Team Summary 

The Atlanta Reign have built a multi-national team with little name recognition – aside from a certain DPS – and are looking to make a grand entrance in OWL Season 2. The team is comprised of both South Korean players, many from Contenders team Element Mystic, and EU-based players. Highlights include Team Germany’s flex support Kodak and former Team Gigantti member Masaa. However, all eyes will be on infamous streamer and DPS Dafran to see how he handles the public spotlight.
