Fans Can Now Vote for the Overwatch League Season One All-Stars

Fans can now vote for players in the Overwatch League season one all-stars match.

After the inaugural season of the league concludes on July 28th, some of the league’s players will be back in action for an all-star weekend, taking place on August 25th-26th.

The all-star event will be headlined by a battle of star players from each of the two Overwatch League Divisions – Atlantic and Pacific. A total of thirty-six players will participate in the All-Stars weekend, but the first twelve will be selected by fan vote.

That fan vote has now opened, with fans able to endorse six players from each division. Voting is limited by role – fans can only vote for a maximum of two players in any category, with players separated into DPS, Support, Tank, and Flex groups.

However, some of the categorizations are slightly off compared to what many might expect – the big boss himself, Kim ‘Pine’ Do-hyeon, is down as a Flex player for instance, despite famously being one of the league’s flashiest DPS players. So, there is some room for stacking combinations that might otherwise have been prohibited, in some cases.

Once the fan vote has decided the starting six for each team, the remaining twelve players on each side will be chosen by the Overwatch League. Between the two, it should likely ensure both fan-favorites and deserving star players will participate.

The fan vote for All-Stars, much like the fan vote for the Overwatch League MVP, will be open until the regular season ends on June 17th.

How to use OP Torb turret placement in Overwatch Junkenstein’s Revenge

Junkenstein’s Revenge is one of the best ways to earn loot boxes during Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event, and there are a few spots for Torbjorn’s turret you should probably know about.

Halloween in Overwatch means plenty of new skins to unlock, including the Ragdoll Echo skin, which is now available until the event ends on November 3.

The only way to unlock the DPS hero’s new skin though is to win 9 games in any mode. If you stick to quick play and competitive this could easily take one or even two whole days, but if you simply grind them out in Junkenstein’s Revenge, the wins will only take a couple of hours instead.

Even though the seasonal PvE survival mode goes quicker than regular matches, you can definitely still lose if you don’t have the right team comp. This means that at all difficulty levels, Torbjorn is still a must-pick for his turret and it’s constant damage output.

You won’t get far in the harder difficulties of Junkenstein’s without Torb.

As for where to put this powerful, Zomnic-slaying device, there are several options that all work quite well, and are all fairly easy to pull off too – like on top of the overturned cart right down the middle lane. It has a commanding line of sight for the middle and left staircase spawns, and even covers part of the pond on the right side.

The best part of this spot might be the fact that it’s too close for Zombardiers to immediately target it, and it will hold boss aggro for as long as it’s around.

Next, placing the turret on the railing right on top of the left-hand stairs also gives it a great shot at all three spawns instead of just two, and gives you the ability to run up there and repair it when needed.

Finally, if you’re looking for something extra flashy to really impress your teammates, there’s even a way to get the turret up to the wooden platform just above the door where Widow and Ashe usually hang out.

Like in the clip above, head up the stairs to the right and go on to the platform they lead to (the place we all used to place the turret). Then head to the ledge closest to the door and aim at the ridge on the tower above the platform, straight up from the bush on the right side.

Another option is to jump from the edge and throw it at the apex of Torb’s leap if you have trouble getting it there while standing still. Toss it up, and your little guy is all set to rain down death on the army of undead charging the gates, and hopefully unlock that Echo skin a little bit quicker.
