The final match of the day saw Dallas Fuel Vs. Seoul Dynasty. Similar to the other American sports, the top team in each division at the end of the season will get a bye in the first week of the playoffs. The first match will air tomorrow as part of the regular season over on Twitch.

In the first transcontinental match, the third Cali team, LA Gladiators, went up against the all-Chinese Shanghai Dragons.

It's East vs West in the battle of the best Overwatch players as Day 1 comes to a close.

Following his post on the Overwatch forums, Kaplan was then pushed by other fans to explain exactly what kind of "stuff" could cause Blizzard World to not be available in January.

The full schedule can be found at the very informative Overwatch League website and provides details, matchups and times for all six weeks of the season.

"Overwatch League has peaked over 415k viewers". That makes it easy for gamers, who can consume all of their Overwatch action via one source, but also means Twitch will net all of that advertising revenue from viewers tuning in.

All games of the inaugural season will take place at Blizzard Arena Los Angeles, a live-event venue in Burbank, California that has been custom-renovated for Blizzard Entertainment eSports events.

Each new skin you acquire will cost 100 League tokens and more tokens can be bought within the game.

As many young consumers, particularly young males, watch less traditional television, platforms like Twitch believe they are positioned to pick up some of that slack.

Blizzard has presented the Overwatch League to the game's player base as a monumentally big deal.

Kevin Lin, COO of Twitch, said: "The Overwatch League is making a major impact on e-sports by reshaping the industry with city-based teams". "That's why this historic and ground-breaking partnership is perfectly suited for Activision Blizzard, for Twitch, and-most importantly-for our growing global fanbase". Blizzard is attempting to launch the world of Esports into the public view with their massively popular game and this might just be the game to show the world.
