OWL rosters rumors

This post is a collection of official and unofficial rumors about the OWL rosters, so it could be completely wrong. But I find it interesting to think about potential rosters for the OWL teams, so I figured I would start this thread here as well.

I'd say KnOxXx is way better lucio than tank tbh.

Knoxxx's Winston is excellent, his Lucio is very good too.

Knoxxx also has a really good understanding of dive/triple dps comps so he'd be valuable for that POV. NV also love running that Rein/Winston comp so him and Cocco would be pretty scary in that regard - not to mention the benefit of possibly putting him on Lucio and letting Harry run wild on Soldier

Curious to see if Shanghai puts together an all star Chinese team and to see how they compete with the rest.

Miraculous Youngster + a few Chinese stars would be really nice. Maybe guxue for stronger main tank and Jason for better Genji?

I would say GC Busan probably since RunAway without Haksal (due to age restriction) just would not be the same. But it might be easier to negotiate with RunAway since I know Runner has been actively looking for an OWL sponsor, whereas GC Busan already has good financial support. GC Busan might just wait for the next season and try to get in with another Korean city spot (like Busan).

What happened to LW Blue Gambler? ArK was LW Red's Lucio not LW Blue's.

He left the team after season 3 due to health issues. I heard he was offered a coaching position, but I don't think he is coaching any team currently.

Odd, where is Shadowburn in all of this? He has phenomenal projectile play, by that i mean his Pharah and Genji, his Doomfist is good, Zarya is solid, and he has one of the biggest brand's in OW, if im not mistaken, SDB got more votes for the Condenders Showmatch then Taimou Seagull and EFFECT, it's just hard for me to believe he hasn't been rumored in anything so far. Also, if we think all these leaks are true as well as that the LA 2 roster consists of players they are following on twitter. Heres the post: https://www.over.gg/6204/owl-rosters-rumors

So, basically, if all of these rumors are true, along with the LA 2 one, and if Shanghai picks up a chinese team and Philly get GC Busan + Carpe, which i can see happening because of the hero pools of GC Busan not really having a genji (that i've seen) and Carpe being great on it when he was on his older team with bunny (can't remember name, they disbanded tho, and vsed Envy a few times) then the only team that has announced they have a member yet to be announced is SF, now, what are they lacking? A Genji and Pharah player, a stand out doomfist, and a popular and well known player? Well it just so happens that there's a person who fits that description, and doesn't have an OWL team, and hasn't announced he's looking for one. Hmm... Its someone who is also from Russia who may have visa problems like Tonic, which may be a reason for a delay in announcement... Just food for thought...

Next day: SF "everyone welcome San Fran Dafran"

Me: b...b...b...but but but...

No, in all seriousness SDB and Sinnatra combo would be sick to watch.

Brad has confirmed they were close to adding a 9th play to SF

Obviously A LOT of very talented players are missing from this list, and it doesn't seem like there are that many spots left.

If these rumors are true,
Where is

  • LiNkzr?
    Snillo?
    Davin?
    ChrisTFer?
    Tonic?
    fragi?
    FCTFCTN?
    SPACE?
    Smex?
    Zappis?
    neptuNo?
    BigGOOse?
    Boombox?
    Greyy?
    Shaz?

It seems like a lot of talented players from EU region are missing. Maybe OWL teams focused on players from NA region first since they wanted players with larger fan base in NA?
Seriously, I don't see anyone from Gigantti, 123, C9 EU, Singularity, or Gamers Origin. I can see Gigantii sticking with the current team and trying to enter next season as they already have a main sponsor, but I don't know what is happening with the other teams. Also, for the NA side, I don't think I see anyone from FaZe (except for the speculation about Carpe), which is odd.
I feel like a team made from these missing players would be stronger than most of the OWL teams.

Think it's becoming more and more apparent that OWL season 1 will be heavily biased towards NA and KR players, with a scattering of EU in some teams. It's a massive shame as you could easily name a better EU player for every NA one on a team, but most franchises outside of the KR teams are focusing on building NA rosters. I'm expecting that a lot of the EU Contenders season 2 teams will be a lot better than some of the teams we're likely to see in OWL, and hopefully for season 2 of OWL there will be a lot more EU spots.

It was confirmed that Curious will no longer play Overwatch. He will find a new carrier as a professional PUBG player. So you can erase his name in the London roster.
