The KIT KAT® Rivalry Weekend in Los Angeles marks the final step of Stage 4 in the OWL. Eight final matches between 10 of the 20 teams will set the stage for postseason and set the final season rankings in stone.
So far, the Vancouver Titans and New York Excelsior have secured their first place finishes in their divisions from the regular season. San Francisco Shock is also well secured in their 2nd spot in Pacific Division. The Hangzhou Spark and LA Gladiators are in a battle for fourth and fifth as Week 5 will determine their W/L record with LA Gladiators holding a higher map differential and Spark being a match ahead currently.
In the Playoff cutout London Spitfire currently sits at 6th with a 16-12 record tailed by the Atlanta Reign with 14-12 and two matches to play. Reign holds a positive map differential over Spitfire currently and a good 2-0 week would net them the coveted 6th in playoffs. Although, some calculations may be applied and a play towards 7th would net Reign better results as their Playoffs Round 1 would then be NYXL instead of SF Shock, arguably the easier opponent of the two.
Down at the Play-Ins cutout, the Chengdu Hunters have completed their run with a 13-15 run and currently sit at 12th. LA Valiant is on their tail with 2 matches to go and a 12-14 record. A single win would put them ahead of the Hunters and into Play-Ins.
Week 5 is crucial for both the Atlanta Reign and LA Valiant in their respective places in the standings.
