Hydration is the first new addition to the Outlaws roster since the team traded for danteh in September of 2018. Hydration and danteh are the only two players signed by the Outlaws who were not members of the Outlaws' original roster.
This will be the first change of scenery for Hydration since he joined the Gladiators' back in November of 2017. He was one of the team's original seven members.
The Outlaws finished 16th in the 2019 season after managing just a 9-19 record. They went 0-7 in Stage 2. Meanwhile, the Gladiators finished in the top six after ending with a 17-11 record and making a short run in the playoffs.
Hydration shared playtime in the 2019 season with Surefour and Decay as the team ran different DPS pairings in different stages. Later in the season, Hydration earned playtime as a tank player. This was especially true in the playoffs when he came off the bench to specialize in Sigma.
