The Dallas Fuel announced today that they have signed Ashley "Trill" Powell to an Overwatch League contract.
The Dallas Fuel announced this evening that they have signed Ashely "Trill" Powell from their Overwatch Contender's team to an Overwatch League Contract. Powell will enter the Fuel roster as a main tank.
According to a press release from the Dallas Fuel, Trill is in the process of moving to Los Angeles and will make his debut for the Fuel during Stage 3 of the Overwatch League. The move follows a 1st place finish in Northwestern American Contenders for Envy, where Trill and company were able to take a 4-1 victory over Atlanta Academy.
Trill, known for his love for Hammond, originally started his Overwatch career as a star DPS player. In fact, teams feared his explosive yet consistent playstyle in the Oceanic region. The Australian player placed well with his team, Jam Gaming, and things were looking well.
However, his team at the time needed a tank player, and Trill sacrificed both his role and his time to learn the ins and outs of the tank role, and his career has done nothing but skyrocket since then. Trill has qualified to the starting roster for Team Australia both in 2017 and 2018, leading his team to the finals against team Canada in his inaugural year. While Trill only got to the quarterfinals the next year, time and time again Trill proved that he was able to compete with the best.
Trill will be joining his former teammate Caleb “McGravy” McGarvey in the League, although not on the same team. McGravy joined the Florida Mayhem, while Trill will stay with his original organization. Fans of contenders and the Fuel alike are excited to see a new addition to the roster, and the league better make way for the Australian bombshell.
ESTNN will update this article with more information as it becomes available.
We’re thrilled to welcome @Trill_ow to the Fuel roster!
Trill comes from the undefeated @Envy Overwatch Contenders team. He will be joining us between Stage 2 and 3. Give him a follow!
