The ROX Tigers announced their first foray into professional Overwatch and have signed Motiondive's roster. Competing under the ROX banner as the ROX Orcas, the team's Facebook announcement reminded fans of the organization's unique start and aggressive playstyle within League of Legends and said that they chose their Overwatch players with this in mind.

The team's roster will consist of: player and coach Cho "Aloha" Kyung-hoon, team captain Kang "Try" Tae-wook, Cha "Le1gend" Kwang-ho, Chung "Melee" Chang-gyoon, Kim "Daemin" Dae-min and Cho "Guardian" Joon-hwan.

"We want to become a team that touches the hearts of fans with our aggressive and thrilling play," Aloha said. "The name ROX is heavy, but I want to be remembered as a historic team that can measure up to the name of the Tigers. I would like to add to the ROX reputation and become the best team."
