Overwatch is finally beginning its first true international tournament, and Blizzard is dropping a whole bunch of info about it. 16 different countries representing different regions will be competing in a huge tournament for fame and fortune (and bragging rights). The best players from all over the world will be voted in to play and chosen by team captains (kind of reminds me of dodgeball in elementary school(and to a lesser extent, not being chosen)).

Now is as good a time as ever to get into Overwatch, it’s got a massive following, it only gets more and more popular by the day, and it’s an absolutely fantastic game. Check out the video above and let us know if you’ll be watching the tournament, or know anyone participating in it!
