After leaving Lunatic-Hai due to controversy, Munchkin and Claris decided to join Laser Kittenz, a team that is set to travel to Korea in the very near future. The pair was reportedly in talks with Laser Kittenz before signing with Lunatic-Hai, but the European organization now finds itself in a favorable position.

The pair is known to be very skilled to Korean Overwatch fans, and will notably fit into what is becoming a new trend: the seven-man roster. Laser Kittenz plans to field their six players depending on both the situation at hand and the tournament ruleset. Both players will aim to improve their coordination by taking English lessons, and coach Cella should be able to help as well.
While announced earlier this week, trial head coach INTERNETHULK will no longer be a part of the Laser Kittenz roster. While he will still be in Korea, INTERNETHULK will help Rogue as a trial coach and analyst.
Sypeh, who was trialling with the team earlier in the week, is no longer part of their roster. Presumably Munchkin and Claris will take over in their roles for the future.
The Laser Kittenz roster is as follows:
- Byun "Munchkin" Sang-beom (DPS)
- Finley "Kyb" Adisi (DPS)
- Carl "crems" Aspehult (Flex)
- Lee "Claris" Gun-ho (Flex)
- Nicolas "skipjack" Rosada (Tank)
- Luís "Greyy" Perestrelo (Support)
- Ivo "Linepro" Krasimirov (Support)
- Chris "spazzo" Infante (Strategic Coach)
- Hong "Cella" Seung Pyo (Life Coach)
