Where do the teams stack up at the start of the Stage One play-offs?

Stage one of the OWL has concluded and heading into the stage play-offs, there are only two teams who remain undefeated. The stage one play-offs will take place between the 22nd and 24th of March and involve all the teams who currently sit in the top 8. Both Vancouver Titans and New York Excelsior have won all of their seven league matches and sit in first and second place respectively.

Closest to the leaders of the pack are Philadelphia Fusion and Toronto Defiant who have both won 5 out of 7 matches and take the third and fourth spots in the table. The rest of the top 8 which includes: Atlanta Reign, San Francisco Shock, Seoul Dynasty and Boston Uprising all finished with 4 wins out of 7. Dallas Fuel, who have also won 4 matches were unlucky not to place but missed out due to their wins and losses difference.

The play-offs begin with Seoul Dynasty taking on New York Excelsior on the 22nd of March at 1:00am GMT. Then Boston Uprising will face Vancouver Titans at 3:00am GMT later that day. On the 23rd of March, Atlanta Reign play Philadelphia Fusion at 1:00am GMT and San Francisco Shock take on Toronto Defiant at 3:00am GMT. The eight sides will compete for a prize total of $500,000.
