Overwatch Contenders EU Season 2 – A Season in review
Angry Titans: the Titans of European Overwatch
Following an intense season after which the Angry titans stand undefeated in the Overwatch Contenders Finals, we wanted to take a moment and review the outstanding run.
The young team made a lasting impression in the European Overwatch scene. Not only are they the final boss to defeat when the Contenders finals are happening in Paris on the 21st of September, but multiple players of their rosters have been called upon to play for their respective national teams in the Overwatch World Cup Qualifiers.
Many of the Titans are still at the start of their professional careers and are faithful prospects for future Overwatch League stardom. With Blizzards premiere Overwatch competition adding at least four expansion teams for its second season, lots of Overwatch League teams will be turning towards talents from the champions of the Contenders tournaments.
But the title of Contenders finalist didn’t came without hard work for the Angriest team in Europe. The Titans missed out on the finals in the last season of the Overwatch Contenders, being eliminated in the semi’s by Finnish side Team Gigantti. Now, with Gigantti out of the way, the road is clear for Angry Titans to beat Eagle Gaming in the finals and claim the title of European Overwatch champions.
The title would come well deserved for Angry Titans, for they have been unbeaten all season long. Eagle Gaming, the French side that the Titans will face in the finals, have on the other hand picked up two defeats along the course of the season. It’s thus no suprise that Angry Titans are the favorite to take the title, especially after how much the team has improved since last year.
The Titans started off the season with two clean sheets. In their two first two games they managed a perfect 4-0 victory against both Orgless and Hungry and 6nakes respectively. Angry Titans‘ third match proved to be slightly more of a challenge as they dropped a point against Young and Beautiful. Titans pulled through in the end tough and came out on fire with a 3-1 victory. British Hurricane proved to be the most challenging opponent for Angry Titans so far. London Spitfire’s academy team came close to bringing AT their first loss of the season, but were ultimetly defeated by the Titans in a very close game that resulted in a 2-1 victory. In the last week oft he regular season the Titans defeated Bazooka Puppiez 3-1 and closed out with a 16 (maps won) – 1 (maps tied) – 3 (maps lost) record, ending first in their group.
Quarter finalist One.Point proved to be an easy task for Angry Titans. With a clean 3-0 victory the Titans progressed to the semi-finals. Russian side Winstrike Team was much more of a serious thread to the Angry Titans, in a very back-and-forth match between the two the Titans succeeded in securing their ticket to the Contenders finals with a 3-1 victory over Winstrike.
On September 21st at 9 p.m. central European timezone Angry Titans will have to show their angriest performance yet as they face Eagle gaming in a best on seven final at the Espace Grande Arche in Paris. The match will be availible for all audience to watch at: twitch.tv/overwatchcontenders
