Here are this year’s Overwatch World Cup teams

Overwatch World Cup 2018

24 teams have qualified for this November’s Overwatch World Cup. Over the last month (https://www.pcgamesn.com/overwatch/overwatch-world-cup-2018) Blizzard have been “tracking the average skill rating of each country’s top 150 players”, and from that information 20 countries qualified for the tournament – along with the four host countries of South Korea, the United States, Thailand, and France.
