It’s hard to picture the esports world without at least mentioning compLexity. Though it’s Overwatch team did enter the esports scene with its fair share of scandal, this US team hasn’t let rumors keep their Mei-game down.

9) Dignitas

Team-Dignitas is a big name with even bigger backers.

8)REUNITED

REUNITED, a player-owned team, came onto the scene in 2016 in Overwatch and Rocket League.

Certainly one of the newer kids-on-the-block, REUNITED steers past the large team owners in favor of the more personal approach by being a player-owned team. Looking to carve out a name for themselves, even with recent lineup shakeups in the Overwatch world, REUNITED is young and hungry. Though they have recently announced that REUNITED would be shutting it's doors, as per twitter they may reform as another team name.

7) Melty Esports

The melty Overwatch saw a quick rise before it was ended.

The esports world is not always kind, and at times our heroes fall. Though melty’s Overwatch team started out with a bang last year, the French-based team has decided to close its doors, citing increased costs as the reason for ending its venture into the esports world.

6) Misfits

Winners of the Overwatch tournament at DreamHack Winter 2016, Misfits is a force to be reckoned with.

Misfits is a proven team of champions. With earnings staggering to the hundred and fifty-one thousand dollar mark and multiple championships won, Misfits is a talented team who shows no signs of stopping.

5) Team Liquid

Team Liquid - defending a legacy.

Forming as a clan in the year 2000, Team Liquid has grown and evolved across nine different games. Liquid gamers are held to a standard, and that continues to be true. Even with the controversy of picking up a banned CS:GO player for their Overwatch team is still formidable.

4) Cloud9

Cloud9 remains strong in the Overwatch esports world.

When Cloud9 set out to venture into the world of Overwatch, they didn’t just go big… they went huge. Instead of recruiting, Cloud9 decided instead to buy the team “Google me”, previously ranked at number one in the North American Region. Cloud9 has taken home over seventy thousand in winnings and is on track to receive even more, even with a few unorthodox hero picks.

3)Fnatic

MLG Las Vegas saw Fnatic domination on day one.

Fnatic is yet another monster of an esports team with big backers behind it. Fnatic gaming is a giant in esports, and its Overwatch team looks to continue that winning legacy. Though Fnatic still has a bit to climb to get to the top, Overwatch is still young with the knowledge base backing the Fnatic team, there’s hope they may get there yet.
