The Overwatch League is kicking off this week and the first matches slated for Wednesday January 9th will start the competitive event off right! The Overwatch League in-game menu isn't just for staring at the shiny new skins - players can watch the games via this menu when they're live. It takes 100 Tokens to purchase a skin, and tokens run from $4.99 or your regional equivalent for 100 Tokens up to $99.99 for 2,600 tokens (enough to buy an entire team's skins for every hero in the game). Home-team "jerseys" are now available for all 12 teams and all 26 Heroes.
