The top of the pack is getting crowded, especially after the New York Excelsior knocked off the last of the undefeated teams.

Game of the Week

The New York Excelsior were reeling after an upset loss to the Philadelphia Fusion. But not only did the Excelsior bounce back, they did so against arguably the league's best team, sending the Seoul Dynasty to its first loss of the season. It all culminated with Tae-hong "Mek0" Kim not only guarding the point, but also taking out Yang "Tobi" Jin-Mo's Mercy to cement New York's victory.

This was an incredible series, with Seoul also bringing their best. Kim "Fleta" Byung-Sun did some crazy work with Junkrat, Widowmaker, and Genji, showing some amazing versatility. New York countered with some strong Zenyatta play from Sung-hyeon "JJoNak" Bang and some keen teamwork both on and off the control point. It's a must see and worth checking out below.
