One of the original members of Team Envy’s dominant Overwatch team, and a member of the inaugural Dallas Fuel roster, is returning to action— Timo “Taimou” Kettunen is back in blue.

Taimou gained fame very early in Overwatch’s life span, dominating the game’s beta and first year of competition with his hitscan prowess. That Envy team won early Overwatch esports events like APEX Season One in Korea and MLG’s Vegas event in 2016.

He and much of the Envy roster that became stars in Overwatch’s grassroots competitive stage stayed with the organization and joined the Dallas Fuel for the Overwatch League’s inaugural season.

In the first season of OWL, Dallas struggled and finished with a disappointing record after having high expectations heading into the league. In the 2019 season, a shifting meta and new roster additions saw Taimou’s playing time diminished to just over two hours of in-game time.

Now, Taimou has a chance to regain his former glory with Envy, which basically function’s as Dallas’s minor league team in Overwatch Contenders. If he performs well enough, anything is possible—even a return to the OWL.
