Overwatch NSE Spring is split into 2 main stages: Stage 1 Qualification (Weeks 1-3) and Stage 2 Swiss/Playoffs (Weeks 4-7)
In Stage 1, teams will initially be seeded into 3 skill groups. In the first round teams will play another team in the same skill group and in the following rounds be matched versus teams with a similar record in the tournament.
In Stage 2, the top 16 teams will start in the Division 1 (a double elimination bracket) and everyone else will continue playing in a Swiss tournament, starting with points based on finish in Stage 1. Teams that do well in the Swiss can qualify for the Division 2 or Division 3.
1st - £600
2nd - £360
3rd - £240
Top 8 - BUEC Championship Pins
In addition to other prizes this tournament awards British University Esports Championship Points with at least the top 64 teams guaranteed to earn points.
