Viewership peaked at 415k.

If day one of Overwatch League is any indication of how the inaugural season is going to play out then we’re in for a treat. While the first 2 matches resulted in both Los Angeles teams sweeping the floor with their opponents 4-0, Dallas Fuel and Seoul Dynasty wrapped the night up with an impressive show of skill.

The matchup started slowly with the two teams going 3-2 in Junkertown, the highlight of which was a RIP-Tire ult denial using Ana’s Biotic Grenade from Dynasty’s Ryujehong. Dallas walked away with the first win, but the pace picked up at Temple of Anubis. Both teams started off strong, taking the objectives with ample time left on the clock. Both teams managed two successful attack rounds before Seoul began to put the pressure on Dallas. Fleta’s Widowmaker and Genji plays stole the spotlight and helped secure their first win against Dallas, 6-5. Seoul continued their winning streak on Ilios with a fast 2-0 victory, before the night ended with a draw on Numbani. Since a draw doesn’t reward either team with a point, Seoul Dynasty walked away the victors with a 2-1 record.

During the explosive matchup, esports commentator and director of Twitch marketing Ben Goldhaber confirmed that the OWL stream peaked at 415k viewers, completely blowing his viewership estimates out of the water. According to Eurogamer, OWL also dominated the Twitch viewing charts during that time, surpassing top League of Legends and PUBG streamers.

Make sure to catch up on Overwatch League’s day one results before the mayhem continues tonight at 2 p.m PT/5 p.m. ET, starting with London Spitfire and Florida Mayhem.
