The Newest Overwatch Creation: Flash Ops

The Newest Overwatch Creation: Flash Ops

To capitalize on the incredible momentum that Overwatch currently has, they are currently working on their next project. This time it is going to be Flash Ops. This is an in person event that will take place at microsoft stores on Thursdays from 4/19/18 to 6/21/18. According to their forum post:

Flash Ops are in-person celebrations for fans of all ages, interests, and skill levels. Whether you’re a grizzled veteran of competitive play, an intrepid archivist who can recite the entire history of the Omnic Crisis verbatim, an avid viewer of Overwatch esports, or a shiny new cadet who’s just really into Overwatch, Flash Ops has something for you.

It appears that they will be doing Flash Ops in seasons to allow for changes and updates. The first season will only take place at Microsoft stores that are partnered. While this is clearly a promo for microsoft in the beginning, it will be useful for them to learn how to proceed in the future from a uniform environment.

While we still don’t know a lot about this, it seems like it will contain tournaments in several arcade game modes (1v1, 3v3, ect.), arts and crafts, and even Overwatch trivia. I am certainly very excited for this event, and would love to see where it goes. The info and updates will be coming from their Path to Pro twitter, so check them out to join the Flash Ops!
