Community Lead and Coach voting begins for the Overwatch World Cup


Today, it was announced that the Coach and Community Lead positions for the US and Canadian Overwatch World Cup 2018 teams are officially in contention.  While Blizzard has final say on the GM spot, 3 coaches and 10 community lead spots are available for the community to vote on.

However, only a select group of players will be able to vote on the coaches. The top 150 ranked players from PC, Xbox, and PlayStation will be allowed to vote from each qualified country, ensuring that those with a fair bit of game knowledge and competitive know-how decide who coaches their country.

The community lead position is, on the other hand, open to everyone. Per Blizzard's description, the community leaders will be responsible for " rallying their community and marketing their team to the masses."
