Overwatch Pro Settings, Gear List, Top Players and Teams
Overwatch is a multiplayer first-person shooter game released in 2016.
The game Overwatch divides players into two teams of six, with each team choosing a character from a list of various “heroes” that are available. Each hero has a distinct playing style, and their duties are broken down into four main categories: Offense, Defense, Tank, and Support.
Overwatch is primarily an online multiplayer game, but it also features a single-player mode against computer-controlled opponents called “Practice Range.”
The game features several modes, which include Quick Play (players can use their hero), Competitive Play (players must choose heroes that fit the team’s composition), and Arcade Mode (a more casual experience).
Players gain experience points in these modes, which allows them to level up and acquire new cosmetic items such as skins or voice lines.

Overwatch Game Modes
Let’s look at 7 game modes available in Overwatch. Check it out!
|Assault||The game mode “Assault” features two teams capturing points while trying to stop the other team from taking them. When one of the points is finally captured, time will increase on the clock, and both teams can start spawning closer.|
|Control||Control is an elimination-based game mode. There are three rounds; the first team to win two rounds wins the game.|
Whichever team reaches 100% first also wins that round. When one team reaches 99%, overtime will start while the game point is still being debated.
|Escort||In the game mode “Escort,” the assaulting team must escort a payload to its objective, and the opposing team must prevent them from getting there.|
Each map has 2-3 checkpoints between the starting spot and the finish line. When you reach a checkpoint, your timer will be extended, and both teams will be moved back to the spawning points.
|Hybrid||This game mode starts with an Assault Capture Point and then proceeds with the Escort objective.|
|Capture the Flag||Capture the flag is a game mode where one flag is in your base, and the other team is in their base.|
The objective is to take their flag or defend your own. When the playtime is up, the team with the most points or who reaches three first wins the match.
|Deathmatch||The Deathmatch game mode is a competitive mode in which players try to eliminate the other players in 10 minutes, and the player who reaches 20 points first wins.|
|Elimination||Elimination mode is played in a first-to-three format with one life per player against another group of the same size in 1v1 or 3v3, or 6v6 teams. |
The team that destroys all opposing team members will then win that round. Heroes played during a winning match cannot be used again.
|Busan||Busan is the only Korean map in the game and is based in the city’s urban heart. The map has three playable areas: Downtown, Sanctuary, and M.E.K.A. Base.|
|Ilios||Ilios is a beautiful map, with the players having the enjoyable experience of duking it out at the cliffside towns and ancient ruins of Greece. The map has three additional sub-maps for players to enjoy: Lighthouse, Well, and Ruins.|
|Nepal||The map takes players to the temple where Zenyatta and Genji studied their craft. The sub-maps include Village, Shrine, and Sanctum.|
|Oasis||It is a glittering metropolis in the heart of the desert and does an excellent job of giving an authentic futuristic vibe. The sub-maps include City Center, Gardens, and University.|
|Hanamura||This map is home to Hanzo and Genji has beautiful cherry blossoms adorning the courtyard.|
|Temple of Anubis||This map does justice to the Egyptian ruins and perfectly blends them with the game’s futuristic looks.|

|Dorado||The map is a fishing village filled with vendor stalls and pinatas.|
|Havana||Based on the capital of Cuba, the map has a tropical feel.|
|Junkertown||Junkertown is undoubtedly one of the unique maps of Overwatch. The map imagines a post-apocalyptic wasteland with enough room for players to scrap for the win.|

Overwatch was not designed to have a massive presence in the esports section. The game’s publisher had shown no interest in marketing the game as an esports phenomenon; in fact, the primary focus of the developers was to ‘build a great competitive game’ for the users.
After the game’s release, the developer added some new features focused on establishing Overwatch as the next big esports title.
The impact was instantaneous, with the online community getting behind it.
The first tournament was organized in 2016, just a few months after the game’s launch. The first international tournament (organized by E.S.L.) was held in the same year.
Even the developer and publisher of the game got into the action and organized an Overwatch World Cup, which has had four editions till now.
Several regional tournaments for Overwatch are still organized, including an Overwatch League, with the first season having a prize pool of $3.5 million.
