Road to Atlanta #OWOPEN - An interview with compLexity Harbleu
In light of gamescom and as part of our extended coverage of ELEAGUE and FaceIt’s Overwatch Open, we sat down with compLexity Gaming’s flex player, Anthony “harbleu” Ballo. We talked about his thoughts on winning the qualifier, what they were looking forward to at gamescom, and, of course, who is better NA or EU. (Interview was conducted before the gamescom weekend.)

It is good to hear that, judging from interviews like this one, the NA scene is getting more and more competitive. The NA region doesn't have the strongest shooter history, but the explosive growth of Overwatch is allowing players to take their competitive future in the game very seriously, and it is also attracting more and more top end organizations to invest their own resources into the scene.
