eSports at BlizzCon

Overwatch

World Cup

While 32 countries qualified into the 2017 Overwatch World Cup at the beginning of the year, now only eight remain. After a series of group stage events that traveled around the world, the teams left standing are Australia, Canada, China, France, South Korea, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

The impact of wins and losses will be swift, as day one of BlizzCon will feature the quarterfinals and semifinals of the single-elimination bracket. The quarterfinals feature last year’s championship team, South Korea, facing off against the home team of the United States. The French are strongly supporting their national team, Rogue, as they test their strong international competitive experience against the juggernaut of the Chinese national team. The United Kingdom made a strong statement in their group stage win and will be fighting for a semifinals spot vs. the traditionally strong Overwatch nation of Sweden, while it will be a battle of the Commonwealth between Australia and Canada.

Day two will feature the bronze-medal match, followed by the grand finals. Will Team South Korea defend its 2016 title, or will another worthy nation claim the 2017 Overwatch World Cup trophy?
