Today (8/21), Overwatch League team, the Los Angeles Gladiators, announced today that Chan-Hyung “Fissure” Baek has been transferred to Seoul Dynasty. While the financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, the official Seoul Dynasty twitter gave him a wonderful compliment and welcome to the team.

This will actually be the third Overwatch League team for Fissure. He started the 2018 season as a member of London Spitfire.  Then London dealt Fissure to the Gladiators at the conclusion of Stage 1. Fissure dramatically helped the Gladiators while he was on the team (not that London needed the help in the end). By the end of the season, the Gladiators went 21-9, reaching the Stage 3 and 4 finals. However, Fissure didn’t play for the Gladiators during the opening round of the season playoffs, he was replaced in the starting lineup by Luis “iRemiix” Galarza Figeuora. The Gladiators went on to lose the series to London 2-1. However, Fissure still finished the first season with the 4th best record in the league.

The Dynasty entered the 2018 season as one of the favorites to win the Overwatch League’s first title, but fell short of those expectations, finishing the season in 8th place with a 22-18 record. Hopefully, now, Fissure can provide an immediate upgrade to the Dynasty’s tank line of Dae-Kuk “Kuki” Kim and Jin-Hyuk “Miro” Gong.

I have worked hard to become the COO here at GAW and I love it. I write and stream here and I couldn't be happier. I once had a show that I produced, wrote, and co-hosted called the Wide World of Games. I also co-host a podcast called Party Up! I'm an Action-Adventurer, platformer, RPGer, and FPS kind of gamer. Quick to play any game that has magic, swordplay, and/or stealthy elements. If you can customize a character I'm in it for the long haul. Or just give me your 2D platform and I'm a happy camper. What else do you expect from a gamer with a beard and a bow tie tattoo? Seriously.
