Korea is having its own league event for Overwatch, and top teams from EU and NA are invited. The OGN Overwatch APEX Season is kicking off with a prize pool of about $200,000 USD up for grabs.
16 teams divided into four groups, each with 3 Korean teams and 1 invited team from EU and NA. Rouge, NRG, EnVyUs and REUNITED are the teams that will be seen facing off against the best of Korea has to offer. Will these top teams got what it takes to take on Korea? OR Korea still has some catching up to do to stay toe-to-toe with the rest of the world?
The groups are as follows:
- Flash Nox
- Rhinos Gaming Titan
- Afreeca Freecs Blue
- BK Stars
- KongDoo Uncia
- MVP Space
- Mighty Storm
- LW Blue
- KongDoo Panthera
The tournament format can be found here.
In other news, pubstar turned pro player Kyb of REUNITED is taking a step back from the main team and focus on streaming for REUNITED. The rest of the team has a replacement in place that will debut in the matches here, starting in October 7.
The OGN Overwatch APEX League will be casted by MonteChristo and DoA for the English cast. We will update the article once with the official stream link later.
