Eight teams competed in the Season Two playoffs of Overwatch League with a $3.5 million prize pool on the line.

The teams competed across the entire month of September in a double elimination bracket before the final two teams made their way to the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. 

The reigning champions London Spitfire were eliminated early in their quest to repeat as champions, dropping to New York Excelsior 4-1 in the first round, and then getting swept by the San Francisco Shock in the losers’ round.

That 4-0 Shock win sparked a magical run for the San Francisco squad after getting stunned by the Atlanta Reign in a seven map upset in the first round. The Shock went an unbelievable 16-0 in the playoffs’ lower bracket, with four straight 4-0 wins against the Spitfire, LA Gladiators, Hangzhou Spark, and then NY Excelsior. 

That run earned them a spot in the grand finals against the Vancouver Titans.

While not winning via any sweeps, the Titans still dominated their competition and went undefeated in the upper bracket. They put down the Seoul Dynasty, the Gladiators, and NYXL to book their tickets to Philly.

The Shock took map one with two straight captures on Lijiang Tower, riding the shoulders of their MVP sinatraa. Despite a dominant SF half, the Titans responded to force overtime on Eichenwalde. But the Shock won overtime on a last second capture to take a 2-0 lead.

Both teams completed their attacks on Anubis, forcing another overtime, but Shock dominated their overtime attack, again led by sinatraa, to go up 3-0 and set up championship point. Shock dominated their payload attack on Watchpoint Gibraltar, and held off the Titans’ attack to take their fourth map and the championship in their fifth straight playoffs sweep.

Black Ops Cold War may have only just launched but major competitions are already underway as some of the biggest names in Call of Duty joined up for a huge $50,000 Twitch Rivals showdown.

Twitch Rivals hosts some of the biggest online esports events out there. Gathering a mix of marquee streamers on the platform and some of the top pro players, they’re always huge events.

The latest installment put CoD in the spotlight thanks to the release of Black Ops Cold War. As players grow familiar with maps, modes, and weapons, some of the best competitors jumped right into tournament play.

From Nadeshot to 2020 World Champion Clayster and plenty more, many of the biggest names were involved. If you missed any of the action, we’ve got you covered with a complete rundown on the latest Twitch Rivals event.

Once teams were drafted, it was time for the unique event to properly get underway. Divided into four sections, every squad had to play through two series across a variety of modes. Hardpoint, VIP Escort, Domination, and SnD were all in focus.

Opening rounds were simple best of ones, though the playoffs saw teams competing over a possible three maps. Some were more lopsided than others. Clayster blitzed through former partners on Simp’s team when it came to Hardpoint. Meanwhile, the opposite occurred when things switched to Domination, as Simp’s team won that portion without dropping a map.

It was a closely contested event right until the very end. Clayster, Simp, and Scump all led their teams to a single playlist win. It came down to SnD where Scump’s team took home the final remaining victory.

The Cold War Twitch Rivals event took place on Monday, November 23 for North American talent. Things kicked off at 3PM PT | 6PM ET and ran through most of the evening.

While individual players were streaming their own perspectives, a dedicated broadcast was hosted by CDL talent Miles Ross, Thomas ‘Chance’ Ashworth, and Lottie Van-Praag. We’ve embedded this below for your convenience.

This particular event followed a unique format. At first, four captains selected their teammates from a pool of pro players and popular streamers. Once rosters were locked in, there were four unique brackets to play through, one for each mode.
