One of the focal points of Blizzcon is the Overwatch World Cup (OWWC) where countries from all over the globe come to compete for national pride on a huge stage. But, when all the dust settles and the lights dimmed for the final time, only one team stood. The red, white and blue of Team USA, the 2019 OWWC Champions.
After taking down the reigning champion and bronze medal finishers, South Korea, in the semi-finals, all that was left was Team China. In a 3-0 series that wasn’t even all that close, Team USA dispatched of Team China and claimed the gold medal for the first time in OWWC history.
