UPDATE: Congrats to AVRL, SMITE and NESTY for being selected as our NZ Overwatch World Cup Committee!
With the top 32 regions now selected by Blizzard (New Zealand slides in at #30!) it’s time for us to vote on who is going to be on our Overwatch competition committee.
Whoever we choose now will be responsible for selecting and recommending to Blizzard the strongest Overwatch team for our region.
You can cast 3 votes in total, there are seven candidates to choose from – let’s take a quick look at who’s in the running for the positions!
AVRL is the current lead analyst and caster for the Overwatch Pacific Championship, he was also lead analyst and caster for the Oceanic Summer Series and the former coach of JAM Gaming and Team Skyfire!
ezy is a full time eSports host for Full Circle who are currently covering the Overwatch Pacific Championship. He’s got the skills to see what potential players can do based on their mechanical skill and picking which personalities work well together.
Joker has played competitively since the release of Overwatch last May and watched the best players NZ has to offer rise so he knows who works well with who.
Lokistar is a psychology major who has been playing Overwatch since BETA. With extensive knowledge of both the game and the Blizzard gaming community.
Nesty has both experience and passion for the game. Reaching the top 500 on more than one account with a good knowledge around the mechanics of gameplay.
Pixie casts the matches in which champions are crowned, he knows what makes winners win. A vote for Pixie is a vote for knowledge, experience and moustaches!
Smite is a colour caster and analyst on the biggest Pacific tournaments Overwatch has seen, packed full of sweet as Kiwi pride, he’s a top choice to help New Zealand take on the world.
Vote for your chosen representatives here, as I write this there are just days left so get in quick with your selections!
All 32 teams will compete in a group stage event for a chance to make it to the World Cup playoffs at BlizzCon in November \o/
