Florida Mayhem parts ways with 4 players 

Several key talents will be waving goodbye to the Sunshine State for now.

Even the sunniest of teams arent immune to the Overwatch Leagues offseason chaos. The Florida Mayhem was one of the most welcome surprises of the 2022 season, but parts of its diverse and flexible roster will be moving on next year. 

The team announced today that it would be parting ways with four of its players before the 2023 season. Hitscan Jung Xzi Ki-hyo, damage dealer Isaiah Hydron Rodriguez, and support players Jung Anamo Taesung and Majed SirMajed Alrashied will not be rocking the teams iconic pink jerseys next season. 

Assistant coach Woo Da1 Dae-won also parted ways with the team. 

Before the 2022 season kicked off, the Florida Mayhem embarked on a full roster rebuild, only keeping one player from its previous season. Floridas management cobbled together the leagues most diverse roster, pulling from Overwatch Contenders talent as well as soliciting the knowledge of veterans. 

Hydron was one of the teams biggest standouts, going head to head in Sojourn battles with some of the leagues most dangerous damage dealers. Alongside players like Xzi, who overcame health issues and the usual visa hell to get to Florida, he was able to make a true name for himself among the leagues elite. 

The same could be said about SirMajed, a familiar sight to any EMEA Contenders fans. His Zenyatta plays often saved the Mayhem from imminent destruction in close team fights. Anamo, one of the leagues most veteran main supports, offered consistent healing and leadership in the teams backline. 

Florida now heads into 2023 with three remaining roster members whose contract statuses have not yet been disclosed.
