You'll have to link your Blizzard and Twitch accounts as part of this new system being trialed in Contenders right now.

If you weren't aware, the Overwatch Contenders system is the division below the Overwatch League that allows new and upcoming talent to shine, and now the official website for Contenders has revealed a new chat moderation program that they're trialing that'll make users link their Blizzard and Twitch accounts to take part in Twitch chats.

It's already come into effect as of December 28, and will finish on January 12, running during the Season 3 quarter-final matches in all regions. After this time Blizzard will assess how it worked, and take it from there.

Do you think this is a good idea? After all, Blizzard writes that "we're always testing out new ways to improve the viewer experience for the Overwatch Path to Pro ecosystem."
