It took a minute after being announced, but the Atlanta team for the Overwatch League have finally picked a name with the Atlanta Reign. The team let the name be known this week on Twitter with an official video hyping the name, along with colors and a proper logo.
All roads lead home.

While the name may throw a few people off, we actually appreciate the logo a lot as having a red bird in the logo is a nice nod to other Atlanta teams such as the Hawks and the Falcons, both of whom use nearly the same shade of red in their team colors. We’re hoping when BlizzCon rolls around, we’ll be able to see more teams reveal their names. But for now, this is a nice start that actually feels like a team that belongs to the city it claims to reside in.
