ELC Gaming will add Overwatch to its repertoire of smaller esport tournaments with the latest addition to the Legend Series.

ELC’s new Overwatch tournament, hosted with Battlefy, will run an online group stage Wednesday and Thursday, with a total of 16 teams divided into four groups. Two teams from each group will make the playoffs.

The tournament also features an open qualifier for eight of its 16 spots, as eight teams will be invited directly to the tournament. The teams wishing to qualify can do so through the Battlefy website Saturday and Sunday.

The tournament has a $3,500 prize pool. The eight teams that were invited are ENCE eSports, eSuba, Wizards, For The Win Esports, Team Singularity, Helsinki REDS, Vivi’s Adventure, and CyberAthletes. Every invited team other than eSuba, For The Win Esports, and Helsinki REDS competed in the qualifiers for Overwatch Contenders Season Zero in Europe, with Team Singularity qualifying for the main event.

ELC has also hosted similar events for League of Legends and Counter Strike: Global Offensive. The LAN finals will take place on Big Betty, an esports and TV facility on a truck, and will be streamed on Twitch.
