Xzi are Pokpo are both newcomers to the scene, with little history behind them. Similar in vein to their new team, they have a lot to prove heading into the first season of Contenders this year.

Elementic Mystic grew an impressive record last year as an APEX Challengers team, taking first among the competition in APEX Challengers Season 5. Since then, they took the trophy in SURGE 2017 and 3rd place in the Nexus Cup 2017 Annual Finals.

The team is set to make their appearance in Contenders 2018 Season 1: Korea, after acquiring a slot from Lunatic-Hai (who withdrew from Overwatch and folded their roster), bypassing the Contenders Trials qualifiers they were originally placed in. They now await the remaining four teams from Trials as they currently race to the first season.

Element Mystic's roster is now:

  • Jung "Xzi" Ki-hyo (DPS)
  • Lee "Guard" Hee-dong (DPS)
  • Kim "SP9RK1E" Young-han (DPS)
  • Pokpo (Tank)
  • Seo "Daco" Dong-syung (Flex)
  • Lee "Jecse" Seung-soo (Support)
  • Kim "Rapel" Jun-geun (Support)
  • Yoon "Next" Hee-won (Head Coach)
  • Jeong "Levi" Chung-hyeok (Coach)
