When Blizzard announces a new release, the competitive gaming community sits up and listens. There's good reason for this. Starcraft arguably launched the entire sport, and it still remains one of the most popular mainstays of the competitive gaming scene two decades later. Since then, practically every Blizzard release that can potentially be played competitively has made a dent in the e-sports market. Overwatch is no exception. With its bright and cartoony visuals and deep but implied lore, the personality of the game has sparked countless people's imaginations, and the focus on character-specific abilities and move sets has created a new sub-genre of the team based shooter, distinctly different from games like Call of Duty and Battlefield. This makes it as delightful to watch as it is to play, and Overwatch League helps you keep track of the personalities in the game and those holding the controllers. The fact that Overwatch League serves as the primary source of live streaming for the popular game is one of its main appeals. You'll never have to miss a game, as you can smoothly watch any games as they occur directly through your phone or other device. Alerts and notifications help you remember when new games are going down or stay up to date on the latest news in the gaming community. Blizzard also maintains an expansive catalog of past games, providing hours of in studio content and video on demand for their users. Whether you're an aspiring pro trying to learn the intricacies of the current meta or just a fan trying to catch up with your favorite player, you're bound to find what you're looking for here. Users have a great deal of control as to how they can customize their preferences. You can save preferred videos, tag upcoming streams that are of interest to you, and track your favorite team so you'll stay abreast of changes to their lineup and notifications about their upcoming games. Most players have complete profiles easily accessible through their streams or team sites, so you can dig deeper and learn more about the pros that interest you or figure out what's going on with the most promising new players in the league. Full standings stream live to the app, and they're supported with a huge catalog of analysis and commentary from some of the most knowledgeable names in the business. Overwatch offers support in over a dozen languages, and airtime or Wi-Fi is required to use the app. Blizzard is all about engagement with their fans, and that's reflected in the Overwatch League tokens system. Watching live streams allows you to earn one League token for each map win, and larger sums of tokens are awarded randomly. These can then be spent to purchase items in game for free.
