San Francisco seem to have finalized its roster, announcing this week that Matthew “Super” Delisi and Min-ki “Viol2t” Park will rejoin the team for the 2021 season. They were the two remaining uncertainties this offseason. Previously the team said good-bye to Dong-Jun “Rascal” Kim, then Grant “Moth” Espe signed with the Gladiators.

Super has been with the team since 2017. He was only 17 at the time, turning 18 and becoming eligible in March of the inaugural season in 2018. Since then, he has become a cornerstone of the team, and one of the faces of the Overwatch League as a whole. He has appeared on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon two times now, and is the captain of his team. The Shock re-signed this Reinhardt specialist, who showed his flex potential by playing Genji and Roadhog during the 2020 season.
Viol2t joined the Shock as a rookie in the 2018 season. Since then, he has become a perennial MVP candidate and is widely seen as one of the best flex support players in the league. His Baptiste play is near-unparalleled, and a big reason why the Shock were able to win back-to-back championships. Viol2t is a true bloodthirsty support, striking fear into opponents and doing so from the backline.
With these two superstars back on the team, San Francisco likely has its roster finalized for the 2021 season. The Shock re-signed all but 2 of their players from 2020, those being Rascal and Moth. They acquired Brice “FDGod” Monsçavoir to fill the main support role. No news has been announced about Rascal and he could still potentially rejoin the team.
