Overwatch Event Recap [3.31.2018]
A special thanks to everyone who participated in our Overwatch event this past Saturday night [3.31.2018]. This event was organized in accordance of the first AJSA Special Operation of 2018. We broke two Xbox community records:
- Overwatch has surpassed Battlefield 4 and has become our longest running Xbox 'Weekly Event' series.
- The event lasted for 16 straight hours, running from 6pm EST to 10am EST. We broke our previous record of 12 hours and 30 minutes, set last year on May 27th, 2017 during our One Year Anniversary celebratory event for.....you guessed it....Overwatch! This is the second time in the row our Overwatch crew has stepped up to the plate to create these new records. Before May 2017, Battlefield 4 held the Xbox record as the longest running event at 12 hours (achieved originally in April 2016).
Thank you for those who came by during all hours of the night to show support and an exceptional thanks to those who rode out the event for the entire thing, staying up until it was all finished. Congrats, you're offically crazy for staying up that long! It was truly humbling and I'm so proud of what we as the Xbox community accomplished!
We have an amazing team of organizers and members who made this possible. Another special shoutout to our Overwatch Officer, WookieJedi, who ran over seven hours worth of custom games! Wookie...we're gonna have to think of some new custom modes after this!
Will Overwatch hold this record forever on Xbox or will another game and crew step up to try and beat this new record? Only time will tell!
