Next year, Overwatch League will be taking its show on the road, and my brother and I will be there! We got our tickets to their April home stand and I’m pumped!
Though the event is months away, I have a lot of brushing up to do. Overwatch is game that I enjoy and play from time-to-time, but I’ve spent very little time actually following the eSports side of it. Haven’t made the time to watch any Overwatch League games live. Having watched a few after the fact, I really struggle to follow along. Even though I play the game, the constantly-shifting camera from player-to-player and my lack of knowledge when it comes to high-level play make it difficult to follow.
Maybe it will be easier to follow live. Maybe it won’t. Maybe I won’t do my homework and I’ll go in blind. In any case, I’m looking forward to it! Competitive gaming is in a really exciting place and this is a great opportunity to be a part of that. Having a home team like in traditional sports should certainly help me get more invested in the action.
For now, I’ll do my best to stay in the zone. Will always go back to playing Overwatch when the mood strikes me. And with rumblings of a Switch version growing stronger, I might be in deeper than ever.
Is Overwatch League coming to your neck of the woods? If so, are you going? Would you have any sort of interest in spectating or participating in an eSports event? Let me know in the comments!
