The inaugural season of Overwatch League was not lacking in surprises.

‘Expect the unexpected’ should be the theme of this year’s Overwatch League playoffs. From the unexpected benching of all-star Chan-hyung “Fissure” Baek, to Boston taking Philadelphia to its limit, to the Spitfire getting the monkey off their back and advancing in the playoffs, the playoffs have been nothing less of stellar.
