Valve also enabled account linking for the upcoming MLG Major Columbus 2016 allowing viewers to link their Steam accounts with Twitch or MLG accounts. By doing so, they will be eligible to receive souvenir drops.

While you’re watching MLG Columbus 2016 next week, you’ll have a chance to receive a souvenir package commemorating the event. Each souvenir features a weapon from the collection of the map being played, golden stickers of the teams who were playing, and a golden signature of the MVP from the round where the souvenir dropped.

To be eligible for a souvenir package, all you have to do is watch the event. If you’re watching in GOTV or in the main menu, you’ll automatically be eligible for souvenirs. If you’re watching on an official Twitch or MLG stream, make sure you link your Steam account!
