Overwatch Free Weekend Event

From November 18th-21st Overwatch will be free to play, so why not try to get some people into a group and battle it out.

  • When: November 19th at 5:00 P.M. EST
  • Where: Overwatch American Region Servers

If we can get at least 12 people we will make a custom game for us to play on. Up to 18 people will be able to join the custom game, however, 6 of those will have to spectate until we can rotate players out.

1. NOTICE:

The new hero, Sombra, will only be available through the Play Test Region. If you want to play with her in this event we all will have to download the PTR as well as the base game. Since that is just too much of a hassle to deal with, we WILL NOT be playing on PTR servers.

Sombra has been introduced in the most recent patch. You will not need to download the PTR for any reason now. I reiterate WE WILL BE PLAYING THE BASE GAME FOR THIS EVENT.


1st place prize: 5,000 Points

2nd place prize: 4,000 Points

3rd place prize: 3,000 Points


All participants who join the Discord and post a link to their GB account will recieve 250 points as well as a shiny medal.

    Nice (short though) event.

    Still can't get it out from my head - what information or algorithm you used to share prize points? I got 250 (and OrangeBandito), while Devieus got 3000, wohSiesta - 4000 and MarioDox - 5000. Please explain before I get to any conclusion myself based on this current information.
    I forgot to keep close track of things so I had to ask my friend who joined us to rank the three people he though did the best. He gave me those names, so I went with that. My mind was else were so I apologize if you feel cheated. Donated 2k to you and orange out of my own account since you're the only other two that joined us for the event and have a GB account.

    Oh, I see. Sorry if my last sentence sounded resentful. I just couldn't understand how you're going to rank players since there's no way to see other players' stats and score in game's scoreboard (I thought of crazy version where you ask all participants to screenshot their aftergame results and send it to discord to see haha). You don't need to donate to me, it's okay, I don't feel cheated and respect your friend's opinion :)

    But maybe next time there should be a way to rank participants by real in-game stats or info, or not rank at all and provide only "participant" reward. Just my two cents. Keep up the good work!

    I wish I could join you but..........the file size of Overwatch (30 GB available hard drive space on PC) will make my comp go old man superman mode from downloading in such a snail pace, and my country has a tiny...tiny..."tiny" little internet complication that can guarantee my absolute "disconnected from server".......


    SO GO AND HAVE A SPLENDID GAME!

    The newest patch was just released, so if you're trying to download the free trial at this time you will probably run into some problems connecting with their servers.
