Overwatch World Cup

by Andrew Medlicott

I guess the best way to start is to provide context and a bit of overview about why I was in America. I play a competitive computer game called “Overwatch” semi professionally. “Overwatch” is a game in which two teams of 6 choose characters with different roles and abilities, one team defends objectives while the other team tries to take those objectives. After a round ends the defenders become the attackers and vice versa, whoever takes the most objectives wins the game.
