19 January 2018 They say everything’s bigger in Texas and I bet Dallas Fuel fans wish that was so. Because right now, the supposed “rivalry” with Houston Outlaws – the other OWL representative from the Lone Star state – is anything but. Houston came into their anticipated match-up with the Fuel just 24-hours after stomping the league’s […]

We’re an hour away from Overwatch League’s inaugural Battle for Texas (patent pending), and here are five big questions that should determine who comes out on top. What will Effect’s role be? Monte made a very interesting point about Tracer’s pick rate last night while casting the Shock vs. Fusion match. He noted that she […]

  With one full week in the books, Overwatch League is officially off the ground! The first week featured a handful of exciting matchups and performances, including a memorable back-and-forth between the Fuel and Dynasty on Temple of Anubis and Pine’s insane control point dominance. Teams like the Fuel and Outlaws fell noticeably short of […]

12 January 2018   For my first Overwatch League regular season Player Grades Report, I am going to spotlight the Houston Outlaws, a team who I found to be particularly captivating during the preseason despite coming away win-less. In having to go up against the strongest opponent pairing of any side (Dallas and Seoul), one […]

2017 was a big year in music, with many of the industry’s biggest names releasing records that lived up to expectations (Kendrick Lamar, Vince Staples, Foo Fighters) while others did not (The xx, Arcade Fire). And then there was Taylor Swift, who probably deserves a category unto herself. Unfortunately, some of the best music often […]

The Decision 3.0 Everyone knows that the Cavaliers star forward is going to opt out of his contract this offseason to become an unrestricted free agent, but is there any possibility that James stays put in Cleveland come next season? The Laker storyline is surely being oversold. If Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love weren’t enough […]

You know, it’s not that Dave Grohl doesn’t care about music. That idea would seem preposterous to his zillions of fans. But he wins so often these days that it’s easy to forget what he’s lost: The Colour and the Shape, arguably his best album, came on the heels of his first marriage crumbling in 1997, and Foo Fighters’ 1995 […]

It’s almost Christmas, and with the NBA starting a couple weeks earlier this year, most teams actually have themselves figured out by what used to be (for many) the unofficial start of the season. The Benchmob is feeling the holiday spirit, however, so we’ve put together a wishlist for all 30 teams in the NBA. […]

With the Overwatch League’s inaugural Preseason coming to a close, it feels like just as good a time as any to reflect on each teams’ performances and take inventory on where everyone stands going into the regular season. I’ll be releasing a new set of Power Rankings every Sunday afternoon following that week’s games so […]

Overwatch League’s preseason is now officially in the books after a four-day event that mimicked the anticipated broadcast schedule of the regular season one month from now. We’ve seen it all over the past four days, including Uber dubbing Mercy/Lucio support parings as “Angels and Airwaves,” Mickie shamelessly hyping Jack in the Box, and Soe […]
