. And while he dominated King's Row, he failed to do much in Hanamura due to the enemy snipers. On King's Row, Babybay's long range was able to zone out the Valiant from the point, burning the clock by scoring hero picks until the Valiant had no time to work with. But by Hanamura, Babybay's struggled in the map's open terrain to find angles onto his opponent. This led to a variety of missed pushes as he saw himself get picked off early by Los Angeles hot snipers.
Makes a rare apperence
June 14, 2018
Danteh tried to turn around the San Francisco Shock in a 3-1 loss to the Los Angeles Valiant on Wednesday of the Overwatch League Stage 4.
ANALYSIS
The San Francisco Shock went from stomping the Los Angeles Valiant to being blown out by their opponents. In a last ditch effort, the Shock subbed in Danteh on Dorado, a map he's traditionally been a master of in Stage 3. In Shock's defense, Danteh's Junkrat was able to stall the Valiant to a crawl with Los Angeles only scoring three points while in overtime. Unfortunately, Danteh struggled to find openings while on attack against his opponents due to the Valliant's strong tanks.
Drops to enemy snipers
June 14, 2018
moth struggled to stay alive in a 3-1 loss to the Los Angeles Valiant on Wednesday of the Overwatch League Stage 4.
ANALYSIS
The Los Angeles Valiant ran a long-range composition that moth struggled against despite his best efforts. Early into the series moth seemed to be on point as the Shock steamrolled the Valiant on King's Row. This was partly thanks to moth's Mercy being maneuverable enough to avoid suppressing fire. But in Hanamura, moth struggled to survive. The Valliant's snipers were able to find early kills onto him, putting the Shock at a disadvantage before teamfights even happened. moth would attempt to counter the enemy snipers by playing on the Shock's defense, but misplaced Biotic Grenade allowed the Valiant a key opening to take the map.
Plays a slow, but defensive, Reinhardt
June 9, 2018
super played a defensive tank in a 2-1 loss to the New York Excelsior on Saturday of the Overwatch League Stage 4.
ANALYSIS
New York focused heavily on a double-sniper and projectile compositions this series. super attempted to play into this by playing shield tanks like Reinhardt for most of the series, using the hero's shields to safely ferry his team onto the objective. Unfortunately, super's Reinhardt wasn't mobile enough to shutdown New York as his opponents attempted to play from afar and on high-ground. This put super in the difficult position of attempting to absorb huge amounts of damage as his team slowly crawled to the objective. While he was able to mitigate a lot of damage, having a uncanny ability to keep his shields healthy, super's lack of mobility allowed New York to rotate around them.
Focuses on Zarya
June 9, 2018
sinatraa attempted to counter New York Excelsior in a 2-1 loss on Saturday of the Overwatch League Stage 4.
ANALYSIS
In order to play against New York's double-sniper composition, sinatraa had to use his pocket hero, Zarya, instead of his main hero Tracer. His Zarya saw some uneven results as he attempted to barrel straight onto objectives and into the Excelsior's roster. On King's Row, for example, sinatraa had to flip between his Tracer and Zarya in order to harass his opponent. However, when the map came down to a single push he struggled to find kills as his Zarya struggled to stay alive. His Zarya would find much more value on Oasis where he could easily bully New York's Pine as the map had less coverage.
