Following the announcement of the name of the first Overwatch League team as the Shanghai Dragons, Blizzard Entertainment has revealed the name of the Dallas, Texas team for the game’s professional circuit: the Dallas Fuel. The announcement was released on a news post on the official league site.
Comprised of members of Team Envy (known by some fans as “the boys in blue”), the Dallas Fuel represents Dallas, Texas for the Overwatch League. It is one of twelve teams in Blizzard’s in-house professional league for their popular first-person shooter. The team is owned by Mike “Hastr0” Rufail alongside partners Ken Hersh and the Hersh Interactive Group, a private asset management company that fronted a whopping $35 million for the franchise rights to the most populous city in the state of Texas. Much like the Shanghai Dragons, the team’s name was selected to be something evocative of the culture of the home city and surrounding area.
The Shanghai Dragons have a special branded Mei skin to represent their team and Dallas’ competitive cadre is no different. The team’s unique skin is for Genji and is painted in the team’s official colors – a flashy mix of blues with silver accents.
If you’d like to stay apprised of the latest news about this team you can follow them on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter. The league’s first season will have twelve teams in total, two of which have had their names revealed so far. The preseason for the league begins on December 6, 2017, and the season proper begins on January 10, 2017.
