The Overwatch League is contacting top Overwatch players and inviting them to participate in a scouting report to share with competitive team owners.
In a recent update, Commissioner of Overwatch League, Nate Nanzer, confirmed the Overwatch League Office was intent on building “a robust ecosystem that will support and grow competitive Overwatch” and had contacted a “select group of top players” to participate in the survey.
Holding out for a hero? Here’s everything we have on Overwatch’s new heroes.
To be on the League’s shortlist, players must have had a top-500 finish (based on skill rating) in Seasons 3 or 4, reached a playoff finish in a recent “high-caliber tournament” such as APEX Season 2, or qualify under “other distinguishing qualifications indicative of top-tier talent”.
Being a top player in and of itself isn’t enough, though. To be considered, all players must be in good standing in the community, be of age, as well as able to lawfully participate in professional competition.
