The third season of Overwatch APEX, probably the only prestigious Overwatch event still going on despite the community awaiting news about Overwatch Legue, has concluded its Group Phase 1. Out of the 16 teams which began the season, only eight are left standing.
In Group A, we have afreeca Freecs Blue, X6-Gaming, Team EnVyUs and Meta Athena, while LW Blue, Lunatic-Hai, Team KongDoo Panthera and CONBOX Spirit are playing in Group B. Noticeably missing are Westerners Rogue and OW APEX S2 Runners Up RunAway.
Some matches in Group A have been played already. In Group A, Team EnVyUs lost 2-3 to X6-Gaming and afreeca Freecs won against Meta Athena. In Group B, LW Blue won against CONBOX Spirit, while Lunatic-Hai surprisingly got blown out of the water against Team KongDoo Panthera.
