In Week 11, the scheduling for the Overwatch League will look a bit familiar for longtime fans. Matches will be spread out onto Thursday and Friday evenings along with the Chinese teams playing on the weekend. With McCree, Widowmaker, Reinhardt, and Brigitte banned for this week’s games, you can count on teams to run bulky DPS with double shield in the absence of their usual long-range options.

Matches To Watch Out For In Week 11
Dallas and San Francisco play each other for the first time since Week 1, where the series went to a Game 5 before San Francisco won. The Fuel has come to rely more on Doha and Decay to take charge of whatever situation they find themselves in. With San Francisco surprisingly willing to change up who gets playtime, they need a solid starting lineup to contain Dallas’ DPS players. Sinatraa has not had as much playtime as we’re used to seeing, so maybe he can bring something more to the struggling Shock right now.
The two Los Angeles teams play each other, with the Gladiators’ new DPS players finally having proved their worth and the Valiant settling down on a squad revolving around their three Koreans; Dreamer, Lastro, and Rain. The Valiant’s main strength DPS-wise is KSP and KSF’s hitscan abilities, so they should be dampened.
And finally, we have Boston Uprising vs. Toronto Defiant. This may be another edition of what the casters have been calling “El Classico,” except that Toronto still has far superior talent to Boston.
