The start of Blizzard’s premiere Overwatch esports league is just around the corner, and the owners of London team need help coming up with a name.
The Overwatch League’s London franchise, owned by Jack Etienne, CEO and co-founder of esports team organization Cloud9, reached out to the world through Cloud9’s Twitter with a link to a survey asking for team name suggestions (which would manifest as London [Team Name]).
Some people replied to the tweet with their suggestions — some are cool and some are a bit off.
The coolest name that seems to be receiving the most suggestions is London Cavalry, a reference to the English Overwatch hero Tracer, whose famous catchphrase is: “The cavalry’s here!”
Others suggested team names that referenced Cloud9, which the London Overwatch League team will be associated with.
And then there are the ones that, well, you know, they tried.

You can submit three different team name suggestions to the London Overwatch League team. There’s no saying they’ll listen to your suggestion, but maybe you can tell your friends that you named an Overwatch team.
