The Overwatch League welcomes Atlanta Reign and Toronto Defiant

BlizzCon hype now bleeds into the slow release of future content for their games, cheers and tears over some announcements but if there’s one title that is undeniably kicking goals it’s Overwatch. 

With the growth of the Overwatch League comes an exciting announcement. Eight new teams have been added to the Overwatch League, with lots of mystery and speculation of team names and colours.

Overwatch League Teams

It is my distinct privilege to reveal to you, Atlanta Reign who will be competing in the Atlantic division, you can follow them to catch all the announcements on Twitter, Instagram & Facebook.

But their northern cousins, Toronto Defiant will be looking to stamp their claim on the Atlantic division as well. You can keep up to date with the Defiant on Twitter & Instagram.

Both sides will be looking to establish themselves early in the division, against formidable opponents like New York Excelsior, London Spitfire and Boston Uprising. It’s going to be a tough fight to the top for the new squads, and we are eager to see the announcements for the remaining six squads yet to announce their team names.

If you’re like me and live for esports news, you can follow the links catch up with the official press releases for Atlanta & Toronto.

And remember season 2 of the Overwatch League starts February 15, so book in that sick leave and reserve a table at GGEZ because this season is shaping up to be a fierce one.

I believe fantasy sports teams is just DnD for the guys who made fun of kids who like DnD, but that doesn't stop me from participating in either hobbies. Unashamed Blizzard & Wizards of the Coast fanboy, if you got a problem with that you best roll initiative punk!
