Seoul Dynasty acquires flex support lr1s from Houston Outlaws 

Seoul support Creative is headed to a "new home."

The Overwatch League trade deadline may have passed on Aug. 18, but some trades have clearly been lingering in the team announcement queue over the weekend.

In an unexpected move, the Houston Outlaws have traded flex support Kim lr1s Seung-hyun to the Seoul Dynasty, according to an announcement on Aug. 22. In turn, Seoul parted ways with flex support Kim Creative Young-wan, who appears to be headed to Houston to complete the full trade cycle. 

Seoul announced the move with a set of graphics and noted the team would be sending Creative off to his new home, confirming the support would no longer be with the Dynasty but not explicitly confirming a pickup by Houston.

The Outlaws acquired lr1s as a free agent in late 2021 after he was released by the Atlanta Reign. For most of the 2022 season, he played alongside fellow flex support Mun Lastro Jungwon, who picked up main support heroes to cover the teams needs.   

Thanks to a recent pickup of tank Tomas Doge Kongsøre and main support Joseph Lep Cambriani, the Outlaws will have a full support backline, whether they got Creative in the deal or not.

On Seouls side, lr1s will join Park Vindaim Jun-woo in the support line. Over the weekend, longtime Dynasty DPS Park Profit Joon-yeong stepped in to play Brigitte in the backline. While that switch led to two wins for the Dynasty, lr1s will give the team a more stable solution to quick-changing metas. 

Seouls next game is against the Los Angeles Valiant on Aug. 26 at 6:30pm CT.
