After six weeks of Overwatch Contenders, the four teams moving forward from each region have been determined.

Team Envy tops the standings in North America with a 7-0 record. FaZe Clan, EnVision Esports, and FNRGFE round out the top four.

Rogue, unable to beat Envy on Sept. 23, is the major upset of the weekend. Consistently regarded as a top-tier Overwatch team, the roster did not qualify for the Overwatch Contenders playoffs. Likewise, Immortals, Kungarna, and Renegades are out of the tournament.
