In December, we launched our extended Path to Pro program with the 2018 Overwatch Open Division Season 1 sign-ups—and you overwhelmingly heeded the call. More than 17,000 heroes worldwide signed up to test their skills in an organized competitive setting!
Season 1 ended on Feb. 11, which means it’s time for our first Contenders Trials of the year. Contenders Trials is a promotion/relegation tournament which, in its first iteration, will allow the best-performing teams out of Open Division the chance to elevate themselves into their region’s available Contenders slots. In future Contenders Trials for each region, top Open Division teams will battle the least successful Contenders teams to try and capture their slots.
Here are the Open Division teams who will be competing for a place in their region’s Contenders via Contenders Trials, Feb. 12–March 4:
Last Night's Leftovers
One of Us
Orgless and Hungry
Young and Beautiful
Piece of Cake
That’s a Disband
Contenders Trials in China has already been completed. Here are the final standings:
Team Skadis Gift
Moss Seven Club
Super Number One
Lucky Future Zenith
Hero Taciturn Panther (Team Laffy)
Jayne’s French Toast Mafia
For those of you who missed out on 2018 Open Division Season 1, don’t worry: Season 2 kicks off in April. We’ll let you know when sign-ups are live, so keep practicing!
