Lunatic-Hai will occupy the roster for Seoul’s Overwatch League team that KSV Esports owns, according to a report by ESPN. The move is pending the finalization of a deal with KSV Esports

If the deal does go through, Lunatic-Hai will relocate rom Seoul to Los Angeles, where the first season of Overwatch League will take place, according to the report. For the following season, Lunatic-Hai would move back to Seoul to represent its city. Seoul was one of the first seven cities awarded an Overwatch League franchise.

The team would be able to compete in Season 4 of OGN APEX, but potential scheduling conflicts could jeopardize Lunatic-Hai’s participation in any further seasons of APEX, according to the report.

 

Lunatic-Hai is largely considered the best Overwatch team in the world, taking home consecutive championships in Seasons 2 and 3 of APEX. Three of its members, Ryu “ryujehong” Je-Hong, Yang “tobi” Jin-mo, and Kim “zunba” Joon Hyuk, are competing in the Overwatch World Cup as representatives of Team South Korea. After a dominating performance at the Katowice Qualifier, South Korea will be invited to Blizzcon for the playoffs.
