Welcome to the first ever “What to Watch” brought to you by SFU eSports Association. What to Watch is a weekly rundown of the upcoming matches and tournaments that we are most excited about.
NA LCS: Match of the week
Team Solomid vs 100 Thieves
Sunday, March 4th, 2:00 PM
TSM and 100 Thieves are both fresh off of a 2-0 week 6, with upsets off of the 1st and 2nd placed teams respectively. With the teams being so close together in the standings, there is a lot on the line in this head to head and you can be sure that both teams will bring their A game.
EU LCS: Match of the Week
Saturday, March 3rd, 11:00 AM
Fnatic vs. Team Vitality
In the off-season Team Vitality almost completely revamped their roster bringing four new players and building a team around veteran top laner Lucas “Cabochard” Simon-Meslet. Although a risky move it has payed off so far as Vitality currently sits in 3rd place, only two games behind this week’s opponent, Fnatic. As we approach the end of the split, this match will have a sure effect on the playoff seeding and is a game EU LCS fans won’t want to miss.
OWL: Match of the Week
Saturday, March 3rd, 3:00 PM
New York Excelsior vs. Houston Outlaws
When it comes to competitive Overwatch, it doesn’t get much better than this. The OWL inaugural season’s two front runners go head to head in a battle for the top seed in the Atlantic Division. With NYE fresh off a loss to the London Spitfires in the opening week of Stage Two you can expect to see the team rally back better than ever against their closest competitor, as the Houston Outlaws look to take their place at the top.

This weekend 16 teams will compete against one another for $500,000 in ESL’s first big tournament of the year. It’s hard to predict who will be advancing out of group stages but if last year’s championship is any indication, then we can expect to see reigning champs Astralis coming out on top of Group A and last year’s runner ups Faze Clan doing so in Group B.
