About Ed Thorn

Ed joined Metabomb in May 2017 and puts together guides and news across the site.

Our Overwatch League 2019 guide contains the Season 2 schedule and team list, with start times for the PT, ET, GMT and CET timezones.

The 2019 season of the Overwatch League is now well under way, and the first stage of the competition has just been wrapped up with an exciting Playoff showdown that saw continued dominance by the Vancouver Titans.

To help you stay on top of the rest of the tournament, we've put together a comprehensive guide that we think should contain everything you need to know about Overwatch League in 2019. We've got a breakdown of all the teams - old and new - who'll be taking part in the competition, as well as a schedule of upcoming matches.

We'll also be adding in results of every match and maintaining an up to date breakdown of the live standings. We're also going to be exploring some of the highlights of the biggest matches in breakout articles, so keep an eye on the homepage for more insight into the League.

We'll also be digging out catch-up video where it becomes available from official Overwatch League sources. We'll drop links to those pages throughout the guide, so that you can get up to speed on any of the key matches that you might have missed.

UPDATE - 8th April 2019

Week 1 of Stage 2 has just come to a close and we've updated this article with the latest results and standings.

Overwatch League Stream

All matches will be streamed on the Overwatch League's official Twitch channel. Here's an embed so you can get stuck in right away.


The standings after Week 2, Stage 2 of OWL 2019 have now been confirmed. We'll update this section again next week, once another full week of play is behind us:
