Los Angeles Gladiators Off-Season Changes Part Three

On October 29th, the Los Angeles Gladiators announced they had traded Gui-un “Decay” Jang to the Dallas Fuel for Min-seok “OGE” Son. Gladiators’s fans are saddened with the loss of another player from their 2019 roster. Although the possibility of a highly talented and charismatic player has made them hopeful.

A Different Shield

With the star Main Tank joining, this will be the fifth player to have been signed to the team. Before him there was Luis “iRemiix” Galarza Figueroa, Chan-Hyung “Fissure” Baek, Gye “rOar” Chang-hoon, and Byung-ho “Panker” Lee. Although OGE is a amazing upgrade, his future with the Gladiators is uncertain.

OGE’s 2019 Season

OGE was one of the highest regarded Main Tank’s in the Overwatch League and was the Fuel’s leader coming into the 2019 season. After performance issues with the Fuel in both stages one and two, they signed Ashley “Trill” Powell who would split time with OGE.

When the smoke settled after the season, OGE had shown he was above many Main Tanks in the league. He had also proven himself as a flexible player, taking dives into both Orisa and Reinhardt when the meta didn’t favor his signature Winston.

The New Kids in Town

Earlier this month, the Gladiators had also signed Indy “SPACE” Halpern to their team and serving as their Off-Tank. Now with OGE entering the lineup and joining forces, the two newcomers will become the new faces of the team as they enter into the 2020 season.

On a beautiful Saturday morning, I arrived at the Anaheim Convention Center at 8 AM. I was in my Team Canada jersey and my Canada cape, even if team Canada didn’t make it to Top 6 for the Overwatch World Cup. Canada is my number 1 team I cheer for, and I just wanted to show support! USA, France, Netherlands, China, South Korea, and Denmark advanced to the top 6 for playoffs. Later, I was in line for the Overwatch World Cup arena after convention doors opened.
