Today, another one of our members will be leaving. @sharykOW has been a great member of this team. From starting off more reserved and then memeing more with the team, we're happy to say he'll be pursuing other opportunities pic.twitter.com/b6YXxscRR4— Second Wind (@SecondWindGG) April 7, 2019
Slow and steady wins the race. @speedilyOW, the last of the Akitans, will finally be leaving our home. We wish him luck as he continues to punish DVa micro missiles with other opportunities. pic.twitter.com/ukFEkzwWRa— Second Wind (@SecondWindGG) April 7, 2019
We were lucky enough to have @gods_live as a leader on the team. I guess you're one of "those" guys now... We'll miss him, but we know he'll do amazing as goes onto other opportunities. R. pic.twitter.com/LoOg25f44s— Second Wind (@SecondWindGG) April 7, 2019
All three have been a part of Second Wind since the start of the Contenders season, helping the team achieve a 4-1 record over that time. They are currently third in the Contenders North America East standings.
Five players have left Second Wind since March 31, including the three that left today. Second Wind only have three players officially on their roster: main tank LUFT, off-tank Techneeke and main support HelloImHalo.
While the team has not made an official announcement regarding him, French flex support Hidan played for Second Wind in their most recent match and recently announced he is flying to the United States.
The current roster of Second Wind was built from scratch before the start of the 2019 Contenders season as a result of players from the team's last roster leaving for paid opportunities.
While most move on to academy teams, a few Second Wind alumni have recently made it into the Overwatch League. frd, who played on their Contenders 2018 Season 3 roster, was recently signed by the Atlanta Reign and im37 was signed by the Defiant after he played one match for Second Wind.
Second Wind plays Chicken Contendies on April 8. They will need to quickly replace their missing players for the match.
- "Techneeke" (Off-tank)
- Aris "LUFT" Galli (Tank)
- Mikaël "Hidan" Da Silva (Flex Support)
- Kobe "HelloImHalo" Hamand (Support)
