AVRL To Cast the 2021 Overwatch League Alongside Achilios
The cat’s out of the bag: Seth “Achilios” King will not only return to cast the 2021 season of the Overwatch League, but he’ll also have a brand-new partner by his side: Kevin “AVRL” Walker! Not seeing him next to Wolf Schröder will definitely take some getting used to, but it’s fair to say that this duo definitely has a lot of potential!
AVRL’s Overwatch League Debut
Now, to those who’ve watched the Overwatch Contenders series, AVRL will definitely ring a bell. Still, getting promoted to the Overwatch League — the place where the “big boys and gals” reside — is undoubtedly the ultimate goal of everyone who’s in the casting business. That’s where the biggest and most jaw-dropping matches tend to happen — on the biggest of stages and with the most spectators, to boot!
This New Zealand native has certainly put in the work over the last couple of years and is more than worthy of the promotion. Plus, he has a metric ton of knowledge about the APAC region (much like his upcoming casting partner Achilion), so he’s the perfect man for the job. This peculiar casting duo will bring us all the action starting on April 17. If you need a refresher on the upcoming format changes, we’ve got you covered! All in all, Blizzard made all the right moves coming into 2021 as far as the overall schedule is concerned. Now all that’s left is for us to see whether they’ve managed to correct course and, by proxy, salvage a seemingly sinking ship, or if this is all a case of “too little, too late.”
We are less than two weeks away from the 2021 season of the Overwatch League which means Blizzard is all but guaranteed to announce the rest of the broadcast team beyond AVRL in a more official manner over the coming days! As always, we’ll bring you the details from the moment they hit the web!
