Are you a fan of Blizzard’s team-based online FPS-MOBA, Overwatch? Do you have aspirations of becoming the star player in your own esports team?
Leading the charge to grow competitive Overwatch in South Africa is Damage Control’s own Alastair Bearman who, with the assistance of Jared Lee from Team Viral, is here to help you started in the competitive local scene. Find out more below.
Jared Lee: “In an effort to grow the community, the Overwatch DGL community is going to be putting heaps of effort into bringing players into South Africa’s competitive Overwatch scene. We would like to bring together players who would like a shot a competing in the various leagues and tournaments but who may not have a team or know how to go about finding one.
So, if you would like a chance, join us in our community discord channel (https://discord.gg/gvGbvM3). We will attempt to place you in a team of people with similar goals and sort you out with a more experienced player to help your team start out by coaching your newly created team in the ways of competitive Overwatch. The community members will assist in all aspects of getting your team ready for competitive play, from how to create your team on the DGL website, to implementing tactics, working out roles in and out of the game, helping organisation and communication as well as getting the team involved in the various Overwatch communities to organise scrims against other teams.
We will also set you up for the ESL so that you can test yourselves against foreign competition and get a feel for how other countries handle the game. We basically want to help you get started with a team and give you the tools to progress without us. There is a very active Discord Server for DGL Overwatch and the Overwatch community as a whole. If you need any more information, feel free to ask in either of the discord servers. If you haven’t joined already, be sure to join the Overwatch South Africa Facebook group.
This is a brilliant opportunity to learn about the South African Overwatch scene, from starting a team to competing these guys will point you in the right direction.
