Overwatch League-Twitch Deal Worth At Least $90M

You can check out the full schedule for the first stage over on the official Overwatch League site (which, neatly enough, is displayed in your local time). If for some reason you felt inclined to buy every single one of these new skins, it would cost you just shy of $1,200.

If you're excited about the start of the inaugural season of the Overwatch League on January 10th, we have even more great news.

The Overwatch League is a big bet for Blizzard/Activision, which has gone all-in to promote and support the league for its newest and fastest growing title (that fastest growing medal may be a function of the game's novelty, or a function of the incredible spread of gaming since the launch of Overwatch in 2014 and the company's last completely new game launch ... in the 1990s).

"Given Overwatch's consistent reign as a top-viewed game by our community, we look forward to offering their pioneering style of league play to a large and passionate fan base that will be able to bond over not only their favourite plays, but hometown pride". All players have received 100 free Overwatch League tokens, which are the game's new currency system specifically for the new skins.

The tab will also include the new Overwatch League skins.

The Nokia 6 (2018) is smaller and fiercer than its predecessor was
In addition to 4G VoLTE, the Nokia 6 (2018 ) provides support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS including standard headphone port. So what has changed compared to the 2017 model? The only difference lies in the positioning of the fingerprint scanner.

However, the money you pay won't be going to Blizzard, but instead will be used to fund the actual teams.

In massive news for the esports industry, popular online streaming service Twitch has partnered with the Overwatch League in order to provide a steady outlet to broadcast the league's first two seasons to internet users and esports fans across the globe. Overwatch publisher Activision-Blizzard's in-house platform MLG.tv will show half of the regular-season contests, but the dominant share of the audience will come via Twitch, which will stream in Korean, English and French everywhere except China. This two-year deal, which encompasses the entirety of the league's first two seasons, makes that a reality.

The Overwatch League will run, at the Blizzard Arena in Los Angeles, until June, with play-offs and finals scheduled for July.

The deal is not a surprise considering that Twitch and Blizzard have a long history of collaborating for esports events.
