Here are the Overwatch League Summer Showdown teams

Published

on

Very few things are guaranteed during any Overwatch League season. But in 2021, it seems like the Shanghai Dragons and Dallas Fuel making tournament brackets is more reliable than death or taxes. 

The league’s third tournament cycle, the Summer Showdown, will include the two top teams in the finals bracket as they try to claim a second win. Both squads have one tournament championship under their belts thus far. 

Despite the obvious focus on the Shanghai and Dallas rivalry, they aren’t the only ones who will be vying for $100,000 and three coveted “league points” that factor into postseason placements. When the finals bracket begins on July 15, the Chengdu Hunters and Atlanta Reign will be looking to disrupt the status quo. 

East Region

To absolutely no one’s surprise, the Shanghai Dragons will be back for the Overwatch League’s third tournament cycle this year. As the most dominant force in the East Region, few teams have been able to stand up to the top-tier roster—and the Summer Showdown knockouts were no different. With a quick 3-0 against the New York Excelsior, the Dragons are looking toward a repeat performance of their epic June Joust win

Every tournament cycle seems to include an East Region surprise. This time around, it’s the ever-confusing Chengdu Hunters, who took down the Seoul Dynasty in a 3-2 knockout game. Seoul were the favored team going into the match but fell prey to their personal brand of inconsistency. Hunters standouts, especially aerial ace Yi “Jinmu” Hu, punched the team’s ticket to the Summer Showdown bracket. 

West Region 

Much like the Shanghai Dragons, the Dallas Fuel are one of the least surprising Summer Showdown participants, considering they took home a win in May and came in second in June. Unlike the Dragons, however, the Fuel’s opponents made them work for that coveted ticket to Hawaii. 

The Washington Justice brought Dallas a nail-biter series where wins were traded back and forth based on map-specific composition choices. Though the five-map series was a treat for fans, it was a tragic loss for the Justice. As far as Summer Showdown implications, the series showed the Dallas Fuel roster is mortal and that Shanghai will likely be smelling blood in the water. 

On the other side of the West Region’s bracket, the Atlanta Reign will be taking another trip to Hawaii after barely defeating a tough opponent. Much like the throwdown between the Justice and Fuel, the Reign had to battle back against a formidable Los Angeles Gladiators squad. The entire series came down to a third round of final map Nepal, where Atlanta took advantage of minor mistakes by the Gladiators and came out ahead. 

The Summer Showdown finals bracket begins on July 15, with the Dallas Fuel taking on the Chengdu Hunters at 8pm CT. Immediately after, the Shanghai Dragons will face off against the Atlanta Reign.

All ranked mode rewards for Pokémon UNITE: Season 1

Published

on

Pokémon UNITE features different types of rewards for every game mode available in the game, with most being awarded right after a match ends. However, for ranked mode, most of the best rewards won’t actually be available until the end of an ongoing season. 

Players who enter ranked mode in a MOBA title are typically more confident in their abilities and are looking to play in games with players who are also looking to improve and test themselves against others. 

UNITE uses a seasonal approach to its ranked mode, meaning players will have a set amount of time to climb through the six individual ranks, trying to reach Master Rank by the end of that season.

The ranked mode rewards will be split into two distinct parts, one overarching reward that players can work towards and is mostly about improving while playing games, while the other is based on your highest rank achieved during that season. And this doesn’t take into account the various missions that require playing ranked mode to claim bonuses too. 

So if you plan on competing in ranked mode for and period of time, and potentially plan on trying to climb the ranks, here are all of the ranked rewards for Unite’s first ranked season.

Are there ranked rewards in Pokémon UNITE?

Published

on

Pokémon UNITE has multiple game modes for players to pick from in order to control what type of experience they will have with the MOBA. For most players, this will end up with getting a squad together and jumping into ranked matchmaking once they learn the basics of the game. 

Ranked is where players can go to challenge themselves against players trying to improve themselves, and typically features more coordinated strategy, higher-level gameplay, and closer matches overall. 

Because this mode is considered to be the more competitive battleground for players, UNITE has six distinct ranks that players can reach, with five of them also having multiple classes within the rank to differentiate skill levels during the climb. Starting with Beginner: Class 1, players will work to grind Performance Points, which will help them reach the next rank and match up with even better players.

Like with most games, UNITE does have rewards that will be given out to players who participate and grind ranks in ranked mode, with those rewards being given out at the end of every ranked season. You can check the current season’s rewards by hitting the X Button when sitting in the ranked lobby and then selecting “Season Rewards.”

Starting with ranked season one, it appears that every player will get some special rewards just for participating in at least 20 ranked matches. After that, there will be scaling rewards based on a player’s highest rank achieved during a season.

You can expect all of the rewards to change when a new season begins, with TiMi Studio and The Pokémon Company sharing more details in the game when that happens.
