League Tokens is a currency that you can use to buy various skins in Overwatch, this is only available during Overwatch League so it is a good time to not lose this chance!
You need to link your Youtube or Twitch account with your Battle.net account so the minutes you watch are counted, otherwise, you won't be getting anything,.
Connect your Twitch.tv: https://www.twitch.tv/settings/connections
Connect your Youtube account: https://www.youtube.com/account_sharing
Choose Battle.net and link the accounts, after that, the games you watch will start to give you tokens, you get the tokens every hour watched, and it doesn't have to be consecutive, you can watch a bit now and a bit later, and when this time sums up to one hour you'll get tokens.
Some extensions can make you unable to get the rewards, it is recommended to disable extensions that disable tracking and maybe ad-blocks, if you use Mozilla Firefox you may also want to disable the tracking protection on the left of the address bar, by clicking on the shield icon.
It is not sure which kind of extensions make the rewards not work, so you can give it a try even if you like to use some of them.
Another related issue is that notifications of rewards when you watch from Youtube may not appear, but don't worry, your rewards still will be received in-game. It is also worth noticing that it can take up to 48 hours for League Tokens to be delivered.
