Overwatch NSE Winter is split into 2 main stages: Stage 1 Qualification (Weeks 1-3) and Stage 2 Swiss/Playoffs (Weeks 4-7)
In Stage 1 teams will initially be seeded into 3 skill groups. In the first round teams will play another team in the same skill group and in the following rounds be matched versus teams with a similar record in the tournament.
In Stage 2 the top 16 teams will start in the Championship bracket (a double elimination bracket) and everyone else will continue playing in a Swiss tournament, starting with points based on finish in stage 1. Teams who do well in the Swiss can qualify for the Challenger bracket (Division 2) or Division 3.
1st - 6x £100 GAME Credit
2nd - 6x £60 GAME Credit
