Map three saw the teams fight for Paris, where the Titans full-held the Shock before making quick work of its defense with a surprise 2-2-2 composition.
Watchpoint: Gibraltar went the way of the Shock, as did Oasis, putting the series at 3-2 at halftime.
The series was decided on the back of heroic plays from both Matthew "super" DeLisi and Jay "sinatraa" Won on Blizzard World. The Shock handed the Titans its first ever Overwatch League loss to claim the championship.
