Overwatch League and Twitch Offer Viewership Rewards

As part of Blizzard and Twitch's Overwatch League broadcast deal, players can earn Overwatch League tokens (used to buy Overwatch League team skins) from watching the tournament on Twitch. You'll get 1 Token for every map played and a certain percentage of viewers will win 100 Tokens at the end of each match.

Alongside the reward program, Overwatch League viewers will be able to unlock skins, emotes, and themed items by using Twitch's Cheering with Bits feature. As individual people cheer for their respective teams, a counter will go up until the skin is unlocked and available for everyone.

The Rules of Competition, governing things like player eligibility, team composition, and competitive structure, is predictably far more cut-and-dried, since it covers the mechanical elements of the Overwatch League gameplay.

Overwatch League viewers can earn League Tokens while enjoying the action by linking their Blizzard Battle.net account with their account on Twitch, MLG.com or OverwatchLeague.com. A Cheer leaderboard also tracks top Cheerers to show who's the biggest fan. Overwatch viewers on Twitch cannot only share their fandom with others, but earn League Tokens just for watching, and unlock rewards and insider content.

This is just the beginning, with Twitch also teasing a VIP ticket feature to be implemeted later in the season. We'll swing back around to our grades later in the season to see if OWL keeps evolving to meet the needs of its viewers (it's already adapted once with some much-needed schedule changes), but for now, the League seems like it's in a pretty good place.

"Today's news illustrates Twitch's commitment to bringing the best possible experience to our Overwatch League fans", said Mike Minton, Sr. You can earn timed-exclusive hero skins this way, and you can also unlock emotes and other team-branded items.
