Overwatch League’s 2022 season wrapped up initially of November, with the playoffs turning into the second most-watched occasion of its historical past in line with Esports Charts, solely outmatched by the League’s inaugural season in 2018. 

Two main elements performed into that: the discharge of Overwatch 2—which makes this the primary OWL to happen within the sequel—and the truth that Blizzard actually wished you to look at it. The developer was providing bundles of OWL tokens and skins for individuals who tuned in. Or at the least, it was purported to. Regardless of viewers watching over 30 hours of video games in October and November, some have acquired nothing whereas others have solely been given partial rewards, and there appears to be no stable resolution in sight.

Overwatch League acknowledged the issue again in mid-November, saying that it was working to push out rewards to those that’d tuned in and hadn’t acquired the eligible rewards. However a Reddit thread posted yesterday by u/Hohoho-you that has over 4,400 upvotes appears to counsel that anybody who hasn’t acquired the rewards by now will not be getting them. The put up incorporates a screenshot from Blizzard help, who instructed u/Hohoho-you “When you nonetheless have not bought the cosmetics it implies that you weren’t eligible. Buyer Assist is just not capable of confirm eligibility for OWL drops and can’t help with this difficulty.” The poster claims he watched over 35 hours of Overwatch League video games and waited two weeks for a response from Blizzard help.

The feedback on the Reddit put up are full of folks caught in an analogous state of affairs. Some have acquired zero rewards in any respect, whereas others have solely acquired a handful of the early rewards regardless of watching tens of hours of eligible video games. Whereas some feedback stated that they had acquired related responses from help, one remark claimed that they had been instructed that Blizzard was at present conscious and dealing on an answer.

There is a good probability that this entire factor could also be a irritating case of miscommunication between Blizzard buyer help and the Overwatch 2 group itself. I’ve contacted Blizzard to see what the state of affairs is and I will update if I get a response. Regardless, it is comprehensible gamers are pissed off that, virtually a month after the season, rewards nonetheless have not been processed appropriately.
