The Paris Overwatch League franchise has announced its full roster for Season Two.

Paris is the first of the eight expansion teams to reveal the full line-up that will make the team’s debut in Overwatch League’s second season.

The team has opted for an all-European line-up, becoming the only such team as of right now. The Paris franchise is the second based in Europe, but London Spitfire won Season One of the league with an all-Korean line-up.

Most notable are DPS stars Terrence ‘SoOn’ Tarlier and George ‘ShaDowBurn’ Gushcha, who spent Season One with Los Angeles Valiant and Philadelphia Fusion respectively. With SoOn known for his Tracer and ShaDowBurn for his Genji, the pair are among the more iconic Western DPS players.

Other than SoOn and ShaDowBurn, the rest of the Paris line-up mostly introduces some new names to the Overwatch League. Only flex tank Finnbjörn ‘Finnsi’ Jónasson also has experience on an Overwatch League team, but he spent almost all of his time on the bench for Los Angeles Valiant.

Paris looked to Contenders for the rest of their squad. While most join from Contenders EU teams, a couple of European players competing in the North American Division of Contenders also made the cut.

The Paris franchise has yet to announce their team name and branding for the Overwatch League. Season Two is set to kick off on February 14.

The full Paris roster:

Player Role Previous Team
Terrence ‘SoOn‘ Tarlier DPS Los Angeles Valiant
George ‘ShaDowBurn‘ Gushcha DPS Philadelphia Fusion
Nicolas ‘NiCO‘ Moret DPS Eagle Gaming
Karol ‘Danye‘ Szcześniak DPS Copenhagen Flames
Damien ‘HyP‘ Souville Support Eagle Gaming
Harrison ‘Kruise‘ Pond Support Toronto Esports
Benjamin ‘BenBest‘ Dieulafait Main Tank Young and Beautiful
Finnbjörn ‘Finnsi’ Jónasson Flex Tank Los Angeles Valiant

Overwatch pro Super returns on Jimmy Fallon: When to watch

OWL star Matthew “Super” DeLisi has been added as a guest on the show for the second time, linking up with popular presenter Jimmy Fallon. 

The Overwatch League is full of shining personalities, but it’s safe to say that the captain of reigning back-to-back champions San Francisco Shock is one of the league’s boldest and brightest.

The 20-year-old main tank player has certainly won the hearts of OWL fans, not only because his plays are the definition of brilliance, but because in every interview he features in his enthusiasm for the game is infectious.

This is likely why Jimmy Fallon has elected to bring back the OWL star for the 26 October episode of the classic American talkshow, The Tonight Show.

This isn’t Super’s first time on The Tonight Show

Back in 2019 Super made his inaugural television appearance alongside former Overwatch flex player turned Valorant star Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won. Both players provided America’s viewers with insight into how the esports world works, discussing their rigorous schedules and sharing how many hours they sink into the game.

Super’s guest appearance on the show coincided with the team’s 2019 victory over the Vancouver Titans in the OWL finals, therefore it makes a lot of sense that Super has been asked to return to the show following a dominant performance over Seoul Dynasty.

When to watch and why

It’s nice to see esports becoming more prominent in mainstream media, so it’s worth tuning in to support the growth of esports, as well as learn a little bit about Overwatch as well. Super certainly knows the game inside out.

You can tune in to watch The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon at 11:35pm ET on NBC on Monday, 26 October to see Super alongside superstars Sterling K. Brown and Zoe Lister-Jones.
