The Atlanta Reign announced they have signed Overwatch standout Hugo “SharP” Sahlberg to the team’s Overwatch League.

As a member of Team Envy, SharP brought success to the team in 2019 after helping them win the North America West region of Overwatch Contenders during both seasons, while also helping them take home second place in the Atlantic Showdown and finding success in the lower bracket finals of the Contenders Gauntlet in South Korea.

Team Envy has sent a handful of players to the Overwatch League thanks in large part to the team’s success in the Contenders scene. P

layers such as Elliot “ELLIVOTE” Vaneryd and Lukas “LullSiSH” Wiklund were acquired by the Washington Justice shortly after the second season of the Overwatch League, while Ashley “Trill” Powell was also signed by the Dallas Fuel earlier this year.

Atlanta Reign is clearly trying to make a mark in the DPS scene in 2020 after also adding Kim “Edison” Tae-hoon shortly before the announcement of SharP to the team and the two will join the ranks next to Jeong “ErsTer” Joon and Andrej “babybay” Francisty.

Though the team has released former Hitscan DPS player Ilya “NLaaeR” Koppalov from the team, the Reign now has 10 players officially signed for the upcoming season, four of which are DPS players, with the potential for more to come, indicating expectations for a successful 2020 season.

Head coach Brad “Sephy” Rajani will continue to lead the team next year, a coach whom many consider to be one of the best in the league, as they host two contests during the 2020 Overwatch League season.

With their completed roster,  Atlanta Reign will be movingn forward as part of a newly-announced Atlanta Esports Alliance.
