A Viewer's Guide to the Overkill.gg Finals
After three matchdays on each server and a long break, we are finally crowning the King of the Beta. Which team can claim to be the Champion prior to the official release of the game and which region will be the dominant one?
We start the night with the third place decider between the new EnVyUs lineup and Luminosity. Both teams finished the group stage with a score of 4-2 and will be eager to end the Beta with a win. Who will prevail? Seagull's men or INTERNETHULK's unit?
Luminosity: Enigma, Seagull, milo, piero, Esper, godz
EnVyUs: INTERNETHULK, chipshajen, harryhook, Taimou, cocco, TviQ
Time: Sunday, 8th May 2016 - 18:00 CEST

Prediction: ”Ever since bringing on godz Luminosity has been on an upswing. They manifested themselves as the second best team in North America. The question that needs answering though is whether being second best in North America is truly good enough to beat the most dominant team in the beta-- a team that had a 51-0 record at one point. Frankly, I just don't see it happening. Not in a Best of 7 with mixed servers. 4-1 to EnVyUs.”
After the third place decider we bring you the main event of the night: The final between the two teams unbeaten in their continental division, playing for the glory, crown and prize money in a grueling Best of 9 series. REUNITED against Cloud9.
REUNITED: Morte, TwoEasy, Vallutaja, uNFixed, Winghaven, Kruise
Cloud9: Adam, deBett, Surefour, Greggo, Reaver, KyKy
Time: Sunday, 8th May 2016 - 22:00 CEST
Stream: ZP & Hexagrams
Prediction: ”This is the match we have been waiting for and it should be a very exciting one. Cloud9 has done fantastic in recent weeks, but they did so purely in tournaments that were played exclusively on the North American server. Can they keep of the level of dominance they showed in a mixed server enviroment? For REUNITED this tournament is the one they have to win. While the team is doing great resultswise, they are still lacking that big tournament win to elevate them into the ranks of the truly dominant teams in the short history of Overwatch. The difference between a win and a loss might be TwoEasy for them: I've said it time and time again; if TwoEasy is at his a-game it becomes near impossible to beat REUNITED, but those matches are few and far between. Can TwoEasy finally overcome his consistency issues and help carry his team to the victory? And has REUNITED found an answer to the double monkey meta that made Cloud9 famous?
I do believe we will see at least 8 maps played out. This will be a true nailbiter. But I do believe in REUNITED, I think this is their time to shine. 5-4 REUNITED.”
