Overwatch League: Mangachu, Adam Signs With the NYXL Organization

Ex-Renegades and Team Canada’s World Cup team player, DPS expert Liam “Mangachu” Campbell along with Ex-Cloud9 and Team USA’s World Cup player, support main Adam “Adam” Eckel have signed with the NYXL organization. But hold on to your horses for now, as they won’t be playing for the main team. Instead, both will be spearheading the New York Excelsior’s Overwatch Contenders team, XL2.

The move was confirmed via the team’s official Twitter account (see above) and both players will be joined by seasoned pros including –

  • Yeon-kwan “Nenne” Jeong – ex- LW Blue
  • Mike “Midnight” Ryan – ex-Rise Nation
  • James “Cloneman16” D’Arcangelo – ex-Kelvin and the Chipmunks
  • Anthony “Goliath” Pietro – ex-Envision esports

XL2 will be competing in Overwatch Contenders against the likes of other ‘Overwatch League academy teams’ such as (Philadelphia) Fusion University and (Los Angeles) Gladiators Legion in the Contenders North America circuit. A glaring omission from the XL2 roster is Korean superstar hitscan player, Yeon-oh “Fl0w3R” Hwang, whom many assumed would be joining NYXL’s academy team since he’s not yet eligible to play in the Overwatch League.

The Overwatch Contenders is the developmental league for the Overwatch League, a scene where aspiring players, or those who fail to land a spot in the big stage compete in an organized, professional setup.

For a better understanding of the progression a.k.a Path to Pro, we have it covered here.
