The Seoul Dynasty took their name as representation of the city's seat as the capital of the country and the Joseon Dynasty (among other kingdoms), Dynasty also has a special meaning in sports - it's typically reserved for teams that have won multiple championships, a phenomenon that Korean e-sports teams are well familiar with. The logo is a stylized imperial emblem of a tiger, an animal that has cultural ties with the Korean people. The team's CEO Kevin Chou took to YouTube to talk about the background of the team and their expectations for the future:
As with the other five teams in this professional competitive Overwatch endeavor, the Dynasty will get a custom skin for one of the game's heroes. The team will be repped by D.Va who will be clad in the team's colors of black and gold alongside silver accents. D.Va is a professional gamer from the Republic of Korea in the game's lore who was picked up by the military to pilot one of their MEKA units, largely thanks to her reaction time and skills from years of playing video games.
Aside from the announcement of the Republic of Korea's team name, the league has put out roster announcements for some of the teams that were revealed in the last few weeks. The Boston Uprising has had eight members from around the world named as joining their roster and the Dallas Fuel have picked up a player from Australia.
The Overwatch League will begin its preseason on December 6, 2017, with the regular season to follow on January 10, 2018. If you'd like to keep up with the Dynasty, you can follow them on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Twitch, and YouTube.
