I don’t know. Contenders advertising, in my opinion, was poor.
I was not aware that Contenders offered skins.
When I was interested, someone mentioned that OWL tokens cannot be earned while watching Contenders.
Zman is known to troll around here. Let me help you out.
This is not a problem with earning the skins themselves, just a web scripting issue that is preventing your name from displaying properly. If you see that, you are logged into OverwatchLeague.com.
Did you try watching on YouTube.com and click the rewards link below the video player. That was introduced this month and has been working perfectly. Even then the direct OverwatchLeague.com website embedded player has been working this month.
Very few players have very minimal problems this month since the direct YouTube rewards integration for Contenders. I even checked with the Overwatch Path To Pro team and they reported no known issues sort of one Korean-Language broadcast at the start of the month, which even that was resolved.
Maybe, but most Contenders’ broadcasts are only about 2 to 3 hours long at most. Its important that if you want to earn the skins that you need to be actively watching all available broadcasts from the start of each monthly rotation. Furthermore, any VODs do not count. Only live broadcasts.
Note, if you just finished watching the Korea-region broadcast from this morning
It is planned sometime in the distant future to rotate through all of the heroes again, but for now, there is nothing more we can do since there are no more August broadcasts remaining this month. In the meantime, do make sure you have worked through my troubleshooting guide here that can help resolve common problems that can prevent users from earning Overwatch League or Contenders livestream drops:
This is where I always watch. I never had trouble with getting skins from contenders so far.
Yeah, live ones (green dot, and no “length” of the video since it’s live.) I actively watched some. I should be over 5hours. This is why I thought that I am not logged in (because if I tried anything from going to my profile or logging out,I got error 404).
