Both Dallas Fuel and London Spitfire have bolstered their rosters with new tank players.
Hwang “T1zi” Jang-hyun, a former RunAway and Rhinos Gaming Wings player, will join London Spitfire, while former CONBOX player Son “OGE” Min-seok will join Dallas Fuel. Both signings were announced on Twitter on March 8.
“With my former team, RunAway, my objective was to win every final,” T1zi said in a statement. “But we took second place three times. Taking first place remains my goal, and I will do my best to achieve it in the Overwatch League with London Spitfire.”
With RunAway, T1zi placed second in the Overwatch APAC Premier 2017, OGN Overwatch Apex season four, and the Summer Nexus Cup in 2017. With Rhinos Gaming Wings, he placed second in the Overwatch Apex Challengers season three. If he’s looking for gold, he chose well: London Spitfire recently took first in the Overwatch League’s stage one championship.
OGE enters the Overwatch League with one of the more tumultuous teams. Dallas Fuel, once global champions as Team Envy, sit in 10th place in the overall Overwatch League standings. The roster’s had its fair share of controversy, too—most recently with bad behavior from tank player Félix “xQc” Lengyel and flex player Timo “Taimou” Kettunen. OGE will take up tank duties alongside xQc, Mickie, Cocco, and Taimou; they’re looking to regain the synergy they had in their early days.
The new Dallas Fuel tank player likely won’t start playing until Overwatch League’s third stage, the organization said.
