The Vancouver Titans announced parting ways with their off-tank player Hyeon-Woo “JJANU” Choi.
Vancouver Titans and off-tank player Hyeon-Woo “JJANU” Choi agreed to mutually part ways. Choi was with the Titans ever since the team creation, back when Vancouver hired the Overwatch Contenders 2018 Season 2: Korea winning team, RunAway. With Vancouver Titans, Choi displayed amazing D.Va plays, securing the second place of the 2019 Overwatch League for his team.
The Vancouver Titans announce today that HyunWoo "JJANU" Choi has agreed to mutually part ways with the team. From all of us at the Vancouver Titans organization, thank you JJANU for everything you have done for the team.

The beginning of a Vancouver Titans roster dismantle?
The last few days have been full of rumors regarding the Vancouver Titans. A couple of weeks ago, all former RunAway players removed the Vancouver Titans from their social description. All but two players: Hyeon-Woo “JJANU” Choi and Min-soo “SeoMinSoo” Seo. They both quickly removed all mentions of the team as well, even if they rarely use their social media accounts.
HyunWoo “JJANU” Choi is the first player to leave Vancouver Titans this year. The official statement from the team does not reveal much about the reasons behind Choi’s departure. However, rumors are spreading about arguments between players and management within the Vancouver Titans.
The future does not seem bright for the Vancouver Titans. If the team does not manage to calm the differences between management and players, the whole roster may leave before the end of the Season.
Who can replace JJANU as Vancouver Titans’ off tank?
JJANU was the only off-tank for Vancouver Titans. As he is now gone, the team is left with a single tank player, three DPS and three supports. Chan-hyung “Fissure” Baek will stay as Vancouver Titans main tank, but the team needs to find someone to fill JJANU’s shoes before their match against Washington Justice.
The stellar performance of Hyojong “Haksal” Kim on Genji and his ability on projectile heroes secure him a spot as a main DPS for Vancouver Titans. Chung-hee “Stitch” Lee is the only hitscan DPS of the team, so chances are he will be dealing damage alongside Haksal. This leaves Min-soo “SeoMinSoo” Seo as a potential fill-in for the off-tank position. We have already seen him play Zarya, so he currently is in the best position to form a tanking duo with Fissure.
