One enterprising Redditor has uncovered what appear to be five of the new Overwatch League Team’s logos, which potentially means we now know every team in the League’s branding except for Vancouver, which was not included in the leak.

The logos were posted to Reddit by user BetterFixThat on the Overwatch League Subreddit, who said they found them in the Overwatch League Apps API.

We’ll start off in China, which has three teams joining the Overwatch League this year, Hangzhou appear to be the “Spark”, featuring a pointing hand with kind of an electrical discharge surrounding it.

Guangzhou are the “Charge” and features another of those beloved logos made out of letters, Guangzhou have been going by the moniker “Team GZ” in the absence of an official name so far, so this branding at least fits the theme they were already going with.

Next is the Chengdu “Hunters”, which features a color scheme similar to the Seoul Dynasty, gold and black. They also get extra style points for including a panda as their logo, because who doesn’t love pandas?

Paris is next, featuring the name “Eternal” and with a maroon, stylized rooster for the logo. The ‘Gallic Rooster’ is a symbol of France, which is why you see the French national football and rugby teams wear a rooster on their kit.

Finally, we head back to the states to look at the Washington “Justice”, whose logo is a shield featuring imagery from the U.S. flag and capitol city. It kind of looks like it could be the logo of a startup American Football league that plays in the spring or something like that.

Since these leaks are from the official OWL app’s API, they have much more credibility than a random 4chan post, but there are still probably some people wishing Toronto had gone with the “Venom” for a team name.

Overwatch League doesn’t get started until 2019, but now that these logos are out, we’ll have to see how long the remaining teams wait to do their “official” branding reveals.

The Overwatch community is rallying behind a 26-year-old player who passed away earlier in October after defending a woman from a man who allegedly broke into her home with a knife.

Tiago de Souza, who reportedly played thousands of hours and mained Hanzo, Pharah, Sigma, McCree and Doomfist, reportedly gave his life to save a friend and her daughters.

According to Brazilian media, Tiago was at the woman’s house when her ex-partner broke in with a knife in-hand, trying to attack her.

Investigators say the suspect beat the woman with punches. When Tiago tried to interfere, he was allegedly stabbed and died on the spot.

The suspect later went to the police station in Prudentópolis on his own accord and was detained.

A petition on the website Avaaz describes Tiago as “very fond of science and questioning the mysteries of the universe.”

“He liked several games, but undoubtedly his passion was Overwatch,” the petition continued, noting how he had unlocked four golden guns for different heroes through competitive play.

Tiago enjoyed playing as Hanzo.

“Tiago was an incredible, selfless and generous person, who gave his life to save someone else’s,” the petition said. “We, friends and family, do not want your courageous attitude to be forgotten, and nothing better to honor you than with a tribute in your favorite game.”

So far, over 2,000 people have signed the petition asking Blizzard to honor the player, though they didn’t specify on how they would like the company to pay tribute to Tiago.

Potentially, if Blizzard were going to honor the player, they could do so on the Brazilian Lucio Ball map for the Summer Games event, or even something from Overwatch 2, whenever that game is released.

Blizzard does have a decent track record of honoring its players. Notably, Blizzard immortalized the streamer Reckful by adding a Rogue Trainer NPC with his gamer tag in World of Warcraft.

Hopefully, Blizzard can continue this trend an honor the Brazilian player.
