Overwatch Contenders Trials/Open Division Update:

In December, we launched our extended Path to Pro program with the 2018 Overwatch Open Division Season 1 sign-ups—and players overwhelmingly heeded the call. More than 17,000 heroes worldwide signed up to test their skills in an organized competitive setting!

Season 1 ended on Feb. 11, which means it’s time for our first Contenders Trials of the year. Contenders Trials is a promotion/relegation tournament which, in its first iteration, will allow the best-performing teams out of Open Division the chance to elevate themselves into their region’s available Contenders slots. In future Contenders Trials for each region, top Open Division teams will battle the least successful Contenders teams to try and capture their slots.

To see which Open Division teams will be competing for a place in their region’s Contenders via Contenders Trials, Feb. 12–March 4, and more, check out our latest blog: https://overwatchleague.com/news/21508788.
