After weeks of hints dating back to Jolson's release from the team, Denial Esports and their Overwatch roster have parted ways. Félix "xQc" Lengyel announced that the remaining five members on the roster would jump ship to their own interim brand: YIKES!
Denial Esports has not yet commented on the roster move, though it remains to be seen whether they re-enter Overwatch with a new team.
Yikes will presumably compete in the upcoming, final, Overwatch Monthly Melee, though whether they are forced to play for a spot remains to be seen. The roster played with silkthread in the last edition of the tournament, but he is notably busy with school preventing his professional career from taking off.
The YIKES! roster is as follows:
- Derek "zza" Johnson (DPS)
- Danteh "Danteh" Cruz (Flex)
- Félix "xQc" Lengyel (Tank)
- Donald "Dahun" Leigh (Support)
- Brice "Gingerpop" Breakey (Support)
- Pirin “Kitta” Singapan (Strategic Planning & Analyst)
- Zach “Sovereign” Bent (Player Development & Scouting)
- Jeremy “Jerkkit” Wong (Head Coach, Team Manager & Analyst)
