Blizzard has announced that the Overwatch Contenders has expanded to two brand new regions: Australia and South America bringing the total number to seven regions. This will create more opportunities for players in our region to prove themselves and be noticed by Overwatch League scouts.
The Australian region will hold an open qualifier tournaments to determine entry. Top six teams from existing tournaments (Contenders North America and Europe, APEX, Premier, and the Pacific Championship) will be invited to join. If you’re looking to play competitively and want to challenge yourself, the Overwatch Open Division also is returning in January.
With the open division and contenders coming to Australia, this will help create a path-to-pro system for players wanting to challenge themselves and take a shot in the Overwatch League.
