You can now link your Steam account to Twitch and receive item drops as you watch tournaments.

You can get tournament item drops while watching Twitch streams as long as you own the ticket for that tournament, Valve said on the Dota 2 blog.

"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," Valve said.

"We hope to expand on the features available via this system and would love to hear what you think we should work on next."

The feature comes a month ahead of The International, the Valve organised Dota 2 championship that takes place in Seattle.
