The community-sourced national team rosters who pursued the Overwatch World Cup have a lot to be proud of. After being named to a team and, in some cases, battling through regional qualifiers, they’ve jumpstarted a new chapter in esports.
Adapting to shifting competitive trends, grappling with character updates, and facing strong competition, these national teams devised and executed match-changing strategies in their battle to make it onto the BlizzCon stage. Whether they’re established esports veterans or fresh faces on the scene, these players and teams have entire nations standing with them.
The three global regions in the Overwatch World Cup—Europe, the Americas, and Asia-Pacific—yielded sixteen teams with a chance at BlizzCon glory. While their routes to this stage varied, the path before them—the battle to claim the Overwatch World Cup—demanded immense focus and top-tier play.
