More information, full schedule and ticketing can be found on the Assembly Website. Though this is a small invitational, the Overwatch scene is growing steadily, which could mean that next Assembly will feature other teams later on. For now, this is the time to shine for three of these four Finnish teams as they face up against the top 4th ranked team, NiP.
