Philadelphia Fusion
USA
Finds a way to keep his teammates alive
July 21, 2018
Boombox flexed his hero pool in a 3-2 win over the New York Excelsior on Saturday in the Overwatch League Semifinals.
ANALYSIS
Boombox was able to outplay New York's flex player, JJoNak, by simply being more versatile. Where JJoNak struggled outside of Zenyatta and Ana, Boombox was able to play a variety of heroes to compliment any given situation. For example, on Junkertown Boombox's Roadhog was able to shred through New York's defenses against JJoNak's Roadhog. Boombox would also show off his Moira and Lucio on Lijiang Tower, turning the map into a series of bloody and drawn out brawls thanks to his self-sustain and ability to keep his teammates up. Boombox's Zenyatta also found success on maps like King's Row and Dorado as he was able to keep up key players Carpe and Eqo.
Becomes a nuisance for his opponent
July 21, 2018
Carpe constantly harassed his opponents in a 3-2 win over the New York Excelsior on Saturday in the Overwatch League Semifinals.
ANALYSIS
Carpe's Widowmaker and Tracer dominated the series thanks to his team's absurd aggression. Laying down damage from afar, Carpe's Widowmaker was able to constantly pressure New York with ease. Carpe may not have been able to slay out, but he was able to provide key damage to shutdown his opponents. For example, on King's Row Carpe rolled right through New York's defense during his attack round by pushing out to hit flanks and spawns after every kill. This would put New York into awkward and unfavorable positions they couldn't coordinate with. Carpe rarely had to switch off of Widowmaker to Tracer, only doing so to challenge Pine on Lijiang Tower.
Swaps to perfect heroes
July 21, 2018
Eqo led in damage for his team in a 3-2 upset over the New York Excelsior on Saturday in the Overwatch League Semifinals.
ANALYSIS
Eqo's versatility once again saved the Philadelphia Fusion from utter disaster. Playing nearly every DPS hero, he was able to take control of the game by having the perfect hero to slay in any situation. Eqo would mainly stick to Hanzo in order to cause havoc against the New York's tanks with Hanzo's Storm Bow. This allowed Eqo to easily farm Hanzo's ultimate on maps like King's Row, where he was able to throw out a Dragonstrike four separate times on the Fusion's defense to full hold the first point. However, Eqo's key hero would be Pharah on Dorado. Switching to the hero during the Fusion's defense of Point C, Eqo was able to throw out damage with no contest from New York and narrowly win the map.
Destroys opponents

Carpe looked absolutely clean in 3-0 victory over the New York Excelsior in Semifinals playoff on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
The biggest threat for the Excelsior was Saebyeolbe, but Carpe outplayed him in the Widowmaker aspect, rendering him useless in the beginning and end of the series. He also played Brigitte to great effect that threw New York into chaos and showed off his versatility.
Big explosion, big win
July 19, 2018
Hotba squashed the New York Excelsior with a single big ultimate, getting a 3-0 victory in the first Best-of-Five Semifinals set in the playoffs.
ANALYSIS
While the spotlight shone on both Eqo and Carpe, Hotba got a massive Self-Destruct off on D.Va in Oasis, killing four at once. While big ultimate kills are not uncommon in the Overwatch League, the Excelsior were on the verge of winning Oasis, and if they had, a 3-0 would not have happened. Hotba was a hero in Oasis.
