Fans are eagerly anticipating the ​newest additions to the Shanghai Dragons, but they will need to wait a bit longer to see the new and improved team. Van, the Shanghai Dragons' manager, ​announced the new players will not arrive in Los Angeles until the middle of Stage 2.

The time consuming ​visa process will delay the arrival of Kim "Geguri" Seyeon, Lee "Fearless" Euiseok, Chon "Ado" Gihyeon, and He "Sky" Junjian. This isn't a ​new problem for professional ​Overwatch players traveling overseas.


The Shanghai Dragons will play with their ​current lineup, which went winless in Stage 1, until the arrival of their new team members. 

It is unknown how long it will take for the Shanghai Dragons to incorporate their newest members into games after they arrive to Los Angeles. 


​​Stage 2 of the Overwatch League begins on Feb. 21, when the Shanghai Dragons play the Dallas Fuel, who recently ​acquired a player from the London Spitfire.
