Competitive Mode is your gateway to a new world of Overwatch esports competition. Whether you want to compete on the global stage or just want to learn tips from watching the experts, Overwatch esports has something for players of all levels, expressed in two major competitions: Overwatch League and the Overwatch World Cup.
Overwatch League players begin their journey in the preseason, where they are gathered into a global talent pool. Team owners sign the best players and build rosters ahead of a season: twelve weeks of intense season play. Overwatch League features exciting live events and tournaments, culminating in the Overwatch League World Championships.
In the inaugural Overwatch World Cup, fan communities from all over the world nominated hundreds of the world’s most dynamic players to represent their countries. The final sixteen national teams made the trip to BlizzCon, where best-of-three, round-robin group stages followed by single-elimination finals will determine which of them gets the glory on the BlizzCon 2016 stage.
