YoungJIN joined the Dragons last year from Kongdoo Panthera, now known as Griffin, alongside three other teammates, all of who made their Overwatch League debut this season.
During the season, he and the team broke the franchise’s 42 match losing streak and won the Stage 3 finals against the eventual season champions, the San Francisco Shock. They qualified for the play-in tournament after finishing 11th in the regular season, and missed out on the playoffs after a loss to the London Spitfire, ending the season in the top ten.
Izayaki and envy are currently under contract with the team for the next season. Gamsu is listed as a free agent, while the rest are subject to team option.
