Trill, who has been promoted from Team Envy's Overwatch Contenders roster, joins the roster as a tank player. He joins Minseok "OGE" Son as tank players ahead of the team's Stage 2 playoff match against the Vancouver Titans, reigning Stage 1 champions.
"Today we are thrilled to announce that Team Envy’s very own Ashley “Trill” Powell will be promoted from our Contenders team to the Overwatch League, joining the Dallas Fuel roster as a tank player. Trill is in the process of relocating to Los Angeles and will join the Fuel for Stage Three of the Overwatch League regular season," the organization said in an announcement.
The Australian helped Team Envy to an undefeated Overwatch Contenders season in NA West. The team then defeated NRG Esports and ATL Academy, the San Francisco Shock's and Atlanta Reign's Contenders' teams, en route to an $80,000 grand prize. Envy's finish also guaranteed it a spot at the Overwatch Contenders Atlantic Showdown event.
Trill played for Team Australia at the most recent Overwatch World Cup, helping the team to a top eight finish before getting knocked out by eventual champions South Korea.
