We’re teaming up with Master Overwatch

Plays.tv loves Master Overwatch

Master Overwatch is the place to go for in-depth Overwatch stats. Be it yours, your teammates, your mentors or rivals, you can get the data you need to improve your skills.

We’ve partnered with Master Overwatch so your stats pages will populate with your Overwatch videos. Your favorite plays and statistics are now all in one place for easy analysis.

If you have your Overwatch account connected in the desktop app, your Overwatch videos can now be automatically added to your stats page on Master Overwatch. Simply connect your Plays.tv account on Master Overwatch and in your settings there, select the following:

MOW Plays.tv Connect

Don’t worry, only public videos will be instantly shared. On your profile page, you will have a link to your Master Overwatch stats. It’s an easy way to show off, as well as improve and learn.

  • New status bar overlay helps you keep track of your recording time and bookmark hotkey (you can also turn it off for that minimalist look).
  • Push-to-Talk is in! Choose when people hear your lovely voice.

For more details on those additions and more, let’s dive in.
