British Esports Championships

S2 Overwatch (Schools)

All matches will be a “4-game set”, where 4 maps will be played regardless of the outcome of the first three maps. The winner of each match will be the team that has won more maps than the other. The map pool will be released one week before season start.

In the event of a tiebreaker, a fifth “Control” map will be played. This map will be chosen by admins and may change each week.
