Overwatch World Cup Voting is Now Open
One week ago, Blizzard announced the Overwatch World Cup that will be played out at BlizzCon this year. The tournament itself does not have a prize pool, but the players voted in will receive a paid trip to BlizzCon as well as an appearance bonus. The players that are up for vote are pro players, community players and local players alike.
As for who gets to play, it will go like this:
- On Aug. 11, players of Overwatch will vote on players from their nations and regions to represent their team
- After voting ends, players will play in online qualifiers. These will be best-of-three, single-elimination online matches.
- At the end of the online qualifiers, there will be 16 teams left to attend BlizzCon. Out of those 16 teams, there will be six European teams, six Asia-Pacific teams, and four from the Americas.
- Out of the 16 teams, seven teams will automatically advance: United States, Canada, Brazil, China, South Korea, Australia, and New Zealand.
The voting is now open, you will choose players from whichever region your Battle.net account is registered to. If you’re interested in voting for your favorite players, vote here. You can only vote in your region. You’re not allowed to vote for players in Europe if you are located in the United States, for example.
