Information[edit]

Format[edit]

  • Regular Season - Begins February 14th
    • Matches will play out live from the Blizzard Arena each week. All 20 teams will play 28 matches over four five-week stages, for a total of seven matches per stage. With the exception of Stage 4, the top eight performing teams at the end of each stage will participate in a single-elimination Stage Playoff tournament for cash prizes. Though the season is divided into four stages, wins and losses will count towards teams' full-season records and all-important seeding for the postseason.
      • Stage 1 - February 14th - March 17th, 2019
      • Stage 2 - April 4th - May 5th, 2019
      • Stage 3 - June 6th - July 7th, 2019
      • Stage 4 - July 25th - August 25th, 2019
    • All matches in the Regular Season will consist of four-map sets.
    • Each Stage of the Regular Season will have its own 12 map pool.
  • Postseason (Playoffs) - August 30th - September 29th, 2019
    • After Stage 4 finishes, the top Atlantic and Pacific division teams, along with the next four teams in the standings regardless of division, will automatically qualify for playoffs.
    • The seventh- through twelfth-place teams in the overall standings will also have a chance to qualify for the playoffs. These teams will be pitted against each other in a single-elimination tournament, with the top two teams being able to join the playoffs for a total of eight teams.
  • All-Star - August 25th - August 26th, 2018
    • The 2019 All-Star Weekend will take place in the middle of the Overwatch League Regular Season, during a larger break between Stages 2 and 3.

Transfer Window[edit]

The Transfer Window is defined as the period of time in which Teams can complete trades involving other Teams and/or sign new Players. The Transfer Window is the only time in which these changes can occur following October 30th, 2017.

  • The Free Agent Signing Period will open on January 22nd, 2018.
  • The Trade Window will open on February 11th, 2018.
  • Newly acquired players may be added to a team’s active roster beginning February 21st, 2018, the first day of Stage 2.
  • The Transfer Window closes on April 3rd, 2018, and rosters will lock for the remainder of the season and playoffs.[1]
