The season's free agency signing window opened on January 22, , and closed on April 3, the start of Stage 3. During this period, teams could sign any eligible free agent player or make trades with other teams.
Any player on a new team contract before the start of Stage 2 on February 21, was eligible to play during Stage 2.
Otherwise, they had to wait until the start of Stage 3. After April 3, team rosters could not be changed until after the completion of the post-season games.
The post-season playoffs were held over three weeks in July It was a single-elimination playoff featuring 6 teams: each division leader, and the next top four teams from both divisions, with their position seeded by their standings.
All matches in the inaugural season except for the Grand Finals were played at the seat Blizzard Arena, located on the former soundstage for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson in Burbank, California.
The Grand Finals were played at Barclays Center in New York City, where all 11, seats available were sold out for both days of the event.
Pre-season matches were held from December 6 to 8, Pre-season matches are exhibition only, and do not count towards the regular season standings.
The Philadelphia Fusion had to pull out of pre-season play just before these events, citing "player logistics issues".
The Overwatch League began the season with a two-year exclusive contract for Overwatch League broadcasting. Its debut week held an overall peak of , concurrent viewers on its three Twitch channels, with , English, 65, Korean, and 11, French viewers.
On the first day of the season playoffs, Disney and Blizzard announced a multi-year partnership that would bring the league and other professional Overwatch competitive events to ESPN , Disney XD , and ABC , starting with the playoffs and throughout all of the following season.
At the end of Stages 1 and 2, the top three teams overall in the current stage, regardless of division, made the stage playoffs. The first seeded team earned a bye, with the second and third seeded teams playing a best-of-5 series to advance to the stage finals.
Beginning with Stage 3 of the season, Blizzard announced changes to the Stage Playoff format. Introduced was a four-team Stage playoffs going forward, so that both teams in the final match will have played the same number of games on that day.
The first seed has the option of selecting their opponent for the first round and has home team advantage, with the remaining two teams assigned based on seed ranking.
These stage playoffs have no effect on overall standings and are only for bonus prize money. Teams' overall standings were used for placement in the post-season playoffs.
The top team of each division received an automatic bye, while the next top four teams, regardless of division, filled in the remaining tournament slots.
Stage 1 ran from January 10, to February 10, , with Stage playoffs occurring on February 10, Source: Overwatch League. With a league best 9—1 stage record, the New York Excelsior earned a bye directly into the stage finals.
In the semifinal match, the Houston Outlaws took an early 1—0 lead over the London Spitfire, but were ultimately defeated 3—1.
In the stage final, the New York Excelsior took a commanding 2—0 lead over the Spitfire, but New York could not secure their third match win.
The London Spitfire completed a reverse sweep, winning the series 3—2 and their first stage title. Stage 2 ran from February 21 to March Following Stage 1, Blizzard took input from players and fans and moved all future Stage playoff matches to Sunday, with Stage 2's playoffs taking place on March This avoided a twelve-hour day of matches, which could see a team playing as many as three different matches in the same day.
The New York Excelsior finished with the best stage record again, earning another bye into the stage finals. The semifinal match featured the London Spitfire, looking to repeat on their Stage 1 championship, against the Philadelphia Fusion.
The Fusion won the series, 3—2. Both teams lost their first match; both teams have the potential to become one of the better teams in the league.
Each team has great talent with TviQ and Logix for the Mayhem and Striker and DreamKazper for the Uprising. Speaking of DreamKazper, he really showed his star potential throughout this match.
He proves he can be fairly versatile as a proficient Genji, as well as a more than competent Roadhog. Anytime the Boston Uprising enter the Blizzard Arena, DreamKazper will be someone to look out for.
While the Shanghai Dragons were in a better place against the San Francisco Shock, but still failed to get the win in the end. They did execute some plays that helped the team garner some success and also managed to win game 2 of their match, but the Shock was just the better team.
The Shanghai Dragons did find some success with their offensive player Undead who exemplified some brilliant Widowmaker accuracy on the Horizon map, as well as some great Soldier 76 play on Numbani.
The San Francisco Shock find a star player in Danteh as a prominent force on the team. Specifically, we saw a notable performance from him on Ilios as he saw numerous eliminations to secure the win on the control map.
London Spitfire was the obvious favorite to win the match and they did not disappoint. Matches like this — ones that are completely one-sided — are not fun to watch, like any real sport.
Unless your team is the one that is destroying its opponent, watching a shutout is boring. Seeing this performance does get me excited to see the London Spitfire play next week as they take on two of the best western teams, Dallas Fuel and Los Angeles Valiant.
Well, maybe not. The Widowmaker duels between the two were some of the most entertaining bouts throughout the entire week. The Philadelphia Fusion have a man roster of multiple nationalities and languages, leaving synergy as a major concern.
That leadership will be key for a fairly young roster, as they look to build on any early momentum.
Overall, a lack of talent appears to hurt Boston, yet they also have the flexibility to add quality pieces during the trading window.
