With the Overwatch League rapidly approaching for Season 2, fans are biting at the bit to see their favorite teams take to the stage when the Opening Week kicks off Feb. 14. As one of the league's eight new teams, the Washington Justice have built their roster for success, but whether the team will find it in 2019 has yet to be seen.
Corey “Corey” Nigra, Ethan “Stratus” Yankel, and Chon “Ado” Gi-hyeon will complete the team’s DPS line. Mun “gido” Gi-Do, Cho “Hyeonu” Hyeon-woo, and Riley “Fahzix” Taylor will play as supports. To wrap up the roster, Kim “Sansam” Hyang-gi and Song “janus” Jun-hwa will make up the team’s tank duo.
Ado, gido, and janus are the only three members to have previously competed in the Overwatch League, having played for the Shanghai Dragons, the Seoul Dynasty, and the New York Excelsior, respectively. The three players will lead the Justice with their experience, while the rest of the players will join the professional league after having competed in the Overwatch Contenders, the development series for aspiring pros.
Former coach for the New York Excelsior Kim “WizardHyeong” Hyeong-seok will serve as the team’s head coach. WizardHyeong carries an extensive coaching record, helping his former team secure first place in the overall season last year, and he will now seek to lead the Washington Justice to success in Season 2.
The Washington Justice will show off their colors for the first time on stage when they face the NYXL on Day 3 of the Opening Week. Fans can get their tickets to see the team live throughout Season 2 here at AXS.
