rOar joins the Gladiators after the team parted with both of its main tanks following the end of the 2018 Overwatch League season. Decay, on the other hand, will join as the team's third DPS player. This brings the Gladiators to three former Kongdoo Panthera players on their roster. Void also played for KDP before joining the Gladiators,

Following the departures of rOar and Decay to the Gladiators and DDing, YOUNGJIN, Luffy and CoMa to the Shanghai Dragons, Kongdoo Panthera has one remaining player on their roster in choisehwan. The organization also lost head coach BlueHaS to the Dragons, but has since replaced him with NoMi and Parrot.
