The Toronto Defiant have slowly been constructing its roster for the 2021 Overwatch League season, and now it has added Soon-jae “ANSOONJAE” An to that lineup.
ANSOONJAE joins the team as one of the main support players on a roster that is rebuilding after a disappointing 2020 campaign.
Following Element Mystic going inactive in Overwatch Contenders, many players on the roster began discussing deals with new teams for 2021. ANSOONJAE is the third player to leave the Mystic lineup to join an OWL team for the upcoming season.
This will be ANSOONJAE’s first time competing in OWL after spending the last two years in Contenders with various rosters.
He is also the third player that the Defiant have signed for its new roster, joining support player Jeong-su “Aztac” Park and tank Adam “Beast” Denton. Beast actually rejoined the team after spending October with the American Tornado Contenders roster.
The team is looking to build around Andreas “Logix” Berghmans and bounce back from the 15th place finish in the 2020 regular season. Defiant finished tied for ninth in the North American playoffs in the previous season and wants to continue improving from there.
