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. Earlier this year we reported on Blizzard's signing with two major U.S. sporting brands, the New England Patriots and the Miami dolphins, in order to promote the Overwatch League. With gamers from around the world, participating in different levels as teams; there has been some difficulty with identifying team members. Blizzard has announced that preseason play for the League kicks off tomorrow for Europe, as Overwatch League teams are able to take the stage for the first time at the Blizzard Arena in Los Angeles. Players will then be able to use those skins when they play, as a way of showing support for their favorite Overwatch League club. That said, they will still be coming to the regular season in January. In the video below, Overwatch League Commissioner Nate Nanzer compares it to buying a jersey for your favourite team in any other sport - it shows your support, but it also gives money directly to your team of choice.

The Overwatch League's Opening Day isn't for another five weeks, but that doesn't mean teams aren't prepping for play. The company says the decision was made so that the profits from purchases can be properly split between the developer and each of the league's teams. These tokens will only be used for in-game content.
