The MRO Overwatch: Open - Project Eversio vs EvH Match Recap

To provide additional coverage of The MRO Overwatch: Open, we will be releasing a recap of the most interesting matches we will be having! 

For the very first featured game, we will be looking at Project Eversio vs EvH. Although both rosters have undergone some changes since the last AOC MCS: Masters Overwatch Tournament, the match between the third and second place team respectively was one we were greatly looking forward to. Unfortunately, like most of the games that day, it turned out to be a rather one sided affair. 

Project Eversio had previously swept Entropy with a quick 2-0, and surprisingly enough they were able to repeat this versus EvH. On the first map, Dorado, EvH's offense proved to be unable to break through, especially the supports of Project Eversio. A plethora of heroes was used on the side of EvH (D.VA, Widowmaker and Reaper were all seen, in conjunction with the regular roster of Reinhardt, Soldier 76, Lucio and Ana) and they even employed some unconventional offensive plays. However, in the end all effort was halted by Cin on Ana and Serenity on Lucio, defending the payload extremely close near the second capture point for an extended time versus Z4mbu on Reaper and Soulkilla on D.VA. Lacking the time to cap the second point, EvH had to yield the first map to Project Eversio as they easily pushed the cart throughout Dorado in the second half, with some interesting Widow versus Widow sniper battles and a Pharmercy combo being used by Project Eversio.

The second map, Numbani, turned out to be a pretty straightforward 3-1 for Project Eversio, where their standard play proved to be stronger than what EvH was able to bring. A personal highlight here was the flanking play made by Yumadrebel, where he spent a good amount of time crouched into a corner, before surprising EvH and hitting a 4 man Earthshatter. 

Regardless, while the score seems somewhat lopsided, the actual games had EvH show some real promise. Although Project Eversio will be the team to beat with an extremely strong showing on the first day, they did not seem invincible. Tune in on February 28th at 20:00 CET to see the second day of The MRO Overwatch: Open!

The winner of the MVP vote will be greeted with a fantastic car, worth roughly $59,000. This is one of the most, if not the most, significant non-cash prizes to be awarded ever.  So, apart from the $1,000,000 prize pool, which is already quite an impressive amount; players will be trying their very best to not only win as a team, but to potentially benefit individually through a pricey set of wheels. Other sponsors for the event include Pringles, maybe the car comes with a can of cheesy goodness as a bonus?  Details on the event include the location of, you'll never guess, Hamburg. Barclaycard Arena will be filled to the brim as fans from around the world will watch the top 8 teams go head to head over three days of jam-packed action.

Votes cast by fans will go alongside those of the talent themselves, with 60 percent of control awarded to the latter. Regardless of the prize at stake, it should be a great event as usual, also a strong start to another season of tight competition and tournaments.
