Hopefully, with Twitch's official streams, fans will be able to unlock more tokens just by watching the games.

First game of Overwatch League starts at 7 PM Eastern with the San Francisco Shock taking on the Los Angeles Valiant.

Thankfully, the final match of the night between Dallas Fuel and Seoul Dynasty was a lot more exciting.

Blizzard is giving away 100 League Tokens free for players who log in to their "Overwatch" account, whether on the PC, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.

The American video game publisher - maker of the massively successful competitive first-person shooter Overwatch, which had a player base of more than 35 million players as of last October - has made a decision to double down on the game's popularity by running a season-based competition similar to what one might find in traditional sports. Fans stayed throughout the day, the seats still full past 9 p.m. when Dallas and Seoul were still waging war in an early frontrunner for best Overwatch series of the year. You can peruse the Overwatch League's schedule here.

Fans that are interested in viewing the Overwatch League they should know that the first season of the league will be running until June, and will complete with playoffs in July.

The inaugural season of Activision Blizzard's (ATVI) Overwatch League kicked off on Wednesday, heralding a new era in eSports.

Each new skin you acquire will cost 100 League tokens and more tokens can be bought within the game.

Blizzard will still host streams on its own website, however. 312 skins have been introduced to the game, the largest batch in its history, allowing players to wear the "jersey" of their favorite team. You have the team you support, the players you like, and the rivals you desperately want to see them beat. 12 teams are involved in the competition.

The Overwatch community also will have new ways to join in the fun around the league. While video games are extremely popular and millions watch gaming online, it has thus far not drawn the attention from networks and advertisers that traditional live sports has.

Shortly after, Overwatch League will hold an All-Star Weekend.
