Overwatch League: Twitch snaps up broadcast rights

Overwatch – New Patch Introduces League Team Skins

For the first season, 12 franchises are representing major cities around the globe.

The teams met in combat for the first time during the preseason, December 6-9.

The first day saw three matches, and one in particular was a great indicator of some exciting Overwatch action to come over the course of the season.

The Atlantic Division teams will take the stage at the Blizzard Arena Los Angeles on Thursday.

Kim "Geguri" Se-yeon became a big name in the Overwatch scene when she was just 17, after she was bombarded with cheating accusations and death threats over her masterful play of pink-haired better-biceps-than-you-haver Zarya. Each skin looks and feels like a team's home jersey you would see on a professional sports team, making Overwatch League feel like the real deal. Goldhaber agreed with a fan that Overwatch League becoming one of the top four esports leagues in its first year "should be considered" a success.

Still, If Twitch and others in the streaming eSports space are willing to spend millions to secure these rights, it seems they think they can recoup those costs through lucrative advertising deals.

What's even more impressive about the Overwatch League viewer numbers is that the matches took place at ungodly European Union hours, and it didn't even include Chinese viewers, anyone watching on the MLG (Major League Gaming) stream, or people watching on the official phone app.

All players who log in between now and February 13, 2018, will receive enough League Tokens to obtain a team uniform of their choice free.

To help fans keep track of Overwatch League news, Blizzard has just released an official app for iOS and Android.

While city-based teams are standard in traditional sports leagues, they aren't the norm for eSports, where teams typically run under their own banners or those of the companies that sponsor them. Completely voluntary and have no impact on the gameplay of the game.

An estimated 191 million spectators world-wide watch esports competitions at least once a month, more than double the number from 2012, according to Newzoo BV.

Following his post on the Overwatch forums, Kaplan was then pushed by other fans to explain exactly what kind of "stuff" could cause Blizzard World to not be available in January.
