The Valiant have acquired Shax and FCTFCTN from Mayhem Academy and McGravy from the Florida Mayhem. The Mayhem have acquired Fate from the Valiant.

The trade is part of a shift the Florida Mayhem are making to an all-Korean roster and could indicate the Valiant are looking toward fielding an all-western roster.

Assistant coach DongSu left the Valiant late last month, leaving the team with no Korean coaches and five Korean players. They now have four remaining Korean players.

The Mayhem, on the other hand, made public their intentions to move away from their western player and staff before the start of Stage 2. They still have TviQ and Apply on their Overwatch League roster.

Both Shax and FCTFCTN were members of Mayhem Academy, who finished first in the group stage of Contenders North America East before losing in the semifinals. Their roster is entirely western with no Korean players. There are still five members of Mayhem Academy.

Shax will be making his first appearance on an Overwatch League roster while FCTFCTN will return to the Overwatch League after playing from the Outlaws' bench for much of last year. McGravy joined the Overwatch League earlier this season when the Mayhem still had intentions of fielding a mixed roster.

Fate has been the starting main tank for the Los Angeles Valiant for the past two seasons, playing every game for them during that time. Last season, he became an all-star representing the Pacific Division.

Both the Valiant and Mayhem have struggled to find success this season. The Mayhem are currently last in the standings with a 1-13 record. The Valiant are 17th with a 3-11 record, with all three of their wins coming in their last six matches.

Both teams have an extended break before their next match. The Mayhem next game is June 6. The Valiant next play June 7.
