Via il sipario sulla nuovissima stagione competitiva del panorama Overwatch, che avrà inizio finalmente a partire dal 16 Aprile. Inoltre, con l’arrivo degli Overwatch Contenders ritornano anche le competizioni di altissimo livello che vedranno coinvolti i nomi più eminenti di tutta la scena.

Blizzard, in un lungo comunicato su Reddit che troverete cliccando QUI, ha già ampiamente anticipato tutti i cambiamenti in arrivo per la stagione 2021. Nel seguente comunicato Blizzard comunica l’intenzione di seguire la linea d’azione intrapresa nel corso del 2020, con le modifiche che hanno investito in positivo ciascuna regione.

Senza ulteriori indugi andiamo dunque a vedere insieme le esatte parole del comunicato, per capire quali sorprese ci riserverà l’anno competitivo di Overwatch nel 2021.

Il comunicato:

North America and Europe

Contenders North America and Europe will continue holding eight-team double-elimination on a roughly monthly cadence.

Due to player and team feedback, we’re planning to run Trials in between every other tournament at the start of 2021. This means teams that qualify for Contenders will automatically compete in two tournaments before potentially facing relegation in Trials. The Trials format in both regions will also be updated to a six-team single round robin format.

The first Trials is scheduled to kick off in early March, and the first tournament will be held in late March. For more info visit the schedule page.

South Korea

Contenders Korea will continue hosting a traditional 10-team league format—with a few modifications we’re excited about.

We are introducing an inter-group play round in between group play and playoffs that will help determine playoff seeding and final qualifications. The playoffs will adopt a stepladder format where teams will be seeded based on regular-season performance and a single loss will mean elimination—potentially leading to some juicy underdog runs

Season 1 of Contenders Korea is scheduled to kick off in mid-March. For more info visit the schedule page.

China

Contenders China will retain its original 2020 format while adopting a few tweaks based on player and fan feedback.

The number of teams will be reduced from 12 to 8 to increase match quality for all participants. The number of Trials tournaments will also be reduced from four to two this year in order to create more stability for Contenders teams.

Season 1 of Contenders China is scheduled to begin in mid-March. For more info visit the schedule page.

Australia

Contenders Australia will continue to operate a single group, league-style format with a reduction in teams from eight down to six. The regular season is scheduled to start in early March. For more info visit the schedule page.

Contenders Viewership Rewards

The Contenders viewership incentives program will remain the same in 2021. Viewership rewards will return to all official broadcasts starting with Contenders Australia on March 11, and the first set of hero skins this year will be Bastion (7 hours) and Reinhardt (15 hours). Like last season, viewers can earn rewards by enjoying live matches on overwatchleague.com. Regional and other eligibility restrictions apply. See Official Rules for details.

Insomma, tantissima carne al fuoco per l’imminente stagione competitiva che saprà, ne siamo certi, portare un vento nuovo nel panorama. Ma voi community, cosa ne pensate? Vi piace il sistema di rewards? Fatecelo sapere, come al solito, con un commento!
