The inaugural season of the Overwatch League has concluded, but there’s one last chance to see some of its stars in action.

Taking place on August 25-26, All-Stars will see representatives of the Atlantic and Pacific Division go head-to-head in a series of challenges, culminating in a competitive best-of-five match.

While some Overwatch League players will compete at the Overwatch World Cup, for many this could be their final official appearance before Season Two, which is expected to kick off in early 2019.

Here’s everything you need to know to catch all the action at the All-Stars event:

The Stream

As with the rest of the Overwatch League season, the All-Stars event will be broadcast in multiple languages and available on Twitch, the Overwatch League website and app, and the MLG app. The event will also be broadcast on ESPN and Disney XD from 4-10pm PDT (7pm-1am EDT, 12-6am BST, 9am-3pm AEST) on Saturday August 25, and from 11am-2pm PDT (2-5pm EDT, 7-10pm BST, 4-7am AEST) on Sunday August 26.

The Challenges

Here’s a look at all of the challenges that will take place . All players from each team must participate in at least one challenge on the first day, and all players must compete in at least one map of the All-Star game.


The Lúcioball showdown will be a 3v3 best-of-three using standard Lúcioball settings on the Busan Lúcioball Arena map, with each game lasting five minutes.

Mystery Heroes

Mystery Heroes will be a 6v6 best-of-three using competitive settings, to be played on Ilios, Nepal, and Lijiang Tower. Every time a player respawns, they will be assigned a new random hero.

Widowmaker 1v1

Four players from each team will compete in the Widowmaker 1v1 tournament, first facing off within their respective Divisions before the champion from each Division faces off in a final match. Quarter-finals and semi-finals will be first to seven eliminations, with the final being first to ten. The quarter-finals will be played on Castillo, the semi-finals on Necropolis, and the final on Ecopoint: Antarctica.

Talent Takedown

The only match not featuring the all-star players, the Talent Takedown will see two teams of Overwatch casters and analysts go head-to-head.

The teams were selected by the coaches of the Pacific and Atlantic Division squads ahead of the event and they will play a best-of-three, with standard competitive rules for the first two games followed by a Lúcioball decider if needed. The rosters for the Talent Takedown are as follows:

Atlantic Division:

  • Brennon ‘Bren’ Hook
  • Josh ‘SideShow’ Wilkinson
  • Malik Forté
  • Alex ‘Goldenboy’ Mendez

Lockout Elimination

The Lockout Elimination competition will be a 6v6 best-of-three using standard Lockout Elimination rules, to be played on Oasis University, Necropolis, and Castillo. The goal is simply to eliminate the other team, but the winning team in each round will be unable to use the heroes that they won with for the rest of the game. The first team to win three rounds wins the map.

All-Star Game

The weekend will conclude with a full competitive best-of-five between the Atlantic and Pacific Division teams, in which all players must participate in at least one map. The map pool will be King’s Row, Rialto, Horizon, Route 66, and Ilios.


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.

Step by step for best turret placement in JR from Overwatch

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.
