The Overwatch Esports tournament "Calling All Heroes: Challengers Cup" was created specifically for women and members of the LGBTQIA+ community to give underrepresented genders an entry point into Overwatch Esports. After two nerve-racking qualifier rounds, the finalists for Calling All Heroes: Challengers Cup have finally been determined.

Calling All Heroes: Challengers Cup Finalists

The "Calling All Heroes"-event is an extremely important milestone for the Overwatch league. Although half of all gamers are women, they are still extremely underrepresented in Esports. In most cases, this is because gaming is less accessible to women. They often experience a lot of sexism from other players or receive disparaging treatment because "gaming is a man's thing". Of course, this is not true, but the outdated mindset of some people makes it harder for women to be taken seriously in Esports.

The format consists of two qualifying rounds, from which four winners each qualify for the final round, where eight teams will ultimately fight for victory.

Now, that the two qualifier rounds have taken place, and determined eight winners, here are the finalists:

Qualifier 1

  1. Altiora Artemis
  2. Altiora Polaris
  3. 1:30 timezone
  4. Shikigami

Qualifier 2

  1. Dart Monkeys
  2. Timeless Ethereal
  3. Altiora Nimbus
  4. Ban on Choccy Milk

In the past weeks and months, these eight teams have fought their way to the top. Soon they will be able to crown the final winner when the grand finale takes place on December 11, 17, and 18. All finalists will share a total prize pool of $25,000, with the 1st place taking home $10,000.

We're really looking forward to the final competition next month and wish all participants the best of luck.
