London Spitfire drew first blood in the Overwatch League grand finals with a 3-1 win over Philadelphia Fusion.

More than 10,000 fans packed into the Barclays Center in New York to watch the culmination of the Overwatch League’s inaugural season, and they were treated to an epic first series between London and Philadelphia.

The opening map was Dorado, which induced a degree of déjà vu for the last time Philadelphia played it, against New York Excelsior in the semi-finals. The Fusion opened up with a strong offensive push, but London were able to delay them in stage three such that when they finally secured the last point they had no time left in the bank.

London Spitfire’s own offense was a dominant push for the majority of the map, cruising to the third stage with five minutes remaining. Here, however, the Philadelphia Fusion put up an unbreakable defensive wall, repelling the Spitfire time and time again and ultimately holding all the way to a map win.

Philadelphia’s lead was short-lived though, as London came back strong on Oasis. Some smart compositional choices gave Spitfire an edge, closing the map out in two points to tie the series up at 1-1.

Eichenwalde was another convincing showing for the London Spitfire, holding Philadelphia on the second stage to give themselves an easy target for their own offence. The Fusion held strong on point A for some time, but it wasn’t enough to deny London, who eventually force their way through to a 2-1 win.

The final map of the series was also the most intense, a Volskaya Industries on which both teams put up impressive defensive holds. In the end, it came down to a last-second push for the Spitfire on offence, with Park ‘Profit’ Joon-yeong coming up with five kills in the final fight to end the map and the series in London’s favor.

With that victory, London Spitfire is on match point, needing to win one more series to take the championship. Philadelphia Fusion, meanwhile, will need to win consecutive best-of-fives on Saturday July 28 in order to claim the trophy themselves.

How to use OP Torb turret placement in Overwatch Junkenstein’s Revenge

Junkenstein’s Revenge is one of the best ways to earn loot boxes during Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event, and there are a few spots for Torbjorn’s turret you should probably know about.

Halloween in Overwatch means plenty of new skins to unlock, including the Ragdoll Echo skin, which is now available until the event ends on November 3.

The only way to unlock the DPS hero’s new skin though is to win 9 games in any mode. If you stick to quick play and competitive this could easily take one or even two whole days, but if you simply grind them out in Junkenstein’s Revenge, the wins will only take a couple of hours instead.

Even though the seasonal PvE survival mode goes quicker than regular matches, you can definitely still lose if you don’t have the right team comp. This means that at all difficulty levels, Torbjorn is still a must-pick for his turret and it’s constant damage output.

You won’t get far in the harder difficulties of Junkenstein’s without Torb.

As for where to put this powerful, Zomnic-slaying device, there are several options that all work quite well, and are all fairly easy to pull off too – like on top of the overturned cart right down the middle lane. It has a commanding line of sight for the middle and left staircase spawns, and even covers part of the pond on the right side.

The best part of this spot might be the fact that it’s too close for Zombardiers to immediately target it, and it will hold boss aggro for as long as it’s around.

Next, placing the turret on the railing right on top of the left-hand stairs also gives it a great shot at all three spawns instead of just two, and gives you the ability to run up there and repair it when needed.

Finally, if you’re looking for something extra flashy to really impress your teammates, there’s even a way to get the turret up to the wooden platform just above the door where Widow and Ashe usually hang out.

Like in the clip above, head up the stairs to the right and go on to the platform they lead to (the place we all used to place the turret). Then head to the ledge closest to the door and aim at the ridge on the tower above the platform, straight up from the bush on the right side.

Another option is to jump from the edge and throw it at the apex of Torb’s leap if you have trouble getting it there while standing still. Toss it up, and your little guy is all set to rain down death on the army of undead charging the gates, and hopefully unlock that Echo skin a little bit quicker.
