The Los Angeles Gladiators were at it once again, this time versus the Houston Outlaws. Last week was very satisfying against the Atlanta Reign, but it was a different story here, largely in part due to Tracer specialist Danteh. This was the same difference maker when the Glads played Houston last year, with Danteh being the man of the hour.
Reviewing Week 20
Houston Outlaws: 5-10
This week, the Gladiators signed DPS player Kevster, a fresh DPS player who previous played for Team Doge in Overwatch League North American Contenders. The heroes he plays as include Widowmaker, Tracer, Mei and Pharah.
Unfortunately, he did not have the best of debuts, as he nor the rest of the team, was a match for Danteh, This also would be the last week that Sideshow has a contract with Los Angeles, but he in fact was commentary on this match instead.
Here is how this match went down:
Offense wasn’t much of a problem for the Yaters, and were able to fare better against Danteh for the most part. With fundamental team play, they were able to get a better time than Houston on the first runaround. The Gladiators seemed to have better matchups in playing against the same composition as the other team, except for Danteh; the Tracer play of Birdring or Kevster do not compare.
For the second attempt on offense, Kevster was able win a pivotal team fight on the path to Point A. At the last moments, Houston comes back and Danteh flanks the Gladiators, stopping their push. On Houston’s second go at offense, they were able to get past LA’s stopping point fairly easily. Outlaws pull away 2-0.
Previewing Week 21

Washington Justice: 3-12
