All good things must come to an end. In the case of the Overwatch League, season 1 has come to a close with the finale of the Overwatch League All-Star Weekend, which featured two rosters of all-star players from Atlantic and Pacific divisions facing off on a variety of arcade-themed games. We saw fantastic players such as Saebyeolbe, Ryujehong, Muma, Agilities and Carpe all facing off on fan-favorite games such as Lucioball, Mystery Heroes, and Talent Takedown. In the end, it all came down to the Atlantic division taking the title of All-Star champions!

After the Overwatch League matches had come to a close, it was definitely interesting to watch players who were once on the same team go against each other in a race to the top. As many of us remember, London Spitfire had taken the title of our Overwatch League Champions at the end of the season, and now our teams have rearranged and are preparing to battle it out at BlizzCon for the Overwatch World Cup. Currently, the World Cup is holding preliminary games where 24 qualified nations have been divided into four groups, hosted by South Korea, the U.S., Thailand, and France. From these 24 nations, the top two countries from each group stage will advance to the Overwatch World Cup Top 8 at BlizzCon. Based on what we saw in South Korea’s games last week, both team South Korea and Team Finland will be advancing to the top 8. We are so excited to see how the next qualifiers play out in the U.S. on September 7.
