Overwatch Contenders (OWC), colloquially called "tier 2", was a major series of professional Overwatch tournaments held around the world, organized by Blizzard Entertainment. Contenders acts as the development series below the Overwatch League for aspiring pro players. Beginning in 2017, it was the highest level of competition in North America and Europe prior to the Overwatch League. In 2018, the tournament was expanded globally, and introduced a promotion-relegation system. Contenders maintained its status as a battlefield for aspiring talent throughout its duration. Following the disbandment of the Overwatch League, in January 2024 Overwatch Contenders was discontinued as the Overwatch Champions Series combined all tiers of professional Overwatch, combining the current Path to Pro ecosystem into a single open circuit.

Overview[edit]

History[edit]

Contenders began in 2017 in Contenders Season Zero in Europe and North America.

Contenders returned for Contenders Season 1 later that year in North America and Europe.

2018 Season[edit]

Beginning in 2018, Contenders expanded to seven regions:

  • North America
  • South America
  • Australia
  • China
  • Europe
  • Korea
  • Pacific

In addition to expanding to seven regions, the Trials system was introduced, and relegation between Contenders and Open Division was revealed. The top 4 teams from the previous Open Division season, and the bottom 4 teams from the previous Contenders season, would play in Trials to determine who would play in the next season of Contenders.

Beginning in 2018 Season 1 of Contenders, Overwatch League teams were given the opportunity to establish Academy teams to develop talent in Contenders. All Overwatch League teams except for the Los Angeles Valiant, Dallas Fuel and the Seoul Dynasty established Academy teams for the first season of 2018 Contenders, with the Dallas Fuel establishing their Academy team during the second season.

2019 Season[edit]

On October 30th, 2018, Blizzard announced changes to Contenders for the 2019 Season.[1] The number of teams in all regions would be reduced from twelve to eight, and North America would be split into two regions, North America West and North America East, to accomodate OWL academy teams, bringing the number of Contenders tournaments to eight. A number of other changes were also introduced:

  • Reducing the number of Seasons from 3 to 2.
  • Making each Contenders Season longer.
  • Adjusting the prizing to better reward top teams.

In addition to these changes, Blizzard announced that they would be introducing a "soft region lock" for Contenders 2019. Contenders teams will be restricted to a maximum of three non-resident players on their roster.

The Gauntlet, hosted at the end of the year, marked the first global Contenders tournament. Regions were split into Atlantic and Pacific, with each hosting a tournament between seasons to determine seeding in The Gauntlet: best performing team won an extra seed for their region, while the worst two teams lost one seed for their region. All the interregional tournaments were held offline.

2020 Season[edit]

Widespread changes were announced for the 2020 season on October 10th, 2019. [2] North America West and North America East were merged back into one region, North America, reducing the number of regions back to seven. Regions returned to twelve teams. The soft region lock was removed. The tournament format was also changed. There would be four weeks of Contenders play per season. Every two Contenders weeks, there would be an Open Division season. In between each week of Contenders, there would be a Trials week to determine who is promoted to Contenders. Instead of a traditional group stage system, there would be a single-elimination bracket each week, where teams competed for points that would determine playoffs seeding, where the 8 teams with the most points in their region play in a double elimination playoff bracket. China strayed from this format, with their first week consisting of an 8-team single elimination bracket. All subsequent weeks consisted of a 12-team group stage (4 groups of 3) into an 8-team single elimination playoff.

More changes were announced for 2020 Season 2 on June 23rd, 2020. [3] The Pacific region was cut, with the Season 1 victors, Talon Esports, receiving a direct invite to Trials Korea. Europe and North America would shift to five monthly double-elimination tournaments consisting of eight teams, with Trials in between each month and Open Division every two months, preceding the August, September, and November tournaments. There will be no playoffs. Korea would move to a 10-team round robin (2 groups of 5) followed by a 6-team single elimination playoff bracket. Australia would shift to a similar format, with an 8-team round robin (one group) followed by a 4-team double elimination playoff bracket. South America would play four "tournaments", a 10-team round robin (2 groups of 5) with a 4-team single elimination playoff bracket, to compete for points for playoffs seeding, with a Trials tournament between each Contenders tournament and Open Division every two Contenders tournaments. China saw no changes.

The Gauntlet returned in 2020 with its competition modified. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Blizzard opted to regionalize the competition: North America, South America, Asia (Australia, China, Korea, Pacific), and Europe. Each region held open qualifiers, with top teams advancing to face top Contenders teams directly invited to the event.

2021 Season[edit]

Changes were announced for the 2021 Contenders season on March 4th, 2021. [4] The South America region would not be returning. North America and Europe would consist of eight-team double elimination brackets roughly every month, with Open Division and Trials every other tournament. There would be no playoffs. Korea would stick with the 10-team format but with changes to their playoffs system by introducing an inter-league stage to determine seeding between the two regular-season groups as well as changing playoffs to a stepladder format. China would have eight teams compete for points in two regular-season tournaments, consisting of a round robin (one group) and a four-team double elimination playoff. The 6 highest-point teams would compete in a double-elimination playoff bracket. Australia would retain the same format from 2020 Season 2, except with 6 teams instead of 8. North America and Europe played three seasons, while China, Korea, and Australia played two.

2022 Season[edit]

As professional Overwatch transitioned to Overwatch 2, Contenders received a format overhaul to accomodate for the Overwatch 2's release cycle and to "open up the ecosystem and create an accessible Path to Pro for all players".[5][6] Instead of a promotion-relegation closed league system, all regions would pivot to an open tournament system. Open Division would no longer be the only pathway to Contenders. All five regions from 2021 would return for 2022. With this new system, Contenders Trials would no longer be held.

Summer Series[edit]

Overwatch Contenders Summer Series logo

Summer Series, the first Contenders event of the year, would consist of two parts, A-Sides and B-Sides.[7] A-Sides consist of a 64-team single-elimination "qualifier" bracket, where the top 8 teams are seeded into a double-elimination "main event" bracket. B-Sides are invitation-only events where top teams from A-Sides automatically qualify. Top Open Division teams during the Summer Series cycle would get early access to Overwatch 2 and priority registration to A-Sides alongside prize money. This move drew controversy, as many teams competed for the Overwatch 2 access--performance would not heavily alter their odds in the Contenders event due to the open bracket format--dampening the competitive integrity. While each region's A-Sides event is the same format, not every region has the same B-Sides format. The table below breaks it down:

Between Summer Series B-Sides and Run It Back, Australia held Shimada Showdown, inviting the eight B-Sides teams and eight Open Division teams for a brief competition.

Run It Back[edit]

All regions held Run It Back in November, which followed similar formats to B-Sides, except for outside qualifiers coming from Open Division instead of A-Sides. Only a few regions changed competition format; Korea held one eight-team round robin group which went into a six-team single-elimination playoffs, while China held two four-team round robin groups which went into a four-team double-elimination playoffs.

Pacific Showdown[edit]

In December, Pacific Showdown returned for the first time since 2019, with the top teams from China, Korea, and Australia Run It Back qualifying. Top teams from Japan, Taiwan/Hong Kong/Macau, Thailand, and Southeast Asia were invited to a qualifier, with the winning team representing a non-Contenders region for the event. The prize for Pacific Showdown was USD$150,000. During qualifiers, it was announced that Contenders Pacific would be returning in 2023 after last being held in Season 1 of 2020.

2023 Season[edit]

In a blog post on February 8th[8], it was revealed that Contenders teams would be able to qualify for select 2023 Overwatch League events. The East region would feature Contenders integration all season, while the West region would see limited Contenders participation. Region lock was reintroduced to all East region Contenders competitions; teams would need to play at least three resident players at all times. Due to Overwatch's servers going offline in China, they no longer had a region; Chinese teams would compete in Contenders Pacific--now called Asia Pacific.

Overwatch League Integration[edit]

In the East region, Contenders Asia Pacific, Korea, and Australia would send their top teams from the Spring Series to Spring Stage Opens, concurrent to Spring Stage Qualifers. Top teams from the Spring Stage Opens will participate in Spring Stage Knockouts. In the West, top Contenders teams from North America and Europe to the West Pro-Am, which takes place before the season. After the Midseason Madness, top Contenders teams in the Spring Stage compete with Overwatch League teams in the Summer Stage Qualifiers. Concurrently, top teams from Contenders Summer Series in Asia Pacific, Korea, and Australia will play in the Summer Stage Opens to face Overwatch League teams in the Summer Stage Knockouts.

As East region Contenders tournaments were shorter to accomodate Overwatch League competition, those regions would host an additional Fall Series. North America and Europe returned to a promotion-relegation system following the Pro-Am. Bottom teams would now be relegated to Open Division playoffs instead of Contenders Trials. Thailand received its own Contenders tournament for the Summer Series in partnership with AIS eSports. The top 4 teams competed offline--the first (and last) offline Contenders competition outside of Korea since 2019.

Predecessors[edit]

Precursor leagues ran in 2016 and 2017 before Contenders was expanded to each respective region.

Timeline[edit]

Two-Way Players[edit]

Starting with the 2019 Overwatch League season, teams and players may negotiate the right to designate the player as eligible to compete in Contenders on their affiliated Academy team. Any player on the roster may agree to be eligible for Contenders play, but a maximum of four players may be designated as “two-way” players during each Overwatch League stage, and those players must be identified and submitted to the League Office prior to each stage.

Two-way players are eligible to compete in Contenders, subject to the following rules:

  • Regardless of where they play, two-way players count toward the Overwatch League roster limit of 12 and must earn the same salary and benefits. Two-way players also will count towards the eight-player Contenders roster limit for weeks in which their Contenders team designates them as eligible to compete.
  • Two-way players lose their Contenders eligibility if they appear in more than two Overwatch League matches in a stage.
  • A maximum of two designated two-way players may compete in any single Contenders match.
  • No player will be eligible to appear in both Contenders and Overwatch League matches in the same week.
