Per the Overwatch League Official Rules, title match results will not count toward overall season playoff seeding or tiebreaker scenarios.

There's definitely some big games coming up this week:
Friday morning our time we get Shanghai Dragons vs Dallas Fuel, so we'll see if Shanghai can get through the season getting at least one win on the board.
Then, New York are currently 2nd on the ladder, 7 wins to 1 loss, and are playing Florida on Friday morning - who are second bottom 1 for 7.
London, 1st, play Houston, 4th, immediately after that game.
THEN, on Monday morning, it's the current 1v2 - London vs New York.
There's a potential possibility that London, New York or possibly even Seoul could have to play three games all on Sunday (Monday) nearly back-to-back.
