Name, Logo, and Colors revealed for Overwatch League's Chengdu Based Team

Last night's major eSports announcement saw the Chengdu Hunters join the Overwatch League in 2019 as China's second new entry.

The Overwatch League 2019 is really starting to heat up as more and more teams get unveiled to the public. We recently saw The Guangzhou Charge added to the roster sporting a smooth blue uniform. Today, we get to see a second Chinese side’s name, colors, and logo in the form of the Chengdu Hunters.

The Chengdu Hunters, which was revealed last night, will be seen sporting light orange outfits almost bordering on yellow. There are patches of black dotted throughout which adds a sense of depth to the look.

The team will be represented by a logo sporting a giant panda. The image shows a bemused animal with an intimidating expression. Usually seen on an orange background, the panda doesn’t feature an outline, instead its attributes such as its ears and nose are presented in a thick black coloring. Its white eyes seem piercing thanks to their darkened surroundings. The beast’s chin is then seen in both black and a light grey to complete the image.

The lettering on the logo is simple yet effective with the city’s name printed in orange and the word “Hunters” in bold, black font with sharpened edges. The T acts as a centerpiece and strikes downwards into a knifepoint. You can take a look at the Chengdu Hunters’ style in the image below.

The Chengdu Hunters will be joining teams from Paris, Toronto, and Atlanta as part of the 2019 Overwatch Leagues’ slew of new teams. The league is set to kick off on February 14, 2019.

Overwatch is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. You can pick up a copy of the title on Amazon.
