The Hangzhou Spark welcomes flex tank player Sung-jun "QoQ" Yu from Contenders Korea.


The Hangzhou Spark signs their third tank player for the Overwatch League 2020 Season: Sung-jun "QoQ" Yu.

Yu’s career in Overwatch Contenders: Korea

Yu is joining the Overwatch League for the first time, after three years of playing in the Korean Contenders. He previously played in EHOME Spear alongside Shanghai Dragons’ Se-yeon "Geguri" Kim, before joining MVP Space where he met with Hangzhou Spark’s Gihyeon "Ado" Chon and Florida Mayhem’s Head Coach Dae-kuk "KuKi" Kim.

The tank player achieved his most notable results with two famous teams from the Korean Contenders: RunAway, home of the former Vancouver Titans and many Overwatch League players; and T1, the academy team of Philadelphia Fusion.

With these teams, he won the Korean Overwatch Contenders 2018 Season 3, as well as the 2019 Season 2 and 2020 Season 1. Yu took the second place of the last two editions of the NetEase Esports X Tournament and placed third in the Overwatch Contenders 2019: The Gauntlet.

The beginning of a new chapter

Yu is now joining the Hangzhou Spark to begin his Overwatch League adventure. The team is already home to two tank players: Seong-Wook "Ria" Park and Xu "guxue" Qiulin. Both players have been with the team since late 2018; giving them enough experience to help bring the best out of Yu.
