Open Division Practice Season Announced, Community Response is Split

It was announced today, September 13, that the Overwatch Tier-3 league, Open Division, would be having a practice season, rather than a third season in 2019. This will run for six weekends, beginning on October 12, which means that it will also be running during Blizzcon, a yearly Blizzard event in Anaheim.

Those competing in this practice season would be competing for an in-game spray which can be seen in the featured image.

Varied Reception

This, among other things, has fans split. Questions have arisen concerning the validity of the semi-pro scene for some time, and this further drives some to question this. Yet, on the other hand, Contenders, Overwatch’s Tier-2 league, will also not be having a third season in 2019 due to the Gauntlet. Because of that, some understand that Open Division would also stay on a similar schedule and welcome the extra practice.

Here are a handful of the community responses to the announcement:
