Attention all Overwatch e-sports fans!
Players from across the globe were invited and subsequently elected to represent more than 50 countries and regions in the Overwatch World Cup. Over the last month, qualifiers have taken place in each region to determine which teams will be heading to BlizzCon to show off their competitive skills on the Overwatch World Cup stage. These teams will battle in round-robin group stages and then single-elimination finals to determine the winner of the international exhibition. Every team is comprised of six of the top competitive players that chose to represent their country, and include players from the best competitive teams such as EnVyUs, NRG eSports, Team Liquid, Cloud9, fnatic, REUNITED, Team Dignitas, Rogue, and Luminosity Gaming.
Congratulations to the Top 16 teams—we will see you at BlizzCon Opening Week, starting October 29, 2016!
