About Winter Premier and the future plans of NGE at Overwatch
“We were totally satisfied with the organized tournament. PAX Arena – a very comfortable place for competitions in Overwatch. The audience and the players gave it to the full, which is great.

On improving the quality of translations
“Watch the game on Overwatch is not so easy because of the 12 players on the map, the special abilities of the characters, switching between players during the battle, the lack of breaks between contractions, and more. In the near future much will change for the better. From a third-person audience will be visible to players health bars, the color contrast between the teams will be more clear, there will be more operators.
And the audience with commentators soon realize what you need to pay attention to the game, and what not. Yet it is important to understand that the audience will always require to show him something interesting, even if nothing interesting is happening on the screen is not. Because of this, sometimes it is difficult to decide on what is really important in the game. “
