As the competitive scene for Overwatch is rapidly shaping up, we can notice some changes to major teams. Notably, there were rumors of frenchman Joshua ‘ToxikeN’ Campos leaving Rogue to go and join Creation eSports. Rogue in return would sign up Jean-Lous ‘KnOxXx’ Boyer, a former team member of Creation eSports.
KnOxXx used to be a top-tier Team Fortress 2 player in Epsilon E-Sports, usually pairing up with Seb ‘numlocked’ Barton in his extravaganzas. Numlocked would have continued to remain in the roster of Creation eSports. For ToxikeN though, a team change may be helpful for him as he has seen a couple of losses in Creation during his time.
If the change were to take place, the current rosters of both teams would be,
- Rasmus ‘Draceus‘ Waern
- Jose Antonio Ramos ‘Bromas‘ Glez
- Joshua ‘ToxikeN‘ Campos
- Artur ‘art1er‘ Bischof
- Seb ‘Numlocked‘ Barton
- Jiri ‘LiNkzr‘ Masalin
- Dylan ‘aKmzzz‘ Bignet
- Michael ‘winz‘ Bignet
- Jonathan ‘Reinforce‘ Larsson
- Marcus ‘realzX‘ Vining
- Jean-Louis ‘KnOxXx‘ Boyer
- Benjamin ‘uNKOE‘ Chevasson
- Kevin ‘TviQ‘ Lindstrom
As of right now, Creation eSports has denied the move, stating that KnOxXx remains a registered player of the team. Playing with Rogue for one match was nothing more than that.
Overwatch’s competitive scene is rapidly growing, all around the globe. Not only European, but Chinese teams have also emerged in the battlefield. It’s likely that with the current pace we will see Overwatch in the ranks of League of Legends, CS:GO and DOTA 2. And as time goes on, top players will emerge in the spotlight and create a legacy and name for the game.
