Los Angeles, October 25th, 2018


The Los Angeles Gladiators have made the first roster signings of the offseason with the acquisition of Gui-un “Decay” Jang and Chang-hoon “rOar” Gye. The two played together on KongDoo Panthera in Korean Contenders.

As the new main tank for the Gladiators, rOar is known for his play on Reinhardt and Winston. He joins off-tanks Aaron “Bischu” Kim and former Kongdoo teammate Jun-woo “Void” Kang on the front line.

Decay will be bringing his notable Tracer, Genji, and Zarya play to the Gladiators, adding to the DPS lineup of João Pedro “Hydration” Goes Telles and Lane “Surefour” Roberts. He is currently 17 and will be eligible to play for the Gladiators after his birthday on February 27th, 2019.

 

Statement from Head Coach David “dpei” Pei


“We’re really glad for rOar and Decay to join us. ROar is an experienced main tank player and has steadily climbed in Korean Contenders. His ability to lead the team will help Gladiators reach the top level. Decay is considered one of the young DPS prodigies in Korea. He will fit very easily into our DPS lineup with his deadly mix of high mechanical prowess, calling, and flexibility. Having him gives us a lot more options against the top teams in the league,” says head coach David “dpei” Pei.

 

Statement from Charlie Lipsie, Director of Esports


“I’m very happy with these new players. We’ve acquired two of the most talented players in the market this offseason. ROar’s experience make him a contender for one of the best main tanks in the league, while Decay is one of the rising DPS stars and will add more flexibility to our team.”
