Immortals win NA Overwatch Contenders Season Zero

Despite two late additions to the team, Immortals were unstoppable.

Season Zero of North America’s Overwatch Contenders tournament has come to an end with Immortals taking down Team Liquid in the finals to claim the top spot in the region.

After a rocky trip through the open qualifier, thanks in large part to the very late addition of two Korean players to the team the night before the qualifier began, Immortals breezed through the rest of the tournament. During the Group Stage, the team won all but one of their games — which ended in a draw.

During the Playoff portion of the tournament Immortals faced some of the best teams in the region sweeping Faze Clan in the first round and only losing one match — their only loss of the entire Playoff stage — in the best of seven finals against Team Liquid.

With their win here Immortals take home a $25,000 prize for finishing first in the tournament, as well as a spot in Overwatch Contenders Season One which is scheduled to start August 14.
