X6 Gaming are the champions of the inaugural Overwatch Contenders Korea.

X6 beat underdogs Ardeont with a comfortable 4-0 sweep in the final to secure the trophy.

Overwatch Contenders is the second tier of official Overwatch competition beneath the Overwatch League. While Contenders was run in North America and Europe in 2017, for 2018 the system has been revamped and expanded, with divisions now in seven regions around the world.

Overwatch Contenders Korea is the spiritual successor to OGN’s APEX, which was the world’s premier Overwatch tournament prior to the Overwatch League. While many of Korea’s greatest talents now compete in OWL, Contenders Korea is still expected to produce some of the game’s future superstars.

The playoffs produced a somewhat surprising finalist in Ardeont, who after an unexceptional regular season were able to eliminate favorites Element Mystic in the quarter-finals before making a run to the finals. Unfortunately, the fairy tale ended there, with X6 Gaming sweeping them aside convincingly.

Teams were awarded prize money based on their results in the regular season as well as their final placement. The bottom four teams will drop into Contenders Trials, where they will face the top four teams from the Open Division to reclaim a spot in Contenders Season Two.

  • 1st – X6 Gaming – $40,198
  • 2nd – O2 Ardeont – $21,620

How to get Overwatch Sombra Golden Gun Spray

Overwatch is always looking for new ways to keep their players engaged and new rewards are always a great way to do this. It looks like players will have an opportunity to get a shiny new spray featuring Sombra’s Golden Gun in Season 25. 

According to a leak from OverwatchNaeri on Twitter, players can earn a brand new spray in Season 25 of competitive play in Overwatch.

The spray is an animated image of Sombra’s weapon with a big “XXV” (25 in roman numerals) under the gun.

How to get the spray

Earning the spray is going to be the hard part. To get it, you need to reach the top 500 in competitive Season 25 of Overwatch. It shouldn’t matter if you finish in the Top 500, as long as you make it there at some point in the season. You should get the spray upon reaching the Top 500 for the first time. This is how other Top 500 sprays have worked in the past at least.

Getting to the Top 500 is exactly what it sounds like. You need to be in the top 500 players in your region according to your Skill Rating. Usually, this means you will need to be Grandmaster in rank around 4,200 Skill Rating. So if you want the skin and you aren’t quite Grandmaster yet, be sure to check out our guides and start grinding to get good!

When does Season 25 start?

Currently, it’s still Season 24, so you can’t get the new spray quite yet. Season 24 is currently set to end on November 5, which means that Season 25 should begin directly after that. Assuming there are no unexpected delays, you can expect the new season to begin on November 5 as well.

Season 25 should be no different than Season 24 outside of upcoming balance changes. The Overwatch team is still hard at work on Overwatch 2, which means we likely won’t see any radical changes or new content in the near future. So, you can expect the meta to be similar to what it is now and begin preparing for your climb once the new season starts.

Remember, your Skill Rating only gets a soft reset, so climbing now will also be beneficial for earning the skin once next season begins as well.
