Teams to look out for
Fresh off a LAN tournament win at the Atlantic Showdown, Rogue is looking to capitalize on their recent run of form. They recently made it out of the group stage at the European regional tournament for the OW Open, going 2-1. They will depend on their star players, TivQ and aKm to lead them to the Promised Land.
A mixed team made up of players from both North America and Europe, FaZe had a very good month in August. The new roster features two King of the Hill wins in their trophy case and won their group at the European regional for the OW Open, which featured Rogue. This team is a dangerous underdog that could do significant damage today.
While FaZe might be underdogs, Reunited are the exact opposite. One of the most consistent teams in Overwatches young history, these perennial top 4 finishers are not to be taken lightly. After coming in second at the Atlantic Showdown and dominating their group for the OW Open regionals, this team looks as strong as ever. A grand final without Reunited is a rare sight indeed.
These relative new comers narrowly missed qualifying for the Atlantic Showdown. They did not let a second chance slip through their fingers and not only qualified for the OW Open regionals but dominated their group. This team is on the cusp of truly being elite, definitely a name to watch out for.
