Overwatch Contenders returns in 2019 with Season 1!

Contenders in 2019 have seen many changes highlighted here. Here's a few things that have changed:

  • The amount of teams per region have decreased from 12 to 8, except China.

  • Contenders NA has been split into two regions: NA West and NA East. Each region will have 8 teams.

  • The amount of seasons per year have decreased from 3 to 2.

  • Soft region locking: Teams can only have up to 3 non-resident players on their team (some exceptions apply).

  • New Live events include Atlantic Showdown, Pacific Showdown, and The Gauntlet.


As a part of our flair clean-up process, we've removed the flair from all previous Contenders teams and will be re-adding them in the near future (this week). That's 68 teams in total, so feel free to rep your favorite team!
