IGN has been hard at work trying to figure out what exactly we can expect from the Overwatch League, as the Overwatch community is still struggling to get its feet under its proverbial boots.
The Overwatch League has been one of the most talked about titles of the year, and it’s going to be interesting to see how it all plays out in the months to come.
We’ve been told by a source close to the Overwatch development team that there’s a new Overwatch League Championship Series (League), and that there are three different types of teams: the North American teams, the European teams, and the Asian teams.
The league is set to begin in late February, with the first season of the league expected to be played on February 23.
The league is being billed as a way for Blizzard to “expand the esports experience” and to “make sure esports is available to more people,” according to an Overwatch League spokesperson.
This could be something similar to what Riot did with League of Legends, but the company is trying to make it work across a wide variety of gaming platforms.
The League will be streamed and played live, as well as through Blizzard’s esports app.
There are also teams that will compete in the Overwatch Open Cup.
It’s still unclear how the Overwatch esports app will work in-game, but it’s possible that some sort of social aspect could be added to it.
It’s also possible that the League will feature a lot of matchmaking.
A recent report suggested that Blizzard is planning to launch a matchmaking system that would be similar to Riot’s.
This means that it would allow users to compete for matches against other players in real-time.
In terms of gameplay, the Overwatch open cups will feature two different modes.
The first, “Invite Only,” is set up for players who don’t have a team in Overwatch League.
The second, “League Only,” allows for players with teams to play against each other in the same arena.
It sounds like Blizzard wants to make sure the Overwatch league doesn’t become an esports showcase, which is something that Riot is currently doing with its League of Legend esports competition.
The League is going to run from February 23 to April 2.
We’ll be following this up with more information as it becomes available.
We have to give some credit to the League of Light, who are the top Overwatch teams, for taking a chance on the Overwatch tournament model.
This is one of those rare times when you see a company take a risk and try something new.
