Overwatch League: San Francisco Shock Trades Moth to the Los Angeles Gladiators

The San Francisco Shock is saying goodbye to their main support player, Grant “moth” Espe.

Overwatch League back-to-back Champion San Francisco Shock parts ways with one of its iconic players, Grant “moth” Espe. The main support player is joining the Los Angeles Gladiators for the Overwatch League 2021 Season.

The main support player joined the San Francisco Shock back in 2018. Moth and his teammates managed not only to win the Overwatch League 2019 Grand Finals, but also the 2020 ones – making San Francisco Shock the first-ever team to be back-to-back Champion.

Today, Moth is joining the brand new roster of the Los Angeles Gladiators. The team recently dropped six players before signing some of the most successful players in the Overwatch League.

The Los Angeles Gladiators now have one of the most promising rosters of the Overwatch League 2021 season. As the main DPS of the team, the Los Angeles Gladiators can count on Overwatch League Inaugural Season Champion Ji-hyeok “birdring” Kim, as well as Overwatch Contenders 2020 Season 1 North America Champion Kevin “kevster” Persson. Overwatch World Cup 2019 Champion Indy “SPACE” Halpern is holding the tanking line with Overwatch Contenders 2019 Korea Season 1 and 2 champion Young-hun “MuZe” Kim.

Moth, back-to-back Grand Champion of the Overwatch League, is now joining Overwatch League 2020 Countdown Cup Champion Jin-seo “Shu” Kim as the support players of the team.

The team can also rely on one of the most versatile player in the Overwatch League: Gia Huy “MirroR” Trịnh. MirroR is one of the only players able to perform competitively on all three major roles: tank, support and DPS.

With the addition of Moth to their already stacked roster, the Los Angeles Gladiators prove once again its determination to win the 2021 edition of the Overwatch League.
