Whilst European Overwatch still scans the horizon on a daily basis for their next major tournament, the HND Overwatch Invitational arrives to tide over teams and fans alike until Blizzard deliver us to the Promised Land. In the wake of the incredible conclusion of the European PIT Championship, the HND Invitational will continue to carry the torch and further showcase the depth and breadth of competitors in the European scene.

After fighting their way through grueling qualifiers, Alfa Squad, Owly Six, Team Singularity Gorillaz, böda socken earned their spots along with the 12 invited teams to compete for the €1,000 prize. With the teams now finalized, let's take a look at the format and groups tournament:

Buzzing to be casting this one, honestly we're very blessed to have so many people volunteer to make these events happen, you wouldn't believe the work that goes into these.

Looking forward to EU showcasing why they're the best region some more ;)

I really like the team list. Monthly Melee played their part to give less exposed teams a chance and Denial surprised a lot of people. Need more tournaments like this!
