Luxury watch teams to merge to form a new star studded roster

LW Red and Blue are two teams that the Luxury Watch brand has in Overwatch. The two teams have been at a similar skill level but in recent times, Red have been pulling ahead of the two.

In the past these two teams were widely known as the best teams in Korea. However following their shocking inability to qualify for the Apex Season 1 and with rise of several other teams such as RunAWAY, the teams have not been as dominant in the Korean scene. Their inability to qualify for Apex Season 1 was followed by mediocre performances at Apex Season 2 Challenger and the Nexus Halloween Cup.

The new team will see the dps players from LW Red remain on the roster. It will also see 4 players from LW blue join them to form a very strong team.

It is unknown as yet what will happen to the LW Blue team; the rebuilding of this roster could reasonably come in the form of direct transfers from the old LW Red but the management may look elsewhere.

Luxury Watch Red‘s roster for IEM Gyeonggi (with presumed roles) is:

  • Heo “Gambler” Jin-woo (hard support)
  • Jang “Luna” Gyeong-ho (flex support)
  • Song “janus” Jun-hwa (tank)
  • Park “Saebyeolbe” Jong-ryeol (flex)
  • Hwang “nanohana” Yeon-oh (flex dps)
  • Kim “Pine” Do-hyun (dps)
  • Kim “Mek0” Tae-hong (flex sub)

Luxury Watch Red‘s roster in APEX Season 2: Super Week will be:

  • Park “Arcane” Sung-jin (hard support)
  • Kim “starky” Beung-joo (flex support)
  • Lee “Beom” Gee-beom (tank)
  • Kim “aWesomeGuy” Seong-hun (flex)
  • Hwang “nanohana” Yeon-oh (flex dps)
  • Kim “Pine” Do-hyun (dps)
