With gamers from around the world, participating in different levels as teams; there has been some difficulty with identifying team members.
A new currency called "League Tokens" will be included in Overwatch to make Overwatch League purchases, and it will not be used for anything else in the game. Players can represent their favorite team by wearing the uniform skin in the game. He said that the designers of the game had team jerseys in mind when they designed the concept. It's one of the first esports leagues to introduce location-based teams in the same vein as traditional sports, and Overwatch players will soon be able to show their support for their hometown with special skins.
Nanzer also announced that they have developed a new token system for the game "to ensure that the correct amounts from your League-related purchases go towards the teams". Today, Overwatch League commissioner Nate Nanzer confirmed that the answer is yes: "Home team uniforms" for all OWL teams will be available for purchase early next year.
Take note that the Overwatch League tokens will be only used to buy in-game content for the Overwatch League.
Blizzard revealed that the fans of the Overwatch League teams will be able to buy the team skins, but not in the same manner as how all other Overwatch skins are purchased.
The video does not explain how players can earn more of the currency, or if it is simply a premium currency that is bought with real money.
