Overwatch World Cup Returns

by on Apr 04, 2017

Details on how to participate in Blizzard's expanded official league for Overwatch announced.

It's back - the Overwatch World Cup will make its second appearance at BlizzCon later this year. In this year's expanded event, teams from 32 countries are invited. For those who want to participate, you'd better get started!

Once the Top 32 countries are identified, players from those countries will need to work together to assemble their 2017 Overwatch World Cup National Committee. Each national committee will consist of three local experts, who will be charged with recommending roster picks for all stages of the competition—including the BlizzCon finals! These committees have a key role to play in team selection, suggesting line-ups based on players’ synergies, hero pools, and past game performances.

The next stage is live qualifiers from around the world, where 8 of the world's top teams will go to BlizzCon in November.
