1 post in this topic

The weekend of 8-10 July showcased several tournaments. There were the two weekly GosuGamers cups, as well as the first qualifier for the $10,000 Beyond the Summit Overwatch #1. Alongside these, the BEAT Invitational has been progressing.

They Beyond the Summit qualifier was a double elimination event, with the top two teams qualifying for the playoff finals in August. There will be another event to decide two more qualifers next week. The lineup was a strong one, the eight teams involved were: EnVyUs, 1SHOT NG Red, Liquid, Luminosity, Splyce, Cloud9, and Code7.

As expected, EnVyUs came through the upper bracket, going 7-0 on maps along the way. It was however a breakout event for Code7. After losing narrowly to Cloud9 in the first round, they came through the lower bracket and beat Splyce, NG Red, Luminosity in a row, and then went on to win the rematch with Cloud9 to claim the second qualifying spot. This is the third different team to beat Cloud9 in as many weeks, and the discussion about who is the second best team in the world is a lively one.

The ongoing $7500 BEAT Invitational features many of the same teams, although Rogue are playing in place of Luminosity. In that event, NG Red managed to take a map from EnVyUs, who have again progressed to the Grand Final. In the rest of the event, at time of writing, Code7 have beaten Cloud9 in another close match, and await the winner of Cloud9, who have come through lower bracket, and NG Red in the lower finals. 

In the 15th week of GosuGamers Cups, Reunited beat Rogue to take down the Europe event. Creation finished in third place. In the Americas section, Nubris beat SG-1 in the final. 2sTroNk came third.

As you can see, the tournament scene has an incredibly busy schedule at the moment. Teams are improving at a very quick rate, but as it stands EnVyUs are still head and shoulders above the rest.

      It's here! The Year of the Rooster/Lunar/Chinese New Year begins and we get new skins and, more importantly, a Capture the flag game mode! It's a Brawl and Jeff Kaplan took time to explain it in detail in a new dev update video below. You can also check out the amazing "Winston's Journey to the West tapestry at the bottom of the post.

      Gather your family and friends, heroes, and get ready to ring in the Year of the Rooster!
      Overwatch's Lunar New Year celebrations have begun and we hope this seasonal event brings you happiness, prosperity, and (most importantly) lots of fun. For the next three weeks, players will have the chance to collect over 100 commemorative cosmetic items, enjoy a firefight beneath some fireworks on Lijiang Tower, and work together to capture the flag in Overwatch's newest brawl mode.
      Good Luck and Great Fortune Await
      Starting today, our customaryLoot Boxes have been replaced with our lucky Lunar Loot Boxes—and they’re packed with one heck of a (primal) punch, including new skins like Palanquin D.Va and Wukong Winston!
      As with previous events, Lunar Loot Boxes can be earned or purchased, and each will contain at least one item from our Year of the Rooster collection—including player icons, sprays, victory poses, emotes, highlight intros, skins, and more. While the contents of each seasonal Loot Box are random, you can unlock a variety of these customization options in the Hero Gallery for credits throughout the event’s duration.
       
      Once you've unlocked an item, it will be yours forever, which means you can celebrate the Year of the Rooster all year-round. The collection will return to the vault on February 13, however, so be sure to fire up your favorite gaming machine and see what good fortune might await before it’s too late!
      Capture the Rooster
      No event would be complete without a first-class brawl, and for the Year of the Rooster we took a cue from tradition and are introducing an Overwatch take on a true competitive gaming staple: Capture the Flag.
      In Capture the Rooster, teams will face off on Lijiang Tower, attempting to secure the enemy flag while the opposing team does the same. In this fast-paced brawl, players will need to get creative with their team compositions as they attempt to construct a lineup that’s built for offensive speed and defensive stability.
      Let the Celebration Begin
      We’ll also be ringing in the Lunar New Year over on our social media channels, so be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for some extra luck—and don't forget to keep an eye on playoverwatch.com to stay up to date with the latest game news!

      Overwatch’s Year of the Rooster is live RIGHT NOW on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. We wish you every success this season and can’t wait to see you in-game!

      To celebrate Lunar New Year, we're settling in for a bedtime story beloved by people around the world—and at least one imaginative young ape from the moon. Captured in a breathtaking tapestry illustrated by SHISHIO, Winston's Journey to the West recounts one of China's oldest and most revered pieces of literature through the eyes of everyone’s favorite gorilla scientist.
      From a very young age, Winston showed limitless curiosity for the universe around him. But even though he was fascinated by the wonders of science, he also had a fondness for stories, particularly the tales that were passed down from generation to generation.
      One day, on Lunar New Year, Dr. Harold Winston, the lunar colony researcher who cared deeply for the young ape's education and training, challenged him to read an epic story that was centuries old but beloved by billions. Journey to the West is a sweeping tale that soars between a mythological Earth and the glorious heavens, portraying demons, gods, and heroes clashing in mighty battles.
      The gorilla's imagination was captured by the heroic monk Tang Sanzang and his ragtag group of disciples' quest for redemption… like the banished marshal Zhu Bajie, the old general Shā Wùjìng, and of course, the mischievous Monkey King, Sun Wukong.
      Every Lunar New Year, Winston is reminded of his younger days. Growing up in the lunar colony had its trials, but it also had its treasures. Exploring this story with his mentor will always be one of his most cherished memories.
      May happiness and prosperity find you in the Year of the Rooster!

      The new Overwatch event is coming tomorrow and we already have pretty good idea of what it'll be, with Blizzard's official announcement and now  the leak of the launch video as well! New skins for not only Mei and D.Va, but Reinhardt, Roadhog, Winston and Zenyatta too, with possibly more to come!
       
      There was also another ad that got leaked earlier that the video confirms, with some sweet, sweet new Reinhardt, Roadhog, Winston and Zenyatta skins! Just one day to go.

      And here are the official two videos announcing the event, for good measure:

      Heya all,
      I know @Cablenerd already made a post for this but since he's currently not very active I'm (partly) taking over some of his recruiting.
       
      Our clan is called the Marauders and we are working heavily on our overwatch department. We are currently starting to form teams and will be having practice nights to work on general tactics/knowledge/skill in overwatch. Once a month we will hold an in-clan tourney between different teams in 6v6 as well as 3v3 and 1v1 situations.
      Obviously we are looking for YOU to join our ranks.
      If you are interested hop over to the website of awesomeness and submit an application. Make sure to mention me (LORDmeSH1NE) as your reference if you do.
      Do you have any questions or remarks? Don't hesitate to comment here or send me a message.
      I hope to more people coming in so we as a clan can be healthy and prosperous.
      Make sure to smile at least once every day. (especially after killing symmetra)

      At least two new skins are coming, for Mei and D.Va and we get to see a sneak peek of them.
      The Year of the Rooster is coming to OW and Blizzard have started teasing it already, if you can call straight up announcing the release date a tease. We don't know much more about it other than it will feature at least two new skins for Mei and D.Va, but it seems likely it'll be on par with all the other events so far and have more than just that. If not, it could be the first of a new type of smaller-scale theme event that comes around more frequently (or only for very special occasions), which isn't a bad idea either. In any case, here are the two new skins and teaser videos, courtesy of the official OW twitter and its Korean counterpart:
      Meanwhile, Jeff Kaplan is set to deliver a keynote speech at the 2017 DICE Summit titled "Overwatch: How Blizzard Created a Hopeful Vision of the Future".

      Dev goals for Sombra, Roadhog's hook, D.Va and Ana thoughts, how the PTR is not just for community feedback on the changes, why there's no PTR on consoles and more.
      The big Roadhog and D.Va changes on the PTR recently, as you'd expect caused a civilized, calm and measured discourse in the OW community, without any overreactions or hyperbole whatsoever. So mild was the reaction that Jeff Kaplan felt the need to restate the purpose of the PTR and that changes done there aren't necessarily the end of the world. Of Overwatch.
      The actual details go into other purposes of the PTR other than community feedback on changes, goals or Sombra, Roadhog's hook, how D.Va is doing "too much" right now, small Ana changes, why there isn't a PTR on consoles and more:
