San Francisco Shock add Striker to their Season 2 roster

The San Francisco Shock has acquired DPS Player Kwon “Striker” Namju for their season 2 roster. Striker was one of the most influential players in Season 1 of the Overwatch League. He was responsible for Boston Uprising’s strong performance in Season 1 despite not having the biggest names in the initial stage. The player is well-known for his Tracer play and has a very high accuracy and impact with the character. His ability to eliminate the opponent support players with ease is what makes his impact on the team fight influential.

Striker joins his coach Dae-hee “Crusty” Park on San Francisco.

Having worked with Striker last season, I am very excited for him to join the roster. He demonstrated excellence on stage during the first season and will be a great addition to the Shock family.

Striker will play alongside former Dallas Fuel and London Spitfire player Kim “Rascal” Dong-jun on the DPS role. He will develop the necessary coordination and synergy with his fellow Korean player. San Francisco Shock also has Babybay and Architect on their roster so the DPS players will need to be on their toes for a starting spot.
