What To Watch This Weekend: Counter-Strike, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, And The Witcher III: Wild Hunt
We have some major events for some shooters, MOBAs, Fighters, and a speedrun of the Witcher III all on deck this weekend. That’s wild.
The Overwatch League continues today and tomorrow, and while the Shanghai Dragons aren’t playing either day, that doesn’t mean the matches won’t be exciting (seriously, when are they going to get a win?). (Stream / Schedule)
The last few Swiss rounds of the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive IEM Extreme Masters tournament conclude on Sunday, which means next week we start the playoff stage! (Stream / Schedule)

We’ve got to rounds of chill FGC action this week. First, Frostbite is one of the biggest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournaments of the year, with over 1,000 attendees and tournaments for both it and Rivals of Aether. (Streams and Schedule)

The European Speedrunning Assembly is in the final days of its speedrunning event, which will have runs of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, and Jade Empire
Rocket League is having the finals of its North American Renegade Cup, which brings together some of the best teams in the world for some off-season action. (Stream)
