Is OpTic Gaming Adding an Overwatch Team?
Mark this one under speculation and rumor, but if it is true, it could be big news. FNATIC Overwatch player, CoolMatt69, might have spilled the beans on the next big organization to jump into Overwatch esports, and it is none other than the "Green Wall" of OpTic Gaming.
Check out the Oddshot of CoolMatt69's live stream, as he accidentally lets out what could be secret stuff going on behind the scenes, or a baseless rumor with nothing behind it at all. We will let you be the judges.
"Yeah, I think OpTic is talking to WEUNITED. I don't know if that's a spoiler, I shouldn't have said anything."
Well, he definitely sounds like a guy who just put his foot in his mouth, at the very least.
WEUNITED is an Overwatch squad that consists of both Americans and Europeans, such as TwoEasy, z0mbs, Forsak3n and even Rod "Slasher" Breslau, a longtime esports journalist and community member. GosuGamers has WEUNITED ranked as the sixth-best European team and the thirteenth-best team in the world.
It would make sense for OpTic and pretty much any esports organization to move into Overwatch, as it appears to be on the rise as a competitive game. While its numbers have not been incredibly successful just yet, the game is still in its infancy and can only improve as time goes on. And if Blizzard's track record is any indication, Overwatch will be around as an esport for a long time to come.
