Overwatch – Rise of the Next Great eSport

Blizzard has been predictably silent when it comes to officially announcing plans for Overwatch eSports. That, however, hasn’t stopped the eSports community at-large from prepping for what’s likely going to be an extremely popular competitive game to watch. Sure, small, unsanctioned tournaments have been popping up quite a bit, but what most are anxious to see is how exactly Blizzard plans to handle Overwatch. There’s a lot to consider, too, so it’s not much of a shock that we haven’t heard anything just yet. According to BlizzCon.com, there are currently no plans for Overwatch to be part of the eSports content for this year, though it would be hard to believe Blizzard isn’t at least considering some kind of an invitational given the apparently lack of new “news” for them to share.

Regardless of what Blizzard plans to do, the one thing we do know is that the community and players are anxious to see it come together. In preparation for Overwatch finally joining other games at tournaments, some of the largest, most successful eSports organizations have already formed teams. EnVyUs, Cloud9, and Liquid are just a few to name who have put together what they hope will be a winning collection of players who are poised to swarm the eSports scene once Overwatch is officially inaugurated. The anticipation is so high, even ESPN has begun publishing a series of articles analyzing the meta game providing readers with guides to each available hero. The first focuses on offensive characters, and it appears there’s more to come on a weekly basis.

 

Our take on Overwatch eSports? Make it happen, Blizzard! And we know you’ll do it right. In the meantime, channel your very best inner Tracer with a pair of GUNNARS that are as electric and popular as the character: Intercept.
