Together with Blizzard, Twitch and Initiative, who have played a key role in setting this up, we hope to explore a new approach to connecting with our amazing LEGO and Overwatch fans alike.”
How it works
Selected Overwatch streamers will be invited to captain a community team for a day long tournament taking place across the US, UK, France, Germany and Sweden. Each regional competition will feature 4 rounds of gameplay in round-robin fashion, earning points for each victory they secure. At the end of each regional competition, an ultimate regional Overwatch LEGO winner will be crowned. Each regional winner will then get a chance to choose a local charity where the LEGO Group will provide a donation of LEGO boxes.
“We wanted to add an extra LEGO touch to the tournament and give team captains the chance to share their victory with other children too. This is why we believe the donations are the best prizes for the winners,” said Sten.
The Twitch Rivals tournament will feature custom Workshop game modes created by the community offering viewers a fun and amusing competition to enjoy. Workshop game modes that will be featured in the competition include 10k Damage FFA, Steal the Crown, Freeze Tag and Play as 2 Heroes.
