Overwatch Gets Separate Currency For League Skins

Overwatch League Uniform Skins Will Be Available for In-Game Purchase

Overwatch League Uniform Skins Will Be Available for In-Game Purchase

Nanzer said that Blizzard made a decision to implement this system "to ensure that the correct amounts from your League-related purchases go towards the teams". It is said that the tokens will become an indicator of each team's popularity and players' taste in the skin.

In the announcement, Nanzer noted that Overwatch has already announced the concept at Blizzcon and it will be effective early next year for all the team players in Overwatch League.

There are 12 Overwatch League teams based in several cities around the world, with each one looking to be crowned as the inaugural Overwatch League champions and take home a grand prize of $1 million.

The currency and sales of skins directly supports teams in the League.

"We want to make sure that players can directly support their favorite Overwatch League teams, which is exactly what our league token system allows us to do", Blizzard said.

Teams will have access to color themed skins in the gameplay which will make it easier to identify team members and be visually uniform as well.

The Overwatch League tokens will be used for all the in-game items related to the league and could not be used to buy loot boxes.

It remains unclear, however, how players will be able to acquire more Overwatch League tokens, such as whether they can be earned while playing matches. When the currency launches, each player should have enough to purchase at least one of the skins for their chosen team.

The Overwatch League kicks off on January 10, and 12 teams will be participating across the Atlantic and Pacific divisions.
