The Overwatch Festival has come to an end, and it has been an amazing three weeks for us. We have gotten to know and accommodate tournaments for our budding local community, who showed skill in their gameplay and – in our opinion – summed up what it means to have sportsmanship in and outside of eSports – GGs all around!
3 Weeks, 441 players and one great experience
Over the three weeks, 15 tournaments were held across three platforms (Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4) and a total of 441 players entered the respective tournaments. We saw some outstanding plays and amazing fails which are thanks to the community who decided to stream, share and shoutcast some of the respective games.
We are currently working on a couple of videos for the event, one of which will be the MWEB GameZone Top 5 plays! We will keep you all posted as soon as it is released.
The Overwatch community is special, in more ways than one
Firstly, we want to say thank you to everyone who participated in the Overwatch Festival (#OWFestZA).
We promised that the #OWFestZA was only the beginning of our journey into competitive and casual play. We do have plans for the near future to provide tournaments for the larger team size competitions (6v6). That said, we are by no means leaving the 1v1 and 3v3 events behind, you can expect more of that in the not to distant future too.
A big ‘thank you’ is also in order for the sponsors that trusted us, and continue to do so. It’s with their support that we are able to give something back to the community.
Talking about giving things back, we only have one more thing left to do, which is to announce our winners across the respective platforms, as well as our grand prize winner.
The winner’s circle
For each tournament that our players participated in, an XP value was awarded for their final placement in each of the respective tournaments.
You can view the full list of amazing prizes which they won here.
At the end of the competition, our Top 3 XP Winners from each respective platform are:
