Overwatch League Season Two doesn’t get started until early 2019, but we already have an idea of what the first week of matches will look like.

Watchpoint is an Overwatch talk show that happened weekly during the season on the official Overwatch League Twitch channel.

In addition to eight new teams, there are also a number of schedule changes to make matches easier for fans outside of North America to watch and changes to the Stage and Season Playoffs.

The first match of the 2019 season will be a rematch of last year’s Grand Final between the Philadelphia Fusion and the London Spitfire on February 14 at 4 PM PT.

Even though it’s the same teams from the Grand Finals, each roster has seen some pretty significant changes during the offseason.

The first day of Season Two will also see Boston take on New York, Seoul battle the Gladiators, and the first outing for the new Hangzhou Spark against Shanghai, which means an Overwatch League team from China will finally have a win, no matter what.

Day Two of Week One will include matches from several new expansion teams, including the Toronto Defiant facing off against the Houston Outlaws, and the Guangzhou Charge taking on fellow newcomers the Chengdu Hunters.

The Overwatch League

Day Three, Saturday, has the first match for the L.A. Valiant, who face off against Hangzhou. Paris will debut against the Spitfire and Vancouver will take on Shanghai on February 16 as well.

The Overwatch League

Week One ends with matches between the Outlaws and the Uprising, the Fusion and the Reign, and features a California showdown between the Gladiators and the Shock. Finally, the Seoul Dynasty take on the Dallas Fuel in the last match of the week.

The Overwatch League

Overwatch League Season 2 is set to start on February 14, 2019, and all matches will be streamed on Twitch.

Even though the first contest of 2019 will be a rematch of the Overwatch League Grand Finals, we probably won’t see DJ Kaled make an appeaerance.

During the spookiest time of the year, Overwatch’s fans have discovered a cute, quaint easter egg in the game’s Chateau Guillard map, which has enjoyed a Halloween makeover.

Overwatch’s developers over at Blizzard do not take October’s biggest holiday for granted, as they celebrate the costume and candy festivities each year with reworked maps and new cosmetics.

This year, players have taken to exploring the Halloween version of Chateau Guillard, and are appreciating the various adjustments.

Now set under moonlight, the extensive French chateau most popularly known for deathmatch custom games is also becoming known for spooky Halloween details. Having released in 2018’s event, players are still making discoveries in the version of Chateau Guillard at night.

Normally, people get distracted by the fog and darkness, or maybe the jack-o’-lanterns and subterranean coffin.

But, taking a trip to the red study room, Redditor ‘YHJ_JYG_Kryptlock’ has discovered a neat little Overwatch easter egg involving candle wicks.

The new Halloween easter egg appears in Chateau Guillard’s red study room.

As they demonstrate in the clip below, if you shoot each wick of the candelabra, the candles will briefly light. It’s nothing crazy, but that doesn’t stop it from being a neat addition to an already detailed revamped map.

To find this easter egg, you’ll first need to find the red study room.

If you’re facing inward to the chateau from the outdoor area with a jump pad and statue, this room will be toward the back right as you enter. If you’re on the opposite end, at the balcony’s health pack, this will be to your left as you enter the chateau.

How to find Chateau Guillard’s Halloween easter egg

  1. Head to the red study room
  2. Locate the standing candelabra, in the back right of the room at the corner near the bookshelf
  3. Shoot the candle wicks
  4. Enjoy the lit candles
  5. Make a wish?

If you shoot the candles wicks in Château Guillard (Halloween) you will light them on fire. from Overwatch

Ultimately, it’s a very simple easter egg, but a cute one. In a map covered in so much dreary darkness thanks to Halloween, lighting candles is a nice contrast.

Of course, it also makes for a decent party trick. So if you load into custom games, feel free to impress your friends by showing off your detailed map knowledge.
