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 colourway 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. This makes the Reign a relatively risky Overwatch bet. 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.
