The Paris Eternal decided to release the rest of its Overwatch League roster after previous cuts were made.

We have some sad news if you are a Paris Eternal fan. The departures of Eoghan “Smex” O'Neill, Joon “Fielder” Kwon, Da-un “NoSmite” Jeong, Yeong-han “SP9RK1E” Kim and Han-been “Hanbin” Choi weren’t the only ones. Today, the team released the iconic French trio of Terence “SoOn” Tarlier, Nicolas “NiCOgdh” Moret and Benjamin “BenBest” Dieulafait.

Back on October 22, Paris Eternal began to release players from its roster. The team said goodbye to Eoghan “Smex” O'Neill, Joon “Fielder” Kwon and Da-un “NoSmite” Jeong. One day later, two Paris Eternal players are traded to the Dallas Fuel: Yeong-han “SP9RK1E” Kim and Han-been “Hanbin” Choi. The two former Element Mystic players join the Dallas Fuel, as the team seems to gather the old Mystic gang.

As the team seemed to settle with its remaining five players, we are learning today that the Paris Eternal decided not to renew the contracts of its players. Terence “SoOn” Tarlier, Nicolas “NiCOgdh” Moret and Benjamin “BenBest” Dieulafait, the iconic French trio of Paris Eternal, are all looking for a new team.

On his Twitter account, Moret said that it was Paris Eternal’s decision and not his. Dieulafait is still in talks with the team.

With the departure of Terence “SoOn” Tarlier, Nicolas “NiCOgdh” Moret and Benjamin “BenBest” Dieulafait, the Paris Eternal only has two players left: Brice “FDGod” Monsçavoir and Ki-hyo “Xzi” Jung.

The latest French addition to the team, Brice “FDGod” Monsçavoir, seems to be staying with the team. The player retweeted his former teammates’ departure announcements, and only commented a sad emote.

Ki-hyo “Xzi” Jung didn’t yet comment on the latest events in the Paris Eternal. He also didn’t specify whether he was looking for a team or not. This makes his future with Paris uncertain for his fans.
