Former 2017 DreamHack Montreal Overwatch champions announced their comeback to the pro scene for the 2018 season.
The team’s roster will be different from their championship lineup last year, and will debut in the Overwatch BEAT Invitational scheduled February 4.
EnVision’s roster is composed of flex-tank and team captain Caleb “McGravy” McGarvy, main tank Bryan “iShiny” McCarthy, DPS players Jason “Jaru” White and Casey “buds” McIlwaine, and supports Anthony “Fire” King and William “Crimzo” Hernandez. Robert “Roflgator” Malecki will be the team’s head coach while Elbion will serve as their analyst.
McGarvy, Jaru and Fire are veterans to EnVisions, who led the team. They are with Jani “Tseini” Kähkönen, Seb “numlocked” Barton and Riley “Fahzix” Taylor to triumph in DreamHack Montreal. Roflgator has been coach for top tier organizations Fnatic and Tempo Storm Overwatch rosters before seeking home in EnVision.EnVision will be rivaling against Philadelphia Fusion’s academy team Fusion University, Kungarna, OWLMP, LCG Overwatch, The Savages, Chicken Ranch Pizza and No Clout in the Overwatch BEAT Invitational’s third season: an online Overwatch league hosted by BEAT Gaming. The tournament will start on February 4 and will continue until February 6.
EnVision made its first appearance on the Overwatch BEAT Invitational 2017 together with FNRGFE. This comes after replacing Evil Geniuses, who dropped their entire roster, and Cloud9, who had prior commitment. They finished 5th-6th in the tournament, winning a close game against Luminosity Gaming Evil in the Quarterfinals 3-2. Unfortunately, the team lost to Immortals in the semifinals 3-0. They then achieved redemption after emerging champions on DreamHack Montreal 2017, toppling Mirage Sport Electronique in a 3-0 finals match.
EnVision is looking to impress in the Overwatch Contenders North American tournament with the goal of landing a slot in the second season of the Overwatch League, team owner Artur Minacov said in a statement.
