Stage 1 of the Overwatch League starts on Thurdsay January 11th.

Existing Razer Phone users will also benefit from the Netflix and Razer partnership with an over-the-air update later this month. That said, Razer's intent is to provide "enhanced productivity and differentiated gaming experiences" with Project Linda .
Anyone hoping to get their hands on a League skin for their favorite team and character will be able to do so without actually buying any League tokens.
The Overwatch League is a big bet for Blizzard/Activision, which has gone all-in to promote and support the league for its newest and fastest growing title (that fastest growing medal may be a function of the game's novelty, or a function of the incredible spread of gaming since the launch of Overwatch in 2014 and the company's last completely new game launch ... in the 1990s). Any Overwatch player that logs in between now and February 13 will be gifted with 100 League Tokens, which is just enough to buy one League skin.
But the lack of clarity was also a cause for some concern among Overwatch fans, who have been left uncertain as to how they'd be able to watch the matches.
However, the update will also include a new "Overwatch League eSports tab", which gives fans access to all the latest action and info from the games Esports scene.
