The Paris Overwatch League team announced their entire roster for the team’s debut league debut.

Paris is the first of the expansion teams to reveal their full line-up of players for the franchise’s inaugural season. The team opted for a full western roster, and is the second team to be based in Europe along with the London Spitfire.

The full roster includes:

  • Terrence “SoOn” Tarlier – DPS
  • George “ShaDowBurn” Gushcha – DPS
  • Nicolas “NiCO” Moret – DPS
  • Karol “Danye” Szcześniak – DPS
  • Damien “HyP” Souville – Support
  • Harrison “Kruise” Pond – Support
  • Benjamin “BenBest” Dieulafait – Main Tank
  • Finnbjörn “Finnsi” Jónasson – Flex Tank
  • Roni “LjCloudy” Tihonen – Main Tank

The most notable of the additions are SoOn, formerly of the Los Angeles Valiant, and ShaDowBurn, formerly of the Philadelphia Fusion. With ShaDowBurn on his signature hero Genji and SoOn on Tracer, the pair brings high hopes for victory to Paris.

Paris brought on only one other player with experience in the Overwatch League in flex tank Finnsi, who spent most of the first season sitting on the bench for the Valiant. The rest of the roster comes from Contenders league teams, primarily from Europe.

While Paris has still not announced a name or branding, fellow expansion team Atlanta has announce theirs. With red, light grey, and charcoal colors, the Atlanta-based team revealed their name: Atlanta Reign.

Pairs has also announced that they’ve brought on assistant coach Kyky, who previously coached the Dallas Fuel and Houston Outlaws.

No players have yet been announced for Atlanta, but they are the first of the new season’s expansion teams to unveil their branding.
