They played a close game against the Seoul Dynasty and walked away winners last Wednesday. Last Saturday, they won 3 games to 1 against the Shanghai Dragons. The Valiant’s win against the Dynasty gave them sole possession of 1st place in the Pacific Division, granting them a first-round bye for the postseason.

Last weekend, the Overwatch Contenders, a minor league for the Overwatch League, had their playoffs. Fusion University, the Philadelphia Fusion’s Overwatch Contenders team, was not allowed to wear their jerseys at the Season 1 finals.

This attire change was due to the fact that the team’s jersey had the team’s initials “F” and “U” printed on the front of the jersey.

The Los Angeles Valiant made an impact yesterday with the announcement of a partnership with Microsoft. Together, the LA Valiant and the technology company will host a series of events this year, most likely in Microsoft Store locations around the Los Angeles area. It would also be very exciting if they were to organize viewing parties for those that cannot make it to the Blizzard Arena. In a podcast with the Esports Observer, LA Valiant CEO Noah Whinston mentioned that the Microsoft Theatre would be the tentative home for the LA Valiant in 2020. For those unfamiliar with the Microsoft Theatre, it is housed in the middle of Los Angeles across Staples Center in LA Live where it is owned by another Immortals investor, Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG).
