Overwatch's first major international tournament was held over the weekend in Cologne, Germany. Hosted at Gamescom, Europe's largest games trade show, the ESL Overwatch Atlanta Showdown saw competition from eight pro teams. With a prize pool of $US100,000 ($131,145) in the balance, professional players busted out their best Tracers and most bad arse Genjis and fought for glory. The finals came after a slew of qualifying matches that featured over 200 teams from North America and Europe. The final line was split down the middle with four European teams and four North American. Rogue, Creation eSports, Misfits and ReUnited all coasted through the European qualifying brackets while EnVyUs, Cloud9, Fnatic and compLexity Gaming represented North America. Absent was NRG eSports, whose roster features the popular Overwatch streamer Brandon "Seagull" Larned.

EnVyUs was heavily favoured heading into the tournament, having a solid foothold in North America. However, the tournament turned out to be an absolute showcase for the European teams. ReUnited gained earlier momentum with a powerful showing against compLexity Gaming while Cloud9 fell to Rogue. They were later knocked out of the tournament by compLexity Gaming in an elimination round. In the end, it came down to Rogue and ReUnited in a stunning final match.
