Pink Mercy Twitch Drops FAQ

To complement the release of our limited-time Pink Mercy skin, we’ve teamed up with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Twitch to release a series of themed Twitch Drops! Between now and May 21, unlock an all-new Pink Mercy player icon and four Pink Mercy sprays simply by watching select streams on Twitch.

IMPORTANT: In order to earn Pink Mercy Twitch Drops, you need to link your Blizzard and Twitch accounts. Visit the Twitch Connections page to log in and complete the link now.


Q. How do I link my Blizzard and Twitch accounts?

A. Log in or create a Twitch account. Visit the Twitch connections page, find the Blizzard section, select your preferred gameplay region, and click Connect.

Before linking your accounts, check to see that you’re not logged into any other Blizzard accounts in the same browser, as this could cause complications. For the best results, we recommend completing the process in “private browsing” or “incognito” mode.

Q. How can I tell which Blizzard account is linked to my Twitch account?

A. You can see which Blizzard account is linked to your Twitch account on Twitch connections page.

Q. Do I need to do anything beyond linking my Blizzard and Twitch accounts to be eligible for Pink Mercy Twitch Drops?

A. Nope! When the criteria for a Twitch Drop has been met (for example, watching two cumulative hours of participating streams while logged into a Twitch account that is linked to your Blizzard account), you must simply be logged in to Twitch at the time.

IMPORTANT: Some browser plug-ins can block Twitch from registering your presence on the platform. To make sure you’re eligible for Pink Mercy Twitch Drops, we recommended that you temporarily disable your plug-ins when watching participating streams. Neither Blizzard nor Twitch can provide support for issues caused by incompatible browser plug-ins.

Q. Which streams are participating in the Pink Mercy Twitch Drops?

A. Please see list of participating streams below. Note that Pink Mercy Twitch Drops will only be active on these channels when streaming Overwatch during the promotional window (May 8 – May 21).


Q. How long will Pink Mercy Twitch Drops be available?

A. Pink Mercy Twitch Drops will be active on participating streams starting May 8 at 11:00 AM PT and will remain available through May 21 at 11:59 PM PT.

Q: How can I tell if I’m earning Twitch Drops?

A: If your preferred Blizzard account is linked to your preferred Twitch account, rest assured that your Overwatch viewership hours are being tracked! In-game rewards will be granted to accounts in batches.

Q. Can I watch multiple participating streams at the same time to earn Pink Mercy Twitch Drops more quickly?

A. No, Twitch Drops incentives can only be earned from viewing one stream at a time.

Please note that if you are watching multiple streams with or without an active Twitch Drops program, this may interfere with your ability to earn Twitch Drops at all.
