About[edit]

Overwatch Arena Clash is a grassroots esports tournament run up and down the UK. Teams in BELONG Gaming Arenas nationwide, battle it out to become the Arena Clash champions.

Note: Due to the 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak the tournament was suspended after the group stage and remains so until further notice. In addition due to the delayed schedule the final will no longer be held at Insomnia 66 (Also cancelled due to the outbreak)[1]

Format[edit]

  • General Rules: Competitive Mode
  • Group Stage:
    • All matches are played in a four (4) maps format (Overwatch League Format):
      • If both teams tie a map, tiebreaker will not be played and the tie map will not be shown on the scoreboard;
      • If both teams tie the series (2-2), a fifth map will be played (Control)
    • Top two (2) teams from each group advance to the playoffs
    • Third and Fourth placed teams from each group participate in a secondary playoff bracket for another shot at a prize winnings
  • Playoffs: Single Elimination, Bo5 matches
    • First map is always fixed (but varies from playoff stage), then loser picks next map & winner picks side
    • If after the 5th map, the score is tied, a sixth map will be played using the unpicked map from game 5
  • Grand Finals: Offline Bo5 match held on stage at Insomnia66
