Late tonight reports began to sift out that the Vancouver franchise was set to sign the entire RunAway roster, and pick up paJion from Fusion University (the academy team for the Philadelphia Fusion who play in Overwatch Contenders) as coach.
This report was further supported by mykL:
As mentioned in the above tweet, nothing official has been announced as of yet so we shall continue to wait with baited breath. If the news is true, this is how the roster would immediately shape up:
- Bumper (Tank/Support)
- Haksal (DPS)
- Stitch (DPS)
- Hooreg (DPS)
- Twilight (Support)
- SLIME (Support)
- JJANU (Flex)
- SeoMinSoo (Flex)
It should also be noted that RunAway won Contenders 2018 Season 2 – Korea by defeating Team KongDoo Panthera, so there is some championship pedigree to this squad.
Do you think this is the correct course for the Vancouver franchise to take? Let us know down in the comments!
