Welcome to this week’s esports update! This week held the final week of the initial Gfinity Elite Series league play – next week, the top four teams will head into the Play-Offs, and the week after that will be the Finals, held between the top two teams in each game. This week also saw the start of the Overwatch Contenders league! Given the popularity of Overwatch as a game, and the fact we are likely to have our own local representation in the next season of the Overwatch League, I thought it would be a good idea to watch the up-and-comers locally!
Welcome to this week’s esports update! It’s a little late, due to the E3 shenanigans, but hopefully not too late! There’s a lot more to come, and I’ve kind of streamlined my ability to do these posts, so it’s definitely getting easier! I’ve also got my eyes on a few other tournaments, but I’ve noticed there are so many different events on that it’s impossible to cover it all. Over time, I’ll revise my focus, but for now, it’s Aussie tourneys and OWL (because let’s face it, that’s hugely popular)! Again, if there’s something specific you’d like me to cover, let me know and I’ll start keeping tabs and add it to the update.
I’m going to do my best to cover the esports tournaments that I’m aware of. At present, I’m only across the Gfinity Elite Series and the Overwatch League, but if there’s something you’d like me to add, let me know. Also, if you’d like me to add or change anything at all to make things clearer, feel free to hit me up in the comments – this is a learning process!
