The Atlanta Reign are a new Overwatch League team and a job posting gave a pretty big hint on the players they plan on signing in the coming seasons.

The new organization is looking for a chef to cook meals for the players and posted the opening on an esports job website.

Most of the requirements are standard for any Chef job and include skills like cooking, cleaning and grocery shopping.

One requirement however, is very specific to the Overwatch League:

Have lived in Korea for several years (ideally 5 years) and have a firm understanding of Korean culture and cuisine.

Korean players have been dominant during the inaugural season of the Overwatch League and in the Overwatch World Cup, where South Korea has yet to lose a single match in three years.

That Korean BBQ place in LA isn’t as authentic as they claim, apparently.

The Reign currently feature players from Germany, Finland, Denmark, Russia and the USA, making them one of the more international teams in the OWL.

They also have three Korean players on their roster, but if the job posting is any indication, they may be looking to add more as the new franchise grows.

Overwatch meets WarCraft with epic RTS custom game mode

Overwatch and RTS games like WarCraft and StarCraft might seem like complete opposites, but the two styles have been combined into a very promising-looking Workshop mode that lets you control multiple heroes as if they were individual units.

If we look at Blizzard games like one big family tree, then the StarCraft and Warcraft franchises could probably be considered something like Overwatch’s grandparents.

Back in the day StarCraft especially was one of the biggest esports on the planet, but the RTS genre has sadly fallen to wayside in recent years. Both still have dedicated communities though (even after the disaster that was Reforged) and it’s safe to say a good number also play Overwatch now as well.

Irish Overwatch manager Andygmb clearly hasn’t outgrown his love for real-time strategy, not that one ever does, decided to take the top down style from those games and apply it to all of our favorite heroes using Josbird’s cursor tool in the Workshop mode.

You can scroll around the map, and drag the map to select multiple units and control them all at once. Like an RTS game, you can tell them where to go, and when to attack something.

Right off the top of our heads if they ever were to make an Overwatch game like this, we’d wager that Roadhog rush would be a great opening build to start with.

But it doesn’t take much to imagine a League of Legends-style game as well being made playable with this type of game either. Sure, Blizzard already has Heroes of the Storm, but that only features a few Overwatch heroes to choose from, where this could add the whole roster.

Overwatch has over 30 different heroes that could make all kinds of different units.

With Heroes of the Storm already existing (and producing cooler skins for D.Va than Overwatch itself) our chances of seeing an official RTS featuring the game’s heroes are unfortunately slim to none.

That has never stopped players before though, so we’d keep our eyes out for some kind of League clone to appear before too long on the Custom Game browser. Until then, you can always waste more time playing Among Us there as well.
