'Overwatch' gets esports team skins and new currency in 2018

Blizzcon came with many announcements and while the world of gamers steadily approaches and prepared for more gaming news, Overwatch is going to be making some changes to its interface to offer a more interactive and playable gameplay. With gamers from around the world, participating in different levels as teams; there has been some difficulty with identifying team members.

"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.

The catch, however, is that players will not be able to purchase the Overwatch League team skins the same way that they buy all other Overwatch skins. He said that the designers of the game had team jerseys in mind when they designed the concept. According to Nanzer, while all 12 Overwatch League team skins will be available for all the heroes of the game, players will need to spend a new in-game currency named Overwatch League tokens. Earlier this year, Pokemon Go capped off the initial addition of Legendary Pokemon to the game with a two week long event in which all the Legendary Birds were available to fight.

The Overwatch League is set to kick-off next month, and each team has been crafted unique skins for each of the champs.

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. He did not say, however, whether players will be able to unlock more tokens through MLG-calibre plays of their own, or if they will only be able to buy them.
