Overwatch League: Seoul Dynasty’s Gambler retires from professional play but will stay with Gen.G as a streamer
- Heo ‘Gambler’ Jin-woo joined Seoul Dynasty in February as an extra support
- The team announced today that he will retire, but will remain as a streamer
- Seoul Dynasty struggled in the first season, when many expected them to excel
The off-season Seoul Dynasty shake up continues, as the organisation announced today that Heo ‘Gambler’ Jin-woo will be retiring from professional Overwatch esports play.
The support main will remain with Gen.G, Seoul Dynasty’s parent organisation, as a professional streamer.
‘We thank him for being with us during the OWL2018 season! We wish him luck with his career as a streamer,’ tweeted Seoul Dynasty this morning.
Heo ‘Gambler’ Jin-woo joined Seoul Dynasty in February, but will now no longer be a pro player
Gambler joined Dynasty on February 26 this year, partway through the inaugural season of the Overwatch League.
He’s known for his Lucio and Mercy play, and was added to bolster the existing support lineup of Je-hong ‘Ryujehong’ Ryu, Jin-mo ‘tobi’ Yang, and Gi-do ‘Gido’ Moon.
He ended up playing more regularly than Gido during the regular season, putting in about 10 and a half hours, and coming out on top of the list of Seoul Dynasty supports in terms of average healing done.
Previously, Gambler played for LW Red, LW Blue (the players from which later became New York Excelsior), and BlossoM.
Seoul have one of the largest rosters in the league, and were picked by many to be the top team coming into the first season. However, disappointing performances and an apparent inability to settle on the strongest starting lineup led to them ending the season in eighth position.
The latest addition to the team is Chan-hyung ‘Fissure’ Baek, who has been one of the most active players in the transfer windows so far. He started his OWL career at London Spitfire before moving to Los Angeles Gladiators.
Fissure is credited with turning the Gladiators’ season around, but now he’s on the move once again. Perhaps he will now be able to find a consistent home with Seoul Dynasty.
