For the first time in Overwatch history, the United States has won the Overwatch World Cup. The US looked like they were going to have their work cut out for them when they squared up against three-time World Cup champs, South Korea. But in the words of Rosa Parks, “nah”. The red, white and blue took down South Korea and cruised on to the championship. In the chip, they played.. you guessed it, China. The US swooped in with the power of 15 bald eagles and the 2-2-2 meta and absolutely dominated the championship match 3-0. Alexa, play Born in the USA by Bruce Springsteen.
I’ll tell you this for free. There are not many esports better to watch than Overwatch. The meta is always changing, the game is always spicy, and the crowd is always so invested in it. I laid in bed watching this match last night and my heart was pumping out of my chest. If a video game match gets you so fired up that you want to play the game immediately, esports are doing their job.
Congrats Team USA – these colors don’t run
