The South Korean Contenders team might be on a year long break, but their spirit is kept.
It's done, one of the most mind-bending transfers of the Overwatch League off-season has been officially announced. Joining the Dallas Fuel, Eui-Seok "Fearless" Lee is the eighth former member of South Korean Contenders team Element Mystic (EM). The player is likely to become the main tank starter for the team in 2021 under the leadership of former EM head coach Hee-won "RUSH" Yun.
The cradle of Dallas Fuel's talent, Element Mystic, recently announced a one-year hiatus from operations. In Dallas Fuel, a significant portion of the team's spirit lives on, with currently two coaches and six players from the org having congregated in the Fuel's 2021 roster. As the team will have to sign at least one more player, with the main support position yet missing, the Fuel could even increase the count with players like Seung-soo "Jecse" Lee and Dong-hyun "Unique" Yoo available on the market. Moreover, the team will likely require another hitscan DPS specialist with Ki-hyo "Xzi" Jung and Hee-su "Heesu" Jeong seemingly still on the market, albeit on a likely heavy buyout. Another possibility is Jung-woo "Happy" Lee who played under the alias "Vesta" during his time in Element Mystic, though an account boosting affair has possibly caused poisoned the water between the participating parties. The Dallas Fuel roster currently looks as follows:
Dallas Fuel Roster
Main tank: Eui-Seok "Fearless" Lee
Off-Tank: Han-been "Hanbin" Choi
