Interview with Boston’s Chris “HuK” Loranger

The Interview

This past week we sat down with Chris “HuK” Loranger from the Boston franchise to talk about the Overwatch League. The Kraft Group is one of the big names in the league and it is great to see how HuK is planning to build out the team.

  1. In terms of recruiting, you are still in the middle of the player signing window. How have things been going and have they matched your strategies?

HuK: It’s going well. I don’t think I could ever say anything differently. It’s been a very thorough process for us. We have a system where we want to be very diligent with who we sign, because unlike esports contracts which are a little more at will, Overwatch League contracts are iron clad more or less where if you sign a player, you “sign” a player and they are on your team for good and you have to pay that salary. From our standpoint, we’re looking for high skilled, humble, coach-able individuals. We think that is going to give us longevity and strength going into the first season and beyond. I think having those characteristics as a player is the most important. Especially if you look at Contenders and APEX results, where a lot of the teams who were really good in Season 0 are now struggling in Season 1.
