Valve announced earlier today on their DOTA 2 blog, that users of their Steam application will now be able to link their accounts to Twitch directly, allowing users to receive drops whilst watching online stream from tournaments.
Valve says the following about the introduction on their blog:
“This week, thanks to our friends over at Twitch, you can now link your Steam account to their service. This link makes you eligible for tournament item drops while watching Twitch streams as long you own the ticket for that tournament.”
“We realize that people have different reasons why they prefer to watch in game or via streams and wanted to bridge the gap of features they were missing out on by choosing the service that works for them the most,”
