uNKOE did not play a single match during the 2020 season as the Fuel instead played with Crimzo at flex support throughout the entirety of the season. Before this season he had played in most of the Fuel's matches since joining the team in a midseason trade with the Valiant in 2018.
The French flex support player has been a star in Overwatch since the game's beta in 2016 when he first joined Rogue. He won multiple LAN titles with the organization until he joined the Overwatch League as a member of the Valiant in 2017, shortly before the league's inaugural season in 2018. Rogue, the Valiant, and the Dallas Fuel are the only club teams uNKOE has ever played on since the game's launch.
Despite his success prior to joining the Overwatch League, uNKOE has struggled to rack up wins in the global league. He went 10-8 with the Valiant in 2018 and then went 6-11 in regular season games with the Fuel in the remainder of the 2018 season. He went 10-14 with the Fuel in the 2019 season to end up 26-33 in regular season OWL matches in his career.
Those struggles came after he already filled up his trophy case with LAN titles in both TaKeOver events, the ESL Atlantic Showdown in 2016, and APAC Premier 2016 with Rogue. He was one of the most successful individual players in pre-Overwatch League competitions.
He was one of two Dallas Fuel veterans to not play in a match this season. The other was longtime teammate from Rogue aKm.
uNKOE has expressed his desire to play with a European Valorant team. HyP, another former Overwatch League European flex support player, retired earlier this year and has played with Ninjas in Pyjamas in Valorant.
The Fuel now have nine players on their roster.
