Overwatch League: Numlocked Joins Toronto Defiant

Toronto Defiant signs Seb “numlocked” Barton as the team’s new main tank.


Seb “numlocked” Barton, former Los Angeles Valiant and Montreal Rebellion player, gets back in the Overwatch League with Toronto Defiant.

Today isn’t the first day of Barton’s adventure in the Overwatch League. He played with Los Angeles Valiant between 2017 and 2018, placing second in the Overwatch League Inaugural Season. Here, he finished the Playoffs in Semifinals.

After his Overwatch League time, Barton played in Contenders with various academy teams, such as British Hurricane (London Spitfire), Team Envy (Dallas Fuel), and more recently Montreal Rebellion (Toronto Defiant).

With each of his teams, Barton performed well. He won the DreamHack Montreal with EnVision eSports, placed second in the Overwatch League with Los Angeles Valiant and in the Overwatch Contenders 2019 Season 1 Europe with British Hurricane, and won the Overwatch Contenders 2019 Season 2 North America West with Team Envy.

Less than a month after Barton joined Montreal Rebellion, the team disbanded, ending its Contenders’ presence. Luckily for Barton, he didn’t stay long without a team. Toronto Defiant, who owned Montreal Rebellion, hired him as the team’s new main tank.

Toronto Defiant already has two other tank players: Adam “Beast” Denton and Andreas “Nevix” Karlsson. Denton is the current main tank of the roster. This means Barton will probably stay on the bench unless Denton needs some rest or doesn’t master a team composition as well as Barton.
