The Shanghai Dragons have cut the majority of their roster following a 0-40 season in the inaugural Overwatch (opens in new tab) League.
Three players, including Geguri (opens in new tab), remain for the impending rebuild. The players who have been released are:
- Cheng "Altering" Yage
- Xu "Freefeel" Peixuan
- Chen "Fiveking" Zhaoyu
- Jing "Roshan" Wenhao
- Liu "Xushu" Junjie
- Chon "Ado" Gi-hyeon
- He "Sky" Junjian
- Kim "Daemin" Dae-min
The team has also released coaches Kong and Nai8.
It was a torrid year for the team but, as Damian explained when they were 0-30 (opens in new tab), they were better than their record suggests. Perhaps by building around the three players they've retained—Diya, Fearless and Geguri—they can fare better next season.
They have a passionate fanbase behind them too: Ash wrote about why she's stuck with the side (opens in new tab) despite them not notching a win.
