Overwatch League All-Stars Asia: Start time, schedule, players, prize pool & where to watch

Check out everything you need to know about the Asian All-Star events, including players, schedule, prize pools, and more.

In an unprecedented event and due to external circumstances like the COVID-19 pandemic forcing the Overwatch League to pivot from an offline competition played at venues across the world to an online format, this year, OWL will have two separate All-Star events.

With North American and Asian based teams playing most of their matches from their respective regions, connection issues could potentially ruin the fun All-Star side events have to offer, especially now that there are cash prizes involved.

As the Asian events take place first, here's everything you need to know, including schedule, players, prize pools, events, and more. 

OWL All-Stars Asia: Schedule & Start time

OWL All-Stars Asia: Players & events

Here's a list of all the events that will take place and the players taking part on each:

All-Star Game

Coaches will draft among the players at each All-Star event to field two teams that will play a 6v6 match in a three-map set. In the event of a tie, an additional map will be played.

  • Map 2: Teams pick opponent heroes and play on an escort map. For this map, each team will submit six heroes for a 2-2-2 comp to be played by the opposing team. Players will not be required to play their traditional roles.
  • Map 3: Tiny Overwatch Workshop mode—where all players start off with tiny character models, but begin to grow in size as they do damage and healing—using a control map.
  • Map 4 (tiebreaker, if needed): All Damage/All Tank/All Support on a first-to-2 control maps. Each round of the map will feature all players playing one specific role.

If a Winston pushes the Wrecking Ball off the map or if a Winston falls off or gets knocked off the map, the opponent scores a point.
