According to a social media post from Valiant on December 1st, they have confirmed that LinGan Esports (LGE), a Chinese company that previously ran teams such as LGE.Huya, will continue operating the team next year. LGE signed a one-year operating agreement in early 2021 after the Valiant’s ownership group, Immortals Gaming Club (IGC), decided to move the franchise to China and participate in the Overwatch League’s East Divison.
The Valiant also confirmed that they will remain in the East Division, also known as the Asia-Pacific region of the league. This means that they’ll play alongside other teams based in Asia, including the 2021 champions, the Shanghai Dragons.
The Los Angeles Valiant was the only team in the Overwatch League to go winless over the course of the 2021 season, ending with a 0-16 record.
No official word has been given by the Valiant on the status of its previous roster. The league’s Player Contract Status Update list states that the players have expired contracts heading into 2022. As a result, Los Angeles will likely be signing an entirely new roster.
