London Spitfire
England
Passive in defeat
February 12, 2018
Gesture never took any real chances against the New York Excelsior is the London Spitfire's 2-3 loss on Day 4 in Week 5 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
Gesture seemed to constantly second guess on every engage. This came across on screen as a hesitant Spitfire as a whole at critical times. Having such a passive tank allowed the Excelsior to dictate the pace of fights. While it's a good idea to respect a team such as the Excelsior, Gesture needs to be more confident in his play to give the Spitfire more opportunities to succeed.
Commendable effort in close loss
February 12, 2018
Bdosin couldn't carry the London Spitfire past the New York Excelsior on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Bdosin had a stellar patient Zenyatta in this match. Typically he would aim to use Transcendence after JjoNak's Zenyatta to allow the Spitfire to gain an advantage. The problems arose when that serenity was disrupted. Whether it was Saebyeolbe or the entirety of the Excelsior, Bdosin seemed to be shaken by the aggression of the Excelsior. Where this was especially apparent was on Control points, and he seemed to have much less of an impact on fights. To further improve he'll need to learn how to consistently stay cool on every map type.
Can't get proper positioning
February 12, 2018
birdring had some unique angles on the New York Excelsior in the London Spitfire's 2-3 loss on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
birdring's mechanical skill is supreme, with a notable four-shot kill onto Ark's Mercy early in the series. Most of the time this is supported by an interesting position by birdring in an attempt to maximize his impact. However, this seemed to work more effectively on some maps than others. For Payload and Assault maps they did well, but on Control he was caught out alone at critical moments. Once birdring memorizes all of these maps he'll be a force to reckon with everywhere, but right now it's a little limited.
Holds down the frontline in dominating win
February 4, 2018
Fury played a strong set in the London Spitfire's 4-0 dominating sweep over the Shanghai Dragons on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
It didn't matter what hero Fury got his hands on in this series; he straight up dominated the Dragons with little to no opposition. He hooked people with impunity on Roadhog and then soaked up bullet after bullet with D.Va. This Spitfire team is firing on all cylinders and simply looks like the best team in the league by a sizeable margin going into the final week of Stage 1.
Shows off against Dragons
February 4, 2018
WOOHYAL was incredibly on point with his tank play in the London Spitfire's 4-0 sweep of the Shanghai Dragons on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
WOOHYAL, along with the rest of his team, was on fire in this series from start to finish. He opened up with a dominant 10 eliminations to just one death in the opening games when they held the Dragons to no points whatsoever. As the series went on, the Dragons were simply unable to breach the frontline led by WOOHYAL and were repeatedly knocked down by his teammates in the rough series.
