Former Vancouver Titans support ace Seong Jun "Slime" Kim has been snapped up by the Overwatch League’s Seoul Dynasty.
The player was among those cut last week when the Titans announced the departure of the team’s entire roster. Difficulties managing team members, who had returned to their home country of South Korea at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, was given as the reason for the “mutual” agreement.
Slime’s history with the Titans dates right back to the team’s RunAway roots. He served as an unflappable rock during a run to the 2019 Overwatch League Grand Finals, where the squad finished second to the San Francisco Shock.
Slime cited the chance to play in his country as a major reason for signing with the Seoul Dynasty. During his time with the Titans, he was living and training in North America, including the squad’s homebase of Vancouver.
“After I left my team, I contacted other teams and I thought Seoul Dynasty is the team that is closest to my goal, winning the championship,” he noted during his introduction to Dynasty fans.
The Seoul Dynasty play the Chengdu Hunters on May 16.
