Dallas Fuel has added another new player to its Overwatch League roster in preparation for the upcoming season. 

Finnish tank player Richard “rCk” Kanerva has signed a two-year contract with Dallas Fuel, the organization announced earlier today. He’s now the ninth player to sign with the Fuel for 2019, joining recently-acquired South Korean support Jung “Closer” Won-sik, who Dallas signed in October.


“RCk put together a great track record and highlight reel during Overwatch Contenders these last two seasons,” said Dallas Fuel head coach Aaron “Aero” Atkins. “We can tell from scrims he’s a leader and a personality that match with what we’re building at the Dallas Fuel.”

Dallas acquired the offtank specialist from Team Gigantti, an EU Overwatch Contenders team. RCk, who can also play flex, is set to move from Finland to Los Angeles “in the coming months,” according to Dallas Fuel.
