When? Maybe at high noon
If you want to see some players who actually stay on the payload, there’s a mighty fine opportunity coming up in the fall. The best of the best at Overwatch are going to be on national television at the end of September.
Eleague and Faceit are hosting the Overwatch Open, a tournament with $300,000 in prize money. The competition starts tomorrow with open qualifiers, and it closes with the Grand Final on September 30 which will be broadcast on TBS.
TBS is no stranger to airing video games. For the past couple months, the station has aired Counter-Strike: GO matches every Friday night. This Overwatch tournament is just another part of TBS’ revamped focus which includes eSports.
