Overwatch League matches are played across four maps, and usually the result is a win or loss in those four maps. More often than not it's a 4-0 sweep, or a decisive 3-1. You can even tie on certain maps, leading to score lines such as week 1's Dallas v. Seoul game that ended 2-1. But every now and then a game goes to map five, as OWL matches don't end in ties.

That was the case in Thursday's thrilling Los Angeles-Los Angeles match between the Valiant and the Gladiators, which came down to a winner-take-all final point. The Gladiators came out swinging with a 2-0 start, but the Valiant battled back and took it to a fifth map at 2-2, threatening to pull off a reverse sweep.
