The legendary @Gesture and @ProfitOW duo have been integral members of the London Spitfire, but today we say our farewells. We’ve won a championship together - a feat that will never be forgotten.— London Spitfire (@Spitfire) October 22, 2019

This confirms a recent report by ESPN’s Jacob Wolf reporting on the trade.
Gesture and Profit were part of the Spitfire’s inaugural roster for the 2018 Overwatch League season. They would go on to win the championship that season, with Profit being awarded the Grand Finals MVP as well.
This season the Spitfire finished in the top eight; they qualified for the playoffs after placing seventh in the regular season, and were eliminated in the lower bracket by eventual champions the San Francisco Shock.
Yesterday the Spitfire made changes to their staff; Agape was promoted to head coach, and SNT, Twinkl and Pavane were added to the team as assistant coaches.
This is the first time this offseason the Dynasty have added any new players or coaches. Last week, they split with head coach KDG.
