Boston Uprising have announced the signing of a new support player, Min-Seok “AimGod” Kwon. The announcement came rather unexpectedly to fans as the organisation seemed comfortable in the roster at the time the signing window closed. AimGod will be the 5th support player on the roster.
On April 3, the Uprising signed Min-Seok “AimGod” Kwon. @aimgod_ow will be available following visa approval.

A short history of AimGod
AimGod previously played on Meta Bellum the Korean Contenders team who are currently performing well in group A. They are likely to move on to the next stage.
Before this he played on Ardeont under the name “JEFF“. Ardeont were known for winning Overwatch Pacific Championship season 2.
Entering the competition as newcomers Ardeont went on an astounding run. Winning 3-0 in every match in the double round robin. They beat the formidable reigning champions of OPC, Flash Wolves 3-0 in the final, continuing their unbeaten map streak.
Ardeont now have several alumni in the Overwatch League. AimGod (as JEFF) was brought in to Ardeont to replace Jeong-hwan “DayFly” Park now of the Philadelphia Fusion and his former Support partner on Ardeont was Tae-sung “ANAMO” Jung now on NYXL.
Management in agreement
AimGod is an incredibly talented Zenyatta main and being active in contenders will really help him transition into OWL. Chris “HuK” Loranger, President of Gaming for The Kraft Group had this to say about the signing.
“With the trade window closing, we wanted to add an extra layer of depth and security to our roster going into the last legs of the season. ‘AimGod’ has shown the qualities we are looking for in a player both in and out of game, and someone we will work with to help grow and improve while here at Boston Uprising. I am excited to see his play live and eager to integrate him as soon as possible to our team in California.”
