I'm glad they have names and numbers on their shirts, so they're easily identifiable by the referee across a field.

I'm in favour of the client they use for OWL being very different from the normal game, in terms of skins, layout, etc, to help spectators.

Also try not to say "London Spitfire, made up of the two best Korean teams" and based in the US.

Also neat that subs are a thing in OWL. I wonder how long it'll take a team to use one and how that'll effect stuff like team chemistry and morale. (San Fran probably should've subbed-in someone for whoever was playing Mercy for them yesterday.)

It's nice to see a fairly wide range of heroes in use, too. I wouldn't have expected too many Junkrats, Roadhogs, Moiras, or Zaryas, but all four are in play at the moment.

"despite the deluge of damage"

OWL commentators just gotta sneak in as much alliteration as possible.

I wonder what breaks ties in league standings. You've got to imagine, even by season end, there's a good chance of some teams having identical records.

Good question, I don't see quite that much detail on the OWL site. Maybe in the case of tied standings they'll start breaking down each team's individual map records.

Like, there's gonna be a lot of 4-0 or 3-1 victories, but in some cases one of those four maps will have itself ended at like 8-5, like last night's opener, so that's gonna give you a broader statistical base to play with.

Maybe that's also why they always do the full four maps even after a team wins the first three.

Not really a primer exactly, but they've started doing weekly recap videos which are pretty good at breaking down some of the squad tactics and stuff.

I just noticed they have home/away colour variants for all the teams. The Shock's colours are way better with white as the primary and orange the secondary.
