What is Overwatch?
Overwatch is a team-based multiplayer first person shooter developed by Blizzard Entertainment in 2016. The game was first presented to the public at BlizzCon in 2014, but has been in closed beta for 2 years. The essence of the shooter game is the confrontation between two teams of 6 people each. The winner is the one that performs all the tasks on the map, for example, to escort a load or defend a position from enemy forces. One match can include 4-5 rounds. A special feature of Overwatch is the ability to change characters throughout the match, depending on the map and current tasks.
Overwatch has become an eSports discipline relatively recently. Just in 2018 the first official championship took place. Blizzard Corporation supports and develops Owerwatch League, which is especially popular in North America.
The Overwatch World Championship is called the Overwatch World Cup and also takes place with participation of game developers. In order to take part in the championship and compete for the world championship title, teams have to win in regional qualifiers firstly. The Overwatch World Championship takes place in the fall, late October or early November, and is timed to coincide with the annual BlizzCon.
The main teams and players in OverWatch
As typically happens in the most eSports disciplines, the strongest players are from Asia, mainly from South Korea. For example, in 2020 the T-Mobile Overwatch League 2020 vote for the best player includes South Korean players and one Chinese player, Yiliang "Eileen" Ou, playing for Team Charge. In 2019 and 2018, Jay "Sinatra" Won of the San Francisco Shock team and Seong-Hyun "Jjonak" Bang of the NYXL team were recognized as the most valuable players. Sadly, in 2020, Sinatra made the decision to leave Overwatch for a new shooter from Riot Games.
The London Spitfire (2018) and San Francisco Shock (2019) have won the last two world championships. Among the favorites for the 2020 regular season are Shanghai Dragons and New York Excelsior, and last year's winners San Francisco Shock.

Basic betting strategies
The betting strategy is quite simple. The first and main thing that is required of you is to be well versed in the game and follow the pro-scene. You need to understand in which teams the best players in the world play, who showed excellent results at regional tournaments, and who, on the contrary, weakened their positions - all this information is necessary in order to make a successful forecast and good bet.
It is also important to remember that the game is constantly changing and updated. As a result, new patches can weaken some characters and strengthen others, so not all pro-players have time to adapt to the new meta, and this can affect the final outcome of the match.
In addition, the game features different cards and tasks on which some players can feel more confident than others. This must also be taken into account when making a bet. Overwatch is a very dynamic game. The balance of power in a match can turn over in the blink of an eye, so if you make a Live bet, it is better not to risk large sums.
