This news comes following an earlier set of tweets on October 25 and 26 announcing the return of Seungpyo “Rio” Oh and Jungyeon “Chara” Kim. Rio has been the team’s predominant main tank all season, and who’s Wrecking Ball and Orisa play is extremely skilled. Chara has been their primary main support, but also serves as the team’s captain, shot caller, and oldest member. Both of these players have been under contract since the beginning of the off-season, so their return was a near guarantee. However, seeing that they had not been traded is a relief to fans as well for all they contribute.
