Mandu didn’t get a chance to shine in the Overwatch League with his former team, the New York Excelsior. The player was underaged most of the season, preventing him to play in the League. When he turned 18, the NYXL roster already found its balance without him. Mandu ended up warming the bench most of the season.
The New York Excelsior, which didn’t manage to go past the 2nd position of the Overwatch League, decided to part ways with most of its roster - including their support player, Mandu. The player didn’t look for a team long, as the Guangzhou Charge is now announcing his addition to their roster.
Since mid-October, the Guangzhou Charge released seven players - including Jin-seo "Shu" Kim, who joined the all-stars roster of the Los Angeles Gladiators. The Guangzhou Charge is building a brand new team. Yesterday, the Guangzhou Charge announced their first 2020 signing: former Los Angeles Valiant and Toronto Defiant main support Young-seo "KariV" Park.
Mandu is joining KariV as the team’s support players. Both players are new additions to the Guangzhou Charge’s backline. They will train with their new teammates, tank players Ki-cheol "Cr0ng" Nam and Seung-pyo "Rio" Oh, as well as flex DPS Ou "Eileen" Yiliang.
