Eight teams remain across two regions in Blizzard’s Overwatch Contenders tournament.
After the tournament is through, two teams will prevail: One from Europe and one from North America. Sixteen total teams in Europe and North America entered Overwatch Contenders season one and competed through six weeks of regular season play. Four remain in each region: Team Envy, FaZe Clan, EnVision Esports, and FNRGFE in North America, and Misfits, Team Gigantti, 123, and Cloud9 in Europe.
