philadelphia fusion 2020

The Overwatch League’s second week is nearly underway. While there are only half as many matches as expected due to the Coronavirus cancellations, this week’s games still look to be as exciting as ever. To get a read on how the matches may turn out, our lead Overwatch writer Connor “GoopyKnoopy” Knudsen is back with his weekly match predictions. He went 6-2 during the league’s opening weekend and looks to keep the momentum going in Week 2 in the City of Brotherly Love.

Florida Mayhem 3-2 Houston Outlaws: MATCH OF THE WEEK

Each of these two teams has undergone a dramatic transformation throughout this past offseason. Houston, however, still has too many unanswered questions to be able to be picked confidently over the Mayhem, although this match looks to be very close on paper. In the end, the edge goes to Florida due to their promising rookie class.

If it goes Houston’s way, keep an eye on the tankline as the reason. Considering D.Va has been played a great deal thus far, Tae-hong “MekO” Kim should be able to have a bigger impact than his counterpart Beom-jun “Gargoyle” Lee. This could be what turns the tide for Houston, but will it be enough?

Washington Justice 0-3 Philadelphia Fusion

First home game of the year paired with some of the top offseason acquisitions of the year should make for a Fusion victory when Saturday rolls around. Washington looks like a team that will be fine throughout the course of 2020, however, they have a tough weekend to open things up. Look for Jun-ho “Fury” Kim and Jae-hyeok “Carpe” Lee to shine bright in this one. The Justice will also be without main tank Lukas “LullSiSH” Wiklund for this match, likely meaning no double barrier options for them.

Washington Justice 1-3 Houston Outlaws

This first weekend may not be the hot start the Justice are looking for, but this match should prove to be closer than their first. Each of these teams are relative unknowns as far as preseason power is concerned, but give the edge to Houston for their star power in players like MekO and João Pedro “Hydration” Goes Telles. Washington, down a main tank, might struggle to keep up in this one but could easily surpirse viewers as well. Either way, this one could be an interesting one to watch, don’t miss it.

Florida Mayhem 1-3 Philadelphia Fusion

The Fusion look too dominant on paper to pick anything else than a dominant win in each of their two matches over the weekend. Florida has to hope they come out and pull a Week 1 Paris Eternal on fans, surprising with stellar DPS play and seasoned coordination. Anything less will likely mean the Fusion take the win on mechanics alone.
