Upcoming Overwatch Contenders Finals set for Melbourne Esports Open

TEG and ESL have added the Overwatch Contenders Season 2 Finals to the growing roster of esports events due to take place at the upcoming inaugural Melbourne Esports Open.

The Overwatch Contenders Australia Season 2 Finals will be held on Saturday, 1 September, and will see 12 of the highest-performing teams across Australia and New Zealand battle for their share of a $67,000AUD prize pool.

The top four teams from the regular season will advance to the Melbourne Esports Open for the Season 2 Playoffs live on stage.

TEG CEO Geoff Jones welcomed the addition of the Overwatch Contenders Australia Season 2 Finals to the upcoming event.

The move comes just a day after TEG and ESL announced a partnership that will bring Riot's League of Legends Oceanic Pro League finals to Melbourne Esports Open.

“From the outset TEG had a vision of esports as major event live entertainment in world-class arenas with big crowds just as passionate and engaged as a major footy final,” said Jones.

“I am sure that the Melbourne Esports Open will live up to this billing in its debut year. Not only do we have an array of top pro teams and the most popular titles, but we have a magnificent precinct at Melbourne Park.

“The many esports activities for fans and the chance for anyone with the skills to compete and showcase their style in multiple esports titles in Margaret Court Arena cap off a fabulous esports entertainment schedule.”

Tickets go on sale tomorrow Thursday 21 June at 2pm from ticketek.com.au. Prices start at $19.90 for juniors and $29.90 for adults. Family day passes start from $79.70.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
