Today, the Boston Uprising has cemented their position in historical past inside the league in one of the most worst techniques imaginable; because the second-worst group inside the league, ever.
The simplest group that controlled to do worse inside a novel season is, in fact, the Shanghai Dragons, who had been identified for constantly having a look out of types (and mildly at a loss for words) within the inaugural season of the Overwatch League.
Boston Uprising’s reputable file for 2020 (season 3) of the Overwatch League is (2/17), or two wins and seventeen losses. Of the ones wins, one used to be in opposition to the Los Angeles Gladiators the place they unusually simplest controlled to win Control maps, whilst struggled with the entirety else.
They’ve truthfully regarded viable greater than as soon as around the entirety of the season, with the May Melee providing the nearest they had been ready to get to reaching victory by means of perseverance and ambitious talents; it used to be considered their catalyst for enlargement, which ended up irritating fanatics after they returned to their normally tough showings.
Many are pointing the blame squarely at Vytis ‘Mineral’ Lasaitis whose file is really abysmal for training: his private training file is fifteen wins, and seventy-four losses unfold throughout two seasons with Florida Mayhem and now the 2020 season with Boston Uprising.

There’s simplest such a lot of instances you’ll plausibly level on the head trainer for a rampant string of losses, however Mineral does appear to ask disaster within the groups that he leads. The Florida Mayhem are these days sitting at a wild card spot for the playoffs with (15/6) recorded up to now.
Yet the Boston Uprising, once more, had a intercourse scandal this yr that noticed the lack of a distinguished participant after allegations surfaced of him grabbing ladies’ palms in public puts, and normally being competitive. He used to be reduce in a while after with little rite, implying that group of workers noticed sufficient advantage inside the allegations to take away the participant.
A large number of allegations being thrown around the web apart, it’s been an overly tough season for the Overwatch League as an entire.
The pandemic proved to be the frosting on best of a disastrous get started that each one apparently started with Blizzard siding with China within the Hong Kong controversies with Blitzchung, then reversing the perception not to happen in political facets with the BLM motion and Pride months that perceived to harm their pocketbook not up to turning in opposition to China would.
With on-line suits happening that brings their very own distinctive variations of frustrations (together with the lack of a degree), homeowners mentioning that they want they didn’t put money into the Overwatch League, and a mass exodus of DPS gamers over to Valorant, in all probability we must be sated with the concept that they controlled to complete the season with nearly all of their roster intact.
