KSV Esports’ Overwatch League franchise will be called the Seoul Dynasty

The Seoul Dynasty is the latest Overwatch League franchise

The Overwatch League franchise owned by KSV Esports will be called the Seoul Dynasty, the organization announced Thursday.

“We put a lot of thought in choosing the right name to represent Seoul, and its place in history as the birthplace of modern day esports,” KSV Esports founder Kevin Chou said in an announcement video. “I believe the best players, coaches, and fans in the world are wight here in Seoul, and I hope our team’s performance will make you proud.”

The nickname “Dynasty” was chosen to pay homage to the Chosun dynasty in Korean history (which made Seoul its capital), and to represent the goal of the roster to become a sports dynasty itself. The logo is a tiger, which is closely tied to Korean mythology as a sacred animal, along with the colors black and gold, the colors of royalty in Korean history.

The team’s custom skin fittingly belongs to D.Va, the only Korean hero in Overwatch. The skin swaps out D.Va’s primary colors with black and gold and displays the team’s logo on the front of the mecha.

Six of the 12 teams competing in Season 1 of Overwatch League have announced their brands, as the Dynasty follows the Shanghai DragonsDallas Fuel, San Francisco Shock, Los Angeles Valiant and Boston Uprising.
