Maybe you’ve heard, but in case you haven’t, Heroes of the Storm has a big huge tournament this weekend! While most of you probably won’t be going, you can watch from home on twitch.tv.
Blizzard is offering a rad portrait of a stormwatcher if you link your battle.net account to twitch during the tournament.
HOW TO LINK YOUR ACCOUNTS
- Log in to your account on Twitch.
- Navigate to the Settings menu by clicking your account name in the top-right corner of the home screen.
- Click on the Connections tab.
- Follow the instructions after selecting a region and clicking Connect next to Battle.net.
Do I need to keep my accounts linked to receive the portrait?
In order to make sure we’re able to properly grant the portrait award, please make sure you leave the accounts linked until the portrait has been awarded to your Battle.net account. We hope to offer additional promotions using this technology in the future, so we recommend leaving the account link in place if you’re interested in participating.
If I watch another region’s championship and have my account linked, will I receive the reward in my home region?
Yes, watching the Americas, Korea, Europe, or Taiwan championships on Twitch will grant you the in-game portrait in all regions.
If I watch the event on a mobile device will I receive the portrait?
Yes, as long as you are logged in to Twitch and your accounts are linked while you watch the event, you will be eligible for the portrait reward.
Will other Blizzard games offer similar promotions?
The Heroes of the Storm “Storm Watcher” portrait is the only active promotion currently available. We’re considering rolling out similar promotions for our other games, but we don’t have any additional details to share at this time.
