ROX Tigers Just Signed Its First Overwatch Team

By   /   Jan 13, 2017

Famed South Korean esports organization ROX Tigers is taking its first professional steps into the competitive Overwatch scene.

Known for its valuable contributions in the League of Legends community, ROX Tigers is expanding its reach over to Blizzard’s team-based vibrant shooter. The entire roster of MotionDive will now be competing under the ROX Orcas banner, comprising the following players:

  • Cho “Aloha” Kyung-hoon
  • Kang “Try” Tae-wook
  • Cha “Le1gend” Kwang-ho
  • Chung “Melee” Chang-gyoon
  • Kim “Daemin” Dae-min
  • Cho “Guardian” Joon-hwan

An official announcement made on Facebook reminded fans of the unique and aggressive gameplay that the ROX brand has come to be known for through the years of competitive League of Legends. The same traits were prioritized by the management when picking up its first-ever Overwatch squad.

“We want to become a team that touches the hearts of fans with our aggressive and thrilling play,” said player and coach Aloha. “The name ROX is heavy, but I want to be remembered as a historic team that can measure up to the name of the Tigers. I would like to add to the ROX reputation and become the best team.”

Many esports organizations have begun entering the Overwatch circles. Most recently, North American Team SoloMid picked up Kungarna to play under its brand this year. Prior to that, Counter Logic Gaming added The 1 Percent to its family of teams.

Overwatch is yet to celebrate its first anniversary but has already taken the world by storm. It features an impressive number of players and the competitive division is steadily growing. With Blizzard’s plan to initiate an official Overwatch League this year, we’re likely to see more and more organizations fall in line to be part of that.
