Overwatch Contenders teams ‘go on strike’ Mid-Broadcast

Players competing in the local Overwatch Contenders tournament are staging a type of walkout against Blizzard. Participants in the European Overwatch Contenders Summer Series competition declined to compete after a match was abruptly halted by a rule of play. Blizzard held an Overwatch Contenders event to pass the time during the Overwatch League’s off-week as teams recovered from the beautiful chaos of the Midseason Madness tournament the previous week.

The Overwatch Contenders Summer Series is a double-elimination competition with a winner’s bracket and a loser’s bracket, just as Midseason Madness. According to a number of the players who participated and the tournament’s rules website, the European winner’s bracket final between 01 Esports and Munich Esports today was listed as a best of seven. The winner would advance to the grand final, and the loser would face the winner of the loser’s bracket final.

Other than the grand finals, best-of-seven matchups are uncommon in the Overwatch League proper. Knowing this, a Munich Esports player contacted a Blizzard tournament administrator to inquire if the match was, in fact, a best-of-seven affair. The player obtained confirmation and assurance that the winner’s finals match was, in fact, a best-of-seven affair.

“Regular or protracted daytime naps might harm sound sleep at night. It may be more difficult or disrupted to fall asleep at night after taking a nap throughout the day “Blattner explains to PEOPLE. “Missing out on nocturnal sleep can induce extreme daytime drowsiness, either because hectic schedules don’t afford sufficient sleep opportunity, or because of an issue with the quality of sleep itself.” According to Blattner, a good night’s sleep is good for the body and restorative, so a shift in sleep patterns—needing more sleep at night or taking naps during the day—might indicate a health issue.
