The Atlanta Reign made their debut in the 2019 season of the Overwatch League. Owned and operated by Atlanta Esports Ventures, they represent the American Southwest. Their logo features a red hawk rising upwards beneath a crown, and they typically feature a red and black colorway in their team jerseys. Based out of Atlanta, Georgia, they can be summed up as a relatively young squad who has experienced both success and failures during their time in the Overwatch League.
Atlanta Reign Roster
The current roster for the Atlanta Reign features 6 professional players. They are as follows:
- Blake “Gator” Scott – Tank
- Petja “Masaa” Kantanen – Support
- Xander “Hawk” Domecq – Tank
- Kim “Edison” Tae-Hoon – DPS
- Hugo “SharP” Sahlberg – DPS
- Seunghyun “Lr1s” Kim – Support
With veteran players such as Edison, Masaa, and SharP, the Reign roster also features several lesser known players as well as rookies. The Atlanta Reign roster has also been home to a few other notable players who have since departed. League star Andrej “babybay” Francisty retired from Overwatch and the Reign. Additionally, popular Twitch streamer Daniel “dafran” Francesca played for a brief period with the Reign before retiring from competitive play. He is still signed to the Reign as a streamer exclusively.
The Atlanta Reign Always At The Middle Of The Pack
In their time as a team in the Overwatch League, the Atlanta Reign have had an arguably moderate level of success. In both the 2019 and 2020 OWL playoffs, the Reign finished in a tie for 5th-6th place. In all of their competitive appearances, the Reign have yet to breach the top 3 or claim a victorious spot. However, in a similar fashion they have only once finished lower than 8th place in ranked appearances. Additionally, they have earned a respectable sum of winnings from their showings, securing $300k from the 2019 season and $75k from the 2020 season. This made betting on Atlanta Reign relatively safe, however, this highly depended on whom they’re facing.
Despite never attaining a coveted spot in a top 3 finish, the Reign have remained a consistent top 8 team throughout their history. They have managed to secure regular-season wins against top-seeded teams, but have yet to advance to the top-seeded level themselves. Due to their performance, Atlanta Reign odds could mostly be undervalued, so we always tend to keep an eye on them.
