Dallas’ Head Coach, Aero

Aaron “Aero” Atkins, Head Coach of the Dallas Fuel joined the OWLs Nest to chat with Robbie and Jake. He shared his opinions of what makes the rivalry between the Dallas Fuel and the Houston Outlaws so engaging. We also talk to him about Gui-un “Decay” Jang’s amazing Widowmaker performance Rialto where the Fuel set a new fastest attack time. Aero also discussed the challenges that both coaches and players face on a week to week basis under the Hero PoolsBans.

May Melee Tournament

Robbie and Jake also discuss the May Melee Tournament format and how it compares to the regular season format that’s been used for the majority of the season. Viewership was up across platforms and among the social media response, many fans were highly engaged. Even from the perspective of the teams, many performed at a higher standard than they have weeks prior. Has Blizzard and the Overwatch League found a new format in the Tournament style? With over half of the 2020 season behind us, they also take a look at two teams and their future in the league. Between the Shanghai Dragons and the San Francisco Shock, Jake says this is the match-up everyone wants to see. Based on their performances thus far, it’s a likely bet that the eventual grand finals will be between these two teams.
