Competitive Overwatch Weekend Recap

Overwatch Robert “hexagrams” Kirkbride

The past weekend was filled with Overwatch cups. Even today fans of competitive Overwatch could again tune in to watch the top teams play. We understand that not everybody will have watched all (or any) of the tournaments, so allow us to summarize the important info for you!

GosuGamers EU Weekly #4 (Saturday 20th Feb, 18:00 CET)

VODs

With new sponsors DXRacer and Matcherino joining Roccat, the GosuGamers EU Weekly hosted fifteen of the best EU teams to see who would take home the $360 dollar grand prize.  With some top European teams sitting out of the tournament, including Melty, IDDQD, and Eccentric, the tournament was wide open, and early favorites G2.Kinguin and REUNITED.GG looked to capitalize on relatively weaker field of competition and establish themselves as the best teams in EU.

OneHitClub Weekly #1 (Saturday 20th Feb, 0:00 CET)

VODs

OneHitClub.com made a their debut into the tournament scene by hosting this North American tournament with a prizepool of $120 and an additional $120 donated the the charity of the winning team's choice.  Some of the most interesting emerging North American Overwatch teams put on a show, as familiar faces Code7 played against GoogleMe.

GameOn Cup Sunday (21st Feb, 16:00 CET)

VODs

The top teams from the European region met again on Sunday to brawl it out in The GameOn Cup on Azubu. Working with sponsors Matcherino, GameOn was able to post an impressive prizepool of over $600.  REUNITED.GG looked to have an easier draw in the bracket, as the lower half of the bracket looked to be unpredictable and was, with quality teams like #FlatEarth, SG-1, and G2 all fighting it out.  If you only have time to watch one VOD, and love Roadhog, watch SG-1 vs G2.

GosuGamers NA Weekly (Sunday 21st Feb, 21:00 CET)

VODs

This marked the first time EnVyUs returned to competetive play since the Overwatch beta returned.  The top team in North America looked to retain that title against Mixup, who was adjusting to a new roster, and relatively unknown GoogleMe, who had previously made a name for themselves in the 1HitClub Weekly.  The best teams in NA went at it and settled on a somewhat interesting meta development.

ESL Community Cup (Monday 22nd Feb, 19:00 CET)

VODs

The ESL Community Cup wanted to try a tournament with a more finite ruleset regarding hero limits. With a limit of one hero per side in place, the 2/2/2 compositions we saw develop in the previous day's tournaments were no longer in play.  That didn't damper the quality of the games however, as REUNITED.GG, Melty, and IDDQD put on a show.
