This week saw Overwatch Contenders Season 1 kicking with Finland’s Team Gigantti starting week 1 with a game against the much favoured eUnited side.
EUnited are considered one of, if not the best Overwatch team in Europe with their players having played at the top level of the game of almost the entire title since it’s release and were much favoured going into this match against the Finn’s.
The recent ASUS ROG champions, Team Gigantti knew that it would take something special to defeat their counterparts and that is exactly what they produced. Gigantti showed great discipline throughout the match up with pin point dive timings and ultimate use coordination being something they appear to have worked on.
Taking the match 3-1 was not something that anyone expected to see from the Finn’s but after the confidence gained from winnings Finland’s biggest ever Overwatch tournament just a couple of weeks before, they are in a good position for this Contenders season.
Week 2 see’s Team Gigantti take on another heavyweight within the group, US based organisation, Misfits’ European Line-up. Gigantti will once again go into this match as underdogs but will hope to shock the world with another flawless performance.
Where to watch:
