Team YP Announces all-new Overwatch Team
After a couple quiet months, Team YP has new players in place and is ready for competition. We are excited to finally announce the new line-up.
NEW YORK, N.Y (Feb. 15, 2017) – Hard to believe all the changes that can happen over the course of a few months. The Overwatch league went through a big re-structure, and Valmaster is now on Team YP Overwatch. Yep, you read that right…OVERWATCH. VALMASTER.
You may have heard rumors, but we are excited to finally (& officially) announce that not only will Valmaster continue his career with Team YP – Street Fighter IV, he has also decided to pursue a career in Overwatch with Team YP. He will be playing alongside Nightwane- Team YP veteran, who will continue to lead the crew as captain of the team. We are also thrilled to announce that Team YP signed several other new players to the Overwatch Team.
Joining Nightwane and Valmaster on Team YP Overwatch is Hajaxa, who made it to the top 20 leader board playing Evolve since the Big Alpha. His Evolve teammate, Ninaa, will also be joining Team YP. Like Hajaxa, Ninaa also reached the top 20 leaderboard. Playing Overwatch since its beta version and already a top player in the French leader board, Team YP is happy to have Jose Carlos Abreu- AKA Yoshi, on-board. Last but certainly not least, joining our Overwatch line up is previous Titanfall EU player and veteran, Osnazeni who has recently started playing in Overwatch tournaments but is already showing incredible potential.
“Although it took a little longer than anticipated, we are thrilled to finally be able to announce the new team” said Brad Burns, VP of YouPorn. The team has will be participating in their first tournament- Montpellier ESports Show, together on Feb 25 & 26. “We’ve seen how strong they are in their day-to-day and that makes it easy for us to have all the confidence in the world in them” Burns continued, “but we absolutely cannot wait to see what they do in this tournament.”
