So far in the season the Shock have used the ever flexible Nevix as the team's off-tank. While Nevix had played DPS and flex support in the past, he had never played flex before joining the Shock. Despite that, he has impressed so far in the season, often seen as one of the brighter spots for the team in the first two stages.
However, ChoiHyoBin is known throughout Korea, and the world, as an exceptional D.Va player. While it is unknown how the Shock plan to use the two players going forward, Nevix will have his work cut out for him to hold onto his starting job.
ChoiHyoBin, along with other midseason Shock signing Architect, helped X6 qualify for APEX Season 3 and make the playoffs of both Season 3 and Season 4. The pair also secured X6 a Nexus Cup 2017 title and a third place finish in Chapter 4 of Overwatch Team Story.
There is currently no timetable set for ChoiHyoBin's arrival in Los Angeles.
