Twilight joins Toronto Defiant

The former San Francisco Shock flex support is headed north in 2022.

The Overwatch League offseason has so far been filled with an unruly amount of drops and full-blown roster reconstructions, but good news is on the horizon as teams start signing new players. 

To kick off the signing season, the Toronto Defiant has picked up former San Francisco Shock flex support Lee Twilight Ju-seok. This acquisition would mark the first major free-agent signing of the 2021 offseason and the first new pickup for the Defiant. 

Twilight has long been considered one of the leagues best flex supports. Before his time on the San Francisco Shock, he was a part of the Vancouver Titans impressive 2019 season. Throughout most of 2021, Twilight played alongside fellow Shock support Park Viol2t Min-ki as double flex support metas ruled the game. 

On Oct. 1, the Toronto Defiant committed to an entire roster rebuild ahead of the 2022 season, dropping eight players in a single day. Only DPS Jeong Heesu Hee-su remained on the roster. Now, he’ll at least be joined by Twilight.  

Adam Adamou, head of esports for the Toronto Defiants parent company, said that Heesu would form the core of the 2022 roster in a Twitter post. Head coach Kim KDG Dong-gun and assistant coach Kwon Yang1 Yang-won were also retained. 

Last season, the Defiants mixed roster found moderate success but still never rose to the levels of other teams, finishing seventh in the West Region standings.
