Our Thoughts:

Overwatch is a great spectator game… if one can keep up with its speed. We will be waiting with interest to see the qualifiers and the final for this event and hope for some truly spectacular moves. Meanwhile, perhaps a short work break for some casual matches is in order for us to be able to better follow on the live action.
