The Competitive Recap: We listed what you might have missed (January 20th - January 26th)
There are a lot of things to keep track of in the Overwatch scene and it's become increasingly difficult to keep up with it all. Never fear as the GosuGamers Competitive Recap is here! We've compiled all the Overwatch news that's fit to print.
Released every week, the Competitive Recap compiles all the tournament and important news that's happened over the last seven days. Whether you're interested in big news, or want to stay updated on changes in teams, you can always tune in every week to see if there's anything you've missed.
The newest seasonal event is now live on all platforms, featuring a whole new list of collectibles and a temporary gamemode.
The new, temporary gamemode added to the game is a classic one: capture the flag. After months of speculation, this mode was finally added but quickly followed up with a new developer update video, emphasizing that it becoming a regular, competitive mode is still not likely.
Four of the best Finnish teams have been invited to entertain their country's fans at Assembly 2017. Ninjas in Pyjamas is looking like the absolute favorite.
Alongside the new event, Blizzard also added the changes that were tested on the PTR. Read up on them to see how they will impact the meta.

With OGN's APEX Season 2 in full force, and the new patch landing, Thom took a look at what teams will be most impacted, and who will get a chance to come out on top as the new meta settles.
-bird noises- was one of those dedicated amateur teams that put in the work to be worthy of getting signed by an organization. And because everything is right in the world, this is exactly what happened.
Cloud9 continues to tinker with their lineup, even though their most important event in a while kicked off this week.
