The Overwatch The league loser team really can not take a break. In one step, which invites a lot of speculation, they have unleashed one of their most talented players without offering an explanation.
The Shanghai Dragons, despite their best efforts (and a brutal training plan) still have not won a single game during Overwatch League's first season. However, they had some big moments that shared cards from top teams like the Seoul Dynasty, thanks in part to the efforts of DPS zombie man Chao "Undead" Fang. Today, however, they suddenly announced that Undead had been dropped.
"Schedule Change: Today, the Shanghai Dragons announce the release of Fang & # 39; Undead & # 39; Chao, with the OWL Office's approval," the team said on Twitter . "Shanghai Dragons is grateful for the contributions Undead has made to this season so far and we wish him all the best for his future career."
The dragons have no specific reason for the untimely funeral of Undead, but for the past For several weeks, he has been the subject of rumors that he has become unfaithful to several women. Neither Undead nor his former team have commented on these rumors directly, but it is certain that undead returned to China earlier this month to solve a "personal problem". Now he was released from the team. Compete reached Shanghai Dragons for more information, but at the time of writing they still had to answer.
Earlier this month, Shanghai coach Chen sent "U4" Conghan, who was on the heels of criticism for a coaching style that supposedly had players practicing every day from 10:30 am to midnight. They were also a second DPS for most OWL level two after Lu "Diya" Weida returned to China to deal with "family issues". New players Kim "Geguri" Se-Yeon and He "Sky" Junjian are solving visa problems and starting third level next week. Two other new players, Lee "Fearless" Eui-Seok and Chon "Ado" Gi-Hyeon, arrived at the end of the second leg. In addition, Shanghai recently won a new coach and assistant coach in Wang "RUI" Xingrui and Yan "Creed" Xiao, the last of whom played for an OWL watch team widely regarded as the best in China.
With three more stages in OWL's regular season, there is still time for Shanghai to set up the ship or at least prevent it from capsizing. However, new team members mean both new opportunities and new growing pains. A wonderful comeback could be just around the corner, but the corner is at the top of a very steep hill.
