The Talent Takedown will kick off day one with coaches from the Atlantic and Pacific divisions drafting teams of Overwatch League broadcast talent for a three-map set of lockout elimination, escort, and control.
Shortly after the Talent Takedown, the top Widowmaker players from the Atlantic and Pacific divisions will face off in the first two rounds of the headshot-only elimination bracket. Players will only be able to use Widowmaker’s sniper rifle, and the first players to reach seven eliminations will advance to the next round.
All-Stars will then compete in the All-Star Arcade, which features five different game modes voted on by fans. The first game mode will be Sibling Rivalry, a classic game on Hanamura featuring three Hanzos and three Genjis on both teams. The second mode will be Healers Never Die, a supports-only mode on Nepal with a limit of one hero per team.
The Terrible, Terrible mode will take place afterwards, a damage-only mode on Hollywood, followed by Keeping the Peace, a McCree-only face off on Route 66. A tiebreaker, Thanks, but No Tanks, will come next, which will pit players against each other in a no-tanks game mode with a one hero limit.
The finals of the Widowmaker 1v1 will then wrap up Wednesday. The two All-Stars who emerged from the semifinals earlier in the day will then face off in the 1v1, and the first to reach nine eliminations will win.
