Overwatch League finally gets its first female player


Thanks to Shanghai Dragons’ signing of Kim “Geguri” Se-Yeon, the Overwatch League now has its first female player.

It has taken over a month – the inaugural Overwatch League season started in January 2018 and will run until June – for the 12-team league to acquire its first female player. That situation had raised eyebrows, since Overwatch itself features a decent roster of female Heroes. 

Se-Yeon arrives in the competition as one of four new signings by Shanghai Dragons. She is South Korean, with a win-rate of 80 per cent, and previously played for ROX Orcas in South Korea. 

Shanghai Dragons says that the new draftees address “Core problems” within its team — and it looks like they will be much needed, as the team has failed to register a single series win in the first stage of the Overwatch League.
