TAP will make his Contenders debut with Uprising Academy. He has never competed at this level previously, nor does he have any experience in Contenders Trials.
Phatt, on the other hand, has competed in Contenders since Contenders 2018 Season 2. He most recently was a member of the Angry Titans roster. He is the third member of Angry Titans to be added to Uprising organization this offseason: off-tank brussen joined the Overwatch League roster and coach iLka joined the Overwatch League coaching staff.
The two additions put Uprising Academy at five total players from the European region and one player from North America. This would appear to contradict Contenders region-locking rules which mandate a team have no more than three players from outside the region in which the team is based.
Uprising Academy now have a player for every position. Their off-tank, Mouffin, is a two-way player.
The next season of Contenders begins in 2020.
