The Dallas Fuel have welcomed DPS Kim “Doha” Dong-ha from Contenders Korea heading into the 2020 Overwatch League season.

Doha logged a successful 2019 alongside his former Contenders team, Element Mystic. He joined the roster in November 2018 prior to the start of season three of Overwatch Contenders Korea, in which the team locked down a second place. Element Mystic continued to find success throughout the year, winning the following season and later taking home the trophy from the 2019 Contenders Gauntlet.  

The Dallas Fuel have made only a couple of roster changes since the end of season two. Last month, the Texas-based team traded main tank Son “OGE” Min-seok to the Los Angeles Gladiators in exchange for DPS Jang “Decay” Gui-un. The Fuel then re-filled the role of main tank by welcoming Noh “Gamsu” Young-jin to the roster from the Shanghai Dragons.

With today’s signing of Doha, the Dallas Fuel have topped off their lineup at 12 players. By official league rules, teams can have no more than 12 player signed at a time. Dallas will, however, be able to trade or drop players until the June 15 deadline, according to the league’s website.
