    There was a chat when I was on their site for the Mayhem-Shock match earlier. I'm watching on the OWL site now though.

    Edit: Here's the site link with the chat:

    Edit 2: isn't regular season supposed to be on Twitch anyways?

    I could have bought an 11 pull and have 1000 gems left over, but all I got was this silly title.

    Activision Blizzard bought MLG last year. No way it will broadcast on Twitch, even if there were lucrative financial bonuses.

    That makes sense. I made an account there since that'll probably be used to unlock OWL skins.

    I think they're just playing hard to get to make Twitch pay out.

    OWL is pretty fun to watch when I have someone to root for.

    Seagull and Taimou are playing right now, rooting for them (They're winning 2:1)... IDDQD was playing yesterday when I tuned in.

    Next map is Eichenwalde

    Where can I watch the overwatch league matches?

    Is there an official stream or schedule posted?

    Two year deal for OWL to be broadcast on Twitch. Will be simulcast on MLG.tv

    I really wish I could understand the whole OWL thing. I mean yeah it's nice but it seems like Blizzard cares more about that than anything else at the moment.

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    Gonna root for the Gladiators because I live in LA and they're purple. This team better not be shit. I don't want Chargers syndrome for the rest of my life.

    I'm thinking Dynasty myself for the black and gold. Sadly none of the Lucio/Zen/Orisa skins really wow me.

    Well the majority owner of the Gladiators are the owners of the Rams, Stan and Josh Kroenke. I don't know if that's irony when you think of LA's NFL situation.

    I think it would be worth the teams to make player pages to help build narratives for each team, but I haven't seen too much besides the team intros and overviews on the /r/overwatch - https://www.reddit.com/r/Overwatch/c...ts_megathread/

    Competition and broadcast means sponsorships, sponsorships mean money.

    I was going to say:


    MERCHANDISING

    I mean, they can potentially make a killing on selling DIGITAL SKINS THAT HAVE NO MONETARY PHYSICAL VALUE.

    Hell if I know they will start selling team T-shirts sometime during Season 1.

    So how long til away team skins are available you think?

    Also for the sake of your sanity stay away from the OF. The shitstorms OWL caused is amazing.

    I don't think I will ever pay for any of the OWL skins, and simply use my free tokens for one. $5 is insane for what is essentially a recolor of a base skin. Also, I know they're probably making hand over fist money with this, but I looked up what players are getting paid. Minimum of $50k a year, housing options, and benefits. Damn.
