It’s time for the second Overwatch League tournament of the season, which means there are more skins to unlock. You can also get Overwatch League Tokens. Oh, and there should be some top tier fantasies Monitoring to appreciate too.
This time around you can earn a Mercy skin just for watching enough matches live. There is also a legendary Widowmaker skin that you can snag as well. Check Out How To Get That Skin Here:
You will need OWL tokens to get this Widowmaker skin. You can get Overwatch League Tokens and Skins just by watching OWL matches live on YouTube, but you’ll need to complete a few steps first.
If you are a console gamer, you will need to connect your account to a Battle.net account. PC players already have a Battle.net account. Soon everyone will need one of these accounts anyway. You can read more about how to link to Battle.net in my cross play guide:
After that, you will need to link your Battle.net account to YouTube. Go to the connected apps settings on YouTube and choose the Battle.net option. After you log in, you will see a message saying “accounts logged in”. Then you should be ready.
You’ll know for sure that everything works the next time you watch an Overwatch League show. On the row of buttons below the video, you should see the word “Connected” next to the Like / Dislike, Clip, and Share buttons. For every hour of live OWL you watch, you will receive five tokens. Not only that, you will be able to watch high level Monitoring matches in 4K.
YouTube is perhaps the most accessible option to get free OWL tokens. You will earn rewards when you watch on the YouTube website or mobile app, YouTube mobile website, or by viewing pictures in picture on mobile. If you watch on built-in players or through a YouTube app on a TV or media device, you will not earn the rewards.
You can also earn Drops by watching matches on the OWL website and app. All you need to do is log in with your Battle.net account.
If you play Monitoring on multiple platforms, you will get Overwatch League Tokens for everyone who is logged into your Battle.net account.
To get the gray and white versions of the Overwatch League Mercy skin for free, you’ll need to watch four hours of live OWL matches during the June game. You will receive the skins within 24 hours of obtaining them.
Residents of certain countries unfortunately cannot earn rewards on YouTube or the OWL site / app. They include people in North Korea, Sudan, Crimea, Syria, Japan, and China (except Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau). Promotional rules include more information on eligibility.
If you can’t watch June Joust’s matches live to earn the rewards (they happen late at night for European viewers), there are replays the next day. As long as you watch them live, you will always earn rewards. If you watch both the live stream and the replay, hey, that’s a double token for you!
While there is a lot for fans to gain during the June game, let’s not forget that this is an esports tournament. The stakes are high for the four teams involved: New York Excelsior, Shanghai Dragons, Dallas Fuel and Atlanta Reign. In addition to the tournament title, there are cash prizes, with the winning team getting $ 100,000. Perhaps more importantly, there are bonus league points at stake, which are essential for qualifying and ranking the season playoffs.
