Overwatch has various new paths to going professional. You can form your own team and compete in the amateur leagues which have a definite hierarchy to themselves. Further information about these ladders will now be available on a new official twitter handle. The twitter handle is @owpathtopro and will be regularly tweeting out updates and news about Overwatch Contenders and Overwatch Open Division.
Welcome to the home of Open Division and Contenders.
