The team is always just shy of the Championship trophy being almost always eliminated in semifinals by the would-be champions. But whilst some candles shine bright and fade quickly, Excelsior shines eternally as they have shown unparalleled consistency unmatched by any other Overwatch League squad.
The team further reinforced their superior roster with Haksal for the season. Their first showing at the season 1 of APEX left a lot to be desired, as the lineup crumbled in the group stage.
Almost a year later this reformed squad finally won the Overwatch Contenders Korea Season 2 and achieved the recognition that was long overdue.
Following this victory, the entire roster was shipped off to the Vancouver Titans, and RunAway was once again back to rebuilding their roster.
Four months later, RunAway came out with yet another talented roster and absolutely dominated both seasons and made it all the way to 3 rd in the Gauntlet event.
So far in , Runaway once again rebuilt the entire roster and went on to win the Contenders Seeding Tournament and finished runner up in Contenders Season 1 Korea.
They did not manage to beat O2 Blast in the final but did prove once again that they are able to create winning rosters from scratch every single season.
This is exactly what makes a Korean Contenders team the 3 team on this list. The unparalleled capacity to create winning rosters almost every year regardless of circumstance.
Each team will play 28 matches across five four-week stages. Skip to navigation. Overwatch League teams and rosters for Season 2.
Insomniac Games at the forefront of the PlayStation 5's release. The competition is heating up, and only one school will be crowned the Collegiate Overwatch Champion!
Overwatch Collegiate: Championship Series teams have competed in our Fall season thus far, and we couldn't be more excited to announce early details for the tournament that will bring this academic year to a triumphant climax.

Student Sportsmanship We hold our competitors to a high standard when it comes to their behavior, whether they're in an official match or just playing online.
This time round we will do the opposite and maybe break the curse of the Florida squad. During the off-season the organization once again released a large part of their players and crew and made new signings in their place.
Once again we see the potential in their roster but we fear the results will not follow. The Valiant organization is going through a hard rebuild after a relatively stable season.
As of now, everyone is aware Valiant is aiming to build up their game in and nobody expects them to challenge for higher positions.
If they do however, good on them. The level of play within OWL has risen considerably since last year, and the confidence that Houston had in their players may be changing now that teams are being exposed to new standards.
To that end, Outlaws acquired three players in Rapel, MekO and Jecse to guide them through their season.
The following five represent the lower part of the mid-table group. Competition is fierce for the two play-ins spots that directly depend on the seeding in this part of the standings.
They tried to pick up some steam near the tail end of , but It was too little too late. The team however, did not change radically in the off-season as they are still betting on ArK, Corey and Stratus to do the heavy lifting.
But they do have long ways to go if they want to be relevant in the Overwatch League Rankings. Coming into , RUI had to put a hold to his coaching career and left the Hunters in a bit of pickle.
However, without their former coach the new roster feels lackluster at best and we simply cannot expect too much from the team until the possible return of RUI.
Spitfire decided to rebuild their roster entirely for the upcoming season. The season consisted of non-regulation pre-season play, a regular season divided into four stages, and a post-season playoffs tournament to determine the championship team for the season.
Each regular season stage lasted five weeks, with each stage ending with a short playoff of the top teams based on that stage's records to determine stage champions.
The post-season playoffs used teams' overall standings across all stages. The top standing team in both divisions received the top two seed in the playoffs, followed by a fixed number of teams determined from across both divisions.
The season format was similar to that of the previous season, though stage playoffs for the fourth stage were eliminated and the number of matches was decreased to 28, among other changes.
The season introduced a number of changes, including a home-and-away format, where each team would host home games with up to eight teams per homestand event, and the elimination of the stage format.
This format was eventually changed to a bimonthly tournament-based season in April due to the global impact of the COVID pandemic.
Teams are awarded with monetary prizes for how they place at the end of the regular season, as well as for participating and placing high in the stage playoffs and post-season tournament.
Overwatch is a six-versus-six team-based first-person shooter video game. Broadly, the goal is to work with team members to eliminate or repel opponents while attacking, defending, or competing for an objective.
Players select from the game's roster of thirty-two heroes , split between classes of Damage the main attackers , Support providing healing and other buffs , and Tank shielding teammates with high health amounts each with their own pre-designed set of weapons and skill kits, though each player on a team must play a unique hero.
Starting with stage four of the season, each team must be composed of two Damage heroes, two Supports, and two Tanks.
A player can switch to an available hero within the same class if they are eliminated prior to respawning , or if they return to their current spawn point, which allows for teams to adjust their composition dynamically based on the current situation.
Within league play, a regular season match features two teams one selected as the home team, the other as the visiting team playing at least four maps, with each map featuring a predetermined map type, following the same gameplay format as with normal competitive mode in Overwatch : Control maps, played on a best-of-three rounds, and Assault, Escort, and Hybrid maps, with each team having at least one chance as the attacking team.
The pool of specific maps from the standard Overwatch rotation are determined periodically, allowing the teams to determine their player lineups and strategy while also changing the season's metagame.
The team that wins three maps first wins the match. If teams are tied after four games, a tiebreaker game played on a Control map which cannot end in a tie is used to break the tie and determine the match winner.
Overwatch League games are played on a custom server controlled by Blizzard; this server is also available to players for practices.
This version of the game receives similar updates to the main commercial game, adding new maps and heroes, and altering the various hero abilities based on testing within the Public Test Realm.
However, these updates are not be applied immediately as they are for the commercial game, but instead no more frequent than once every six weeks.
For example, a late January patch, which had significant effects on characters like Mercy and thus had potential to upset the metagame , was not applied to the league server until mid-February, at the start of the second stage.
While Overwatch is played in teams of six, Overwatch League teams can have up to six additional players that can be swapped between maps. Subsequently, all unsigned players by the end of this period enter free agency during which players can negotiate with teams to become part of the roster; in the case of when expansion teams are added, there is a month-long period where expansion teams have exclusive negotiating rights before other teams can engage.
A team's minimum roster is to be set prior to the season's pre-season matches, about two months prior to season play, but they can expand and change this roster up until a specified date.
For example, the London Spitfire at the onset of the first season was entirely made up of South Korean players. The only restriction on players is to be of at least 18 years old and to be able to travel internationally.
Overwatch League players, while on a team's contract, are paid an annual salary. Additionally, the league offers players with health and retirement benefits, as well as housing and training support.
Players are expected to follow a code of conduct set by Blizzard while playing and representing the league, and may face suspension and fines for violating these, in addition to any penalties the team itself may impose.
Professional teams in the league are given the opportunity to scout for new players through two additional competitive leagues run by Blizzard.
The Open Division, first started in June , allows amateur teams to compete against each other in a structured season. Those that qualify at the end of the season are seeded into a post-season tournament with intra-regional matches.
Players that complete all non-playoff games for their team can earn a small amount of credit to Blizzard's digital storefront, while regional winning teams can earn higher prize payouts.
Players or teams can then move up from the Open Division into Overwatch Contenders , a minor league to the Overwatch League. Contenders was launched in to merge existing regional tournaments into a structure to support the Overwatch League.
Contenders consists of several global divisions with a number of teams within each, which may include both professional and amateur players. Contender teams may be affiliated with an Overwatch League team as an academy team , and up to two players per academy team can be signed to two-way contracts to be moved between their academy team and Overwatch League team.
Contenders was launched in the first half of with five divisions with 12 teams each: Korea replacing the Overwatch Apex tournament , China replacing the Overwatch Premier Series , and Pacific replacing Overwatch Pacific Championship for other Asian-Pacific countries , and adding in North America and European divisions.
Prior to the second Contenders season, Blizzard added two additional divisions, for Australia and South America, bringing the total to seven.
The top eight teams from the Open Division within each region are also invited to Contenders Trials, a weekly promotion and relegation tournament to compete in the following week of Contenders.
Blizzard also added a regional limit of the number of "import players", which are those that live outside the division's region, to a maximum of three.
Overwatch 's development started around , around the same time that esports and spectator-driven video gaming were starting to gain wide popularity due to accessibility of live streaming platforms.
According to Nate Nanzer, who was Blizzard's global director of research and consumer insights prior to being the league's commissioner, Blizzard considered the potential if they were the ones in charge of setting up these competitions.
Overwatch League was formally announced at BlizzCon in November Teams would provide competitors with salaries and benefits and would help "cultivate team and player development".
For Blizzard, the costs of running the league would be offset by traditional revenue streams that professional sports league have, such as promotion and advertisement, and physical League merchandise.
Kotick also said that due to the digital nature of the esport, Blizzard can also obtain revenue from virtual league-based items to fans, and additional sales of Overwatch and other games, and they are able to include more lucrative "over-the-top advertising opportunities that wouldn't exist in traditional sports".
Blizzard sought out potential team owners, aiming to include teams that were localized to a geographic area.
Blizzard believed having such local teams would spark more interest in esports from spectators and potential sponsors through new activities around supporting their team.
Blizzard anticipated the Overwatch League would have a seven-figure payoff for the winning team at the end of a season. Little information about the league came out of Blizzard following the initial November announcement for the next several months, leading to some speculation that the league was having trouble.
However, during this time, Activision Blizzard was working behind the scenes to engage potential team owners, wanting to hold back as to provide large comprehensive announcements rather than trickles of information.
Robert Kraft had been previously interested in investing into esports; he and Kotick had met earlier in when Kotick was looking to invest in an NFL franchise, where Kraft told him they were looking to seek investment in an esports team.
The first seven teams were revealed in July , and additional teams announced in the months following. In September , Blizzard announced that they would make permanent use of Studio 1 at The Burbank Studios in Burbank, California , which it converted into the " Blizzard Arena ", an esports venue which was initially used for both Overwatch Contenders and Overwatch League matches.
In July , it was discovered that the Major League Baseball association had issued a trademark dispute for the logo that Blizzard registered for the league, stating in their complaint to the United States Patent and Trademark Office that they felt Blizzard's logo was too similar to their own and may cause confusion.
To support spectating on broadcast and streaming media, Blizzard implemented cosmetic modifications to the game. Each team was given dedicated character skins with their respective team colors, names, and logos to use in matches.
Teams get a portion of the revenue of their team's skins. Blizzard has also worked to create an AI -based cameraman that can follow the action of the game as well as select key instant replays.
X" Morello, and Mitchell "Uber" Leslie. The permanent nature of teams with the Overwatch League, compared to promotion and relegation formats, would give opportunity for team owners to find additional revenue models by running their own stadiums and the merchandising opportunities for these, according to Morhaime.
