After months of what many would call irrelevancy, Gale Force eSports revealed a brand new roster with tried-and-tested stars to bring the team to the forefront of American Overwatch. The only old player on the roster is Austin "Muma" Wilmot, while coach wgb remains alongside him as well.
We are ready to unveil our new #GFEOW roster!
Please give a warm #GFE welcome to our new players!5 April 2017
Joining the pair are ex-TF2 stars clockwork and Shrugger, who aim to keep up with the wealth of top DPS lineups in North America. Additionally joining are Boink and Bani—and no, I did not misspell b4nny. While untraditional, Gale Force has found reasonable success using coach wgb as a player as well, and management seems to believe that this formula is one that can work for now. However, he is simply filling the role until the team can find another Lucio player.
The team went 1-4 and finished 5th in Group A in the Overwatch PIT Championship.
As of now, the roster is as follows:
- Matthew "clockwork" Dias (DPS)
- Canaan "Shrugger" Carman (Flex)
- Daniel "Boink" Pence (Flex)
- Austin "Muma" Wilmot (Tank)
- Chris "Bani" Benell (Support)
- Wolgang "wgb" Braun (Support/Coach)
