Overwatch League Announces Franchise Team Specific Skins

Overwatch will also introduce a league specific token system so that all purchases relating to Overwatch League content will be separate from standard purchases. The city approach conjures images of the formats used by sports organizations like the National Basketball Association and the NFL, but the Overwatch League's competitive format is actually structurally closer to the system used by the World Cup. The wide range of apparel included shirts, sweaters, jackets, and snapbacks, all bearing the emblems and names of Overwatch League teams. Every team will play 20 games within their division and 20 games outside of their division.

To qualify for the championship playoffs, which will be held from July 11 to July 22, a team must either win their division or rank in the top six in the regular season. Joining them will be the four remaining teams with the best record (regardless of division). These are unrecorded exhibition matches with no prize money on the line. It commands a $1 million prize pool.

The app is now available today in six countries: Chile, Israel , Italy , Portugal, Turkey, and Uruguay, on both, iOS and Android. As of April 2017, Instagram Direct, still married to the Instagram app, had around 375 million active monthly users.

League tokens will launch in early 2018 alongside new skins for all 26 Overwatch heroes for each of the 12 Overwatch League teams.

Nanzer confirms that the idea behind these skins is that they will work like team jerseys or uniforms which will be used by the teams during their official League matches.

"We want to make sure that players can directly support their favorite Overwatch League teams, which is exactly what our league token system allows us to do", Blizzard said. The opening day of the official season is January 10th.

Joel Matip and Nathaniel Clyne remain out for Liverpool , but Sadio Mane could return after he was on the bench for the Reds. We had 20 minutes in training and then we spoke for a little bit in the team meeting before the game again about it.

Can Blizzard's ambitious plan succeed?

The Overwatch League is slated to advance Overwatch esports considerably, in large part thanks to numerous structural improvements. How will the competitive matches shape the game's online meta?
