The Kongdoo organization recently announced the new roster of Kongdoo Panthera after the old Kongdoo Panthera squad was picked up by Cloud9 to become a part of the London Spitfire Overwatch League franchise.
The new Panthera roster merges the leftovers of Kongdoo Uncia and Kongdoo Panthera while adding a few additional Korean free agents. The two players of the former Kongdoo Panthera that were not signed to the Spitfire, wakawaka and Void, will be joining forces with half of Kongdoo Uncia's most recent roster.
In their place, the team has added r0ar, JIN, and CoMa. r0ar most recently played tank for LuxuryWatch Red, who finished among the top eight in the most recent season of APEX. JIN played for Afreeca Freecs before its disband, while CoMa spent the last season of APEX playing support for the now defunct Flash Lux.
The new Kongdoo Panthera will likely compete in the next season of APEX, although no start date has been announced yet. APEX, Overwatch Pacific Championship, and Contenders are all currently on hold as Blizzard has yet to announce how often the divisions below the Overwatch League will run.
The new Kongdoo Panthera roster is:
- Jang "Decay" Gui-un (장귀운) (DPS)
- Jin "JIN" Yong-jin (DPS)
- Yang "DDing" Jin-hyeok (양진혁) (Flex)
- Kang "Void" Jun-woo (강준우) (Tank)
- Moon "ChangSik" Chang-sik (문창식) (Tank)
- Gye "r0ar" Chang-hoon (Tank)
- An "wakawaka" Jee-ho (안지호) (Support)
- Yang "Luffy" Seong-hyeon (양성현) (Support)
- Son "CoMa" Kyeong-woo (손경우) (Support)
