Those of you who are interested in the competitive side of Overwatch are in for a treat tonight: Just minutes after the conclusion of the Gosugamer EU Weekly #2 the newly formed website Creation eSports will air another one of their king of the hill events, this time with two European teams.


 
After last week's North American version, which saw Hubris taking a convincing win over Not Enigma, k1ck and fnatic will battle it out for the European crown. Both teams just recently made changes to their lineups. While fnatic should be the clear cut favorite in this match, k1ck might be able to surprise and take a map or even the series.
 
The event will be casted by John "JoRoSar" Sargent and Samuel "oPlaiD" Lingle and air on the official Creation eSports twitch page at a expected starting time of 22 CET / 1 PM PST. However, the broadcast might start a little later should the Gosugamers EU Weekly still be broadcasted at that time.

      There's another blue post adding two new changes coming with Season 6, skill rating calculations after wins and losses and high tier players can now drop to lower tiers:
      Lylirra (source)
      In our latest developer update, Jeff Kaplan shared a variety of changes coming soon to Season 6 of Competitive Play. Along with these changes, there are two more important updates planned for Season 6 that we didn’t get to talk about in the video:
      Players in Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond can now drop into lower skill tiers We’ve made some adjustments to how skill rating is calculated after a win/loss  
      SKILL TIER UPDATES
      Players in Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond will now be moved into lower skill tiers if they cannot consistently maintain the minimum skill rating for that tier. After a loss, the game will check to see what a player’s current tier and skill rating are—if their skill rating has not exceeded the minimum for their current tier for the past five games, they will be demoted. (Players will never be demoted on a win.)
      Don’t worry: Competitive Points awarded at the end of a season will still be based on the highest tier earned that season. So, for example, if you reached Platinum during Season 6, but ended the season in Gold, you will still receive a number of Competitive Points based on your Platinum ranking.
      SKILL RATING UPDATES
      We've adjusted the calculations that determine how much skill rating players will gain after a win and lose after a loss. These changes should help address some of the anomalies players have been reporting, especially with heroes that have lower win-rates. We'll continue tuning this system and are committed to making additional adjustments so that players are encouraged to play the hero they feel gives their team the best chance to win a competitive match.
      As a reminder, Season 5 ends August 28 at 5PM PT and Season 6 begins August 31 at 5PM PT. Competitive Point rewards for Season 5 can be found here.

      We're getting to see Mei's origin story, and it's a pretty bleak one in the beginning there. Blizzard have made another great animated short, deepening the lore of the world and filling in the backstory of the various Heroes, so take a look!

      The gamescom stream has revealed a lot of junk! We just got the latest animated short, featuring everyone's favorites, Junkrat and Roadhog, starring in "Junkertown: The Plan". And then there's also the actual Junkertown escort map that will be coming soon!
