Off-tank player Alexandre "SPREE" Vanhomwegen is leaving the Houston Outlaws and is now a free agent.


Three years after joining the Houston Outlaws for the Overwatch League Inaugural Season, Alexandre "SPREE" Vanhomwegen and the team mutually part ways.

Vanhomwegen joined the Houston Outlaws in October 2017, as the Overwatch League Inaugural Season was about to start. Even if the Outlaws never managed to reach the Top 4 places of the Overwatch League, Vanhomwegen managed to make a name for himself. His skills on Zarya led to the creation of a nickname for his favorite map: Spree’s Row, as a contraction of Spree, the player’s name, and King’s Row, the name of the map.

While this move may upset some of the Houston Outlaws’ fans, it was not unexpected. Vanhomwegen warmed the bench the entire season, not playing a single map in the Overwatch League this year. The Houston Outlaws preferred picking Tae-hong "MekO" Kim in their games, giving Vanhomwegen little to no place to develop.

In a TwitLonger, Vanhomwegen shares his goodbyes to the Houston Outlaws. “My goal has always been to go for more playtime, said the player. During the time on the bench I've spent a lot of time to work and reflect on myself". Vanhomwegen is now a free agent and is looking for a team to keep on playing Overwatch professionally.
