The Vancouver Titans say goodbye to three players while resigning three others.
The Vancouver Titans are used to off-season full roster change. The team dropped its entire roster back in May, to climb back in the Overwatch League with a brand new roster. This strategy didn’t pay off, so the team releases three players: Carson "CarCar" First, Samir "Tsuna" Ikram and Alhumaidi "KSAA" Alruwaili.
Today we say farewell to three Titans that represented Vancouver with pride and honour.

While CarCar and Tsuna didn’t really get a chance to shine with the Vancouver Titans. During a French interview, Tsuma revealed that he is currently trialing for five other teams. Meanwhile, CarCar tweeted that he is looking for a team for the upcoming Overwatch League season.
Finally, there's KSAA, who carried his team with his skills on Sigma. However, due to a shaky internet connection and frequent lags in-game, the player couldn’t perform at his highest level. The COVID-19 crisis hit the Overwatch League in many ways. Players having to play from home with unstable internet was one of its consequences.
As the Vancouver Titans are releasing three players, they also announced re-signing three others: Dalton "Dalton" Bennyhoff, Abtin "ShRedLock" Shirvani and Randal "Roolf" Stark. The team didn’t yet reveal if they would re-sign the fourth player of its roster, Niclas "sHockWave" Jensen.
