The Montreal Rebellion revealed the signing of two players last night: Jeffrey “Vizility” de Vries and Stanislav “Mistakes” Danilov.
The Montreal Rebellion have announced that they have signed DPS players Jeffrey “Vizility” de Vries and Stanislav “Mistakes” Danilov to their active roster.
Meet the New and Improved Rebellion
Vizility climbed his way into the professional Overwatch scene, but that wasn’t where he made his start in esports. Before playing in Overwatch, Vizility was a League of Legends professional, where he played for teams such as Splyce and the Copenhagen Wolves Academy. After retiring from League of Legends, Vizility switched to Overwatch, making his debut into the scene at The Party 15 Minor tournament with ECV Esports, taking home the gold. After competing with Team Netherlands in the 2017 Overwatch World Cup, he joined Orgless and Hungry for Season 1 of Contenders 2018 Europe. When the season ended, he joined 6nakes for Contenders Europe Season 2 Trials. Soon after, Toronto Esports took notice of his skills and picked him up.
The team made it to the season playoffs, but thier opponents, Fusion University, proved too much for them to handle. A few days later, Vizility announced he was LFT. After another year competing with Team Netherlands in the Overwatch World Cup, he joined the well renowned Team Gigantti, and they took the Season 3 Contenders 2018 Europe championship against Angry Titans.
We bring reinforcement to the Rebellion! ⚔️
We are happy to announce that @MistakesOW comebacks from retirement to join the Rebellion 👊

Most people who watched the Overwatch League in the inaugural season will know who Mistakes is. He started out his career competing in weekly tournaments like the Go4Overwatch Europe Cup with team 123. 123 went on to take 2nd place in Contenders Europe Season Zero. Once he had competed with Team Russia in the 2017 Overwatch World Cup, Mistakes joined the Boston Uprising. Unfortunately, Boston moved Mistakes to the bench in favor of other DPS players. But, after the first week of Stage 3, the Uprising moved him back to the active roster. He helped lead his team to victory and completed a flawless 10-0 stage. Boston, unfortunately, fell short in the Stage 3 Title Match to the New York Excelsior.
With the Overwatch League inaugural season over, Mistakes took to the stage once more with Team Russia. As September began, the Uprising announced that they had released the DPS player, and, as the new year was about to start, Mistakes announced his retirement from professional Overwatch. Now, he's back in the scene. Not only is he competing again, but he is also Team Russia's General Manager for the 2019 World Cup.
With Logix joining the Toronto Defiant’s main roster, and Naga parting ways with the team, Montreal have picked two talented players that could help bring many more victories in the future of their time in Contenders.
