Overwatch League is arguably one of the most viewed esports leagues in the US and US is crazy about the stars. During its inaugural 2018 season, Overwatch League hosted an All-Star weekend which, of course, was very successful. So, Blizzard decided to make it an annual event. Overwatch League All-Star weekend will take place at the Blizzard Arena in Los Angeles from May 15th to May 16th.
Naturally, every All-Star weekend participant won’t be random. Blizzard has already announced a public vote where you can select which players should start in the event. 6 players from each division will make to the division All-Star team, with 12 additional invited as ‘reserves’.
The winners of the public vote will be announced in early May, ahead of the event in mid-May. During the first day of the event, players from Pacific and Atlantic divisions will face off in a series of custom games, however, the main spectacle, an All-Star game, will happen the following day.
Overwatch League All-Star weekend will be broadcasted on League’s site, Twitch, and selected TV channels.
