The Washington Justice announced the expansion team's roster on Wednesday.

The team will include tank players Song "Janus" Joon-hwa; flex player Kim "SanSam" Hyang-ki; DPS players Ethan "Stratus" Yankel, Chon "Ado" Gi-hyeon and Corey "Corey" Nigra; and supports Riley "Fahzix" Taylor, Mun "Gido" Gi-do and Cho "Hyeonu" Hyeon-woo.

Janus, whose signing was announced earlier in the offseason, is one of three Justice players with experience in Season 1 of the Overwatch League, having played for the New York Excelsior. The team dubbed Janus "the league's best Reinhardt player" in announcing his addition via Twitter. Despite his team's 0-40 record in Season 1, Ado was a standout DPS for Shanghai Dragons, and Gido joins Washington from the Seoul Dynasty.

The rest of Washington's roster comes from Overwatch Contenders regional leagues. SanSam was an off-tank who played for Meta Athena in South Korea, while Corey competed in North American Contenders from Gladiators Legion. Stratus also played in Contenders, competing for the NRG Esports, the San Francisco Shock's Contenders team, along with Fahzix. Hyeonu joins the Justice after a four-month stint on World Game Star H2; prior to that, he played for Meta Bellum.

Season 2 of the Overwatch League begins Feb. 14.
