The Fusion have released Georgii "ShaDowBurn" Gushcha, Joe "Joemeister" Gramano, and Jeong-Hwan "DayFly" Park.— Philadelphia Fusion (@Fusion) September 2, 2018
Our success in the inaugural OWL season could not have been achieved without their dedication. They will always be part of the Fusion family and we wish them the best.
This marks the first change in their lineup following their second place finish in the Overwatch League Season 1, where they lost in the grand finals against the London Spitfire.
ShaDowBurn competed as DPS for Philadelphia in all of Stage 1, but had his role taken over by EQO for the rest of the season, competing in two matches each in Stage 2 and 3, three in Stage 4 and none in the playoffs.
Dayfly and Joemeister saw limited play as supports in favor of Boombox and Neptuno; the former played in five matches in the regular season and two matches in the quarterfinals, while the latter didn’t play a single match whatsoever.
These changes leave the franchise with nine players on its roster. The team competed with a full 12-player roster the entirety of the Overwatch League season.
- Lee "Carpe" Jae-hyeok (DPS)
- Simon "Snillo" Ekström (DPS)
- Josh "EQO" Corona (DPS)
- Gael "Poko" Gouzerch (Flex)
- Choi "HOTBA" Hong-joon (Flex)
- Joona "Fragi" Laine (Tank)
- Kim "Sado" Sumin (Tank)
- Isaac "Boombox" Charles (Support)
- Alberto "neptuNo" González (Support)
- Yann "Kirby" Luu (Head Coach/General Manager)
- Elliott "Hayes" Hayes (Assistant Coach)
- Se-hwi "NamedHwi" Go (Assistant Coach)
- Ethan "Beezy" Spector (Analyst)
