The Dragons have no other main tank players on their roster. YoungJIN played main tank for Afreeca Freecs during APAC Premier 2017 and GuardiaN played main tank for Lunatic-Hai during the fifth season of APEX Challengers, also in 2017. Neither player has played main tank for their teams since. Last season, Geguri often played Orisa for the Dragons.
FEARLESS was signed halfway through the first season of the Overwatch League when the franchise first moved to mix in Korean players with its previously all-Chinese roster. His inclusion wasn't enough to turn the fortunes of the Dragons around and thus they finished the season 0-40.
He was one of three players the organization retained during the offseason, the other two being Geguri and Diya . Despite releasing their other main tank, the Dragons opted not to sign a backup for FEARLESS.
