Welcome back heroes! It’s a New Year and a new season of NUEL Overwatch with some tweaks to our format, prizes and on the night handling.

Signups will be opening in the next few days so stay tuned!

Format

Based on feedback we are adding Best-of-Three’s as part of the qualification phase of the tournament as well as running a total of 5 weeks of games for all teams. Here’s a graphic to illustrate the format:

Prizes

1st place: Per player: £45 battle.net vouchers + NUEL Winners Hoodie

2nd place: Per player: £30 battle.net vouchers

3rd place: Per player: £15 battle.net vouchers

On the night

The Stream

Players have expressed uncertainty at how the games that are streamed are chosen. To address this we are introducing a clearer system to allow anyone the possibility of their games being streamed.

At 6pm a post will be made in the NUEL Overwatch Facebook group (found here). Teams who want to be streamed should comment with their team name, captains battle tag and a vice captains battle tag. The broadcast team will then attempt to contact you and get your game streamed.

Admin Support

This season we are migrating our admin support to discord, including the Captain’s meeting. If you need to get in touch with an admin please send a message to the support text channel on the server and join an empty help room. Admins will then get in touch as soon as possible.

We will send out Discord invites the day of the first matches (16th Feb) via email and on the Facebook group. If you fail to get one please contact an admin and they’ll sort you out with one.
