Last year, the Overwatch League Playoffs were held a week following the Regular Season. Accordingly, only the top 4 teams took part. However, for the Overwatch League Post-Season in 2020, the format is changing!
To continue, with roughly 3 weeks of competition left, the format has changed. The announcement was made in video form on Youtube, as viewable below:
In summary, all the action will kick off a month after the regular season starts. Specifically, on September 3rd, the two regions will be split into two brackets.
Respectively, seeding and choice will correspond to seasonal placings. Naturally, the higher seeds have earned an advantage in this regard. Following two weeks of action, the top 2 from each region would be obtained.
Finally, it will all come down to a double-elimination bracket between the final four. For the most part, the tournament will be online. However, the top two North American teams are flying out to compete against the Asian rosters!
The 2020 Overwatch League Post-Season Format all boils down to $4,000,000 of prize. First place earns a whopping $1,500,000.
