Los Angeles Valiant 2022 Release List Update
Overwatch League team Los Angeles Valiant just released their new roster for the 2022 season, featuring a host of players from various professional Overwatch teams. However, the Tweet relating to the new roster received mixed reviews from the team’s fans.
The new roster is made up of seasoned pros from previous teams, including:
The team also added a new assistant coach by the name of Xingyou “Haru” Chen, to help bolster the team’s skills and training sessions. While the reveal of a new team to a loyal fan base is usually a source of excitement, this time around there was some skepticism regarding the new team.
Fans liked the team members themselves, as the majority are previously established pros, but the biggest cause for concern was the team composition. Currently, the composition is composed of a Tank, five DPS and two Supports. Fans were quick to point out the major flaws of having an abundant amount of DPS, as opposed to just one meager tank. This means that during a competition, the whole team must rely on a single tank, rather than the usual team composition of two for each class. This leaves the team open to taking a lot more damage, without enough health to absorb it.
Overall though, despite the odd roster, Valiant seem like a bunch of seasoned pros, who seem dedicated and ready to push through the season. Although the roster is not highly rated, there is no denying that the team is certainly qualified enough to have a good chance of winning this season.
