  29. Portugal - 3930
  30. New Zealand - 3922
  31. Austria - 3900
  32. Romania - 3861

Now that phase 1 is completed and the top 32 countries have been determined, phase 2 will commence where players will need to assemble their country's own Overwatch World Cup National Committee. Every National Committee will consist of three local experts who will be responsible for roster picks during the tournament. The National Committee selection has two stages. Firstly, ten nominees from a qualified country who are experts like analysts, coaches and many more will be introduced. Secondly, players will vote for the National Committee for their own country.

Once phase 2 is complete, live qualifiers to fight into the finals of Overwatch World Cup 2017 will begin. A series of four group stage events are scheduled for this summer across Europe, North America and Asia. Each of these group stage events will have eight teams pushing and contesting the payload for a full week, and the top two teams will automatically qualify for the Overwatch World Cup finals which will take place at BlizzCon 2017.

Did your country make it into the top 32? If yes, which country is it and where does it rank amongst the top 32? Sadly, Malaysia failed to climb up the ranks and remained at rank 44.
