Team Summary 

To build their team, the Toronto Defiant went with an all-Korean roster built from the backbone of O2 Team from Contenders. With this choice, they have a built-in level of team cohesion that could stand out against the other new expansion teams. Aid, a former GGEA Academy and GC Busan support, is absolutely one player to watch. Other notable signings include former Boston Uprising flex support Neko and former LA Valiant offtank Envy.
