The new Overwatch League team from Paris will officially be known as the “Eternal” and they officially revealed the team’s logo and colors during an event live-streamed on Twitch on Thursday.

The teams colors are dark blue, maroon, and gold, no black and red this time, and the logo is a representation of the ‘Gallic Rooster’, which can be found on various French national team jerseys.

The logo and name are the same ones revealed in a leak from the official Overwatch League app on November 7, which means the other team’s names and logos that got leaked are likely real as well.

Overwatch League Comissioner Nate Nanzer was in France for the event, and told fans he thought Paris, and Europe as a whole, had a lot to bring to Overwatch and esports in general.

During the event, fans and Paris players seemed excited and ready to get started preparing for the upcoming Overwatch League season.

Now that Paris has been officially unveiled, only five new teams haven’t officially revealed any logos or branding. Of those five, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Chengdu and Washington were included in November 7’s leak, which means only Vancouver remains a complete unknown.

Guangzhou hinted on their Twitter account on the same day as the leak that the would have a big announcement coming soon, which could be another official team reveal.

CoD streamers slam Warzone star WarsZ for “pathetic” K/D tanking

Call of Duty: Warzone stars continue to call each other out – this time Tommey is joined by HusKerrs and others in critiquing multi-event champion, WarsZ, for manipulating tournament Kill-Death Ratio (K/D) caps by tanking his account.

With more and more money being piled into Warzone tournaments, the stakes are higher than ever and competitors are understandably adamant about integrity. Many of these competitions have turned to K/D caps, as a way to limit good players from forming super squads that’ll end up dominating the opposition.

Following earlier condemnations from top streamers like NICKMERCS and Aydan about others gaming the K/D cap limits, Tommey has exposed WarsZ in particular for allegedly partaking in the unfair practice.

Tommey, a former Call of Duty League player and multi-time Warzone champion, did not hesitate to single out WarsZ for a suspicious drop in his kill-death ration just ahead of this week’s leg of the $210,000 Vikkstar Warzone Showdown.

Although the caps have been instituted in tournaments to provide for better parity among teams, they can also be manipulated by purposefully delivering uncharacteristically poor performances.

WarsZ has won six Warzone championships across different tournaments, so Tommey’s linked image of the streamer having double-digit zero-kill matches in the past few days is particularly damning.

“People seem to be scared of the repercussions but I’m fed up with the bulls**t,” Tommey tweeted, tagging the rival competitor directly while calling the alleged tanking “pathetic.”

As for WarsZ’s response, it was not well-received. Suggesting that this notable drop in K/D was spurred by having his “girl” play on his account, a variety of notable Warzone competitors slammed the excuse. Among those wast renowned multi-time champion, HusKerrs, who replied simply, “Brother, c’mon now… nobody is buying that.”

Popular streamer DougisRaw also chimed in, mocking the excuse for how obviously the screenshot goes against the idea of letting an inexperienced player drop in for some games: “Damn, your girl plays solo squads. She’s cracked.”

 

While none of the allegations can be proven, many seem dissatisfied with WarsZ’s excuse and believes it is unfair to competitors like Jukeyz and others who were unable to snag tournament spots because of their high K/D.

It must be noted, as Tommey mentioned in the tweet above, that Vikkstar’s tournament technically doesn’t prohibit such a tactic, so while WarsZ isn’t breaking any rules, it’s fair to say that the rest of the big-name competitors don’t think too highly of it.

It remains to be seen if other tournaments will begin following NICKMERCS in the way he runs his MFAM Gauntlets, monitoring participants’ past in-game performances to make sure that they’re not trying to circumvent the K/D cap.
