Overwatch League: Schedule, Twitch Skins, Stage 2 standings and how to earn Twitch rewards


Twitch has announced that, in collaboration with Blizzard, Overwatch fans will be able to earn in-game rewards simply by watching the Overwatch League

If you link your account with your Twitch account, you’ll be able to earn League Tokens, which is the in-game currency used to purchase Overwatch League team skins.

"Each time a map concludes during a live broadcast, eligible viewers will earn a League Token," reads the announcement.

"Also, a percentage of lucky fans viewing the live broadcast when a match ends will be awarded 100 League Tokens, enough for a home-team skin of their choice!"

To put this into perspective, PC Gamer has done the math to work out how many skins Blizzard are dolling out:

"Each Overwatch League match consists of four maps, with an additional fifth tiebreaker map if the teams are tied 2-2. At three matches per day, four days a week, that amounts to a total of between 48 and 60 tokens per week if one were to watch every single match."

"Overwatch League has been averaging around 100,000 viewers at any given moment. If every one of those viewers had a properly linked account, 632 skins would be awarded at the end of the match."

When does Overwatch League Stage 2 start?

Everything takes place at the Blizzard Arena in California, where it will begin at 4pm PT local time.

That means for anyone in the UK, it all kicks off at 12am GMT on Thursday, February 22. So, midnight tonight, basically.

For the sake of anyone who watched the first stage, yes, this is slightly later than usual, but Blizzard made the decision to push the start time back slightly.

Overwatch League Stage 2 – CHANGES

There are some slight changes for Overwatch League's Stage 2's format.

Each stage of the Overwatch League – or OWL – features eight maps (two for each game mode) and this Stage we're seeing maps rotate out as others become active.

The game mode order has been changed for Stage 2, too. For Stage two, the series will begin with Assault and Control, before ending with Hybrid followed by Escort.

Thursday matches now begin at 4:00pm PST instead of their previous 2:00pm PST slot.

Saturday games have also been pushed back two hours, beginning at 1:00pm PT instead.

The full map set for Stage 2 can be found below:
