Boston Uprising parts ways with general manager HuK 

The organization will also “readdress” its roster.

Its the end of an era for the Boston Uprising as the team makes an unprecedented management change in the middle of the Overwatch League season. 

The team announced today it would be parting ways with its longtime general manager and president, Chris HuK Loranger, and would readdress its roster moving forward. 

HuK has been general manager and president of gaming for the Boston Uprising since the teams inception in late 2017. As a former commentator and professional Starcraft 2 player, hes been embedded in the esports scene for numerous years.

The Uprising, under HuKs direction, has seen dozens of iterations during the Overwatch Leagues five years of existence. From a monumental win streak in the inaugural season to the teams current losing tear, hes been a part of every one of the teams victories and defeats. Boston has also weathered numerous scandals over the years, but HuK remained steadfast as a part of the Uprising.       

Competitive viability was cited as a reason for the organizations decision, according to a statement posted to social media. The Boston Uprising currently has a 3-6 season record and is at the bottom of the leagues ladder, ranked above West Region teams that have logged only one win thus far. 

The teams assistant general manager and former coach, Vytis Mineral Lasaitis, will step in as interim general manager. 

In the statement, the Uprisings management assured fans they will readdress its roster and build for the future, which may not bode well for Bostons current players. 

Bostons next match is against the Florida Mayhem on July 3 at 5pm CT.
