The 2018 Overwatch World Cup Continues on September 7-9 with the Los Angeles Qualifier.
The second of four group stages for this year’s World Cup, the Los Angeles Qualifier will see six national teams fighting for just two spots in the playoffs at Blizzcon, November 2-3.
The first qualifier took place in Incheon, South Korea, where the host nation and reigning World Champions claimed their place, alongside Finland.
The LA Qualifier, which will be held in the Overwatch League arena, might be the most anticipated of the four, as it will feature the first official clash of this year’s World Cup between the United States and Canada.
To spice up the national rivalry even further, the LA Gladiators, LA Valiant, and Houston Outlaws each have players on both sides, while the Dallas Fuel are providing the head coaches for each. Fuel head coach Aaron ‘Aero’ Atkins is leading the USA, while assistant coach Justin ‘Jayne’ Conroy directs team Canada.
Here’s everything you need to know to catch all of the action at the Los Angeles Qualifier.
Overwatch has finally revealed the official drop rates for loot box items such as skins and sprays within the in-game client.
Players logging in can now check out the exact rates for standard loot box items in a special page in the home screen menu. The page provides a lot of details for those trying to complete their cosmetic collections.
Some of the information is already pretty standard, with each loot box containing either four items or three items with credits. However, each loot box includes at least one item of rare or higher quality.
The description goes on to further state that, on average, an epic quality item will be found in one out of every 5.5 loot boxes and legendary items found in every 13.5.
Legendary Overwatch skins are the rarest.
Furthermore, they list common items as having a 99% drop rate, rare at 94%, epic with 18.5% and legendary a mere 7.5%.
