For the past two years, we were focusing on MOBA titles DOTA 2, League of Legends and Mobile Legends. This month, we took a leap of faith and dived into the First Person Shooter (FPS) genre. After finding out that many Overwatch players were looking for fun and meaningful Overwatch events, we decided to organise TeleMatch Overwatch. It was held on 26 September 2020, with prize partner Aftershock, streaming partner The Gym and supporting partner Battle Royale Singapore.
With every TeleMatch comes its challenges, and glad that we managed to overcome them with the support of the community. It was a pleasant surprise to see the Overwatch players liking and sharing the event. Eight teams registered, with a team made up of stand-ins.
Interestingly, the facilitators and casters who helped out this TeleMatch were from the other game communities. We had players from the League of Legends, DOTA 2 and Valorant community volunteering their time and effort to facilitate and cast TeleMatch Overwatch. Despite Overwatch not being their main game, they wanted Telematch to run smoothly so that the Overwatch players can have a fun and exciting experience. We are grateful to witness such generosity across gaming communities.
Unexpectedly, we had around 25 players watching the stream, peaking at 39 viewers. We also managed to wish Vas Sux player Radiax a happy birthday!
The teams treated us with exciting games and match ups during TeleMatch Overwatch. We had the stand-in team Bruh.. qualify for Top 4 and finalists FES Academy Riptide and Vas Sux playing a rematch. The finals was so close that both teams entered the Third and Fourth round in the Havana Escort map.
