The Seoul Dynasty are locking down their supports for the 2020 Overwatch League season. The Korean team re-signed Yang “tobi” Jin-mo and promoted Kim “Creative” Young-wan from its Overwatch Contenders team, Gen.G esports, last night.

Tobi signed with the Seoul Dynasty as one of the team’s original six players prior to the league’s inaugural season. After a lackluster first season, the team parted ways with over half of its roster and rebuilt in between seasons. Although their performance failed to pick up much during the regular season this year, the Dynasty reached the season playoffs for the first time after taking down the Philadelphia Fusion and the Guangzhou Charge in the play-in bracket. But Seoul’s playoff run fell short and the team dropped to the Vancouver Titans in the quarterfinals.

Creative joined Gen.G esports in late February and later helped the team secure a shared third-place finish in season one of the Korean Overwatch Contenders 2019. Earlier this month, Gen.G reached the Contenders Gauntlet and locked down fourth place after falling to ATL Academy in the third round of the losers bracket.

Seoul also revealed that they’ve welcomed two new coaches. Former London Spitfire coach Park “changgoon” Chang-geun will fill in as the team’s head coach moving forward, while Mun “MMA” Seong-won, who served as a coach for the Seoul Dynasty’s academy roster, will step up as an assistant coach for the Overwatch League team going into the 2020 season.

Last week, the Korean team welcomed both flex DPS Park “Profit” Joon-yeong and main tank Hong “Gesture” Jae-hee from the London Spitfire. Seoul have yet to part ways with anyone from the team’s season two roster, which leaves them with 13 players in total. Overwatch League rules state teams can have a maximum of 12 players, so fans should expect the Dynasty to announce the departure of at least one player in the weeks to come.
