Seoul Dynasty strengthens its roster with former Vancouver Titans main support Sung-jun "SLIME" Kim.


Seoul Dynasty adds a tenth South Korean player to its lineup by signing Sung-jun "SLIME" Kim. Kim is no stranger to the Overwatch League: he performed with Vancouver Titans from the creation of the team to its disband last week. Seoul Dynasty announced the signing on Twitter, stating that Kim has shown an “aggressive by stable playstyle.”

Kim is the fourth support player in Seoul Dynasty. He will play alongside Jin-mo "tobi" Yang, Young-wan "Creative" Kim and Seung-tae "Bdosin" Choi. Kim’ hero pool is similar to Yang’s, as they both play main support heroes such as Lucio and Mercy. Yang also plays a decent Baptiste, which could be combined with Kim’s Lucio. Otherwise, chances are the two players will replace each other to form a support duo with either Creative or Bdosin.

Overwatch League Vice-Champions are still looking for a team

The dismantle of Vancouver Titans left many Overwatch League Vice-Champions players looking for a team. As SLIME joins Seoul Dynasty, seven players are still looking for a new home;

  • Hyojong "Haksal" Kim
  • Min-soo "SeoMinSoo" Seo
  • Chung-hee "Stitch" Lee
  • Hyeon-Woo "JJANU" Choi
  • Jooseok "Twilight" Lee
  • Chan-hyung "Fissure" Baek
  • Jehong "ryujehong" Ryu

All these players proved their ability to master their heroes, handle pressure and win titles. Back when they were all signed under RunAway, the players won the South Korean Overwatch Contenders notably the most complicated scene after the Overwatch League. Switching to the main stage with Vancouver Titans caused no issue for the players, who managed to place second, losing the Grand Finals to San Francisco Shock. Considering their experience and skill level, we can expect more signings from former Vancouver Titans members in the upcoming weeks.
