Overwatch Champions Ladder

Whoa hey… can’t say we didn’t see this and many more coming. This game is awesome. In fact what am I doing writing this? Stuff it I’m just going to copy and paste the details so I can get back into game…… Ah @#$%^ kicked for inactivity!!!! Here’s the mail from Megarom Interactive… or follow this link for more details….Xboners will have to wait for their chance I guess.

Megarom Interactive in partnership with SteelSeries and Orena are proud to announce that

Overwatch has taken the gaming world by storm in the past two weeks. Since its announcement and the first day of Beta, players have been aching to get their hands on the new title. From a record breaking Beta to one of Blizzard’s most successful launches, Overwatch remains an exciting prospect in the gaming scene.

Competitively, however, is where Overwatch sets itself above the rest. Bringing something new to the first-person shooter world, Overwatch has ensured its longevity by being both exciting to watch, and play. Already tournaments are springing up around the country, and now Orena, in partnership with Steelseries, Megarom and Blizzard, are launching their three seasonal ladders with a grand total of R30 000 in prizes.

Cape Town, South Africa: Orena are proud to announce their new Overwatch Seasonal Ladder, an opportunity for local teams to compete on a daily basis in the hopes of topping the rankings. The ladder will have three seasons, each with a R10 000 prize pool and will include both PC and PlayStation 4!

The Seasonal dates are as follows:

  • Season 1: Begins June 13th and ends on August 1st [PC]
  • Season 2: Begins August 8th and ends on October 3rd [PS4]
  • Season 3: Begins October 10th and ends on December 5th [PC]

Teams can enter the ladder at any time throughout each seasonal ladder, but we advise you do it sooner than later to secure your top spot and challenge other teams.

The Ladder will also have a broadcast schedule with games being streamed live

on Orena’s Twitch Channel every Monday and Wednesday. The game will be shoutcasted by Kyle “Congo” Wolmarans and Lutz “crazymonkey” Ngqkakaza.

All ladder matches will be run on a best of 3 format with all maps and heroes available. A full ruleset can be found HERE.

After a full season of ladder matches have passed, the top 4 teams will enter into a Single Elimination Battle Royale to determine the season’s winners. This single elimination “mini-cup” will take place on the last Sunday of every season!

“We’re ecstatic to have Overwatch as an official title on the Orena ranking system. With this being the first Blizzard title on the Orena platform, we look forward to dealing with something fresh and that has been so well received on the “eSports circuit”. With the support of our prestigious event partners at SteelSeries, we envision an epic start to what looks to become a staple in the competitive gaming market”. – Luca Tucconi, CEO at Orena.

“eSports is in our hearts, it pumps in our blood and we are passionate about development of eSports not only within South Africa but globally too. With this in mind we are excited to set a new challenge for the community and bring forward with ORENA the Overwatch Champions Ladder. Overwatch has already created a lot of hype in the community, and we hope to add fuel to this fire and encourage all forms of gamers to #RISEUP and take the challenge. Good luck to all teams competing and may the best

team win.

Remember, winning is what we do. It’s not just everything in this new age of eSports, it’s the only thing”.
