Continuing the ongoing North American competitive Overwatch action, Rivalcade brings us the Overwatch Rumble held on April 22nd and 23rd. This weekend’s Rumble also showcases the return to North American competition for Cloud9 and EnVyUs. Both teams had recently returned from Korea competing in APEX Season 2. With EnVyUs heading back to Korea soon for APEX Season 3, this competition will be our one and only opportunity in the near future to see how our North American champions of the past, EnVyUs, match up against recent teams dominating the scene such as Rogue and Selfless Gaming. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the format and the groups for the Rumble.
Group stage matches will be played in a round robin format with the top two teams from each group advancing to the second group stage of the tournament. Each match in the group stage will be played in a best-of-three format with teams alternating map picks from a pool of 8 options.
Two matches from each group will be streamed on the twitch.tv/livethebattle. If you miss out on any of the action or want to follow along any of the other matches, we'll be covering all the action on our match ticker and our event page. Follow along the action this weekend to see which team is the true king of North America!
