The starting line-ups for Overwatch League’s All-Star match-ups have been revealed, confirming who fans have selected to represent each region in the stand-alone weekend event.
The All-Star weekend will take place across August 25 and 26, and allows players and fans a welcome reprieve from the intense action of the Overwatch League proper. The matchups will see top players blow-off some steam in a series of custom games. Expect there to still be some serious competition here, though. That means no all-Torb line-ups.
Two teams, the Pacific Division and Atlantic Division, made up of a mix of players from the top league teams, will face off in a series of custom matches. A further 12 players, who will be picked by players, coaches, casters, and league staff, will face off in a run of ‘skill games’ in the lead up to the final match.
