Overwatch League has added three new Chinese teams during the expansion. Each has their own unique storyline going into this season. The Chinese region has an increased global attraction after the success of their 2018 World Cup team as well as the powerful rosters within their Contenders region. Here are two things each team should look for this upcoming season.

In the weeks leading up to the start of Overwatch League’s second season, we’ll be introducing you to each team and updating you on their rosters, staff, and history.
The Shanghai Dragons have had it rough. A grand total of zero wins to forty losses in the inaugural season of Overwatch League solidified them as the worst team in the league. The off season was marked by a major restructure of the team: new coaches, new management, almost an entirely new roster from some of Contenders’ finest. And with nothing to lose, the Dragons are ready to take their crown.
It’s December 31st, the year is over, and I’m sitting here at the computer, slightly hungover, tore up from the floor up, trying to process it all. My latest self-assignment for Minority Report was a year-end article that summed up the year on a positive note, as someone pointed out to me that my last few pieces have been pretty tonally negative.

The off-season is drawing to a close. The season approaches. That light blue and orange on the horizon? That’s the London Spitfire leading the charge. Champions of the Inaugural season. There is no reason to think the Spitfire won’t come back with the same fire and adaptability that they possessed last year; and yet, do they have new contenders for the title?
Will the season start with the familiar names out on top: Valiant, NYXL, Fusion, even Seoul? Or will the second season see the rise of new names? The Vancouver RunAway…er I mean Canucks…er, sorry the colours, I mean Titans, perhaps. Could the blue and orange be replaced by a wave of green and…a different blue?
These are OverwatchScore’s “Way Too Early” power rankings (with some adjustment by me, RogueBludger).
It’s that time of year again: The off-season. For Overwatch League fans, it’s hard to wait until February to finally see our favorite team in action. We’ve kept track of the player signings and all the trades. We’ve been following the newly announced teams on Twitter. But it’s still hard to be patient.
So let’s use Christmas (and Hanukkah – although that’s already passed) as a way to help lift everyone’s spirits! Get your friends, significant other, family and co-workers pumped for Season 2 by giving them some sweet Overwatch-themed gifts this season.
Finally, after months of waiting, the first Watchpoint of Season 2 aired — and provided the much anticipated opening week schedule. There were some big changes that will be implemented in season 2 in the hopes of providing a much more dynamic year and taking into consideration the players’ needs.
First, the eight expansion teams were formally introduced. In the Atlantic Division, the Atlanta Reign, Paris Eternal, Toronto Defiant, and Washington Justice were added, along with the Chengdu Hunters, Guangzhou Charge, Hangzhou Spark, and Vancouver Titans for the Pacific Division.
Some true variation from the ever-present GOATS came up this week. Veteran teams saw a rattling by some rookies, but all in all, the status quo didn’t get mixed up too much. We’re beyond halfway through Contenders Australia now, so while we might have a strong idea of the leaders going into playoffs (Sydney and Melbourne, that means you), it’s not yet too late for an upset for other qualifying teams.
The worst-kept secret of the first Overwatch League offseason has finally been revealed.
The Vancouver Titans were unveiled as the seventh of the eight new OWL teams during Saturday’s Vancouver Canucks hockey game. The team is owned by Canucks Sports & Entertainment, and is co-managed in partnership with Canadian esports veterans Luminosity Gaming. The team’s blue and green color scheme echoes that of their sister NHL team and its AHL counterpart.
Okay, just to be clear, I am the hypewoman for the Los Angeles Valiant, but like my mama always said, “Game recognize game.”
So, as I am casually scrolling the hell that is Twitter and talking to my friends, Suddenly, I read this bombshell of a tweet:
