With the Overwatch League season rapidly closing in on the playoffs, teams are looking to solidify their roster for a postseason run or to set them up for future success.

Here you can find all the Overwatch League roster moves that happened between the end of Stage 3 and the beginning of Stage 4. This will be your home for all the roster moves in the Pre-Stage 4 scene, so be sure to keep this page bookmarked and check back frequently. 

Shanghai Dragons Acquire Izayaki

The Shanghai Dragons have picked up support player Min-chul “Izayaki” Kim from the Los Angeles Valiant. Izayaki has been a steady Zenyatta player all season long for the Valiant but it will be interesting to see how the team splits the playing time between him and Seong-hyeon “Luffy” Yang.

Philadelphia Fusion Acquire Kyb for Fragi

In exchange for Joona “Fragi” Laine, the Philadelphia Fusion acquired Finley “Kyb” Adisi. Kyb has played Brigitte for the Guangzhou Charge but the British player is a DPS. With the acquisition, the Fusion now have four DPS players on their roster, if you include the two-way contract of Simon “snillo” Ekstrom.

Guangzhou Charge Add Fragi and Bischu

The Guangzhou Charge bolstered their roster with the additions of Joona “Fragi” Laine and Hyung-seok “Bischu” Kim. Fragi, who was acquired via trade for Finley “Kyb” Adisi, has spent the entirety of his Overwatch League career with the Philadelphia Fusion as a main tank. Bischu has been with the Los Angeles Gladiators since the inaugural season of the Overwatch League, playing almost exclusively D.Va.

Munchkin Takes Leave From Seoul Dynasty

The Seoul Dynasty have announced that Sang-beom “Munchkin” Byeon will be inactive for the team during Stage 4. The DPS player had not appeared during the Dynasty’s play during the Stage 3 playoffs. Munchkin has previously dealt with tenosynovitis, which has hampered his practice time.

Boston Uprising Sign Stellar

Do-hyung “Stellar” Lee returned from retirement and joined the Boston Uprising. Stellar had previously played for the Toronto Defiant this season but announced his retirement from play on April 3.

Washington Justice Sign ELLIVOTE and LullSiSH

The Washington Justice have signed the tank duo of Elliot “ELLIVOTE” Vaneryd and Lukas “LullSiSH” Wiklund. The Swedish duo have played together for virtually their entire professional careers and were most recently on Team Envy.
