All-Star festivities will begin with custom games on Wednesday, May 15. May 15 events will be broadcast on ESPN 2 alongside the normal viewing platforms and the match on May 16 will be broadcast on ESPNEWS.
Fans will have until April 28 to vote on the game's 12 starters, who will be divided by region much like last season's All-Star Game. Additionally, 12 reserves for both teams -- 24 in total -- will be selected by players, coaches, casters and Overwatch League staff. Complete rosters will be revealed in mid-May.
Voting will allow fans to pick two DPS players, two tank players and two support players for both rosters. Fans are not forced to separate players by any more detailed roles, meaning a fan can pick two main tanks for a team if they choose to. Fans must log into their Battle.net account to vote and are only given one vote per account.
Most players will have to have played at least 10 regular season maps to be eligible for selection to All-Star rosters. However, all active players who participated in the 2018 All-Star Game are eligible for selection to the 2019 game, regardless of the number of maps they have played this season.
The All-Star Game will once again take place at Blizzard Arena Los Angeles, where the majority of the 2019 Overwatch League season is taking place.
Additional details regarding game modes to be played, All-Stars gear and All-Stars skins will be revealed at a later date.
