A few days after a stunning exit from Stage 1 of Overwatch League, the Seoul Dynasty tweaked its roster with the addition of Yoon-ho "Bubbly" Cho as a coach, the team announced Tuesday.

Seoul was one of the favored teams starting out in the Overwatch League, with DPS extraordinaire Byung-sun "Fleta" Kim leading the charge and support player Je-Hong "ryujehong" Ryu. It came as a shock when the Dynasty had a rough end to Stage 1. With a 3-0 loss against the Los Angeles Valiant, Seoul lost its shot at the Stage 1 playoffs and ended up in fifth place.


Those last matches pulled back the curtains on the Dynasty's issues, namely that its supports were not protected and were constantly getting picked. The DPS players would make large gains, but their support line would constantly get picked apart, and overall the team lacked longevity in crucial team fights.


In an effort to potentially address these issues, Seoul added Bubbly, formerly of Team KongDoo Uncia; as a coach. Bubbly has been a flexible support player since the Nexus Cup's beginning, and he participated in three seasons of OGN APEX as a player. 


Bubbly started coaching in the fourth season of APEX. With a unique perspective of being both a player and a coach, he might be what the Dynasty need to boost its confidence after Stage 1.
