This week, the Overwatch League announced its schedule for a Community Countdown to Season 2. If you’re looking forward to Season 2 of the OWL, which kicks off on February 14, you can get an early dose starting February 9!
The Countdown begins February 9 with two days of scrims on stage, between league teams. The scrims, five scheduled for each day, will begin at 12:00 PST. Each scrim will be a best-of-three, with maps chosen from the Stage One list. It should be exciting to see the new rosters in action, especially the expansion teams.
The first match-ups of the two days of scrims won’t be seen again until Stage 4 (according to the schedule posted as of February 8). If you’re keen to see Paris Eternal vs. New York Excelsior or Dallas Fuel vs. London Spitfire, don’t tune in late!
From February 11-13, the Countdown will feature custom matches between talent, players and popular streamers. Monday will feature 1v1s with Ashe and Ana, while Tuesday will be 6v6 Capture the Flag matches between the expansion teams.
The last day of the Countdown will be Wednesday, February 13, the day before Season 2 commences. There’ll be a single best-of-five showmatch that day featuring a combination of talent and streamers.
We’ve hand-picked Overwatch Streamers to make this Community Countdown something special. #OWL2019
