The 2019 Overwatch League starts on February 14, and the Los Angeles Valiant have revealed their roster for Season Two with a hilarious play on the intro to the popular show The Office.

The Valiant were one of the original Overwatch League teams during Season One, but made some big changes over the offseason, such as trading star DPS Terence “SoOn” Tarlier to the new Paris Eternal team.

Therefore, to officially introduce the Valiant’s new roster, the team took inspiration from the popular television series ‘The Office.’

The video begins with Valiant Head Coach Byung-chul Moon, and runs through the rest of the 2019 roster from there.

Valiant Support/DPS player Young-seo ‘KariV’ Park is shown shredding pieces of paper with “dive” written on them.

There are a ton of funny little details hidden into the video, such as someone highlighting a memo that just reads, “learn to play Brigitte” over and over again.

The Valiant’s full, 2019 roster is listed below:

Brady ‘Agilities’ Girardi
Indy ‘SPACE’ Halperin
Pan-seung ‘Fate’ Koo
Young-seo ‘KariV’ Park
Jun-hyeok ‘Bunny’ Chae
Scott ‘Custa’ Kennedy
Kyle ‘KSF’ Frandanisa
Min-chul ‘Izayaki’ Kim
Dae-kuk ‘KuKi’ Kim

The Valiant’s first Overwatch League season ended in the first round of the Inaugural Season Playoffs, when they lost to the eventual champions the London Spitfire.

No doubt players will be looking for a better result this year, and fans will be eager to see how the team’s new lineup does in matches.

The Overwatch League starts on February 14, and the Valiant’s first match of 2019 is on Saturday, February 16 against the Hangzhou Spark.


Genius Overwatch trick lets Mercy escape fights on Numbani

Mercy has a new path to safety on Numbani thanks to an extremely clever Overwatch trick that lets her glide away from intense teamfights.

If you’re ever stuck in a pickle as Mercy, you can always fall back on her Guardian Angel ability to get you out of trouble. Moving from one spot to another in the blink of an eye can easily keep you alive when things are looking grim.

Angelic Descent also comes in handy, enabling Mercy as one of the more mobile Supports in the game. Her kit might be limited in terms of offensive output. However, she can move through the air like no other hero. It turns out her movement abilities might even be more useful than you’d first think.

A genius new spot on the first point of Numbani can have you gliding to safety in no time at all. Here’s what you need to know so you can execute it for yourself.

Directly behind the Payload is where you want to line up for this unique trick.

If you’re positioned towards the back of the first capture point, you might be familiar with the often-deadly drop. It can be all too easy to get booped and fall to your death in this position. Whether it’s a Lucio flying overhead or a Wrecking Ball crashing into your team, you’ve likely experienced some pain in this location.

However, playing near this spot is worth the risk for this particular reward with Mercy. A simple tree beyond the railing is actually the perfect distance to jump right into. Once wedged between the branches, you can quickly walk forward and navigate up the front of the tree.

While you might think there’s nowhere to go from here, Mercy’s Angelic Descent completely changes the game. With a perfectly timed jump, you can slowly glide around the corner. This lets you rotate all the way behind the first point and land safely next to the street.

There’s a Mega health pack waiting for you upon landing as well. Just in case you get tagged up while making your escape.

It might not come in handy for every team fight, but if things are looking dire, it could be the perfect way to get out with your life.

Not feeding the enemy team is often just as important as building your own Ultimates. So keep this unique trick in mind the next time Numbani appears in rotation. It’s just another next-level tactic for Support mains to have at the ready.
