LG Evil’s JAKE will look to join Overwatch League team

LG Evil player JAKE will try to play for an Overwatch League team.
JAKE from LG Evil will try to make an Overwatch League team.

Luminosity Gaming Evil Overwatch player Jake “JAKE” Lyon plans to join an Overwatch League team, he wrote Wednesday on Twitter.

“One chapter comes to a close and another begins,” he wrote. “I have no tryout fees nor any restrictions on trialing etc. despite rumors. LG does still own my contract so a buyout will be necessary to move forward on signing.”

JAKE, the DPS for LG Evil, is one of the North America’s most well known Overwatch players. During his time with Luminosity, he helped the team qualify for North America’s Overwatch Contenders Season Zero tournament, though the team narrowly missed out on qualifying for Season 1. JAKE is also a member of Team USA for the Overwatch World Cup. Team U.S.A. qualified went undefeated in the group stage en route to qualifying for the playoffs.

The signing window for Overwatch League runs through Oct. 30. There are nine teams confirmed in the league — and a 10th reported in EnVyUs — and the pool of players is large. Lunatic-Hai’s roster will represent the Seoul team, and LW Blue has withdrawn from OGN APEX in South Korea, reportedly to join Overwatch League.
