Description: The Atlantic and Pacific Division All-Stars will compete in a series of custom skill-based games. The 18 players on each roster will compete in at least one game mode, and there will be no substitutions within each game.
The Atlantic and Pacific teams will compete in a 3v3 best-of-three series using standard Lúcioball settings on the Busan Lúcioball Arena map. Each match will last five minutes. If a match is tied at the end of five minutes, then the next goal wins.
The Atlantic and Pacific teams will compete in a 6v6 Mystery Heroes game using standard competitive settings in a best-of-three series on control maps Ilios, Lijiang Tower, and Nepal. For Mystery Heroes, players will be assigned a random hero at the start of each map, and a new random hero on each respawn.
The Atlantic and Pacific coaches will select their four best Widowmaker players for this mini-tournament. The four players from each squad will compete head-to-head until there’s one Atlantic and one Pacific champion. The two champions will face off in the final. The winner for all matches prior to the final will be first player to reach five eliminations. The final will be decided by the first to seven eliminations. Eliminations are headshot only, and automatic firing will be disabled. There will be no capture points, but after 30 seconds player locations will be visible to both players. A match will result in a draw after five minutes. This mode will be played on Castillo (quarterfinals), Necropolis (semifinals), and Ecopoint: Antartica (final).

Prior to All-Star Weekend, the Atlantic and Pacific coaches will draft two teams of casters and analysts. (Keep an eye on our social channels for draft results!) The two teams will square off in a 6v6 best-of-three series using standard competitive settings. The first map played will be King’s Row (hybrid). The team that loses the first map gets to select the second map. If the series is tied 1-1, a game of Lúcioball will be the tiebreaker. If the Lúcioball match is tied after five minutes, the next goal wins. Overwatch League players will help call the game along with the casters and analysts not playing.
The Atlantic and Pacific teams will square off in this 6v6 competition using standard lockout elimination settings. The winner will be determined in a best-of-three series. The maps for this mode are Oasis University, Necropolis, and Castillo.
