OWL 2022 to Open with a Bang
The Overwatch League will soon return, bringing fans a glimpse at what competitive Overwatch 2 is going to look like. While the second iteration of the game will bring in some significant changes to the format and the characters, some things, such as the rivalries between players, remain unchanged.
The OWL’s 2022 edition will kick off with a blast, putting the Houston Outlaws and Dallas Fuel against one another. Both franchises are based in the state of Texas and are known for their passionate rivalry. This has earned their matches the title “Battle for Texas.” The upcoming clash will be the fifth such battle.
Mike Rufail, the owner and chief gaming officer of Dallas Fuel’s parent company, Envy Gaming, excitedly spoke about the upcoming game:
“Dallas and Houston have the best rivalry in the Overwatch League, and this is a great way to start the season.”
