FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. How do I link my Blizzard and Twitch accounts?
Before linking your accounts, check to see that you’re not logged into any other Blizzard accounts in the same browser, as this could cause complications. For the best results, complete the process in "private browsing" or "incognito" mode.
Q. I’m a Twitch broadcaster. Do I also need to link my Blizzard and Twitch accounts to participate in SC20 Twitch Drops?
A. Yes. In order for your Twitch channel to eligible to distribute SC20 Twitch Drops, it must be linked to a Blizzard account. You must also make sure you’re opted in to Twitch Drops in your dashboard settings.
Q. How can I tell which Blizzard account is linked to my Twitch account?
A. You can see which Blizzard account is linked to your Twitch account on Twitch connections page.
Q. Do I need to do anything beyond linking my Blizzard and Twitch accounts to be eligible for SC20 Twitch Drops?
A. When the criteria for an SC20 Twitch Drop has been met (for example, watching two cumulative hours of StarCraft, StarCraft: Remastered, or StarCraft II streams while logged into a Twitch account that is linked to your Blizzard account), you must simply be logged in to Twitch at the time. For random SC20 Twitch drops, you must also be watching at the time the drop occurs.
IMPORTANT: Some browser plug-ins can block Twitch from registering your presence on the platform. To make sure you're eligible for SC20 Twitch Drops, we recommended that you temporarily disable your plug-ins when watching participating streams. Neither Blizzard nor Twitch can provide support for issues caused by incompatible browser plug-ins.
Q. How can I tell if I’ve received an SC20 Twitch Drop?
A. If you receive an SC20 Twitch Drop, you will receive a notification on Twitch indicating which drop you’ve earned. The item (or items) will then be available in-game in the preferred gameplay region you selected when linking your Blizzard and Twitch accounts.
Q. Are there any restrictions on who can receive an SC20 Twitch Drop?
A. Yes. Some additional terms and conditions apply. Click here to learn more.
