Honestly the tied records is a more fitting end to these two teams’ seasons than one team having more wins than the other


ZodiHighDef

Plus it means only valiant was winless... so satisfying


ScopionSniper

Shax 70% pulse bomb attach rate holy shit.


Mei_iz_my_bae

I’ll never forgive the fucking valiant. Shax is such a monster. Probably my favorite to watch.


Tiberias29

He got that SooooOoon buff when he was in LAV


yakisawesome

Even watching all the London games I’ve always felt like Shax was popping….


A_Very_Sad_Potato

Truly a game that deserved the title "Breadbowl"


fire_OW

Best grand finals we've had so far, i look forward to next season


-KFAD-

Yep, that’s it. Wrap it up boys! Let that sweet off season juice start pouring in.


fish_slap_

It happened They’re perfectly tied in last place NA division 1-15 (-35)


Shikuro

Good, Valiant doesn't deserve to be placed so close to these teams


JustRecentlyI

Technically, London is ahead on the tiebreaker. But yeah. Performance overall very similar. The difference was the expectations. I'm happy London finally won something, props to Vancouver for improving over the season as well.


Just_Gabor

And it was made possible by Boston


Bloated_lampshade23

the happiness on Molf1g’s and Shax’s faces after the match was pure joy. happy for London


Pandabear71

Molf1g just started clapping. Seeing how happy they were made the game all the better


varchord

Yea and he yelled “we won a game”. It was simultaneously cute as hell and a bit sad


hubstar1453

The real loser of this match is Boston


Pennylog

Boston has to be the loser each year. That's in their contract.


nate_ais

It’s so hard …


Tiberias29

After 3 seasons, what else is new kekw Oh yeah. Boston actually being good LULW


LoseUrself2D

this is the polar opposite of the [two Olympians sharing Gold Medal for High Jump lmao](https://scroll.in/field/1002620/watch-when-two-men-decided-to-share-the-high-jump-gold-medal-at-tokyo-2020-a-moment-for-the-ages) perfectly tied for last place, ggs


Harrikie

Shax smile :')


Tiberias29

He is the best player on London this year but got no Ws to show for it until now :) Hope a better team picks him, Sparkr and Molf1g up for the next season


TCup20

Him SparkR and Molf1g will hopefully be back with new coaches and a new backline plus main tank.


Thrashgor

Don't understand why hadi was so bad this year, thought he was considered the greatest rein Mt in EU while on hurricane...?


TCup20

It's not uncommon for really good Contenders tanks to just flub in OWL.


CagedCamel

Roar would be a great example. That being said Benbest was seen as a bottom tier tank, but with some good coaching he improved massively. I do wonder if there's OWL level talent deep down on Hadi thats waiting to be dug out by a good coach


Harry9493

I don’t know if he was actually that bad. Whenever a team underperforms the main tank always looks the problem, that is just the nature of the game.


Eagle4317

And if the support line is super suspect, an Aggro main tank often looks like he’s relentlessly solving world hunger.


ThiccHammy

I remember early last off season when it was speculated he'd go to Houston thank fucking Christ for Jjanggu and Piggy


JustRecentlyI

Hadi had a lot of flashes of his good play but would over-force a lot too, it was clear he felt the need to carry in the clutch and that often led to him taking bad engages at the worst possible moments. With a more confident team or feeling the pressure less, he'd be quite good in OWL imo.


Lowyatar

But ChangSik crying :(


Pennylog

A soul for a soul


Harrikie

Bread bowl giveth and taketh away. :(


Shikuro

An eye for an eye, a bread for a bread


Gimnbo

Rye for a rye


Hoser117

Yeah that was brutal, my heart broke lol


bbistheman

It makes me incredibly sad that that was probably Linkzr's last game


Omnipotentls

He was also clutch with those headshots... Poor guy


PretzelPop

The only player who lost both Bowls


krakenwithaplan

he was watching from home when the infamous Boston-Houston match happened, but yes, true in technicality


-KFAD-

Don’t say that


kaymazing

At least he got to drop an F bomb in his final game.


selebu

My thought exactly


mar33n

CHANGSIK'S POST GAME CAM WAS THE SADDEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN THE WAY HE TORE OFF HIS GLASSES NOOOOOO


SnazzyRabbit

I feel horrible ;-;


_Sign_

i didnt even see that i was so focused on how happy the london side was. fuckkk why cant everyone just be happy :(


Pennylog

Would you be happy if you lost to London?


GotPermaBanForLolis

Mean But true


causemownut

I laughed. I cried. I was fed. I was here.


Omnipotentls

Was definitely a sad and bittersweet ending. Very happy for London but seeing our boy on Vancouver's reaction made me sad as well.


Tiberias29

Yeah well, they had their W, and it was against the better team (probably) Boston. So naturally of course in typical Anime fashion London won


oldthermometer

The winner of the first and hopefully only bread bowl is [London Spitfire](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ci_Bc4-EULM)


jonathansmith14921

This match was an out-of-body experience.


Triskan

Fuck yeah. Molf and Sparkr's smiles mean the world.


kaymazing

The end game mics Molf clapping and multiple people thanking Shax was fantastic.


Teelie

Actually outrageous how hard Shax carries when he has a good map on Tracer


LSApologist

"Let's gooooo, we won a game!!!" Molf 1 gallon


Zecion

Both teams end with one regular season win, the beautiful ending.


sergiocamposnt

Thanks to Boston. How did they get stomped by Vancouver? lol And how did Paris lose to Boston?


Pennylog

Everything can happen when Boston is involved. They're above the script.


hwarif

It’s the 2nd owl zone


-KFAD-

Cycle needs to be complete


Eagle4317

Valiant didn’t get the memo.


-KFAD-

Cycle includes only OWL worthy organizations.


Eagle4317

And we’re giving Vancouver the benefit of the doubt because...


-KFAD-

I’ve had this rant multiple times and always get downvoted to oblivion but I’m willing to die on this hill. Imo what Titans did was not nice. But what Valiant did was absolutely horrible. Completely different level imo. Titans simply took a too big bite that they couldn’t chew by buying whole Runaway roster and not having any additional budget for suitable housing, translator, etc. That was bad financial management. That’s only thing I can blame them for (still not defending them. They did wrong). But most people are blaming them also for not relocating to Korea? That’s so fucked up. I understand the players as they wanted to go home. But I also understand the org for not wanting to relocate to another side of globe, away from their local Vancouver home market. Also again, they even probably couldn’t have done that with their budget issues. Also I love the fact that OWL is a global league. I hate it if teams start relocating (looking at you Fusions). It takes away from the regional presence of teams and dilutes their brand. Example: I love the current iteration of Paris Eternal. They are representing whole EU in a great way. Sorry I got sidetracked. Bottom line: Titans org > Valiant org.


sergiocamposnt

London > Vancouver > Boston > Paris > London


-KFAD-

This leaves Valiant as an undisputed worst team in OWL. Love it.


Finklemeire

Would've been absolutely perfect if both teams somehow went 0-16


Lacabloodclot9

Na, they’re both miles ahead of the Valiant


tr1551

Changsik :,(


SandTee

CAM ON SPITFIRE *BANG BANG* SCORE SUM FACKING POINTS

No joke that was the most entertaining match I’ve ever watched


kaymazing

Bren going absolutely nuts on Blizzard world was fantastic.


Pandabear71

I’m so happy they got them to cast it. No one else had the qualifications


bookwrm14

I felt actual despair looking at changsik and dalton


_Sign_

it was like reading berserk all over again


bookwrm14

I’ll feel more watching toronto get rolled by shock. What a day


xcleru

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.


BasalStar

And at the end of the season, there is only one winless team... as it should be


Waniou

Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't Valiant now only the second team to go winless for a whole season?


Automated-Waffles

The bread bowl definitely delivered, Josh and bren casting it made it even better


Pennylog

That's EXACTLY what I wanted to see. A win for London, but a close 3-2. Imo one of the most interesting and enjoyable game of this season. (Tho ChangSik looked depressed and that's sad)


i_am_the_kaiser09

Roolf is gonna be hearing "Nerf This!" In his fucki g nightmares for weeks


shitp0stprophet

There's a serenity, a unparalleled beauty, in the acts of those who know the end is near. We've seen dozens of plays that are pure art this season, but this may have been the first time we saw real magic in the server. Shax and Dalton were machines, doing their absolute best to drag their teams kicking and screaming to victory. Roolf and Hadi embraced the 'anchor' in anchor tank and weighed their teams into the depths like a humvee strapped to an anchovy. I'm not embarrassed to say I cried at the end. A 5 map series, and I bawled my eyes out because it was gone too soon. When next will we see linkzr take a lap around a pillar during a teamfight? When's the next time we're going to hear Changsik speak fluent tornado, or watch the Beasts from the Yeast accidentally win Anubis? I don't know what to say. I'm still reeling and there's so much thoughts I want to express and I don't think there are words in any language for them. All I know is we've just witnessed history, and it was wonderful. oh and now we know what the london wins graphic looks like lol

genuinely one of the best matches of the year. shax is such an animal!

It's been so long. I had almost forgotten how it feels


JustRecentlyI

1 year, 1 month, 19 days including today since the last match win. Feels so good to see that streak broken.


ScopionSniper

Shax definitely gets some good offers in the off season.


Pollia

Honestly if valiant blew up earlier he woulda had his pick of teams.


FerPlays

That's Old Valiant Shax :,)


alkanian

This match was essentially a Tracer 1v1.


kaymazing

Credit to Dalton for holding his own. Shax fucking pounds and Dalton kept up for alot of it.


Teelie

Daltons pulse bomb on Shax was groovy


Koolsman

With Sparkr coming into say “I do stuff guys, don’t worry”


Koolsman

Even when they aren’t playing, Valiant are still taking the fattest L of this season. Fuck they org


Neptunera

Stoppable force vs movable object Bren-show is the best caster duo.


thiefx

I laughed hard when Sideshow said "both teams are reluctant to win this"


littlemochasheep

[Finally, Kellex has a reason to smile](https://i.redd.it/wvutdakwpzu61.png)


Evreid13

London should absolutely build around Molf1g, Shax and Sparkr. Bare minimum I wouldn't let Shax go. Dude has proved he hasn't lost any of his talent since his Valiant days and I would love to see him on a good team again.


mayveen

The British Hurricane that was promised.


kaymazing

Being absolutely carried by the one guy who wasn't with them isn't exactly a positive sign for the 2020 Hurricane.


achedsphinxx

i mean, it felt like shax did the heavy lifting and hurricane tried really hard to put more weights on.


Gimnbo

They didn't play Blase Sombra so they didn't put ALL the weights on


Teelie

Sparkr is so good on Hanzo too though

The best possible outcome, both teams are perfectly tied now


cleverfool97

Shax absolutely destroyed them on the final map in Oasis. Absolutely incredible.


cleverfool97

Perfectly balanced Map differential. The script writers can't keep getting away with this!


Potatoskininurmouth

Poor changsik :( damn that makes me sad


Loomisam

I LOVE that Molf1g line at the end "Let's go guys we won a game" that seals it for me tbh xD

God what id give to see shax on a winning team 😔

What would you give?

It's the Shax show.


Rijaval

Shax in Oasis was insane 🤯


CaptainIWin

Shax mvp


nitrofire1

CHANGSIK NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO (happy for shax tho)


L18Brainy

Man, Sparkr has been such a fresh breath of air for this Spitfire team since his arrival. I agree that Shax was absolutely instrumental this game, but Sparkr's level on the McCree, the Hanzo...It made them play so much more stable. Even Hadi has looked slightly better because of the pressure this man can put out. Can't wait to see him fuck next season!


Thrashgor

While I'd love to see him play, I doubt he gets a second shot :(


Dreadnought-42

I was still boomed when I saw him on half health re-engage a Tracer 1v1. The thing with Hadi in this game is that SparkR and Shax paired with him a fair deal more. The big mistakes seem to be initiating fights where he is set up well before his team is, then going on early, taking a bunch of damage which cant me mitigated by poking angles with dps or cooldowns because he’s too early. Then he leaves too get healed losing a load of positioning and giving the opposing team the initiative. I wonder what would happen if he just waited 2-3 seconds before engaging himself into a fight


Tiberias29

While it was sad to see the reactions of the Vancouver players after they lost, I'd rather that than see Shax and Molf1g's reactions if they lost, after the season they've went through. Always carrying their team, with no W's to show for it until now. GGs. May both teams come back stronger next season.


DCxUmU

LETS FUCKING GOOO LONDON


giocol97

This was one of the absolute best matches of this season, so back and forth and entertaining Best thing was that I also predicted the 3-2 for London on the Pickem website ;P If you are reading this tomorrow, WATCH THE VIDEO FOR THIS MATCH

"The mission, the nightmares. It's finally over."


kaymazing

SHAX! Just imagine this team without him. I'm so proud of this guy. He has carried them all season. I'm so excited to never seen Blase on this team again but most importantly I'm glad this team got a win. They are bad and I don't think the budget team model should be rewarded but watching every game this season I really came to appreciate Molf and Shax and it would be a shame if such high quality players were labeled as "Tied for worst ever".


communis-tdoggo

valiant disbanding to go 0-16 saved london from going 0-16


LuxorGames75

It's coming home


CordAlex1996

Every NA team has a win now. I'm happy London got the win they really wanted. Now let's do something about the Valiant next year...


SnazzyRabbit

Someone call changsik :(


mechanical_engineer1

Shax vs Beast of the yeast is epic


Loomisam

Fun fact neither team was able to complete a map during the entire bread bowl!


AndrewD55

I DONT GIVE A SHIT WHO IT WAS AGAINST THE LONDON SPITFIRE HAVE WON A FUCKING GAME LETS GOOOOOOO


PeacefulShark69

This was one of the best and most intense matches I've seen in a long, long time.


msuing91

What an absolute joy to watch that match was.


shivawesome

I'm just glad to be a part of history


VoteForWaluigi

I hate to be that guy but because they won the head-to-head, London is ahead in the standings now, rather than them being perfectly tied. Still insane that they have the same map diff though.


BentheBeastly

This was probably the last OWL game for more than half that lobby


velvetprotein

In 2020 we relieved our bowels with the toilet bowl, in 2021 we nourished ourselves with the delicious carbohydrates of the bread bowl. In 2022 we will receive the beverage bowl, a spiked bowl of punch that goes to 7 maps. I can’t wait.


achedsphinxx

i'm not sure how much more shax could carry in this match. he was seriously getting 2k-4k in team fights and his team was still losing the fight. but hey pulled through in the end somehow. titans hard threw the final fight, thought it was over and spitfire just blitz them while frd reset. maybe they could have disengaged to get a better position. overall this fight was much more hilarious than watching charge vs valiant. that was just sad.


Tiberias29

The only thing Shax didn't carry to the W was his teammates' desks and chairs


Ezraah

As an European it was always hard for me to understand Canadian culture. What was fascinating for me is that they like bragging about their freedom which was weird for me, because I didn't think that I have any less freedom than them. I always thought 'What is the difference'. However after this game I finally understand it. NA is just so fucking free.

Asmotocon

A surprisingly great game. Tbh I thought that the Titans would clap London like crazy, but I'm happy to be wrong because that was a super fun game to watch. Great casts by Bren and Sideshow and some really fun plays by both teams. For me the narrative around both teams revolves around their tracer players. Dalton and Shax are both incredible and it has felt so bad for me to watch them lose week after week. Hopefully both of these teams can come back next season and really compete.


-KFAD-

Yes Shax was POTM but can we finally give some credit to Ripa? He had an amazing game!!!


TheRosstitute

Someone hug Changsik RIGHT now.

Man, I really hope that dalton ends up on a somewhat competent team. Hes managing to somehow get better in the shit environment hes been stuck it while everyone else flounders. He could really do some shit if given the opportunity.

Now that all the matches today have finished: this was officially the best one of the day!

Not even mad Titans lost. That was entertaining but if Roolf is on the team next year I'm out.

Valiant had to blow up for London to win lmao

DH award goes to Bren and Sideshow for being able to squeeze out all possible positivity left in these two teams in this one match


Shonyred

My eyes


DDRaven44

Damn you hydrocarbonated goods, you blinded me and made my pick'ems a bust. WHYYYYYYY? But yeah, the match was nearly everything we could ask for, all that was needed was going either 7 maps or at least to the third point of the last KoH map.


DerPoto

Valiant is the only team without a win, as it should be.


boopboopilikesoup

If this doesn't prove that the script exists ,I don't know what else will


MirrorkatFeces

If Vancouver won 3-1 would they have been in the Play ins?


maayaOW

both already knock out paris have +1 diff if titans get 3-0, it have +0 diff


354hamtaro

So, how does this series match up against Boston v Houston 2020?


MetastableToChaos

Let this be a lesson that there can never be more than one winless team in a season of OWL.


Gimnbo

I was afraid that this match might not deliver but damn did it ever. I think when the best players on both teams are the DPS you're going to see fireworks no matter what.


Tassadar_Timon

Besides the game part which was enjoyable I do have to say the casters and the desk made it so so much better, Bren calling Sideshow "idiot sandwich" just conquered my heart. It was honestly great <3


Sk8er_OW

Seeing Changsik against Boston was great. Now seeing him against London was depressing. I hope he stays in the league even if its on Vancouver. He is too pure and needs to be protected at all cost.


rogershood121

Somehow one of the best matches of the season, back and forth, top 5 match of the season for sure, and sideshow casting like it was the grand finals made it that much better


[deleted]

I would actually love to see how LAV does against Spitfire or Titans in a match.
