Earlier this year Twitch and Blizzard announced a partnership in which the Overwatch League will be streamable via Twitch’s platform. This proved to be a huge success where within its first week, the matches managed to nab 10 million viewers, and now it looks like Blizzard and Twitch are trying to encourage more viewers through rewards.

It has been announced that gamers can now earn Overwatch League Tokens by watch Overwatch League matches. All users have to do is link their Battle.net account on Twitch, MLG, or Overwatchleague.com. “Each time a map concludes during a live broadcast, eligible viewers will earn a League Token. Also, a percentage of lucky fans viewing the live broadcast when a match ends will be awarded 100 League Tokens, enough for a home-team skin of their choice!”

For those unfamiliar, Overwatch League Tokens are an in-game currency for Overwatch which are used to purchase Overwatch League team skins, which is an excellent way for gamers to show support for their favorite teams. In addition to earning tokens, Blizzard has also announced that they are partnering with Twitch for Overwatch League Cheering.

This is where gamers can Cheer with Bits which will unlock rewards, such as Hero emotes, Overwatch League skins that have yet to be released in-game, and more.
