Overwatch gets first female player as Geguri joins the Dragons

Since the Overwatch League mid-season signing period began on January 22nd, and the trade period just starting on February 11th, teams have been all over the place signing new players and initiating trades.

Founded in 2016, the league sees gamers battle it out in the popular first-person shooting game Overwatch. She is South Korean, with a win-rate of 80 per cent, and previously played for ROX Orcas in South Korea. She's also been working on expanding her hero pool ahead of joining the OWL beyond her beloved Zarya to include D.Va and Roadhog.

The first stage of the Overwatch League was pretty rough for the Shanghai Dragons, but they've added a few pieces to make things go smoother next stage.

In its press release, the team say the new signings address "core problems". By then, there will be a transparent and comprehensive selection method, which will guarantee a fair and just selection process for the opportunity to compete on a global esports stage.

It came as a surprise when none of the team were picked up by Shanghai Dragons, with several of the players considered the best Chinese players in their respective roles. The team is now working to secure visas for all four players, and will provide "language assistance, professional education, and logistical support".

All members of the Shanghai Dragons will work together to help the four new players adjust to the high-intensity competition of the Overwatch League, so that they can show their best form and level of play. While many have since moved on from Overwatch, the addition of Sky should certainly bolster what has often been a lacklustre Support line-up.
