Lots of events are coming to a head as we see cross-national storylines converge at WESG, Final Round, Heroes of the Storm, and more. If you've got an urge to espouse your national pride, there's a good chance you'll find it in one of the events below.

Final Round is one of the biggest fighting game events of the year and this year will not only feature Dragon Ball FighterZ, but an exhibition between SonicFox and GO1, the best players from the United States and Japan, respectively already brought the house down. Make sure to check out the full list of games and streams to see your fighting game of choice. (Streams and Schedule)

Another cross-game event is the World Electronic Sports Games, which will bring major championships across four different games to China this week, so make sure to find your game of choice and watch through the links below.

Finally, this yera's SXSW event will feature thre big tournaments for wildly different games: Clash Royale, Arena of Valor,and Injustice 2. It's a strange mix, but so is SXSW sometimes, so hopefully it works out. (Stream / Schedule)

If you're a Smash guy, catch some Super Smash Bros. Melee action this week at The Mango, an event based on the player. (Stream and Schedule)

The West recently had their Heroes of the Storm clash, so it's only fair that this week would host the HGC Eastern Clash in Taipei, Taiwan. (Stream / Schedule)

About 1600 miles away, Hearthstone is having its own event in Bangkok, Thailand, named, oddly enough, the HCT Bangkok. Go figure! (Stream / Schedule)

Finally in the world of Blizzard games, the good ol' US of A continues to host the Overwatch League but remember: The teams hail from all over the world. (Stream / Schedule)

Halo 5: Guardians is in Mexico City this weekend, marking the final pit stop before the finals in Seattle next month. (Stream / Schedule)

You can also catch more League of Legends action this week, as we're a couple weeks away from the playoffs. (Stream/ Schedule)

Also underway is the Rocket League Championship Series, which features a slew of old and new pro teams duking it out for several weeks. (Stream / Schedule)

That's it for this weekend! Let us know if we missed an event, or if there's a scene you'd like us to cover, in the comments.
