Semi-amateur teams in both European and American Overwatch regions will compete within their own region in the Realm’s Hallows End Invitational.
This Saturday, the 29th of October, at 3pm CEST the event Realm’s Hallows End Invite Cup for the European region will kick off. This event is an invitational, which means 28 teams (ranked on our site) have been hand selected in order to create a competitive environment.

All teams will compete versus similar experienced Overwatch teams. Everything is being done to ensure the seeding is fair and fun. Teams will have to prepare well, but the main reason is to gain experience in the competitive scene and have fun of course!
