ZachaREEE was one of the driving forces behind Fusion University's success in North American Contenders 2018 Seasons 1 and 2, finishing first in both seasons with dominating performances in the group stages, putting up perfect 5-0 win/loss records in both seasons. Their playoff runs were also exceptional, only ever having to play a full five map series once against Toronto Esports Toronto Esports Inactive in the 2018 Season 2 quarterfinals. ZachaREEE's addition to the Fuel will allow him to work with Aero , his former Fusion University and Team United States United States World Cup Rank # head coach once again for the upcoming Overwatch League season.
Aero departed from Fusion University in May to join a struggling Fuel roster, leading the team to a playoff run in the fourth stage. They narrowly edged out their Texas rivals, the Houston Outlaws Houston Outlaws OWL Rank # , for the fourth and final spot in the stage playoffs. They would eventually fall to the New York Excelsior New York Excelsior OWL Rank # in a 3-2 loss, but the change that Aero had brought to the team in their performances was nothing to scoff at.
ZachaREEE's addition brings the Fuel's DPS count to four, with the other three members being Taimou , aKm , and EFFECT . Recently, the team signed Finnish off-tank rCk . Alongside rCk, ZachaREEE will enter the next season without any prior Overwatch League experience. The only other player that has joined the Fuel in the offseason was main support Closer . He was signed back in October.
The Dallas Fuel have six nationalities represented on their roster. ZachaREEE is their only American player.
The next Overwatch League season will commence on February 14.
