Competitive Overwatch came to Australia in a big way this past weekend with the Overwatch World Cup Group Stage in Sydney. As part of the action Australia came out swinging with dominant victories against both Italy and Portugal, winning both match-ups 4-0. Ajay ‘Aetar’ Umasankar, Jason ‘ieatuup’ Ho, Marcus ‘Kiki’ Jacob, Ashley ‘Trill’ Powell, Jordan ‘Gunba’ Graham, and Andrew ‘Rqt’ Haws are on their way to the Overwatch World Cup Finals at BlizzCon 2017.

They join Sweden who became the highest ranked team participating at the Overwatch World Cup Group Stage, beating Australia in their match-up 3-1. The decider for Australia came down to its match-up against Japan, with the action going down to the wire and our team coming out on top 3-2.

Exciting stuff, and you can watch the nail-biting Australia v Japan below.

They also rounded out the win with "Aussie, Aussie, Aussie" chants.

Stay classy, 'Straya

I watched it on 7mate on sunday morning for the sake of watching esports on free to air lol. They cut the coverage off at the start of the last round which was a bit awkward.
