Overwatch League: end of season Playoffs, Sigma will be playable

Stage 4 of the Overwatch League started a short time ago. Blizzard introduced the role lock that radically changed teams' gameplay. At the same time, Overwatch revealed the hero 31 Sigma — Talon's new tank — which was released on the PTR with patch 1.39.

Sigma and patch 1.39

The new main tank will be available for the end of season Playoffs, as well as all the new modifications that appeared in patch 1.39. There are modifications on Brigitte and Symmetra as well as on many other heroes in order to adapt them to the 2-2-2.



Before reaching the long-awaited finals, teams will have to start by qualifying for the playoffs. 8 teams will be able to qualify for the playoffs, depending on their overall ranking. Here are all the methods to be part of the playoffs:

  • Be the first in your division in the general ranking
  • The next 4 teams in the ranking will qualify, regardless of the division
  • The top 7-12 will compete for a chance to win one of the last two places available

In view of the results of previous stages, we already know with confidence the fate of some teams:

  • Florida Mayhem and Washington Justice are already out
  • Vancouver Titans and New York Excelsior are guaranteed to be in the top 6
  • San Francisco Shock will be in the top 12 at least

Top 7-12

For these teams, a tournament will be organized to win a precious place. Matches will be played in BO7 with direct elimination. The team with the highest ranking chooses the first map, then the loser of each map will choose the next one.
