The Overwatch League's first day of competition kicked off with hundreds of thousands tuning in on Twitch to watch a slightly tuned up broadcast; OWL's experienced commentating crew; and two boring, lopsided opening games. Both the Los Angeles Valiant and the Los Angeles Gladiators steamrolled their opponents (San Francisco and Shanghai, respectively) without much resistance or flair, save for some nifty Doomfist play from the Gladiators' Hydration. With the mighty Seoul Dynasty (formerly known as Lunatic-Hai) closing out the day, there was reason to worry that the League's first day might go by without a single close game or at least some tactical intrigue.
