The Philadelphia Fusion Philadelphia Fusion OWL Rank #8 have announced they've promoted flex support Alarm from their academy team to their main roster. Additionally, the team has revealed they are bringing back flex DPS player EQO .
Alarm has been one of the central pieces to Fusion University Fusion University Inactive 's success since the team was first formed in January of 2018. His history in Overwatch's top level of competition dates back to 2016 when he competed in APEX Season 1 with BK Stars. Despite his experience, he is still young: he didn't turn 18 until this July.
EQO's return to the team comes as a surprise after the team wrote their farewells to him last week. EQO has spent the last two seasons as Carpe's primary DPS partner on the Fusion roster.
Additionally, the Fusion's announcement confirms an ESPN report from last week that stated Carpe had re-signed with the Fusion. The ESPN report stated the contract extension will last through the 2022 season, although the Fusion have yet to confirm that detail.
This roster reveals announces several changes to the Fusion roster beyond these moves. Other moves the announcement made official is the transfer of Ivy to the Fusion from the Defiant, the transfer of FunnyAstro to the Fusion from the Reign and the Fusion's trade with the Spitfire for Fury.
The Fusion currently have nine players on their 2020 roster. They needed just eight to reach the league's minimum roster size.
