Graduating fresh out of NA Contenders and speed-running his way into your hearts and the Path to Pro, please join us in welcoming our new DPS player for @TorontoDefiant, @im37_ow!#RiseTogether pic.twitter.com/uhCLcTkNMV— Toronto Defiant (@TorontoDefiant) April 4, 2019
im37 rocketed up the ranks of the Path to Pro. According to his Liquipedia page, he joined Open Division team Wave Check on March 14 and stayed with the team for only 10 days before joining Second Wind.
His time with Second Wind was even shorter than it was with Wave Check as he remained with the team for a period of one week. That was enough to play in a single match, a 3-1 victory over Mayhem Academy.
im37 has had a history with Canada before joining the Defiant. His Liquipedia page states he came to Canada in 2014 and now attends university in British Columbia, the west coast province Vancouver is located in. As a result, he can speak both English and Korean.
He fills the place left open on the roster by the retirement of DPS player Stellar.
With his addition, the Defiant are now back up eight players, allowing the team to hit the league minimum roster size. They are now back to three DPS players. He joins Ivy and Asher on the DPS line.
Their next match is April 5 against the Washington Justice.
