The Philadelphia Fusion are parting ways with Seung-hyun “Ivy” Lee, Jun-ho “Fury” Kim and Su-min “SADO” Kim.
The Philadelphia Fusion was one of the teams who made the fewest roster changes this off-season. The eternal second of the Overwatch League is today parting ways with Seung-hyun “Ivy” Lee, Jun-ho “Fury” Kim and Su-min “SADO” Kim.
One of the friendliest players on Fusion, one of the most ferocious Main Tanks in OWL.
We've made so many memories with @ow_sado over the years, but we knew we would have to say goodbye someday.
We wish you good luck as you move on to the next chapter in your career, Sado! pic.twitter.com/YWfB56e6Pg

The decision to part ways with three iconic players is a surprise to most Philadelphia Fusion’s fans. The team had a good run in the Overwatch League 2020; placing second in all majors tournaments as well as the Regular Season. Despite not winning a single title this year, the Philadelphia Fusion had a solid roster who was getting along. And they had the potential to snatch the Overwatch League 2021 crown.
Unfortunately, the good run the Philadelphia Fusion had during the Regular Season came to a stop early in the Playoffs. The team made it to the Final Four, but didn’t manage to go past the Semifinals.
As the Philadelphia Fusion is parting ways with Ivy, Fury and SADO, the team still has 7 players in its roster. Team captain Jae-hyeok “Carpe” Lee, Josue “Eqo” Corona and Hee-su “Heesu” Jeong will fill the void left by Ivy in the DPS lane. On the tanking line, Dong-gyu “Mano” Kim and Gael “Poko” Gouzerch remain to secure the team. Finally, two support players remain with the Philadelphia Fusion: Daniel “FunnyAstro” Hathaway and Kyung-bo “Alarm” Kim.
