History[edit]

APEX[edit]

Overwatch APEX is the Premier tournament series in South Korea, run by OnGameNet, abbreviated as OGN, a television channel in South Korea dedicated to Esports. The first season began in late 2016, and each season has taken place over the course of several months, with breaks in play between each consecutive season. Since the tournament's inception, it has usually been regarded as the highest level of competition in Overwatch.

Prior to Season 4, four western teams would be invited each season to compete with 12 teams from Korea.

Western Teams and Super Week, Season 4[edit]

The OGN production team announced on July 7th, 2017, that no more Western teams would be invited for APEX Season 4 onwards. Therefore, no Super Week was held, and all teams from APEX Season 3 and the top 5 teams from Challengers Season 4 were promoted directly to APEX Season 4.[1]
