On Thursday October 8, the Boston Uprising announced the first of their roster moves for the 2020 off-season. The Uprising say goodbye to main support Kobe “Halo” Hamand and main tank Michael “Mikeyy” Konicki.

This announcement marks the first roster move under new head coach Seung-hyun “Lori” Kim. Halo joined the team a few weeks into the season, replacing Gabriel “Swimmer” Levy in the support line. He remained the starter for the entirety of the season, as Swimmer later retired half-way through 2020. Mikeyy joined the team late in the season, as a Wrecking Ball specialist. He played just two matches in the season, and was ultimately utilized more in the Uprising Academy contenders roster than the Overwatch League roster.
This move leaves Boston with Cameron “Fusions” Bosworth and Minseob “Axxiom” Park as the remaining main tanks on the roster, and Sang-min “Myunb0ng” Seo as the sole support left for the Uprising.
