BaseTradeTV Cup #2 announced



BaseTradeTV had launched their first ever Overwatch tournament back in April. The tournament was a Control only event with only Control maps being played. The plans for the organisation involved announcing another tournament in July, but due to the owners being involved in some accidents they had to postpone the event.

The news post regarding the postponement can be read here.

We’re sorry to inform our viewers that we will be postponing BaseTradeTV Cup, our second Overwatch event. Main caster Rifkin was involved in an accident that left both arms and collarbones broken. Recovery is expected to take 2 weeks or longer. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and hope to have a new tournament date soon.
