Overwatch League now has an official app

In anticipation of the regular season of the first Overwatch League tournament on January 10, 2018, the Overwatch League and streaming video service Twitch announced a two-year media rights partnership providing global live access to the six-month competition. However, this deal does not include China.

Among the Overwatch League app's many features are the ability to view various schedules and standings with real-time updates, and Blizzard plans to keep the app's feed fresh with loads of content including player profiles, game analyses, and exclusive interviews. One would assume the Cheermotes will work in a similar fashion to the system that Blizzard and Twitch have already used in Heroes of the Storm. Theses will be announced when they're available.

A subset of users may also see additional experimental features meant to gauge interest and gather feedback for the team. This week, a new system update is out for "Alpha ring" Xbox Insider testers that brings a few user-friendly features.

For more on the Overwatch League and plenty more guides on the game, be sure to search for Twinfinite. "That's why this historic and ground-breaking partnership is perfectly suited for Activision Blizzard, for Twitch, and-most importantly-for our growing global fanbase". Well, by "team", I mean three of us play Overwatch together sometimes. This inaugural season of the Overwatch League might be worth watching, though, as there's $3.5 million at stake.

Fifty percent of revenue from the skins will go to a "net shared revenue pool" for all 12 Overwatch League teams, Blizzard confirmed to Dot Esports in December. There have always been murmurs that Twitch would be the chosen destination and so it's the case. Now to wait and see how the OWL turns out.
