The Overwatch Team is constantly in change ever since it was first started by Dr. Havok and Mister36 back in late 2016/early 2017.
The team first assembled for the 2nd UGC (Ultimate Gaming Championship) Overwatch season, with one competing team leaded by either both Dr. Havok, Mister36 and recently Superglue. “No Monkey Business” was one of the two EdgeGamers’ Team name, according to Mister36.
The main focus of the Team is the UGC League. It’s a popular league community that has been running in Team Fortress 2 mainly for a long time and it is well-managed, and a good way for amateur teams to get some play in.
When the Overwatch Team started on the 2nd season of the UGC League (started September 2016), which runs for a couple of months (6 regular season weekly games then playoffs). EdgeGamers has been competing there ever since. This latest season, the 4th, eGO’s boys and girls reached the playoffs for the first time by just squeezing in; with two very good matches in the playoffs but unfortunately could not get the win in either of them. You can see those matches here and here.
As No Monkey Business was actually the 2nd of two teams that eGO was planning on running this season, the competitive team feels very proud of what they accomplished.
After the 3rd season, EdgeGamers started participating in an multi-community tournament and placed 2nd out of 8 Communities.
Regarding restrictions and rules, other than the basic 1 of each hero, and if a hero was added to the game mid-season then they wouldn’t be allowed.
Overwatch is a constantly changing game. Right now the concept is what’s described as “Dive”: a fast and aggressive play style dependent on mobile heroes, and it is mostly centred around the tanks D.Va and Winston, who are the most mobile tanks, and they offer a ton of defensive capabilities.
Let’s give Dr. Havok, Mister36, Superglue, Canii, Dubina, ShadowMage, Minho, Beefhammer and Ithuriel our support when representing our community out there.
