The OWLs Nest is CheckpointXP’s official podcast dedicated to the Overwatch League. Every week Robbie Landis is joined by Jake Lyon to discuss the latest league moves, matches and more. This week they talk about the release of Overwatch’s newest DPS hero, Echo. Plus, with matches moving to an online format the Chinese teams finally get a chance to play. Robbie and Jake break down the best of the east Overwatch.

The newest hero to join the Overwatch cast is ‘an evolutionary robot programmed with a rapidly adapting artificial intelligence’ according to PlayOverwatch. Echo is a DPS class that is unlike any other hero currently in the game. She is up on the PTR for testing and is very powerful. Her Ultimate allows her to duplicate any hero on the enemy team, using their abilities and their ultimate. Jake and Robbie discuss the impact Echo could have on the competitive scene. How will she fit into compositions and is she over-powered and in need of an adjustment?

Plus, with the Overwatch League switching to online play amid the crisis, the Chinese teams and the Souel Dynasty make their debut. The Hangzhou Spark, Chengdu Hunters, Guangzhou Charge and Seoul Dynasty have yet to play a single game this season. Jake and Robbie evaluate each of these teams and try to predict where they may fall in relation to one another. In addition, due to the cancellations this season and the switch to online play, this weekend will feature 16 matches. Due to the high volume of matches this week, there are two matches of the week.
