Overwatch has been out for a while now and the competitive scene is just getting started. There have been a few tournaments here and there that you can find on Twitch, but for the most part it’s nothing like other established games where something is seemingly always happening. Maybe that’ll change in the future, but for now here’s a brand new open tournament for all you Overwatch fans.
FACEIT is one of the leading competitive gaming platforms out there and they’ll be behind the online phase, regionals and grand finals of the tournament for Europe and North America. After the online phase matches will take place in Atlanta at ELEAGUE’s Turner Studios arena. Everyone will be competing for their share of $300,000 prize pool and the grand finals will be broadcast on TBS as well as on Twitch.
Everything begins July 23 and the online rounds will finish with playoffs to be played from August 26-28, and the top eight teams from each of the regional playoffs will advance to the finals. Remember this is an open tournament so anyone who has a team, official or not, can sign up to play and you can do so here. If you just want to watch here’s a link to the Twitch channel that’ll be playing everything.
