The Boston Uprising have made their first major move of the offseason. Fans had doubts about losing former all-star flex support Sang-min “Myunb0ng” Seo, but it looks like the front office wasn’t as worried. On Thursday October 21, the Boston Uprising announced the signing of flex support William “Crimzo” Hernandez for the 2022 season. Crimzo joins the Uprising after playing in the 2021 season with the Houston Outlaws.
Wrestled him away.
Welcome to the Uprising, @Crimzo!

Crimzo joined the league back in 2020 with the Dallas Fuel after impressive performances in Contenders and the Overwatch World Cup. Crimzo surprised audiences with his play on the Fuel, often times being the standout player aside from Gui-un “Decay” Jang. In 2021 he joined the Houston Outlaws, where he helped the rival Texas squad to their best finish ever.
Per the IBM Power Rankings, Crimzo finished 10th among supports in 2021, and 34th overall in the league. Boston fans will be excited to see another playmaking support in the backline after the departure of Myunb0ng at the start of the offseason. Fans and analysts alike saw Crimzo as one of the more exciting flex support players in the North American region. The Uprising will look to their flex support once again this season to create plays that turn the match into their favor.
Crimzo joins the team as it continues to construct it’s roster. Leyton “Punk” Gilchrist and Hong-gyu “Faith” Kim were both announced to be returning to the Uprising for another year in the Overwatch League. Boston appears to be heading towards a mixed roster once again, but people will have to wait and see what the team will do next.
