The Overwatch roster of Team Kungarna has announced that they have become a part of a new organization. A day before the start of the Overwatch Winter Premiere finals at PAX South, Kungarna announced they have been brought under the Ghost Gaming banner. The team will participate at the finals as “Ghost” where they will compete against Immortals, compLexity Gaming, and Luminosity Gaming for the title.
Ghost Gaming is a newly found esports organization and currently has one other team. The organization also sponsors a Gears of War 4 team that recently competed at MLG Mexico City, where they finished third behind two big industry names in Team EnVyUs and OpTic Gaming. The organization is happy to announce this new partnership and claim that Kungarna received offers from big esports organizations with team in League of Legends and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
Michael “Mykl” Padilla, a flex player on the roster, is excited about the announcement. “This is the right fit for us, and we are stoked to be a Ghost team,” Mykl said. “We’re both new on the scene, and looking to make big things happen. It’s going to be a great ride.”
PAX South begins Jan. 27 and will have action lasting for two days. The final will feature a best-of-five format with double elimination. Ghost will play compLexity in their first match as a newly signed team.
Ghost Gaming’s new roster is as follows:
- Flex: Connor “ConnorJ” Johnson
- DPS: Andrej “babybay” Frencisty
- Flex: Michael “mykL” Padilla
- Tank: Luis “iRemix” Galarza
- Support: Taylor “b1am” Forrest
- Support: Alex “Ajax” Jackson
Update: Ajax was not signed by Ghost, and will be leaving the team after PAX South. It is not known what his plans are, but the team will have to find a new support player to round out the roster.
