Two weeks ago, ConnorJ announced he was stepping down from his spot on DPS for EnVision eSports. That same day EnVision announced that Jaru would be trialing for the same role. Today, EnVision cements Jaru into that DPS role, announcing that the team has officially acquired him from Toronto Esports.

For EnVision, this comes as a part of a rebuilding process to try and propel the team into being consistent contenders with the top of North America. Shortly after being eliminated from the BEAT Invitational and a week after being a win away from qualifying for Contenders Season 1, EnVision announced that they were looking for both a coach and a main tank. Signing Jaru is the first step of what will likely be several towards EnVision's goal of solidifying a formidable roster.

For Toronto Esports, this is part of a different kind of rebuilding effort. Jaru may not be the only loss they suffer. After competing with Toronto in Contenders Season Zero, support player Luddee played with Tempo Storm during BEAT. Despite a promising run in the Contenders qualifiers, which saw victories over Team Liquid and Hollywood Hammers, Toronto is now left with holes in their roster they must attempt to fill.

The roster for EnVision eSports is now:

  • Jani "Tseini" Kähkönen (DPS)
  • Jason "Jaru" White (Flex DPS)
  • Caleb "McGravy" McGarvey (Flex)
  • Anthony "Fire" King (Support)
  • Riley "Fahzix" Taylor (Support)
