Yesterday, the Seoul Dynasty made some moves with their roster. After signing Fissure a few weeks before, they now had to release some of their squad. Here are the details.
At their inception, the Dynasty were the favorites to with the inaugural season of the Overwatch League. Built upon legendary team Lunatic Hai with star power like Ryujehong, Tobi, and Zunba, they were expected to be the best. However, meta shifts and unfortunate losses led them to a bottom 3 finish in the first season. Looking to reclaim their glory, the Dynasty have signed “most handsome” main tank Fissure as well as numerous members of Contenders team Lucky Future Zenith. Will this be the start of their redemption arc?
