Paris Eternal Roster Exit: Players And Coaching Staff Included
Despite a successful run in the third season of the Overwatch League, Paris Eternal announced that it will completely revamp its organization for 2020. The changes affect the competing roster, administration, coaching staff, and can potentially affect future Overwatch Bitcoin betting predictions in the coming months.
Here’s the complete list of players and staff leaving Paris Eternal in 2020:
Eoghan “Smex” O’Neill
Joon “Fielder” Kwon
Da-un “NoSmite” Jeong
Yeong-han “SP9RK1E” Kim (traded to Dallas Fuel)
Han-been “Hanbin” Choi (traded to Dallas Fuel)
Terence “SoOn” Tarlier
Nicolas “NiCOgdh” Moret
Benjamin “BenBest” Dieulafait
Yon “Rush” Hee-won (Head Coach)
Kim “NineK” Beom-hoom (General Manager)
Jeong “Levi” Chung-hyeok (Assistant Coach)
Go “Aid” Jae-yoon (Assistant Coach)
The team first revealed the details of the coaching changes. Paris Eternal let go of its entire coaching staff due to various reasons, so the organization had no choice but to rebuild. Rush is now the new head coach of the Dallas Fuel, while Levi is set to complete his mandatory South Korean military service. NineK and Aid have yet to announce their esports-related plans.
Paris Eternal then announced the exit of Smex, Fielder, and NoSmite. One day later, two of its players were traded to the Dallas Fuel. It was reported that Fuel wanted to gather the old Element Mystic squad, which included SP9RK1E and Hanbin as former members.
The Overwatch League community thought that Paris Eternal would settle with its remaining five players. However, the team ultimately decided not to renew the contracts of SoOn, NiCOgdh, and BenBest—the iconic French trio of Paris Eternal. The latest French addition to the roster, Brice “FDGod” Monsçavoir, will stay with the team.
The former Paris Eternal trio are now looking for new teams as free agents. NiCOgdh posted on his official Twitter account that he’s looking for new opportunities:
“Unfortunately for the first time in years, i’m a free agent.Paris told me that they don’t want to renew my contract so I’m looking for new opportunities in OWL. You can contact me on Twitter, Discord ( NiCOgdh#6594) or via mail : firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Paris Eternal ended the third season of OWL in fourth place. The team won the Summer Showdown monthly tournament, but failed short in the postseason bracket. With this record, the new roster of the team should better live up to expectations.
