Overwatch: Dallas Fuel Releases Multiple Players And Coaches

A storm is brewing in Texas as Envy’s official Overwatch Team goes through some organizational changes.

The Dallas Fuel announced on Monday, August 3 that they released Gui-un “Decay” Jun from his contract. Team owner Mike “hastr0” Rufail took to Twitter. He explained that Decay refused to practice. This is not the first Korean Overwatch player to leave the Dallas Fuel in some capacity.

Next, Dallas released Aaron “Aero” Atkins as head coach. The Fuel also released Louis “Tikatee” Lebel-Wong as an assistant coach at the same time.

Finally, on Wednesday, August 5, The Texan team released Jonathan ”HarryHook” Tejedor Rua for player misconduct. This was due to misogynistic Discord messages that were screen-capped and posted to Twitter. Incidentally, HarryHook was gone an hour later.

All this leads fans to believe something is wrong in the Lone Star State. They may be going for a drastic rebuild of some sort, as it's not normal to see so many people leave an organization so quickly. So far, there is no official word as to what that may be though. Either way, the Fuel will have a lot of work to do to reassemble a competitive roster.
