Seoul Dynasty support player Heo “Gambler” Jin-woo has retired from the Overwatch League team’s active roster. He’ll remain with the organization as a streamer, team owner Gen. G announced in a statement on Twitter.

“Gambler will be retiring as an active player of Seoul Dynasty and becoming a professional streamer with Gen. G,” the post stated. “We thank him for being with us during the Overwatch League season. We wish him luck with his career as a streamer.”

Gambler joined the Seoul Dynasty roster in late February. Though the team already had three support players—Ryu “ryujehong” Je-hong, Yang “tobi” Jin-mo, and Moon “Gido” Gi-do—he joined to bolster the team’s Mercy play. Gambler previously played for BlossoM and LW Red.

Seoul Dynasty struggled in the Overwatch League’s first season, unable to maintain the legacy the roster had established in South Korea as Lunatic Hai. Seoul Dynasty ended season one is eighth place. Gen. G has been one of the more active owners in the Overwatch League’s off-season as it begins to adjust the roster for next season. In August, the organization added former London Spitfire tank player Baek “Fissure” Chan-hyung to the roster.

The team’s coaching staff underwent a major overhaul, too. The team parted ways with former general manager Baek Kwang-jin and coaches Chae “alwaysoov” Ho-jeong, Kim Yo-han, and Cho Yoon-ho in July. Lee “Hocury” Ho-chul has been promoted to general manager, with two new coaches joining the organization: Kim “KDG” Dong-gun and Park “Changgoon” Chang-guen.

The Overwatch League’s trade window for current Contenders and Overwatch League players is open. On Sept. 9, the trade window opens for free agents.
