Founded in 2017 by a group of old school gaming enthusiasts, Talon Esports is an exciting new organization based in the Greater China area. Headquartered in Hong Kong, Talon aims to provide a supportive platform for players to excel in their professional gaming objectives. Partnering with industry leaders, we will have a focus on producing exciting and informative content to promote Esports throughout the region. “The team was born out of passion for gaming and community, with a desire to be at the forefront of the wave that is competitive e-gaming. We want to be the industry standard in team building and success. Our motto is "Victory through unity." This is a big moment for us.”

Our first foray into the competitive Esports scene will be with Blizzard’s latest title, Overwatch. Talon has signed 4 players formerly of Taiwan’s RRA Esports and 2 additional players from Asia’s top 500. The staff also includes former Luminosity Overwatch coach Mikael Skjønhaug, former RRA Overwatch coach Ben Tien and local team manager Jim Tien.
