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.

Cosplay

Overwatch cosplayer sprints into battle as Soldier 76 with female twist

Cosplayers are no strangers to creating unique outfits based on Overwatch heroes and Hendoart proved to be no different with her stunning female take on Soldier 76.

Soldier 76 is one of the original classic Overwatch heroes, having been around since the game’s launch. With his iconic red, white, and blue jacket, mask, plus heavy pulse rifle, Jack Morrison can easily stand out in a crowd.

That all said, cosplayer and streamer Sarah ‘Hendoart’ Hendo decided to tackle the DPS hero from her own perspective, in what she called a “mini gender bend.”

As you can see from the photos, Hendo absolutely nailed the look of Soldier 76 getting the jacket, gloves, gun, and even biotic field down pat.

Meanwhile, she also added some of her own flair. Thanks to her feminine figure, the outfit manages to take on a life of its own, especially with her flowing brown hair behind 76’s mask.

However, the best part comes in the form of a little video she created with a fellow Mercy cosplayer. In the clip, the battle-scarred Hendo begs for healing and even “spams” for it – a bit of a meme in the Overwatch community.

“Just a battle-damaged Soldier and a Mercy who dgaf about me,” she captioned the video.

Eventually, the Mercy begins to nurse Hendo back to health and starts wrapping her arm in a bandage, and evaluates the rest of the hero’s injuries.

Hendo’s cosplays aren’t limited to just Overwatch either. She has cosplayed as many different DC and Marvel superheroes including Spider-Man, Harley Quinn, Joker, Mary Jane, and Venom just to name a few.

Soldier 76 isn’t the only Overwatch cosplay she’s done either. In the past, she has done many different takes on the tank hero D.Va including her School Girl and Tangerine themed skins.

With Overwatch 2 on the way and multiple more heroes coming with the sequel, this likely isn’t the last we’ve seen from Hendoart and quite frankly, we can’t wait to see what else she has in store.
