The fall of 2017 is shaping up to have a bountiful amount of international Overwatch tournaments, with APAC Premier 2017 and the World Cup playoffs looming in the distance. Staking its claim in the calendar on the 15th of October is the OGN Seoul Supercup, featuring the best of Korea’s and China’s elite echelons competing at the Hanyang University Stadium.
Fighting on home turf are Cloud9 Kongdoo and Lunatic-Hai. Cloud9 Kongdoo were the runner ups in the APEX Season 3 grand finals, and recently reached the semifinals of APEX Season 4 in flying colors. Lunatic-Hai have on their end held the Iron Throne for two APEX seasons since Season 2, but were dethroned after their elimination in the Season 4 quarterfinals.
Coming west of Korea are the roaring dragons of China, who've sent Lucky Future and Miraculous Youngster as their representatives. Lucky Future snagged the bronze medal in the Premier Series 2017 - Spring, but failed to pass the quarterfinals in the Premier Series 2017 - Summer and the Premier Series 2017 - Finals. Miraculous Youngster on the other hand have been declared the best team in the China, taking both the Premier Series 2017 - Summer and the Premier Series 2017 - Finals trophies.
The tournament will use a single-elimination bracket, beginning with Lucky Future vs. Cloud9 Kongdoo, and Lunatic-Hai battling vs Miraculous Youngster in the semifinals. The two winners from those matches will meet in the grand finals to determine who claims the prize in the Seoul Supercup.
