Arnold Hur, Cheif Growth Officer for the Seoul Dynasty and Gen.G esports, recently spoke to Dexerto about the new approach the Dynasty are taking when it comes to Overwatch League Season 2 next year.

After failing to make the playoffs following a disappointing Stage 4, Hur said players and staff on the Dynasty came to a realization.

“We realized we weren’t getting any better,” Hur told Dexerto. “We have this amazing individually talented team, but we had this great realization we have to focus on getting better each game, every practice, working with players and coaches to make an organization that runs together.”

Hur said the biggest change for the Dynasty come Season 2 would be the team’s new unity within the Gen.G organization.

“The biggest thing we lacked last season was a unified identity, because of that, we were unable to execute on our vision,” Hur explained. “All of sudden there’s one voice as a team, even if we disagree, we’re going to commit to trying things.”

“Versus last year, when we had a lot of different cooks in the kitchen, so to speak,” he added.

Gen.G/The Seoul DynastyThe Dynasty are trying a new, unified strategy for Season 2.

Hur said he had begun to refer to the current Seoul Dynasty lineup as the “Redeem Team”.

“I feel like the Dynasty this year are underrated, people are totally sleeping on on our new pickups,” he told Dexerto. “That, and our core team members, how much they’ve improved and how unified they are this year, it’s incredible.”

The Gen.G esports organization is about a year old and already has teams in every major esport, and there’s no sign they have any plans to slow down soon, with a new training center coming to L.A. soon.


Overwatch cosplayer gets ready for Halloween as a perfect Mercy

Halloween is almost upon us, and cosplayers everywhere are preparing for the holiday. This Overwatch Mercy cosplay goes above and beyond when bringing this angelic healer to life and deserves some extra recognition. 

When Overwatch came out back in 2016, there were only three healers, and Mercy was one of them. A lot has changed since then and there are a lot more Heroes, and the hero herself has seen quite a few changes. Despite this, she remains a fan favorite, especially for cosplayers.

There are plenty of awesome OW cosplays out there, but Hanxiaoyue really brings her to life with the help of @Anka_Ephemere on Twitter. The two collaborate for a fantastic rendition with excellent photography and visual effects.

Mercy cosplayer preps for Halloween

Despite the fact that Witch Mercy is Mercy’s Halloween skin, Hanxiaoyue went with the Winged Victory skin with some extra spooky effects, and she nailed it. Starting with her hair, she puts her blonde hair in a ponytail and parts her bangs. It is held back by a golden crown with wing-like ear guards, just like in the cosmetic. To cap it off, she includes the fern-like plants behind her ears.

For her attire, she dons a white tunic with gold embroidery held up with a brown rope. On her arms and legs, she wears bracelets. On her back, she has Mercy’s signature wings, modeled directly off of the skin. Then, there is of course the staff, which is perfect down to the last little leaf.

If the cosplay itself wasn’t impressive enough, the graphic design that goes along with it really gives it life. @Anka_Ephemere includes two shots with Mercy on a dark and fiery battlefield, and then another two with her at what appears to be Ilios Ruins.

The first two images are fitting for the hero, as she is a beacon of hope and light on the battlefield. The Winged Victory skin also based on the Goddess Nike and works well with the other images on Ilios, which is an Overwatch map based on Santorini in Greece.

This is one of the most impressive Mercy cosplays out there, and Hanxiaoyue really brings the character to life along with @Anka-Ephemere’s photography and graphic design.
