The Overwatch League has had the name of its next team revealed on the team’s official Twitch channel: The Paris Eternal. The live stream was announced an hour prior to the start of the stream on the team’s Twitter. The Paris Eternal is the third of eight expansion teams that are set to make their appearance in the second season of the Overwatch League.
The live stream began a few minutes later than they were expected to start and featured a bilingual presentation. Among the guests on stage was the Overwatch League commissioner Nate Nanzer; he took the time to apologize for some of the game’s schedules that saw Paris fans having to watch games at 5:00 in the morning local time. We also got introduced to the French casting desk at the outset of the presentation. It’s not online just yet, but you’ll probably be able to watch the VOD a little later today in the archives.
The team’s colors are blue and red with gold accents. (Looks like Chad, Columbia, and Ecuador are out of luck if they ever get a team.) Doomfist and Widowmaker were used to show off the team’s skins. The logo is a stylized red rooster in the shape of an infinity symbol.
Paris announced their roster for the team around the same time that the Atlanta Reign debuted their team name and logo. Members include Team France player BenBest, former Los Angeles Valiant player Soon, and former Philadelphia Fusion player Shadowburn. The latter two men will be particularly valuable for the Paris Eternal’s inaugural season thanks to their experience with the Overwatch League in its first year.
This is the third of eight expansion teams to be revealed so far for the second season of the Overwatch League. This announcement was preceded by the Toronto Defiant and Atlanta Reign. We’re sure to hear about the other five teams in the coming weeks, especially now that all of the hubbub from Blizzcon 2018 has died down. Guangzhou appears set to announce their team name and logo tomorrow.
