Overwatch League: Boston Uprising Renews Its Team for 2021

Boston Uprising released two players after shifting its coaching staff up.

The Boston Uprising is getting ready for the Overwatch League 2021 Season. First of all, the team reshapes its coaching staff, as Head Coach Vytis “Mineral” Lasaitis moves to a management position. To fill in his role, the Boston Uprising called Seung-hyun “Lori” Kim, former coach of the Eternal Academy and WGS Phoenix.

One of the first decisions from the Boston Uprising’s new Head Coach is to release the two American players from the team. Michael “mikeyy” Konicki and Kobe “Halo” Hamand, respectively playing tank and support heroes, were with the Boston Uprising since the beginning of the year.

Despite giving their best in a somewhat complicated Overwatch League season, the Boston Uprising didn’t manage to qualify for the Grand Finals and finished the regular season in the 20th – out of 20. This last place concludes a shaky season for the Boston Uprising, who now needs to revamp and get ready for 2021.

With the departure of Konicki and Hamand, the Boston Uprising is left with five players on their roster. The team has two DPS and two tank players, but only one support specialist. They now need to find the right players to complete their line-up and forget the Overwatch League 2020 season to focus on 2021.
