Team Summary

Built on the existing NRG roster and filled with star power, the San Francisco Shock had dreams of dominating OWL’s first season. With a 7th place finish, it wasn’t the outcome they expected. Beyond that number, however, they showed promise with DPS stars sinatraa, Babybay, and mid-season pickups Architect and off-tank ChoiHyoBin. Going into the second season, the Shock have made some impressive roster improvements. They’ve upgraded former Spitfire DPS Rascal to their full roster and gained GGEA tank smurf.
