What To Watch This Weekend: Overwatch League Playoffs, Rainbow Six Siege, And Brawlhalla

This week sees the return of the Overwatch League, but that's not all that's going on this weekend. Lots of shooters are coming out for their day in the sun, and who are we to deny it to them?

Oh hey, the Overwatch League returns! With all of the seasonal stages out of the way, we can finally get into the real deal: elimination matches. Will the Shanghai Dragons make it past the first round? They theoretically could, damnit! (Stream / Schedule)

League of Legends' North American circuit heads into its fourth week, but that doesn't mean there won't be some exciting matches today! (Stream / Schedule)

The Heroes of the Storm HGC continues unabated in its third week, so in case you need more of Blizzard's heroes, make sure to check it out. (Stream / Schedule)

Meanwhile the Hearthstone pro circuit is in Oakland, California this weekend for its next major! (Stream / Schedule)

Rounding out the Blizzard-related festivities is the StarCraft II WCS in Valencia, Spain for Dreamhack which should be a fun change of pace from all the MOBA and shooter action we've been seeing recently. (Stream and Schedule)

Not one to be left out, Rainbow Six Siege is also part of Dreamhack this year, and offers something very different from the average shooter in terms of watchability and tactics. (Stream / Schedule)

Brawlhalla is also joining the action at Dreamhack, so if you'd like to see one of the biggest non-Nintendo platform fighters in action, check it out! (Stream / Schedule)

We also have a join Gears of War 4/Halo 5: Guardians event going on this weekend in New Orleans, and you if you weren't able to make the trip out to see both events, you can always sit back and watch it on the Big Easy, which is what I assume you call your couch. (Halo 5 Stream / Gears 4 Stream / Schedule)

That's it for this weekend! Let us know if we missed an event, or if there's a scene you'd like us to cover, in the comments below.
