Only two players will carry over from the Contenders Season 2 Gigantti roster: Davin and Ripa . Davin has been a member of Gigantti since they entered Overwatch in August of 2017. Ripa has been with the team since the beginning of 2018. Ripa will be a substitute for the team.
Masaa, rCk and Lhcloudy have all moved on from Gigantti to join Overwatch League teams. No news has been announced in regard to shadder2k , the last player from Gigantti's Contenders Season 2 roster.
Among the new players are two former Overwatch League players: zappis and Zuppeh . zappis played on the Gigantti roster that won Contenders Season One Europe in 2017 and will reunite with Davin in the current Gigantti lineup. Zuppeh was a longtime teammate of zappis prior to Gigantti's entry into Overwatch and was a member of the team during the organization's first two weeks in Overwatch. Both players were members of the Florida Mayhem.
The three other new members of the roster are flex DPS Vizility , main tank Milkymann and main support Lilbow . Vizility was a member of Toronto Esports in Contenders Season 2, finding an opportunity to play in the organization's first three Contenders matches. Milkymann has bounced around teams since joining Mayhem Academy in Contenders Season 2 and most recently played for the Bazooka Puppiez. Lilbow played for Contenders Season 2 champions Eagle Gaming.
The organization has also added Tanizhq as an assistant coach and analyst. They have yet to reveal the squad's new head coach after the departure of Seita to the Paris Eternal.
They begin Contenders Season 3 November 18.
