Indeed, the Overwatch League 2020 Playoffs are almost here. They signal the end of the season and the arrival of the Grand Finals. Thanks to the postseason changes, all 20 teams will be involved. Below, we’ll be previewing the playoffs for both regions.

A few differences outline the North American and Asian Playoffs. However, the same outcome will be achieved – two teams making it to the Final Four. Here are some of the differences:

  • Dates – NA (3-13th Sep), Asia (4-13 Sep)
  • Teams – NA (13), Asia (7)
  • Prize – NA ($625,000), Asia ($325,000)

Also, both events will be online. In terms of format, the Overwatch League 2020 Playoffs consist of the following:

  • Single-Elimination Play-Ins will slice the competition down
  • A Double Elimination Bracket (4 or 8 teams respectively) will determine the top two seeds

Chiefly, all streams will be available on the Overwatch League YouTube channel. The schedule involves two bursts of gameplay across three days each.

In terms of predictions, we’ve made some already. The main narrative for this season is whether a team from the Asian region can finally claim become World Champion. All eyes are on Shanghai Dragons at Playoffs. Everything is building up to the Grand Finals taking place on October 8-10th.
