Starting today, Steam users (of which it’s safe to say there are a lot of) will be able to link their Twitch accounts to the popular gaming service. This will come as great news to Dota 2 fans as this will allow you to be eligible for tournament item drops while watching Twitch streams, so long as you own the ticket for that event. No longer will you have to to choose between watching events on either DotaTV or Twitch, and risk missing out on your in-game rewards. To link your account, visit the “Connections” page of your Twitch account settings.
We’re excited to see what the future holds for Twitch and Steam, but for now, check out the official Dota 2 blog for more information on their recent update.
