Overwatch League Going Online

Last week, the Overwatch League cancelled all live events until at least May as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak. The updated schedule has been released which will see a full set of matches hosted by the Overwatch League rather than individual teams.

To mitigate travel and latency issues the new schedule will be matching up teams in similar regions. Blizzard said the new schedule is “designed to maximize fairness between teams, factoring in the total amount of matches played each week,” but Pacific Conferences teams will “generally” play more frequently than teams in the Atlantic Conference, so that all teams will be caught up to the number of matches they had been scheduled to play by the season midpoint.”
