The Boston Uprising took on a stacked NYXL squad and performed well. Despite losing the match Boston showed more promise than expected silencing most of their critics. Our analyst Zerk has the breakdown.
Overwatchscore Staff Writer Garrett “Mash” Fuller got together with Boston Uprising Coach Da-hee “Crusty” Park to dig into the details around his thoughts on the Overwatch League, building the Uprising roster, and his response to the community opinion that Boston is one of the weakest teams in the league.
Boston Uprising roster is revealed! Here is the starting team for Boston’s Overwatch League franchise. Chris “HuK” Loranger takes the reins with a strong philosophy on team building and unity. Boston announced their logo and branding yesterday and now we get to see who is playing:
While we’ve all been waiting for the Los Angeles Valiant Roster Announcements the Boston Overwatch League team has stolen the spotlight. As the fifth team to announce their branding we’re still less than halfway to knowing all of the teams’ names and branding. Without further adieu, here is what we know about the Boston Uprising…
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.
- 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.
