One thing I really hope we get is OWL loot boxes by watching streams.
Support your team. Get items.
Viewership will be massive if so.

Overwatch still suffers from low viewership numbers. The numbers on one of the potential biggest esport titles definitely need to improve in order for the organisations to make money off the venture. Giving out lootboxes to viewers will definitely help in improving the numbers on the stream. This is a common tactic used in Dota2, Lol and CSGO.
