The London Spitfire could two-time Overwatch League champions if rumors that they’re looking dominant on the latest patch of the game are true.

For the play-in bracket and playoffs, the Overwatch League will be playing on the Sigma patch. Which means the game’s newest hero will be playable and probably very, very meta. 

Potential league MVP Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won recently told his stream that he expects Sigma to have a 100% pick rate from every team. If that’s not meta, then nothing is.

During an episode of Platchat - a podcast hosted by Overwatch League hosts and former pro Jonathan ‘Reinforce’ Larsson discussed how they’ve heard the Spitfire have been dominating teams.

According to Brennon Hook, the all-Korean Spitfire roster is looking extremely good. (19:28 for mobile viewers)

“My sources have told me Spitfire is actually the best team,” Reinforce added. 

“Why the fuck does this always happen with Spitfire?” Hook asked. “They get tough in playoffs, bro. They get this newfound motivation. They’re just coasting during regular season…”

“Also, very lucky with the meta,” the former Swedish pro once again chimed.

Matt ‘MrX’ Morello then revealed when he talked to the team earlier in the year, they told him they didn’t want to burn themselves out early on and they knew they just needed to be good near the end. “At worst this team, if they mailed it in, were going to be in the play-ins.”

Josh ‘Sideshow’ Wilkinson said that if London can become back-to-back champions then Joon-yeong ‘Profit’ Park and Jae-hee ‘Gesture’ Hong are the best players of all time. The panel also agreed they’d be the best team of all time.

Last year, the London Spitfire came out of nowhere to win the League playoffs and many had written them off after they lost their first game to the LA Gladiators. However, the squad pulled together and crushed teams, including the Fusion in the Grand Finals. 

Profit was named the playoff MVP for his incredible performance. 

The Overwatch League season 2 play-in tournament begin August 30 and 6pm PST.
