Philadelphia Fusion
USA
Released by Fusion
September 3, 2018
Dayfly was one of three player released by the Philadelphia Fusion on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
The rarely seen support player will now be looking for a new team after being released by the Fusion this weekend. He was fresh on a playoff appearance after not showing up since March, but it seems that his performance didn't inspire much confidence in his team and he's now on the hunt for a new home.
Parts ways with Philadelphia
September 3, 2018
ShaDowBurn was released from the Philadelphia Fusion on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Following the avalanche of roster moves to hit the airwaves this week, ShaDowBurn was yet another player to be released from his team. He wasn't the only one to be released from the Fusion, though, as Joemeister and DayFly were also released this week. ShaDowBurn's release might seem a bit surprising on the surface, but when you consider that he didn't play much in the second half of the season, it becomes a much clearer picture. The Fusion are clearly comfortable with EQO as their main DPS and now ShaDowBurn will be on the hunt for a new team in Season 2.
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.
