Overwatch League expansion team Chengdu Hunters has announced three more players for its 2019 season roster. The first three players—the support line—were introduced yesterday.
Luo “Elsa” Wenjie, Ma “LateYoung” Tianbin, and Ding “Ameng” Menghan will play for Chengdu as the team’s tank lineup. Elsa joins the Overwatch League from LinGan Esports, while LateYoung previously played for Team CC. (LateYoung also played on Team China at the Overwatch World Cup with Li “Yveltal” Xianyao, who was announced as part of the team yesterday.) Chengdu’s final tank player, Ameng, comes from a lesser known Overwatch team called Big Time Ragel Gaming.
“Our shields are here, hunters,” Chengdu wrote on Twitter. “Our tanks for this season are focused and experienced. We are proud to have such a powerful front-line to lead us to victory.”
Chunting “Kyo” Kong and Li “Garry” Guan were announced alongside Yveltal as the expansion team’s support players. Even earlier in the week, Chengdu announced its coaches for the Overwatch League squad: Former Shanghai Dragons coach Xingrui “Rui” Wang and former Flash Wolves coach Chi-hua “Ray” Chang. “The hunt for victory has gained some powerful mentors,” the organization tweeted with the announcement.
Team colors and branding were put on display on Nov. 11. The Overwatch League’s 2019 season will begin on Feb. 14 at the Blizzard Arena Los Angeles in Burbank, California. All teams must have a minimum of eight players signed to the roster before Dec. 1, but have until an unannounced date to fill up to 12 players, if so desired.
