Final month, Blizzard introduced that each one of its scheduled Overwatch League video games in China throughout February and March had been canceled within the wake of the coronavirus. Now the writer has revealed its plan to reschedule the video games — and it includes transferring them in another country altogether.
In response to Blizzard, all the canceled matches — which had been set to happen in Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Hangzhou — will now happen in a studio in Seoul. The matches might be performed through the sixth and seventh weeks of OWL, which occur on the weekends of March 14th and March 21st. Beforehand scheduled video games in Miami and Atlanta that had been set to happen these weekends might be unaffected, in keeping with Blizzard. Particular match occasions are anticipated to be introduced “quickly.”
(Seoul may even be dwelling to OWL video games on the weekend of March seventh, when the Seoul Dynasty host matches on the Dongdaemun Design Plaza.)
The Overwatch League is much from the one esports league impacted by the fallout of the coronavirus. The League of Legends Professional League in China has postponed matches indefinitely, whereas League of Legends Champions Korea is at present enjoying video games with out spectators current for security causes. Equally, a PUBG match in Berlin scheduled for April has been postponed with no make-up date introduced.
OWL kicked off its third season on February eighth with video games in New York and Dallas. This season is especially essential for the league because it represents a transfer towards a city-based construction, with matches hosted by groups all over the world. Week two begins on February 15th with matches hosted by the Philadelphia Fusion.
