Overwatch: Ryujehong Just Latest Roster Move For Vancouver Titans

The Vancouver Titans started the week off pulling Baek “Fissure” Chan-hyung out of retirement, to only days later turn their roster on its head. Often talked about as one of the best teams in the Overwatch League, all bets are off for their 2020 play book with their newest editions.

The team released Park “Bumper” Sang-beom early on Wednesday, November 27th, and later announced that they were picking up Ryu “Ryujehong” Je-hong from Seoul Dynasty. This move shocked nearly everyone. But it explained the addition of Fissure, since the two have similar playstyles and personalities.

Even though the Titans picked up Hwang “Tizi” Jang-hyeon late in the 2019 season, they released him for unknown reasons. The tank line will now center around Fissure as the main tank, and Jjanu as the off-tank.

Ryujehong's place in the Vancouver Titans' lineup is yet to be determined given how both Slime and Twilight have been on top of their game. Ryujehong might take a more leader-oriented role in the upcoming season given the younger age of his teammates and the challenges that may come with a travel format. His addition to the Vancouver Titans wasn't needed, but it does give them a nice balance of all-stars and new stars.

The Titans went on a rampage during their initial year in the Overwatch League, and it may continue in 2020 if they can fill their weaknesses. Currently their roster sits at eight players, and could do with another DPS player. Maybe Jin “Youngjin” Young-Jin, formerly of the Shanghai Dragons.
