OGN Overwatch APEX season two champions Lunatic-Hai are welcoming two new players to their roster.
Lunatic-Hai’s starting lineup will stay as is, with Kim “EscA” In-jae and Lee “Whoru” Seung Joon on DPS, Kim “zunba” Joon Hyuk as flex tank, Gong “Miro” Jin-hyuk on tank, and Ryu “Ryujehong” Je-hong and Yang “tobi” Jin-mo as support. Two former Rhinos Gaming players, DPS Byeon “Munchkin” Sang-Beom and flex Lee “claris” Keon-Ho, will step into the alternate positions.
Having two extra players is becoming increasingly common in South Korean Overwatch, allowing teams to adapt their play styles according to meta changes. It’s not new for Lunatic-Hai, either: Last season, the team started the Overwatch APEX with eight players before dropping down to six after a public scandal.
Both Munchkin and claris will likely come in handy during Overwatch APEX season three, as the tournament organizers have reportedly implemented a new rule that allows a single player rotation during a series. This will allow teams participating in the tournament to adjust their roster and composition in accordance with map picks and opponent, now, too.
OGN Overwatch APEX season three begins April 28 with Lunatic-Hai versus KongDoo Panthera and RunAway versus Afreeca Freecs Blue.
