New eSports organisation VeloxGG have announced a revised Overwatch roster in time for the ESL UK Premiership, and is aiming to be the top team in the UK.
The org started making a name for themselves a few weeks back, after almost beating Choke Gaming in the final of one of the weekly UK Overwatch Ballistix cups.
Now they have revised their roster to ensure at least four of the six players are British, in order to be eligible to participate in the first Overwatch UK Premiership.
Tonight they lost to Team EndPoint in the qualifiers, but look set to qualify and take part in the Premiership.
Mark “Oracle” Hare, CEO of VeloxGG, told eSports News UK: “I completely trust the members I have assigned leadership positions to.
“My goals, and their goals, are perfectly aligned. We aim to be the top team in the UK. Nothing will keep us from that.”
The new roster is as follows:
- hypoc_ -DPS
- TigerBae – DPS
- Cybert – Support
- Synnek – Tank
- Desiqn – Flex
- Noukky – Support
The org added in a statement on Twitter: “Over the past month, ever since revealing our starting roster, we have strived to make improvements.
“Day in day out, week after week, unfortunately we have been unable to field a strong calibre of players who share similar ambitions and have the same mindset as the people supporting them.
“Over this time we have made it our goal to become a UK roster and participate in the UK Premiership. As a result we have not been happy with the starting roster, but in light of this we will be fielding a roster for the ESL UK Premiership in the hopes of breathing fresh interest our way.
“We’re happy to reveal the players participating in the tournament under VeloxGG who also happen to be our current trials.”
