The Overwatch League Grand Finals are shaping up to be a full-blown extravaganza.
DJ Khaled will perform during the Overwatch League Grand Finals taking place this weekend at the Barclays Center in New York. Regrettably, the gig only calls for a musical performance by Khaled; he won't be assigned a round robin opponent in the opening draw. The concert-showing will take place before matchplay on Saturday, as a precursor to the final leg.
DJ Mick and DJ Envy are scheduled to spin throughout the two day event. David Garibaldi, a "speed painter" has been given carte blanche to create a an Overwatch-inspired painting as the field narrows. The artwork will be raffled off to a lucky spectator.
The Grand Finals are essentially molded for team play, which equates to team members collecting points across a leaderboard, the final tally deciding the winning party. Philadelphia Fusion and the London Spitfire have qualified for the Final and will square off for the inaugural Overwatch League trophy. Team captains will have envious task of deciding how to split the $1.4 million prize pool, with some players building a case for a greater payout based on year-end performances.
