    Overwatch League 2020 Season - Where average players learn about stale metas

    New season starts in a few weeks. This season will have a lot more travel as every week will be hosted by a different team. Also means fewer games and games are only on Saturday and Sunday, I believe.
    Schedule:

    Worth noting, it will not be broadcast on Twitch this year:
    Activision Blizzard and Google announced today a multi-year strategic relationship to power new player experiences. Google Cloud will serve as the preferred provider for Activision Blizzard's game hosting infrastructure and YouTube as its exclusive streaming partner worldwide, excluding China, for live broadcasts of its popular esports leagues and events — including Overwatch League, Call of Duty League, Hearthstone Esports, and more.

    No idea how this will affect earning tokens to buy skins yet.

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

    I guess the actual homestands are cancelled. Contingencies were implemented and all Chinese teams have relocated to Seoul to practice and play the first 2 months at a venue TBD.

    First matches were this weekend. NY and Vancouver came out on top with two wins each, London lost both their games, so not a great start..

    As far as I can tell, they still have no info on how to earn tokens for free going forward (some people have pointed out that it wasn't added till partway through the first season, so they could still add it at some-point this season).

    If you've got two-hundred points lying around:
    The 3-3 meta dominated much of the 2019 Overwatch League season. One of the featured elements of the “GOATS” comp included Brigitte. To commemorate that era, and have some fun with it, we’re releasing a legendary skin: the GOAT Brigitte. Get yours today for 200 League Tokens—but don’t wait, the skin will only be available until Feb. 19.

    yeah no real way to get that skin unless you pony up or had shit saved from last year. Pass. You aren't getting a dollar from me, Blizzard. Find another whale.

    London might lose this series, but that 'full' hold on Dorado was amazing.
