Overwatch League Tokens Return as Stream Drops for Viewers

Overwatch League games are often exciting to watch on their own, but there is now a very strong incentive to watching them: Overwatch League tokens. The tokens can be spent on all platforms including PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

How to Get Overwatch League Tokens

Players will earn five tokens for every hour that they watch live Overwatch League matches. Tokens will be awarded at the end of each full hour of viewing. Viewing time is tracked continuously so there is no need to commit to watching several hours in a single day. Overwatch League tokens are only earned by watching live matches on the Overwatch League website on desktop or mobile, and on the Overwatch League mobile apps for both iOS and Android.
