Overwatch League First Season Begins Today

Twelve permanent teams representing national and worldwide cities will face each other in regular-season matches, then the best teams will later compete in playoffs to determine the first-ever OWL champion.

The full schedule can be found at the very informative Overwatch League website and provides details, matchups and times for all six weeks of the season.

It's not such a surprise the event attracted so many eyeballs, the Overwatch League has had a huge PR push over the last 24 hours. People from all over the globe can now watch the matches between their favorite teams as they unfold from Twitch.

Further, while Goldhaber's job entails predicting Twitch viewership stream numbers that he claims to get right "90 percent of the time", he admitted to being "completely and utterly wrong" about Overwatch League's debut. This current season will run until July 28th, with each of its four stages lasting for five weeks apiece before the teams enjoy a week break. With Blizzard's pedigree for success and Overwatch's accessible, colourful gameplay I can't see it being anything but brilliant. Overwatch League has different teams associated with different esports clubs.

It's a game that's been acclaimed for its diverse and inclusive cast of characters, but somehow Overwatch's premier esports league has launched without a single female player.

With the first match set to kick off on January 10, players can now purchase skins for their favourite teams in-game with the use of unique credits.

As a viewer, watching sports is all about loyalty. Skins are sold individually for 100 Tokens.

How Will The Overwatch League Work? In the Pacific Division you have the Dallas Fuel, Los Angeles Gladiators, Los Angeles Valiant, San Francisco Shock, Seoul Dynasty and Shanghai Dragons.

And finally, there was the standout tie of the opening day, where Dallas Fuel was edged out by Seoul Dynasty.

The skins will be available for all 26 of the playable heroes in Overwatch, meaning that there are over 300 skins to choose from.

A number of changes have been made to Overwatch's visual presentation in order to make it easier to follow for the viewer. A chance for fans to make a connection with a team in the actual game is genius, it gives players a connection to teams outside of their regions.
