Please welcome @shadder2k to the team as our new flex dps player, you can see him in action in our first Contenders game of the season against @EagleGaming_TV on 3.7 Tuesday 20:00 CEST pic.twitter.com/OjRvF6iznu— Team Gigantti (@TeamGigantti) June 26, 2018
shadder2k joins Gigantti after playing with Young and Beautiful for the last half of Contenders Season 1. He and his teammates finished in the top eight and qualified for the playoffs, but failed to make it past the quarterfinal.
He is the first player from outside of Finland to join Team Gigantti. In fact, if someone were to trace Gigantti's origins back to SG-1 SG-1 Inactive right after Overwatch's release in 2016, shadder is the first player from outside of Finland to play with any iteration of the roster in its two year history.
shadder replaces nil, who has stated he has not played Overwatch for months. It is unlikely nil will join a new team.
I havent played for months, just don't find the game enjoyable anymore— NIL (@nil_ow) June 26, 2018
