Blizzard launching Overwatch League tokens for skins
Dec 05 2017 by Michele Stevens
With gamers from around the world, participating in different levels as teams; there has been some difficulty with identifying team members.
To ensure that profits go to the teams, Overwatch will be implementing a "League Token" currency. Players can represent their favorite team by wearing the uniform skin in the game.
The uniform skins are expected to be introduced in early 2018, likely around the time when Overwatch League regular-season play starts January 10.
"Just like with traditional sports jerseys, purchasing Overwatch League skins will provide monetary support for teams in the league, and they're also a great way to show off your team pride in the game", league commissioner Nate Nanzer said in the announcement video.

Nanzer didn't reveal anything about token pricing, or whether they'll be available to earn in the game.
Blizzard will be introducing all 12 Overwatch League in-game uniforms as purchasable skins that will directly support the inaugural season teams.
To make Overwatch matches easier to follow for viewers, Blizzard's designers have created color-based skins for use in the game. Nanzer said that Blizzard chose to implement this system "to ensure that the correct amounts from your League-related purchases go towards the teams". If you log into Overwatch within the first month of the League kicking off you'll be given enough tokens to buy a skin, but beyond that you'll have to pay.
