The Overwatch World Cup is taking place in Sydney this weekend, featuring Sweden, Japan, Finland, Italy, Portugal and Vietnam. And, of course, Australia.
Australia will be playing their group stage matches throughout today and tomorrow, squaring off against Portugal, Italy and Sweden. Australia is playing right now against Italy, and they’re 1-0 up after taking the first match on King’s Row. Unlike last year, the Aussies have a much better chance of qualifying for the finals at Blizzcon this year, although the match against Sweden should be particularly hard.
The news that the Australians got a lot of practice against the South Koreans (who didn’t want to practice rival nations) could come in handy later in the tournament. We’ll be attending the event ourselves from tomorrow, so if you’re around, say hi!
