Overwatch League Skins And New Token System Now Live
The Overwatch League is finally here, and with it are the Overwatch League skins to match the teams going up against each other. To inaugurate the very first professional competitive season, Blizzard has launched appropriately themed skins for all of the characters. That’s right, all 26 heroes have their own variation of each competing team’s jersey patterns and colors, complete with logos in plain sight to show fan spirit! That sums up to a whopping total of 312 skins.
There stands the Boston Uprisiing, London Spitfire, Dallas Fuel, Los Angeles Gladiators, Florida Mayhem, Houston Outlaws, Los Angels Valiant, San Francisco Shock, New York Excelsior, Philadelphia Fusion, Seoul Dynasty, and Shanghai Dragons. All of the teams make for a total of 12 competing to win the season! Though many were revealed in December last year, check out a few more revealed this time around:
In order to purchase the Overwatch League skins, Blizzard launched a new microtransaction system called League Tokens. Though they aren’t cheap, it is meant to support the professional teams financially as they venture into the void. Thankfully, to commemorate and celebrate this special occasion, Blizzard wants to give 100 tokens to the each community member for free, allowing for the purchase of one skin of choice, valuing in at 4.99 USD. To cash in your free tokens, be sure to log onto Overwatch anytime between now and February 13th.
The tokens will be sold in the following denominations – 100 tokens for $4.99, 200 for $9.99, 400 for $19.99, 900 for $39.99, and 2600 for $99.99. It’s certainly not cheap, but the teams can’t eat ramen cups forever right? What do you think of the system in place to purchase Overwatch League skins?
