On Tuesday, the LA Gladiators announced Chan-hyung "Fissure" Baekas as the newest member of their Overwatch League roster.
The news was reported earlier this month by Jacob Wolf, but it has now been made official.
The Gladiators were 4-6 in Stage 1 and were obviously unhappy with their results. They showed flashes of greatness, but the team clearly needed help. Fissure is a former London Spitfire tank that has plenty of experience from playing with KongDoo Panthera.
Most wondered why Cloud9 acquired so many talented Koreans when London Spitfire was first formed, but situations like this clearly show the benefit. Now, London is able to sell player's contracts at a higher price.
David “dpei” Pei, Gladiators' head coach had this to say, “Fissure is incredibly talented and knows what it means to be at the top. We think he will be a great addition to our team, and we're really excited to have him on the Gladiators."
