Florida Mayhem builds majority-Korean roster with three new additions for Overwatch League Season Two

Florida Mayhem have announced the addition of three new players to their Overwatch League roster.

Support player Choi ‘Kris’ Jun-soo joins from Meta Athena, DPS player Lee ‘BQB’ Sang-bum from X6-Gaming, and main tank Yoon ‘Swon’ Seong-won from NRG Esports.

Fans of OGN’s discontinued APEX tournament may recognize Swon by the name “Butcher”, under which he competed for Kongdoo Panthera and Kongdoo Uncia in seasons one to three.

The new additions are pending approval by the Overwatch League, but so far no players are known to have been denied entry to the league.

In the case of BQB there could be some complications, however, as he was previously linked to boosting while playing with X6-Gaming. In Season One, Dallas Fuel’s Son ‘OGE’ Min-seok and Philadelphia Fusion’s Kim ‘SADO’ Su-min both faced suspensions before being able to compete for the same offence.

BQB has already been punished by X6-Gaming in May 2018, when their investigation found –that he had been linked to boosting services. BQB’s winnings were donated instead to charity, and he was prohibited from broadcasting on his personal stream for three months. It remains to be seen whether the Overwatch League will see fit to apply its own penalty.

These new signings bring Florida Mayhem’s roster up to nine players, crossing the eight-player threshold all teams must hit by December 8. Having fielded a majority-Swedish line-up at the start of Season One, Season Two sees a dramatic shift for the Mayhem, with Kevyn ‘TviQ’ Lindström and Damon ‘Apply’ Conti the only non-Korean players on the squad right now.

Season Two of the Overwatch League is set to kick off on February 14. It has yet to be announced whether there will be any pre-season show-matches before then, as there were before the start of Season One.


How to use OP Torb turret placement in Overwatch Junkenstein’s Revenge

Junkenstein’s Revenge is one of the best ways to earn loot boxes during Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event, and there are a few spots for Torbjorn’s turret you should probably know about.

Halloween in Overwatch means plenty of new skins to unlock, including the Ragdoll Echo skin, which is now available until the event ends on November 3.

The only way to unlock the DPS hero’s new skin though is to win 9 games in any mode. If you stick to quick play and competitive this could easily take one or even two whole days, but if you simply grind them out in Junkenstein’s Revenge, the wins will only take a couple of hours instead.

Even though the seasonal PvE survival mode goes quicker than regular matches, you can definitely still lose if you don’t have the right team comp. This means that at all difficulty levels, Torbjorn is still a must-pick for his turret and it’s constant damage output.

You won’t get far in the harder difficulties of Junkenstein’s without Torb.

As for where to put this powerful, Zomnic-slaying device, there are several options that all work quite well, and are all fairly easy to pull off too – like on top of the overturned cart right down the middle lane. It has a commanding line of sight for the middle and left staircase spawns, and even covers part of the pond on the right side.

The best part of this spot might be the fact that it’s too close for Zombardiers to immediately target it, and it will hold boss aggro for as long as it’s around.

Next, placing the turret on the railing right on top of the left-hand stairs also gives it a great shot at all three spawns instead of just two, and gives you the ability to run up there and repair it when needed.

Finally, if you’re looking for something extra flashy to really impress your teammates, there’s even a way to get the turret up to the wooden platform just above the door where Widow and Ashe usually hang out.

Like in the clip above, head up the stairs to the right and go on to the platform they lead to (the place we all used to place the turret). Then head to the ledge closest to the door and aim at the ridge on the tower above the platform, straight up from the bush on the right side.

Another option is to jump from the edge and throw it at the apex of Torb’s leap if you have trouble getting it there while standing still. Toss it up, and your little guy is all set to rain down death on the army of undead charging the gates, and hopefully unlock that Echo skin a little bit quicker.
