In the OverWatch League sometimes the winning team would be required to replay the tournament where they need to win to basically get the honor. But during the 2021 Overwatch League in June the winning team that is Shanghai Dragons didn’t need to replay the tournament by going against the Dallas Fuel because the Chengdu Hunters already defeated them when they were sent by Shanghai Dragons to the Losers’ Finals. Over here the Hunters won the fight but couldn’t win against the Shanghai Dragons in the Finals.
