Amidst a pool of want-to-be pro-scene  players and coaches, rise two very prominent coaches that joined the Soesic eSports Overwatch Division. Meet Armando ‘Gmando’ Zepeda, and Eddie ‘Munk’ Hernandez, the heads of the Overwatch Division, and future big names in the professional competitive scene.

 

Zepeda has a history of being a coach for a multitude of different sports such as rock climbing and parkour. His passion for coaching and his love for Overwatch drove him to find some options for coaching positions with the games community. After talking a while with Zack (CEO) of Soesic eSports, Zepeda was brought on as the COO of the Soesic eSports Overwatch Division.

 

Hernandez, like Zepeda has a lot of coaching experience under his belt. While he may not have a lot of gaming experience, he overwhelmingly makes up for it for his raw coaching prowess and his ability to interact with both the players and the other areas of management.

 

So far with the Overwatch team, there are four members currently on the roster, with plans on adding another four in order to round the roster out.

 

When I asked Zepeda and Hernandez about their plans for upcoming tournaments, they said that they plan on competing in the Overwatch Open League. They said that some of the teams that they were scrimming against, were beaten very easily. What we look for in a team, when we are doing tryouts is resilience, and being able to recover from a deficit.

 

Once they join the Open Division, if they end in the top 4 of the league, they have a chance to join the Overwatch Contenders. They would have to go into a series of matches called the Trials, and will be going against the Open Division top 4, and the Contenders’ 4 lowest placed team from the last season of Contenders. If they come through that, then Soesic eSports will have made its way to be playing against teams such as London Spitfires’ ‘British Hurricane’ Academy Team.

 

The Prize Pool for the 2019 season 4 of Open Division has not been revealed yet, but hopefully Soesic eSports will make a name for itself far beyond a small prize-pool.

 

Zepeda and Hernandez both want to have their roster be able to stream or record gameplay for entertainment, practice (VOD reviews), and for content for the community that will likely follow in the wake of the Soesic eSports hype train.
