The first team from the newly added Chinese bunch will be the Guangzhou Charge. Rumoured to boast a mostly Korean roster they’ll be charged with reclaiming the Chinese franchise honour in the Overwatch League in 2019.
Will it be a good season for team GZ, or will it end like for the Dragons, with a GG EZ.
Good – Two things I like in Guangzhou’s branding, first is the teal colour which is coincidentally my also my favourite and even though it is a shade of the overused blue it is different enough to appear fresh. Another thing I love is how they’ve made everyone’s life easier by using the catchy Team GZ name instead of making everyone butcher the pronunciation of their city name.

Next in line, is the Chengdu Hunters.
