Fans will have one last chance to earn enough tokens for the 2019 Overwatch League All-Star skins with extra drops during the All Star Weekend.
In 2018 for the first year of the All-Star Weekend new skins for Tracer and Genji were available for a limited time, but they haven’t been available in the shop since.
Two brand new skins for Mercy and Lucio are available this year for the Overwatch League All-Star Weekend and some fans are scrambling to come up with enough tokens to get them before they’re gone.[ad name=”article2″]
In their infinite wisdom, the Overwatch League recognized the desperation from players and announced that watching the All-Star matches on Wednesday May 16 and Thursday May 17 would earn players double the tokens.
Players usually earn tokens for every hour they watch the Overwatch League on Twitch with an account linked to Battle.net, and that number will double for All-Star Weekend.
With a full weekend of Overwatch League Stage 2 Playoffs the weekend before All-Stars gets going, players who have been saving up tokens just might have a chance of getting the All-Star skin they need.
After the conclusion of the final map of each match during live OWL broadcasts, a small percentage of players are awarded 100 tokens but this number will remain unchanged during the promotion.
OWL’s All-Star Weekend started during the Inaugural Season and will feature 2 days of matches between League talent as well as the Pacific and Atlantic All-Star squads.
The All-Star teams will face off in a match consisting of a variety of different Arcade modes chosen by fan vote and the highly-anticipated Widowmaker 1v1 matchups.
The new Lucio and Mercy skins for All-Stars 2019 are only available until May 22 and if they’re anything like last year’s Genji and Tracer skins, once they’re gone they’ll be gone for good.
