What To Watch This Weekend: PUBG, Overwatch, And Dragon Ball FighterZ
After a short hiatus, we're back! This week, it's a cavalcade of shootin', fightin', and cuttin' the Gs off words to make room for apostrophes.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive visits the fine city of Stockholm this weekend for its Dreamhack Masters event, which is also part of the Intel Grand Slam, which offers a $1,000,000 prize to the first team to win four of the circuit's events. (Stream / Schedule)
The League of Legends North American league is still at it, and this week, it's the semifinals of the season! Watch Cloud9 go up against Team SoloMid, then watch Team Liquid take on 100 Thieves. To see who advances to the finals. (Stream / Schedule)
If you got into some fighting games (as you should!) after watching Evo, you can catch two major events this week. First, Summer Jam brings some of America's best players together for the first time since the landmark major to see how they've evolved in Street Fighter V and Tekken 7, and adapted to changes in Dragon Ball FighterZ.

You can also catch Super Smash Bros. For Wii U, Fortnite, and Overwatch at San Juan's First Attack tournament, which features some stiff competition. (Stream)
The PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds StarSeries I-League tournament has a $100,000 prize, so if you wanted to see PUBG played by someone other than your friend who insists sitting in a bathtub for 20 minutes is "fun," here's your chance! (Stream / Schedule)
For the more card-oriented fan, Hearthstone is having a quick competitive tour, and this week, Europe's best are up to bat. Season 2 of Europe's HCT tour offers the chance to head to the Fall Championship. (Stream / Schedule)
