It’s once again time for the Overwatch World Cup. This will be the second time that Blizzard has held the event, which pits national teams from all over the world against each other to determine which country will be the Overwatch World Champion.

This year, the event includes a Group Stage qualifier that will help more teams participate than the direct invite system used for last year’s competition. The tournament’s qualifier is broken up into groups of four with the top two advancing after the Group Stage.

The first two groups to compete will be Groups A and B who will battle it out in Shanghai this weekend July 14-16.
