Players of all skill levels want to engage in organized team play - the way the game was meant to be played. Most competitive Overwatch leagues accept all challengers, which results in great semi-pro level play, but makes them inaccessible to newcomers to organized Overwatch. OWUL was founded to bring this experience to the entire community, Bronze through Grandmaster. We bring together captains, coaches, casters and competitors to foster every aspect of competitive Overwatch in our community, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to practice and improve at their own skill level.
OWUL currently supports PC players in the Americas and Europe regions. The only prerequisite for participation is completing all ten placement matches in Competitive mode to receive an SR. We play in seasons of varying length. Full teams of 6-8 can sign up during each preseason. Free agents and partial teams can recruit and form teams using our community resources.
Teams are divided into divisions based on average SR--teams compete against their peers in a season-long round robin of challenging matches. At the end of each season, the top two teams in each division are invited to the post-season playoff tournament, against teams from across the league.
Our community focus on improvement and education extends beyond simply getting better at the game. Coaches and casters are welcome to get their start in our league. With over 200 teams in our first season, that’s 100+ matches a week in need of a caster, and over a thousand players looking for coaching experience. We have resources and experienced coaches/casters in our community who welcome newcomers to the field.
In addition to regular league matches, the OWUL also hosts a variety of mixers and events open to the public. These include:
Catch the action on our official Twitch Channel, watch past games or podcasts on YouTube, or submit the best league moments to be featured on our Twitter & Facebook pages.
