Overwatch League Season 2 Stage 2 Contest

And here we go

I told you it’d be back :wink: I know a lot of folks had a blast last Season trying to figure out who would win each match-up (or clicking randomly cough@Bradumcough), and we still love giving stuff away, so why not, right? Veterans of last year will already know the prize, but for those joining in for the first time, we’ve got a :moneybag: $20 Blizzard gift card :moneybag: for the winner at the end of Stage 2!

I am hype!

We know you are. The format is very similar to last Season, but we made a couple of tweaks; new and former competitors alike should review how this is going to work:

  • Everyone who is at least a Basic user is eligible to participate.
  • Every week on Sunday night we’ll post all the polls for the week in this thread (links will be below in the OP). Pick the team you think will win; users will be awarded 1 point for each correct pick.
  • Each poll will close in the afternoon the day its respective matches take place.
    • i.e., Wednesday the Wednesday match polls close, Thursday the Thursday match polls close, etc.
  • The top 4 Strategists at the end of Stage 3 will then compete for the final prize by picking the outcomes of the Stage 3 playoff matches

As with last season, anyone above the rank of Leader is ineligible to win; Flex your brain, cast your votes, and may the best Strategist win!

I’m just gonna pick whatever @lyteforce picks because I know now that he has a home team, that he’s been following the league more closely.

Not a bad strategy; might have to amend future contests to prevent peeping other folks’ choices :wink:

@bonus, @NVS_1, @dontcallmejames, @Droul, @Diacuss, @DasRenegade, @Freshie44, @skidoLLaZ, @infinknight, @DrAculaMD, @senNish: attend!

If you’ve been pinged in this comment it’s because you played last Season and haven’t voted yet on this new contest; I wanted to make sure you got a chance to play again this Season if you missed the thread going up Sunday :wink:

Don’t make me Bumper Slam you. I generally like ducks and would feel bad about it.

Also makes my Vancouver Titans podcast more credible when I know a bit about the competition. :wink:

This week’s polls are up (only 1 day late; school/work shenanigans); I’ll edit this post and add in the usual scoreline/standings posted tomorrow when I get home from work.
