Show your colors and earn rewards with the Overwatch League on Twitch
You all know those fans. The ones covered in face paint who cheer louder than the rest. Who bleed their team colors and want everyone to know it. Fandom is an awesome thing, and we can’t think of any reason why showing your colors should be limited to IRL events.
When Overwatch League Season 1 began, we promised to reward viewers who catch all the action on Twitch. Now that Stage 2 is kicking off, it’s the perfect time to reveal just how that works.
Get League Tokens: Collect League Tokens just for being in the (virtual) stands. All you have to do is connect your Blizzard Battle.net and Twitch accounts, which you can do super easily right here. You’ll get one League Token at the end of every live map finish¹. And some lucky viewers will get 100 tokens for every final map they watch per match — enough to get your favorite Overwatch League team skin in the game.²
Unlock Twitch Emotes & In-Game Skins: In any Overwatch League game, Cheer with Bits to show off your fandom, hype up your favorite teams, and unlock exclusive loot. Here’s how it all works.
- Everyone watching can work together by Cheering with Bits to unlock Overwatch League skins not yet available in game
- Your own Cheering progress unlocks Overwatch exclusive hero emotes to use in chat and team-branded loot as well. Every 100 Bits you Cheer unlocks one of these awesome hero emotes.
Collecting these Hero emotes also starts you down the road to unlock 2 in-game skins. Collect 13 Hero emotes and unlock the Mercy skin; collect all 26 Hero emotes and you’ll unlock the Genji skin!
- Cheer 150 Bits and unlock a team emote.
- Cheer 250 Bits and instantly unlock a set of quote emotes.
- Cheer 500 Bits or more and unlock 5 more quote emotes (completing the set of 10) and share some of them with other viewers in chat!
- Protip: If you Cheer 500 Bits in one go, you’ll unlock all 10 quote emotes, 3 team emotes, and 5 hero emotes all at once! Just make sure to use 3 different team Cheermotes for 150 Bits each in the Cheer, like in the below example.
Checking out all those gold team emotes in chat and wondering where they’re from? You can get those and much more with the Overwatch League All-Access Pass on Twitch.
