    Why would you give away something for watching streamers...would you not rather have people playing your game instead of watching it?

    This new generation of kids confuses me like in the south park episode.

    We old coots can just:

    1. Turn on Twitch
    2. Log in
    3. Find approved channel
    4. Mute sound
    5. Minimize window for hours
    6. Open a new window for regular surfing

    LOL so very true.  I have a hard time watching streams personally as I find most of the streamers annoying and vile overall.  I will occasionally if something is new and want to see it but I likely have 6 hours on twitch in 12 months.

    This is what classifies as a "Challenge" now? Lazy way to increase viewers on the game in a time where OW is under a lot of pressure.

    I love the game, but sadly it seems it has fallen on hard times as rest of Blizzard. They are trying everything possible to rake up as much attention and money without actually putting additional work.

    All Blizz games seem to have reduced teams now, and probably not only that but also a giant gun on their heads - "make more money - or"

    "LGBTwatch" meaning...you're offended at Soldier 76? I mean...he's not the first canonically gay character in OW. Did you miss Tracer over 2 years ago? 

    Blizzard doesn't put this "in your face" and doesn't make it a big issue or the centerpiece of his character. What's to be offended by? Kinda flies in the face of using it as a way to make money, not to mention that it doesn't change gameplay one bit.

    The event looks fun, IMO, and I'll be playing. :)

    It's "viewership" for 5 sprays. The rest is earned in-game on a special map / event. 

    I don't care about sprays so Twitch viewing is a pass for me. I'll play instead to earn the 3 things in game. Pretty sure the vast majority of OW fans will do the same so not sure how it'll increase viewers.

    That said, I hope they keep adding story-based content like this. Maybe it's stuff like that that's paving the way to Overwatch 2. :D

    The timing of the emphasis put on Soldier's 76 sexual preferences were suspiciously close to the blunder on the OW professional league.

    Both the above are off topic.
