Vancouver Titans picks up flex DPS k1ng 

The crown puns write themselves.

A familiar face to North American Overwatch Contenders fans will be joining the Vancouver Titans for the latter half of the Overwatch League season as the team hunts for its first win. 

Flex DPS Rene k1ng Rangel will join the Titans, according to an announcement by the team. His signing comes days after the team dropped DPS Niclas sHockWave Jensen, who had been part of Vancouvers roster off and on for several years.  

K1ng is one of the most well-known names in the current North American Contenders circuit and has played for various teams since 2016. In the past few years, hes had short stints on teams like Odyssey, Bobby Wasabi, and Solaris. Most recently, hes played for WISP as well as Maryville Esports in the collegiate scene. 

Vancouver will now be rolling into battle with k1ng, Luka Aspire Rolovic, and Chris Mirror Trinh, who also pulls double duty as a tank when necessary. 

K1ngs acquisition is part of the Titans ongoing restructuring throughout the 2022 Overwatch League season. With a 0-12 record thus far, changes have been necessary. Other than sHockWaves drop, Vancouver also let both of its coaches go and picked up former Los Angeles Gladiators coach David DPei Pei last month. 

Luckily, the team will have some time to mesh with its new DPS since the Overwatch League is on a short summer break. Vancouvers next match will be against the Toronto Defiant on Aug. 12 at 5pm CT.
