Exclusive rewards available to fans during OWL finals

Blizzard has announced that exclusive in-game rewards will be available to Overwatch fans watching the Overwatch League broadcast on Twitch.

Players who watch OWL matches on Twitch will receive double the usual amount of league tokens per map played, as well as exclusive sprays for use in-game.

The double multiplier on league tokens will be applied at the end of each map, so players can earn two points instead of the usual one over the course of the finals. Unfortunately for viewers of the stream, the multiplier does not apply to the random drops of 100 tokens that are given out to a small percentage of viewers.

There are four sprays to be earned, each depicting various heroes watching the event together. The featured characters and spray names are “Match’s On” with Hanzo, Zarya, Sombra, and McCree; “Watchparty: Gibraltar” with Mei, Winston, Tracer, and her Tracer’s canonical partner Emily; “#1 Fan” with D.Va, and “Living Room” with Brigitte, Reinhardt, Torbjörn, and Bastion.

Each spray will be available for use in-game across all platforms once it’s earned. The loot can be unlocked after watching three hours of the stream on both July 26 and July 27 for the full duration of the match. Sprays “Match’s On” and “Watchparty: Gibraltar” can be earned on the 26th, while the remaining two can be earned on the 27th.

To ensure eligibility, viewers must link their Battle.net accounts with their Twitch accounts. Console players will have to link their Blizzard accounts in-game to receive the sprays.
