Overwatch League 2019 just started last week with a blast, and now the 2019 Overwatch Contenders Pacific (OWCP) will also return on 28 February (GMT+8) with new contenders from Singapore, Thailand, and Japan.

Aside from the prize, the top team will have the honour to represent the Pacific region to go against the other top players in the Pacific Showdown, a live event that has the heads of Overwatch League scouts turning.
