It has all led to this. The London Spitfire and Philadelphia Fusion have earned their way to the Barclay Center, and it's time to see who is the best team in the league. The Grand Finals series will be the best of three, with one game that has taken place tonight, and the other two (or possibly only one) will take place tomorrow night.
The night began at Dorado, with Philly on the first attack. They chose a double sniper, destroying ball comp, which did not work well against the Triple Tank, a double sniper fortress that London used. Philadelphia then switches from Reinhardt / Zarya to Winston / D.Va that worked much better. They struck at the end, but eventually made it to the finish line.
London came out of the gates of Dorado much stronger. It made way through the map way cleaner and it looked like they would take the map. However, Philadelphia had different ideas. They exchanged the gears a little and held strong at the last point. The merger managed to hold it down and take the first map 3-2.
Map 2 went to Oasis and was much less equal. Out of the gates at point A, London Spitfire took a convincing team battle. They would bring it to 1
Eichenwalde was next time, with Philadelphia again on the attack. The crime replaced Boombox for Poko, who gave Fusion three Tank players and just one healer. This creativity worked for them in New York in the semifinals, but it did not work against Spitfire. They were only able to do it through the first choke. This meant that London just had to make it where Philly stopped and they managed to do it quite easily.
The match took place at Volskaya, and London Spitfire kept the Philadelphia Fusion very well. They could only get the first cross on Point B. London had difficulty getting the first cross, but eventually did.
London has officially taken the first chart in the Grand Finals series. There were so many good games tonight so if you do not have it, take a look at VOD at OverwatchLeague.com.
Tomorrow's game begins at 16.00 EST on Twitch, ESPN and Disney XD.
