How Does 'Overwatch' League Work and How Can You Join? Here Are the Basics

When Blizzard Entertainment announced the debut of the Overwatch League (OWL), gamers around the world became immediately curious. The popular multiplayer first-person shooter has some 200,000-400,000 players who log on every week, but there are obviously some legendary gamers who are consistently top-ranked from week to week. 

Which is why Blizzard decided to launch the OWL — to showcase those players to the rest of the world.

The OWL is made up of 20 teams, which are based in different cities from all over the globe. Here's the total list of teams that are divided up into two groups: Atlantic and Pacific.
