For those who don’t know, Kellex was previous a part of Boston Uprising where the latter played as main support. He remained with the team for the first two years of the Overwatch League and helped them secure many victories. During his with the team, he played really well and managed to establish a name for himself. However, Boston Rising recently decided to release six players from their team, and Kellex was one of them. Aside from this, Kellex has also played for Team Singularity. Other than that, he is the main support on Team Denmark in the Overwatch World Cup. He has been playing for Team Denmark for three years.
Previous Additions And Changes
Toronto Defiant has built a really strong roster for the upcoming 2020 Overwatch League. One day ago, the team announced that they have signed DPS Lane “Surefour” Roberts. Surefour previously played for Los Angeles Gladiators and he stayed with them throughout the two years of the league. Although his team managed to make it to the playoffs of the league’s second season, they were defeated by the San Francisco Shock and had to go home. But now, the latter is going to play for the Canadian team.
The team has also dropped some of its players to make space for new ones. After the second season of the league, they dropped most of its roster to make space for new players. Later on, they added DPS Brady “Agilities” Girardi, main tank Adam “Beast” Denton, and Park “KariV” Young-seo for the upcoming season. The team has also decided to keep Liam “Mangachu” Campbell in the roster. This basically means that they are going to focus on adding more Canadian talent to the team. Considering the team started with an all-Korean roster in 2019, they sure are making some huge changes.
Now that Toronto Defiant has added Kellex to their team, they finally have eight players. For those who don’t know, it is the requirement of the Overwatch League for a team to have at least eight players in the team. The next season of the league will start on February 8, with Toronto Defiant facing Paris Eternal for the first match of the season.
