With Evo and The International looming near, August is going to be a big month for esports. But! July has been no slouch either, and its final weekend is appropriately crowded. From the Overwatch League Finals to several other majors, you should have plenty to keep you busy this weekend before Evo next week.
This is it. The Shanghai Dragons may not have made it to the Grand Finals, but The Philadelphia Fusion and London Spitfire have! This weekend will host the last major match of the Overwatch League, so make sure to tune in! (Stream / Schedule)
While you’re waiting for Evo to bring the house down next week, you can watch The Kumite In Texas /Low Tier City 6, which will feature just about every fighting game under the sun, including Super Smash Bros. Melee, Injustice 2, and Dragon Ball FighterZ. (Stream / Schedule)
You can also watch some Street Fighter V, Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2, and Tekken 7 at the Red Bull Conquest event in Denver, Colorado, which offers a pretty cool regional format. (Stream)
And while you’re waiting for Dota 2‘s International tournament, you can watch (mostly) North American teams face off one last time in The Summit 9, which may just be an appetizer, but still offers up a $100,000 prize pool. (Stream)
Call of Duty: World War II has begun the playoffs for the second stage of its CWL playoffs, so if you want to see the game at a high level before Black Ops 4 hits, this is your chance. (Stream / Schedule)
That’s it for this weekend! Let us know if we missed an event, or if there’s a scene you’d like us to cover, in the comments.
