In the latest development during the Overwatch League off-season, Paris Eternal have announced the following players will continue on with the team next year:
- Benjamin "BenBest" Dieulafait
- Nicolas "NiCOgdh" Moret
- Luís "Greyy" Perestrelo
- Harrison "Kruise" Pond
- Damien "HyP" Souville
- Terence "SoOn" Tarlier
These are all of the players left after changes by Paris Eternal last week that saw four depart including George "ShaDowBurn" Gushcha and Finnbjörn "Finnsi" Jónasson.
A week ago, Paris Eternal announced the signing of Element Mystic tank and DPS players Han-been "Hanbin" Choi and Ki-hyo "Xzi" Jung as well as their teammate Yeong-han "Sp9rk1e" Kim, one of the most desirable prospects from the last Overwatch Contenders season at only 17 years old.
With the confirmation of ten players on their roster, Paris Eternal look set for the 2020 Overwatch League season in the server.
Beyond this, multiple new coaching staff have been brought in to Paris Eternal. Also hailing from Element Mystic is Hee-won "Rush" Yun, while Jaeyoon "Aid" Go and Chung-Hyeok "Levi" Jeong will complete the trio of new coaches added at the same time as the aforementioned young talent.
The 2020 Overwatch League will see the twenty teams split across four Divisions, with each team hosting homestand games throughout the season in their namesake cities. This change in format sees the teams split into conferences as well as a regional divison based on their location. Teams will have their own venue confirmed before the first games which will play host to games as well as use as a base for players.
Paris Eternal are in the Atlantic Conference's North Division alongside Boston Uprising, London Spitfire, New York Excelsior and Toronto Defiant.
The first opportunity for Paris Eternal fans to watch their team play will be the 11-12th April weekend as the Overwatch action heads to Zénith de Paris.
Tickets for that weekend, as well as 9-10th May and 13-14th June, go on sale tomorrow on the Paris Eternal ticket website.
