OWL

[LIVE] Overwatch League 2020 Offseason Tracker

The third season of the Overwatch League (OWL) came to an end last October 10th, 2020. After that, every team could negotiate with whichever player and team they desired make a trade with. Since then several movements have occurred throughout the league. Teams will be able to continue negotiating for new players until at least January 4th, 2021. That day marks the deadline in which teams need to present a roster of “minimum seven players to the league“. However, it is still unknown the day in which OWL will impose a roster lock.
While waiting for the roster lock deadline, ESPR News will keep this article updated with all the trades that will continue to occur across teams during the offseason. In that manner, it will be easier to keep track of all the movements going around the league.

Recent Updates

  • November 30th – Seoul Dynasty announces the signing of former New York Excelsior players Taesung “Anamo” Jung and Jong-ryeol “Saebyeolbe” Park. Both players appear to be a good fit to the team as they not only provide experience and leadership, but also fill some of the whole that the Dynasty had on its roster. In this way Seoul Dynasty look to make another run to OWL’s final and claim the championship promised to their fans since season 1.
  • November 27th – Seoul Dynasty announce the release of Jin-mo “tobi” Yang. In this manner, the Dynasty have released or traded all of their former season 1 players. Tobi was the last member of the Contenders team Lunatic Hai that remained on Seoul.
  • November 25ht – Shanghai Dragons have traded with the Chengdu Hunters to acquire the support He “Molly” Chengzhi. This pickup is interesting at first glance as Dragons already have one of the best flex supports in the world on Min-chul “IZaYaKI” Kim. However, if the meta turns to be a double flex support one, this pick could give the Dragons a massive advantage in comparison to their rivals.
