Blizzard is doing it big for the introduction of the newest Overwatch 2 hero, Lifeweaver. To celebrate the interesting and handsome new support, Blizzard is bringing a Lifeweaver Invitational to the community.

Season 4 is already looking jam-packed with in-game events, including Thai New Year and Starwatch Galactic Rescue. But now Overwatch 2 players can also watch the pros use Lifeweaver in the Lifeweaver Invitational, allowing gamers to get a good taste of how to use Lifeweaver’s dynamic abilities, build a team comp around him, and create strategies that implement his platforms and healing.

What is the Lifeweaver Invitational?

The Lifeweaver Invitational will have teams of four composed of Overwatch League players and content creators. The captain of each team must draft their teammates during the Overwatch League Pro-AM Finals today, April 9.

The double-elimination event will work similarly to other small-scale tournaments except that every team must have a Lifeweaver on the roster. Matches will be first-to-three, meaning whichever team gets three wins first wins.

The map schedule is predetermined, so teams won’t have the luxury of choosing maps and game modes that suit them the best. This will even the playing field a bit as the world’s best Overwatch players try out Lifeweaver in a tournament for the first time.
