What to watch? April 30 - May 5 ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Dozens of esports matches are played every day. It is very easy to get lost in the competition's wild turmoil, so we created the "Ones to watch" rubric, where we will allocate five tournaments every week, which, in our opinion, should be followed. Here we go!

The seventy-fifth Intel Extreme Masters event will be held this week in Sydney. Sixteen teams will play between themselves in a very complex format. The main favourites of the tournament are Team Liquid, MiBR and Renegades, who are playing at home.

We also note that several teams will come forward with substitutions at once. XANTARES from BIG and FaZe Clan's NiKo and AdreN are forced to miss the tournament due to visa problems. Therefore, some of the serious participants, unfortunately, will not be able to show their full strength.

Prize pool: $5.000.000

Stream: Blizzard

It's time for Overwatch League Second Stage's final week. Five teams have already guaranteed the places in playoffs, and the remaining three tickets will be drawn in a serious contest.

The favourites to hit the top 8 are Dallas Fuel, taking full advantage of the home site in the special Dallas Homestand Weekend event, and Hangzhou Spark. The chances of Paris Eternal and Atlanta Reign are not yet zero, but, unfortunately, are not too big.

The first match will take off on May 3 at 1:30 CEST.
