Battle.net and Twitch Integration

Recommended Posts

13627-battlenet-and-twitch-integration.j

 

Official Battle.net integration has arrived on Twitch.tv! A simple process allows you to hook your Twitch.tv account up to your Battle.net account for a promotional portrait, with further promotions and details potentially to come in the future.

 

The process is quick and painless, and will hopefully drive higher viewership of this weekend's Americas Championship for the Heroes of the Storm Road to BlizzCon. A full explanation is included here:

 

Blizzard Icon Introducing Battle.net and Twitch Integration

 

Starting September 17, Twitch and Blizzard are teaming up to reward those who not only love to play Heroes of the Storm, but watch it, too!

 

SECURE YOUR PORTRAIT

 

For a limited time, anyone who watches a Heroes of the Storm regional championship while logged into Twitch with a linked Battle.net account will receive a special “Storm Watcher” portrait in Heroes of the Storm.

Your first opportunity to secure this portrait is quickly approaching. Tune in to the Americas Championship on September 19 and 20, and you’ll be among the first to receive the new portrait. After watching the Americas or other regional championship events, the portrait will be awarded to qualifying players starting in October, when it will appear in your in-game portrait collection.

 

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.

Click Here to go straight to the Twitch.tv settings page!

 

BEFORE YOU ASK...

 

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.

 

 

Visit HeroesoftheStorm.com/eSports to learn more about the Americas Championship and our other regional championship events!

 

Thoughts on this promotion? What other uses could Battle.net integration on Twitch offer down the road?

 

Blizzard and Twitch are now offering Battle.net integration in to Twitch, and the first promotion is a limited-time Heroes of the Storm portrait tied to the regional championships on the Road to BlizzCon.
