The fight has been a fierce one for sure, with the NZ Overwatch World Cup Team being assigned to Group G in Burbank USA they’ve now completed the matches against Team USA and Team Taipei.
The way this eSports event works is pretty straight forward, each group is comprised of four national teams that will play a full round-robin series of matches, from each group, the top two teams will advance to the single-elimination playoffs.
The top two finishers from each of the four group stage events will qualify for the Overwatch World Cup finals at BlizzCon 2017!
The stadium setup for this event is crazy cool, with an awesome Overwatch themed stage for the players and an excited audience looking on as they play each round. Hosts are setup just behind the audience stands providing both gameplay insights for newer players and some pretty funny banter to fill in the gaps 🙂
Below is the gameplay from players BIRDY, LEGABRIL, SIGNED, HOOWOO, WILLX and CANTUS battling against Team USA.
You can watch all the matches in this eSports event live via the PlayOverwatch Twitch Channel, as I write this I’m watching USA vs Germany and it’s GOOD \o/
