Since the inception of the Overwatch League, New York Excelsior have been at the forefront and once again secured first place. They defeated the Boston Uprising to reach the top of Stage 3 and defend their title as the world's largest Overwatch League team
The Overwatch League Stage 3 final began with the semi-finals: Boston vs. the LA Gladiators and New York Excelsior against LA Valiant. While the LA Gladiators were certainly a worthy opponent, Boston was the superior team that proved the predictions from their desks and beat the gladiators 3-0. Striker, a DPS player from Boston, was named player of the game in this match because he avoided death most. He only died once on Map 2 and Map 3.
In the second match of the night, NYXL went against LA Valiant, and it was a second boost for the predicted winner NYXL. They quickly secured three cards against Valiant. In this match, the game was the game Meko, one of the best defensive players in the league, which was honored for its excellent use of D.Va and their self-destruct ability. While many fans hoped for a representation in LA in the final, it was the top two teams in the league, Boston and New York.
The games between Boston and New York were incredibly close despite the 3-0 final. Boston managed to score two points on Route 66, but stumbled on Nepal, giving it a 2-0 lead. On Volskaya, the game's assault card, NYXL managed to catch up with Boston and stop the flawless series that Boston had at this stage after winning their last five games on Volskaya
While it's always exciting watching professional games Overwatch League sometimes manages to take it to a whole new level. The sheer level of skill shown by all teams, especially NYXL and Boston, is absolutely incredible, and players know it all too well. After winning the game that decided the series against Boston, Saebyeoble, NYXPS Best DPS Player, said, "I'm the best tracer in the world." This was previously in doubt when Boston defeated NYXL in the regular season earlier in the third phase. After tonight, there is no doubt who the best player for Overwatch's poster hero is.
