It seems like the Boston Uprising currently trying to improve as much as they can before the 2020 Overwatch League season as the team has just made some big changes. Recently, they dropped six players from their 2019 roster. The organization confirmed the news where they revealed that the team’s entire support line has been dropped, which included both starters and substitutes.
Today we say goodbye to several members of the Uprising.

Players that have been dropped from the team include support players Yang “Persia” Zion and Renan “Alemao” “Moretto, off-tank Richard “rCk” Kanerva, and DPS Lee “Stellar” Do-gung. In addition to this, two other supports Kwon “AimGod” Min-seok and Kristan “Kellex” Keller have also been released. Boston Uprising has decided to not renew the contracts of all six players, and they have been now released from the team.
AimGod and Kellex
Players are surely going to miss AimGod and Kellex since both players have been a part of Boston Uprising for a long time. They joined the team during its inaugural season and have since then helped the team with securing various victories. However, both of them are now free agents, meaning that they can be picked by any team in the league.
Both are really experienced players and it won’t be long before some other team picks them up. Kellex was once a player for Team Singularity and has even played as main support for Team Denmark for three years in the Overwatch World Cup. AimGod, on the other hand, was a support player for Meta Bellum. However, he later left the team because of some unknown reason. He disappeared from the team’s starting roster and his organization didn’t provide any statement regarding what happened.
Stellar and rCK
Stellar was a player for Toronto Defiant and after spending some time with them, he decided to retire from professional Overwatch because of some reason. rCK was a part of Dallas Fuel during the second season of the league and was picked up by Boston Uprising during the midseason. The off-tank is also going to play for Team Finland during the upcoming 2019 Overwatch World Cup.
Persia and Alemao
Support player Persia used to play for Talon Esports in Pacific Overwatch Contenders prior to joining Boston Uprising. For those who don’t know, he joined Boston Uprising’s starting roster in AimGod’s place during this season. Alemao, on the other hand, was a part of the Brazil Gaming House. He played for them for around two years before joining Boston Uprising. The most interesting thing about this player is that he was the only Brazilian player in the entire Overwatch League.
At the moment, fans of Boston Uprising are wondering what they will do next. Now that six players have been dropped from the team, only four players are left. These include DPS duo Kelsey “Colourhex” Birse and Jeffery “blasé” Tang, off-tank Park “Axxiom” Min-sub, and main tank Cameron “Fusions” Bosworth. As teams are required to have at least eight players on their roster for the Overwatch League, it will be interesting to see who will get added next to Boston Uprising.
