Before the first stage of the Overwatch League concludes, the Seoul Dynasty is looking to bolster their success by adding two additional players to their roster.
Over the weekend, the Dynasty acquired Park “ILLICIT” Jae-min and Lee “Highly” Sung-hyeok.
Both are former members of teams from Contenders Korea. ILLICIT is a projectile DPS specialist and a former member of BlossoM. BlossoM fell out of contention in Contenders Korea Season 3 and was sent back to Trials to re-qualify. Highly is a flex support player with experience on Ana, Zenyatta, and Sombra. He was a part of O2 Blast, formerly known as O2 Ardent, which tied for last place in Contenders Korea Season 3.
While both of these players come from Overwatch Contenders teams with lukewarm results, their individual talent has obviously impressed scouts. ILLICIT and Highly have also recently turned 18, meaning they are eligible to play in the Overwatch League. Their signings may bring some concern to fans of current flex DPS specialist Kim “Fleta” Byung-sun and flex support Ryu “Ryujehong” Je-hong, considering substitutions have been the norm this season.
These signings likely come as a result of the team’s lackluster placements thus far in Stage 1. The Seoul Dynasty is currently ranked 13th out of the 20 teams in the league and have not yet secured a playoff spot for this stage.
