Overwatch: Hangzhou Spark Sign Nosmite, Team China Star Guxue

In a Friday evening Tweet, the Hangzhou Spark announced their first signings: frontliners Xu “guxue” Qiulin and Da-un “Nosmite” Jeong.

Guxue is best known for his recent performance with Team China in the Overwatch World Cup, where he proved integral in China’s second-place finish at BlizzCon. His aggressive, intelligent tank play has been acclaimed across the world, and he’s predicted to be one of OWL’s brightest stars next year. He played for Chinese Contenders team LGD Gaming in the last season of Chinese Contenders.

Nosmite hails from X6 gaming, a well-decorated Korean Contenders team. X6 were 2018’s first Contenders champions in Korea, and placed 5th-8th last season. Many X6 players are rumored to be joining Nosmite and Guxue in Hangzhou next year.

Both of these players specialize in main tank positions, but it remains to be seen which will take the starting role in Hangzhou. There’s plenty of off-season left for the Spark to figure things out, but most will no doubt predict the Chinese front-liner to steal the spotlight when OWL 2019 kicks off on Valentine’s Day next year. Stay tuned for more news as it becomes available!
