The off-season roster shuffle is a huge gamble for a lot of teams, and some have had it worse than others. While most teams are making trades and building specific rosters, the London Spitfire keeps giving their players away. The London Spitfire’s roster currently sits at three players after releasing two of their best support players.
Today, we mutually part ways with Quatermain and @BdosinOW.

In a tweet on Tuesday, the London Spitfire announced that they would be releasing Ji-hoon "Quatermain" Song and Seung-tae "Bdosin" Choi. Losing Quartermain is rough for the Spitfire, even with Yung-hoon "Krillin" Jung remaining on the team. Bdosin however, is a hard hit to loyal fans as he was the last original team member left. Bdosin joined the Spitfire in 2017 for the Overwatch League’s inaugural season and proved to be a deadly Zenyatta. Despite his struggles in the GOATS meta, he has since flexed over to Moira and Quartermain took the Lucio slot. These two played extremely well together and watching them go just weeks after Fury, Gesture, and Profit leave, things don’t look good for the London Spitfire.
Every team is going through changes, but the London Spitfire has completely cleaned house on a former superstar roster. Their team is rather slim at the moment, although this could be a chance to rebuild with fresh talent. Their other support, Tae-hoon "Fuze" Kim, played on Gen.G for a short time and competed on Fusion University before being picked up by the London Spitfire. Rebuilding around young Contenders' talent might be the best move considering how much money was spent on keeping their former champions. There are still 4 months left until Overwatch League begins again, so every player is still fair game.
