When London Spitfire became the Stage One champion of Overwatch League’s first season, the transfer window opened.
Overwatch League teams were able to sign free agents from Jan. 22, but were only able to acquire players from other organizations after Feb. 11 when Stage One ended.
Shuffles between Overwatch League teams were slow in the weeks that followed the window opening, but many have been officially announced since then, especially in the last two weeks.
Other transfers are from Overwatch League teams that signed talented players who had a good performance in relevant tournaments in 2017—like the Overwatch World Cup and the now-gone Overwatch APEX.
The transfer window closed on April 3, but transfers made before the deadline can still be announced at a later date. Teams will have to stick with their roster until the end of season one. Here are all the confirmed moves among the 12 teams.
