The event, which will occur on December 12th and 13th, features an “art and fashion showcase, an exhibition match with influences and past players along with a competitive showmatch with the team’s 2021 rosters” along with other unannounced events. The Florida Mayhem, Atlanta Reign and LA Gladiators will be participating at the event as well. All of this will likely be streamed on twitch.tv/lavaliant but its locations has not been officially announced.
What to Expect
This event gives the Overwatch community opportunity a chance to shine. Influencers like Samito, Jay3, and Fran who are signed to the Mayhem and Reign likely will be in the involved.
