Here’s the Overwatch League’s fourth team, the Los Angeles Valiant

The 12 teams of the Overwatch League’s first season is steadily being revealed; now the fourth team has been announced, and they are the Los Angeles Valiant. Much like the previously announced Dallas Fuel and San Francisco Shock, the Valiant team is owned by an established esports organization, this time by Immortals.

Based in the “City of Angels” (LA’s moniker), the Valiant have a gold-winged helmet that’s reminiscent of Overwatch’s resident angel, Mercy. The logo represents both “aggressiveness and protectiveness” according to the team. To complement the gold colored logo, the team also chose green as their other primary color.

“We’re thrilled to unveil the Valiant, L.A.’s newest professional franchise,” said Immortals CEO Noah Whinston. “The opportunity to build a new sporting brand in the entertainment capital of the world is one we do not take lightly, and we thought long and hard about brand elements that would connect our Overwatch League franchise to the core values of Immortals, and to this iconic city. At the same time, we wanted a brand that was strong and distinctive enough to stand on its own and prioritized a brand, colors, and logo that emphasized the commitment to competitive excellence and championships that Los Angeles expects from its teams. We’ve achieved that with ‘Valiant.’ Signifying heroism and demonstrating courage, bravery, and determination — that’s who we are and who we will always strive to be.”

The lineup of the Los Angeles Valiant is yet to be announced. For more information on the team, follow the Valiant’s official Twitter @LAValiant.
