A new, all-female Overwatch team has just been crowned the winner of the Nios Heroes of the Storm tournament, and it’s not even the biggest Overwatch tournament ever.
This is, by far, the biggest one to date, and as such, it’s going to be a big deal.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be taking a look at the five teams vying for the trophy, and the teams who will be on the podium in the event’s grand finals.
But first, let’s dive into the news, shall we?
A new team has taken the NIOH trophy awayFrom the first wave of news, there were a few initial thoughts.
There was some chatter that Overwatch would be returning to its old competitive formula, with teams competing for a trophy in the same manner as Overwatch League.
This would mean that each team would be given a trophy for winning their team’s first three games of the tournament, with the remaining games having to be decided by a tiebreaker.
This was a bit of a gamble, since there were several teams in the scene who were already winning tournaments, and there was no real reason for anyone to change their approach.
However, it seems like it could be working, with two new teams joining the competition.
Team Sivir was announced by Blizzard earlier this week, and is the first team to compete in the tournament.
They are an entirely new team, with a new Overwatch roster, with their new Overwatch League roster.
This means that the new team will not have the traditional trophy and is instead going for a brand new award.
The first round of the Overwatch League is on November 12th, and teams will be given three chances to claim the trophy.
Team Siviri will need to defeat the next three teams to take home the trophy and earn the right to compete at BlizzCon in the coming months.
So, what does this mean for Niohs players?
If you haven’t been following Overwatch League closely, you might be wondering why this tournament was not the first one announced.
Well, the team’s roster is currently up for grabs, and they are the first to compete.
However, if you’ve been following esports in North America, you know that the Overwatch esports scene has been in flux.
A lot of teams have moved to Europe, while others have moved into the United States, and so on.
This, in turn, has made the Overwatch scene more competitive.
“There’s been some roster changes, some roster purgings, and that kind of thing,” explained Overwatch League MVP Andrew “Omnipoint” Kessel, as the Overwatch Esports Association (EEOA) is the league’s governing body.
“The fact that the Sivirs roster has been put together really solidifies that there is a good team in this League.
We have a solid roster and we want to keep improving it.”
So why was it so hard to find a roster for this event?
The Overwatch League has always been a great opportunity for players to make a name for themselves, but there is some concern that players aren’t able to earn trophies enough to compete for the title of the best player in the world.
Omnis, however, is different.
As a member of the new Overwatch team, this new Overwatch lineup is more likely to be recognized as being better than previous rosters.
This might sound like a big problem, but it’s actually a great thing.
It means that players can earn trophies more easily and can be more competitive, and these are benefits that other teams can benefit from.
For example, the SIVirs team is a team with two veteran players, which has given them a good advantage in terms of playing style.
Players are now more likely be able to find ways to make the most of their Overwatch skill.
If a player can play well, and win against other top players, they will get a lot of recognition.
There is also the opportunity for veterans to make more of an impact.
For example, there is an advantage for players who have been playing for a long time.
If a player has played Overwatch competitively for a while, they might be more comfortable with their gameplay and their heroes.
One of the biggest problems that players have had with Overwatch has been the lack of support for veterans.
It’s not that Overwatch isn’t good for veterans, it just that it has been underperforming for the last couple of years.
The lack of veteran support was a major reason why the game was never able to catch on with veterans.
The NioH trophy could help alleviate that problem.
What do you think?
Would you like to see veteran support?
What would you like Blizzard to add to the game in the future?
