Overwatch League trade rumors are abound this week as more rumors surface among teams looking to switch things up. There have been reports about the Dallas Fuel making some of the biggest changes to their roster in the coming weeks. Here is a breakdown of things we have heard.



According to reports from Slasher over at ESPN. There is a lot going on behind the scenes in the league. If these rumors are true, well then we could see completely different teams as early as Stage Three.


The big one comes out of Dallas Fuel. After the release of xQc, it seems like Dallas is not finished with their changes. Rumor is that Cocco and Taimou may be on the trading block for Dallas. However, a recent report surfaced last night that new tank OGE is being looked into for boosting. If that is the case he could face suspension, which would leave Dallas without their latest signing for a while.

The other approach that is changing is having a lot more players on the rosters. It seems like more teams are going for the twelve man rosters mid-season to augment their internal scrims and build out a stronger approach. As much as this may benefit a team, no one likes sitting the bench. Dallas still has top players like Seagull who have barely played a map in Stage Two. There is a lot of debate over the team with a massive and passionate fan base. We just have to wait and see how this all playes out.


We will just have to wait and see how many of these trades come true. For now the Overwatch League’s attempt to add stability to esports has not reached its goal of stability. It seems like for many players they are still operating in a state of uncertainty. For now it seems like the expectations on Dallas were so high the team is in the middle of a giant re-org. Hopefully more news is officially announced soon and the team can right the ship accordingly.
