Pro player Andreas “Logix” Berghmans is officially back in the Overwatch League after being signed from his Contenders team to the Toronto Defiant.

Logix was a part of Misfits Gaming’s Overwatch team and went on to play with the Florida Mayhem during their disappointing Inaugural Season.

As the Mayhem moved to a new roster, Logix and the team parted ways, and the DPS star began his grind in Contenders.

The Overwatch LeagueLogix became a fan-favorite for his impressive Tracer and Widowmaker play.

Where is Logix now?

After playing with the Montreal Rebellion Overwatch Contenders team for the first Season of 2019, the Toronto Defiant announced they had brought Logix up from the Rebellion to once again play in the Overwatch League.

As soon as the signing was made public, the “Thank Mr. Logix” memes began rolling in, and Overwatch League fans celebrated the return of one of the Inaugural Season’s fan-favorite Widowmaker players.

Logix helped the Rebellion reach fourth place in North American Contenders West, and he’ll be joining a Toronto team that sits in the middle of the Overwatch League Table – 12th place in Season 2 so far, with a 7-10 record.

The Defiant face off against the L.A. Gladiators on June 28 at 7:15 PM PST, but we don’t know whether or not Logix will see any playing time, as he was signed to Toronto the same day – it’s impossible to tell for sure though.

JJonak’s MVP Zenyatta skin is now available

If you needed more reason besides the possible return of Logix to tune into Overwatch League, Blizzard just released a brand new Zenyatta skin to commemorate Sung-hyeon “JJoNak” Bang’s Inaugural Season MVP Award.

“Zen-Nakji” is an awesome Legendary skin for Zenyatta, and even includes little octopus orbs that are as adorable as they are deadly.

The new Zenyatta skin can be purchased for 200 OWL Tokens, which can be earned by watching matches on Twitch with a connected account.

Players who want the new skin should make sure they get it before it becomes unavailable after July 14.

Seagull explains why Overwatch 2 will focus on PvE campaign over PvP

Twitch streamer and former Overwatch League pro Brandon ‘Seagull’ Larned delved into why he believes the sequel’s campaign will be getting more attention from the developers than the multiplayer PvP.

While Overwatch 2 was announced at BlizzCon 2019 to much fanfare, a lot is unknown about the sequel. What we do know, however, is that the game will feature a campaign mode that should push the story forward drastically.

Additionally, there will be at least one new PvP mode in the form of ‘Push,’ new maps, and several new heroes added to the roster.

According to Seagull, while the competitive multiplayer component is in a good spot, Blizzard’s devs are probably pivoting the franchise.

Overwatch 2 will have new heroes.

As Larned explained, they’re doing this to “better appeal to all the casual players who love the Overwatch universe, but stopped playing because they don’t want to play PvP.”

“How many people do you know who see Overwatch cinematics and say ‘that looks so f**king cool’ and then they log in, but they don’t want to play a hardcore sweaty PvP game?” he further noted.

He continued to compare the casual player base to fans of World of Warcraft and Destiny, where there is a heavy focus on PvE content, and how Overwatch 2 will appeal to them.

“And then you have a dev team who is all former MMO developers who worked on f**king Titan for like a billion years before that game got canceled,” he added. “Of course they’re probably going to make the coolest f**king PvE game. It’s like the best sequence of events.”

“They have an audience that really loves the universe…of course they’re going to go down that line,” Seagull claimed. “That seems pretty straightforward to me.”

With BlizzCon 2020 moved to February, it’s looking like we’re going to learn a lot more about the game and how it will appeal to both casual and ladder players in 2021.

But, if you’re anything like Seagull, you can’t wait to see how the team handles the long-awaited, highly anticipated sequel.
