New Zealand is in the Overwatch World Cup.

The World Cup is a community-driven competition between nations, where the skill of a country's top 100 players determines whether it is eligible for the competition.

Blizzard accepts 32 countries for the competition, and we snuck in at number 30, with a Skill Rating of 3922. Last month, we were sitting at number 33, so well done to those who gave us the extra push.

Australia qualified at 13 with a Skill Rating of 4184, the bloody show-offs.

Now voting is open for Overwatch players to select our three "national committee" representatives from a field of 10 provided by Blizzard.

At the time of publication, there are three days and 14 hours left for voting, which is done via your Blizzard account (on console, it must be linked to Xbox Live or PSN account).

Note: you must be an active Overwatch player to vote.

The three national committee reps are charged with selecting players for their country. So, in other words, players select selectors from a selection provided by Blizzard.

Four live group stage events are slated to take place this winter across Europe, North America, and Asia.

Each group stage event will see eight national teams going head-to-head for a full week, with the top two finishers automatically qualifying for the Overwatch World Cup finals at BlizzCon 2017.

You can watch these scheduled matches online for free, and a limited number of tickets will also be on sale starting in May for those who wish to attend in person.

The Overwatch World Cup debuted last year, with South Korea eventually coming out on top.
