Overwatch World Cup rankings show China is currently the best at Overwatch

Alice Bell Updated on by

The second phase of the Overwatch World Cup is underway, with 32 countries making it through based on the average skill ranking of each country’s top 100 players. China ranks at first place, with a skill rating of 4550. The UK comes in sixth, just squeaking in a mere two points ahead of Canada.

For phase two you can vote for the Competition Committee for your region, a group of player representatives who’ll pick the teams from their countries that they feel should go on to compete. You have three votes to give out, and have until May 5 to do so, with the Committee members being announced three days later.

The Group Stage will be taking place over the summer, with the final phase, the playoffs, in November.

If you’re interested, here’s the full skill ranking for the 32 regions at phase 2. You can see some of the separations are on a knife edge, so things could be very interesting come the summer.
