Please join us in welcoming @Beasthalo to the Defiant roster! We're super stoked that his move from @OWPathToPro to the @overwatchleague will be with us. We'll take great care of him @FusionUni! #RiseTogether pic.twitter.com/9DN1fBm9Qe— Toronto Defiant (@TorontoDefiant) October 30, 2019
The Defiant were one of the new expansion teams this season, and tied for 17th place in the final standings with an 8-20 record in the regular season.
Beast will make his debut in the Overwatch League next season. He played for University in two different time spans. The first was for the majority of 2018 until November of that year when he was not on the roster, but was brought back in February this year. They would go on to win Season 1 of Contenders: North America East and the Atlantic Showdown, and placed in the top six in Season 2 of Contenders: Korea.
The Defiant have had a busy month during the off-season with a number of changes to their team. Today they parted ways with DPS player Ivy as he moved to the Philadelphia Fusion.
The Defiant currently have Mangachu and Neko subject to team option, and will become free agents if they are not picked up on November 11.
