They are the first three players to depart from their team since the offseason started.

iddqd played only one map during the Overwatch League season. That map was the team's final of the season, a game of Dorado against the winless Shanghai Dragons.

dhaK played the first 16 matches of the Shock's season, all on main support. He didn't play once in the team's final 24 matches, in which Moth played main support for the team after his signing.

Nomy started as the Shock's main tank for the first half of the season, but saw significantly reduced playing time when super turned 18 before the start of Stage 3. During Stage 3, he played in three matches for a total of six maps. Nomy sat on the bench for the entirety of Stage 4.

Shock owner Andy Miller clarified in a tweet that the players were let go early to give them ample time to find new Overwatch League teams. If the players don't join new teams, all of them will be welcome to join the Shock's stream team.

The cuts drop the team from 12 to nine players, leaving space for three free agent additions should the team sign all of its remaining players. The Shock have yet to announce any re-signings.
