The United Kingdom and France finished second and first respectively at the Overwatch World Cup Paris Group Stage last weekend.
In doing so, they have each secured a place in the top 8 at BlizzCon this November, which takes place in Anaheim, California.
All six teams participating in the final group stage last weekend – the UK France, Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Poland – fought valiantly across three days of action in front of a passionate crowd.
With Italy unable to get the 4-0 against Germany, and our maths are correct. It’s now mathematically impossible for them to prevent either ourselves or France going to Blizzcon.
We’re going to Blizzcon, now to run the group.
