Overwatch's New Character, Moira, Is Out Now On PC For Some

For those not in the know, the Overwatch League includes 12 teams based in several cities around the world, and is a herculean effort in bringing eSports to the mainstream with the help of the massively popular multiplayer shooter.

As VentureBeat reports, league commissioner Nate Nanzer further explains: "During the regular season, each team will play twice per week across four game days".

Games will be played at the Blizzard Arena Los Angeles, but you'll be able to watch the matches streamed on the Overwatch League website (plus there will be a companion mobile app, although that's not available yet). Each match in the league will take place across a set of four maps, leaving the door open for draws.

In order to ensure that teams remain competitive, the Overwatch League will also feature mini-tournaments throughout the season featuring the best performing teams from the past five weeks.

Most of the franchises are based in the U.S., save for the London Spitfires, who as we mentioned are in the Atlantic division, and the Seoul Dynasty plus the Shanghai Dragons, who are in the Pacific division. That means that if the Pacific Division happens to have the top five teams in the league overall, for instance, then the postseason would include only one team from the other division. The Atlantic Division, on the other hand, is composed of the Boston Uprising, the Florida Mayhem, the Houston Outlaws, the London Spitfire, the New York Excelsior, and the Philadelphia Fusion. The start date is January 10 of next year. For those that want to represent their favorite teams both in and out of game, the developers have hinted that they're working on ways for players to show their support digitally, although details have yet to be revealed. The highest-ranked team in each division at the end of the season will receive an automatic playoff berth and a first-round playoff bye. The victor, taking home a handy $1 million for the championship game, will be crowned on July 28.
