The Overwatch League All-Stars are back for the 2020 season! It’s a bit of a different format this time around ⁠— no Pacific vs Atlantic rivalry, but you’ll still get to see Asia and North America’s best in action, having a bit of fun at the same time.

All-Stars is the time Overwatch League players can let their hair down and have a bit of fun on stage. While in previous years it’s been divided by the Atlantic and the Pacific, this time, it’s being divided by Asia and North America.

What events are happening at OWL 2020 All-Stars?

The OWL All-Stars event is a good time for players to let their hair down just before the end of the season. It’s also a great watch, with fun little challenges breaking up the serious battles. You’ll be able to catch your favorite OWL players doing these events at All-Stars 2020:

  • All-Star Game: Coaches draft two teams of six to play a three-map set, with different quirks for each game, like picking for the opponents or messing around in the Workshop.
  • Widowmaker 1v1: first to five eliminations. Headshots only.
  • Talent Takedown: two teams of casters will take each other on to decide who the best talent is.
  • Winston Skills Challenge (Asia only): be the first Winston to knock a neutral Wrecking Ball into the Ilios Well, scoring points for every successful time.
  • Genji Skills Challenge (Asia only): dust off the Dragon Blades, because it’s time to have a good old “1v1 me” with Genji.
  • Ana Skills Challenge (Asia only): more 1v1 action, this time featuring Ana. Hopefully the players’ sleeps are on point.
  • Who is Meta? (Asia only): 8-person hero gauntlet deathmatch, where players cycle through 22 heroes, swapping once they get an elimination.

OWL 2020 All-Stars begins on September 26.

Overwatch fans want to honor player who died saving woman from attacker

The Overwatch community is rallying behind a 26-year-old player who passed away earlier in October after defending a woman from a man who allegedly broke into her home with a knife.

Tiago de Souza, who reportedly played thousands of hours and mained Hanzo, Pharah, Sigma, McCree and Doomfist, reportedly gave his life to save a friend and her daughters.

According to Brazilian media, Tiago was at the woman’s house when her ex-partner broke in with a knife in-hand, trying to attack her.

Investigators say the suspect beat the woman with punches. When Tiago tried to interfere, he was allegedly stabbed and died on the spot.

The suspect later went to the police station in Prudentópolis on his own accord and was detained.

A petition on the website Avaaz describes Tiago as “very fond of science and questioning the mysteries of the universe.”

“He liked several games, but undoubtedly his passion was Overwatch,” the petition continued, noting how he had unlocked four golden guns for different heroes through competitive play.

Tiago enjoyed playing as Hanzo.

“Tiago was an incredible, selfless and generous person, who gave his life to save someone else’s,” the petition said. “We, friends and family, do not want your courageous attitude to be forgotten, and nothing better to honor you than with a tribute in your favorite game.”

So far, over 2,000 people have signed the petition asking Blizzard to honor the player, though they didn’t specify on how they would like the company to pay tribute to Tiago.

Potentially, if Blizzard were going to honor the player, they could do so on the Brazilian Lucio Ball map for the Summer Games event, or even something from Overwatch 2, whenever that game is released.

Blizzard does have a decent track record of honoring its players. Notably, Blizzard immortalized the streamer Reckful by adding a Rogue Trainer NPC with his gamer tag in World of Warcraft.

Hopefully, Blizzard can continue this trend an honor the Brazilian player.
