The Overwatch League will finally return in a couple of weeks, but there’s plenty more high-level Overwatch esports to watch right now. The 2021 Overwatch Contenders tier-two season is underway in several regions, and you can claim in-game skins just by watching matches.
If you watch for seven hours during April, you can claim Echo home and away skins. Another eight hours and a pair of fresh looks for Brigitte is all yours. You can earn them by watching live matches on the Contenders website. Here’s the schedule. You need to be logged in to your Blizzard account to earn the rewards.
If you’re a long-time Overwatch League viewer, you’ll surely recognize some of the players as several former OWL pros compete in Contenders. You might get an early look at some future OWL stars as well.
