ROX Orcas are no more a part of ever-growing Overwatch scene. After they had disastrous finish in the fourth season of OGN’s Overwatch Apex, ROX Orcas team was disbanded, and released from the organization. ROX ORCAS managed the Overwatch team for about 8 months since the team’s intrduction to the esports industry back in January. ROX ORCAS progressed to the first-division from APEX Challengers, and by having scouted Seyeon “Geguri” Kim, the player who’s known as a Zarya master. However, although things looked promising, the team was unable to snatch up even one victory, finishing last in the group, unable to qualify for the next season of Overwatch Apex. Players now do not have a contract, and they are considered as free agents. The team promised that they will undergo a process of rebuilding and told that they will keep fans up to date with any key news about the team’s organization in the near future.
A word more about the team and key player
ROX Orcas are part of ROX organization, which is most known by its League of Legends team, named ROX Tigers. They were created on January 13. 2017 and disbanded on September 18. They had potential, they were good players individually, but as it seems, they failed as a team. An interesting fact is that they had a female member, Kim “Geguri” Seyon, becoming a first woman to compete in such as one of the most powerful and prestigious tournaments Overwatch has.
Geguri made quite a show last year when she was accused of cheating, rather aimhacking. She was so good, that most of the spectators could not believe that can be performed by a human. Of course, she proved herself as a professional player, by having her live game monitored and streamed and like that she has proved her talent and insane skill with Zarya. Having attracted some positive attention on herself, she moved to ROX Orcas, after she could not compete for a move to team EHOME Spear, which has disbanded earlier as well. Despite the promotion and build up, Geguri and her new team, unfortunately, failed to achieve much in organized team play, making absolutely nothing on the professional scene. But it seems that she is talented, good player, but that she just did not have some luck to make it to the headlines. What will future bring to her, it remains for us to see.
Final thoughts and statement on team and its future
The announcement that was published on Sunday, said , among the other things that the team was given a chance to compete on OGN Apex because they worked really hard almost whole year in process to prepare themselves for the competition and that they could not deny players to participate in Apex, although talks about the players futures and team management have been stared before competition. The announcement, also said that the team must undergo a team rebuilding and enhance the overall process, and they promised to the keep in touch with fans in the matter of any news about the team organization in the future.
