Eagle Gaming, a French esports company and television station, has entered Overwatch with an all-French roster made up of former members of Rogue, GamersOrigin, and IceblockGG.

KnOxXx and NiCOgdh will be the two most well-known players on the team, each previously playing for Rogue and the French World Cup team. KnOxXx will likely remain in the tank role that he played in with Rogue following the addition of NiCO. NiCO has been listed strictly as a DPS in the team's announcement tweet, likely freeing him from the shackles of D.Va duty that he was burdened with when Rogue strayed from their trademark triple DPS compositions.
Three players from GamersOrigin will play for the team, possibly lending a hand in the squad's disbandment last month. The support pair of HyP and PiPou anchor the team's backline, while Leaf may end up shifting his role somewhat. Whilst Leaf became known for his DPS play, particularly on Doomfist, in Contenders Season One 2017, he is listed in Eagle Gaming's announcement tweet as the team's flex.
The organization will also be fielding a player and coach from Iceblock in their lineup. Kryw, who is most known for his flex play with Misfits, is expected to play DPS as he did for Iceblock. Joining him will be his former coach, moonL.
Notably absent from the roster is well respected former Rogue DPS aKm, leading to speculation that he is set to join another Contenders team.
