Recap

Dorado

San Francisco Shock started on attack and ran into an impressive Philadelphia Fusion defence. They stalled well on Point A and effectively shut down their opponents during the streets phase. Carpe did some good work in the Shock backline as Fusion set an achievable target.

If Philly thought their defence was impressive then it was nothing compared to what Shock produced. They had Danteh on Junkrat and Babybay on McCree as they operated mostly within the room to the far back left of the point. Carpe and Shadowburn just couldn’t flank and hurt their opponents as San Francisco full held on the first point.

Temple of Anubis

It was a case more of a poor Shock attack than an impressive Fusion defence on Anubis. They grabbed Point A but just failed to take advantage of the openings when they were there as Shock failed to take a tick on Point B.

Fusion pushed well, grabbing Point A despite Carpe’s Genji getting caught in a Junkrat trap despite using Dragonblade. The Fusion’s DPS duo eventually switched onto the preferred heroes as Shadowburn went on a 15 player kill streak with Genji as they took the map.

Oasis

Shock did well as they grabbed a 1-0 lead on City Centre before it went to Gardens and we saw a Babybay versus Shadowburn Pharah battle. The Fusion undoubtedly came out on top as they took the round 100-0 to equalise.

Both sides started with a triple-tank setup with Sleepy running a Moira for Shock. They initially grabbed the point but Fusion, and more specifically Carpe’s McCree, held to take the map.

Eichenwalde

Shock flew through Point A but some fine holding from Philadelphia Fusion ate up some of the time San Francisco had banked. It came down to the final push for Shock but a smart switch onto Junkrat from Babybay helped them complete the map in overtime.

Fusion just steamrolled through Eichenwalde. They grabbed Points A and B with ease and some smart switches on the home stretch really helped them out. A brief stall from Shock was countered by some fine tank play as they waited for their high-value ultimates to charge before completing the map with two minutes to spare.

Fusion couldn’t quite take the final point but the draw means they grabbed the match.

MVP – Poko. This guy’s D.Va ultimates are just incredible. It’s so important in team fights to regularly get a couple of kills with an ultimate which few teams value. Shadowburn, Carpe and Babybay also played well but were far more inconsistent.
