Overwatch: Fusion University Reveals Season 3 Roster

Fusion University announced its roster for the third season of Overwatch Contenders. The Philadelphia Fusion’s academy team revealed their squad via Twitter, shortly before NA Contenders kicks off again.

Fusion University takes on Contenders with an unchanged backline; support players Kyung-bo “Alarm” Kim and Elijah “Elk” Gallagher return for a third season with the team. Elk now plays on a two-way contract with the Fusion, and could very well be seen on the Overwatch League stage as well in the months to come. Flex tank Se-won “BERNAR” Shin also returns for his second season on Fusion University.

The Arrivals

New arrivals to the roster include DPS player Ho-Sung “Na1st” Lee and tank player Chang-sik “ChangSik” Moon. Both previously played in Korean Contenders, with Na1st arriving from Meta Bellum and ChangSik last playing for Team KongDoo Panthera. In addition, DPS player Simon “snillo” Ekström joins the Fusion University roster on a two-way contract. After spending the first season of the Overwatch League with the Fusion, snillo now has the option to get more time in with the Contenders squad.

The Departures

The roster announcement comes with three notable departures–Seung-jun “WhoRU” Lee, Adam “Beasthalo” Denton, and Zachary “ZachaREEE” Lombardo. The off-season rumor mill has occasionally speculated about the fate of Beasthalo and ZachaREEE, but it remains to be seen where either of them will land before season two of the Overwatch League begins. WhoRU, on the other hand, is still too young to join a team, leaving his competitive future unknown for the moment.

This season, Fusion University will be led by coach Chris “spazzo” Infante, who most recently coached GG Esports Academy before their disbandment earlier this year. He steps in for Ji-Sub “paJion” Hwang.

Fusion University heads into season three of Contenders with two championship titles under their belt, and most fans expect them to be as powerful as ever in their upcoming matches. They played their first match of the season on November 27th, where they pulled off a 3-2 victory over Uprising Academy.
