Overwatch League: Toronto Defiant Drops Ten Players

The Toronto Defiant releases ten players, leaving only Andreas “Logix” Berghmans on the roster.

The Toronto Defiant is parting ways with Andreas “Nevix” Karlsson, Thomas “zYKK” Hosono, Harrison “Kruise” Pond, Brady “Agilities” Girardi, Seb “numlocked” Barton, Lane “Surefour” Roberts, Julian “BEAST” Lauandos, Liam “Mangachu” Campbell, Joo-seong “RoKy” Park and Young-seo “KariV” Park.

The recent days have been busy for the Overwatch League roster moves. Teams are releasing players every day, and sometimes even several at once. Today, the Toronto Defiant is setting a new record: the team is releasing not three or five, but ten players – everyone but Andreas “Logix” Berghmans.

Will Berghmans also part ways with the Toronto Defiant? According to the Overwatch League 2021 player contract status, his existing contract with the team is expiring. This means Berghmans is a free agent, able to sign either with the Toronto Defiant for another season or with any other Overwatch League team.

The Toronto Defiant had a complicated run in the Overwatch League 2020 Season. Following a disappointing 2019 Season, the team started off the new year with a brand new roster. However, despite signing a mix of experienced players and talented rookies, the team didn’t manage to rise from its ashes. The Toronto Defiant ended the season in the 15th position, out of 20.

Julian “BEAST” Lauandos, Brady “Agilities” Girardi, Harrison “Kruise” Pond and Seb “numlocked” Barton all declared looking for a team for the upcoming Overwatch League season. Liam “Mangachu” Campbell, Thomas “zYKK” Hosono, Andreas “Nevix” Karlsson, Lane “Surefour” Roberts, Joo-seong “RoKy” Park and Young-seo “KariV” Park didn’t yet reveal their plans for 2021.
