The Overwatch Heroes Rumble pits Pacific players against the West

The Overwatch Pacific Championship will face off against Europe and NA

Blizzard Entertainment

Taipei is about to be blessed with some Overwatch action. This December, Blizzard will host four teams from the Overwatch Pacific Championship at the Blizzard Estadium in Taipei. These four teams will be defending their hometown honor:

  • Blank Esports (BLK)
  • Flash Wolves (FW)
  • Hong Kong Attitude (HKA)
  • Machi Esports (M17)

These teams will be facing off against four captains from North America and Europe. These captains will be assembling their own teams and leading them into battle.

  • Dylan “aKm” Bignet (France)
  • Joonas “zappis” Alakurtti (Finland)
  • Liam “Mangachu” Campbell (Canada)
  • Brian “Kephrii” St. Pierre (United States)

The Overwatch Heroes Rumble will take place over three days: December 15th through to the 17th. There’s honor, bragging rights, and the accolades from fans hanging on the line.

Blizzard has recently announced major changes to the Overwatch competitive ecosystem, including a global Contenders system in seven regions. The Overwatch Heroes Rumble should give an insight as to the potential of esports outside the Overwatch League. As a bonus, viewers will get some esports fun just before the holidays.

Viewers can tune in at the following broadcast times to catch the action:

  • Day 1: December 15, 12:00AM–6:00AM PST
  • Day 2: December 16, 12:00AM–6:00AM PST
  • Day 3: December 17, 12:00AM–6:00AM PST
