The London Spitfire continue to make moves this offseason, this time signing Jung ‘Krillin’ Yung-hoon to their roster from the Open Division.
Krillin was previously a member of South Korean Overwatch squad CRusher, an Open Division team that took part in Contenders Trials Korea earlier in 2018.
As a flex-support, he’s mostly played Zenyatta and Ana, but it will be interesting to see what the Spitfire decide to have him play.
After letting support player Won-sik ‘Closer’ Jung go to the Dallas Fuel earlier this week, the Spitfire could be looking to shore up their support line ahead of next season.

Many Western Spitfire fans will probably be excited to see Krillin simply play Overwatch for the first time since he’s been playing in the Korean scene up until now.
Please join us in giving a warm welcome to the latest addition to our family, the flex support – @Krillin_1! Krillin showed huge promise during open trials and we can't wait to watch this diamond in the rough flex on our opponents in #OWL2019! #AcesHigh pic.twitter.com/vcy7w0s0xr

There’s been a ton of offseason moves and acquisitions this week from Overwatch League teams already. On Monday, the Florida Mayhem kicked off the week by signing a group of three players to their somewhat empty roster.
As Overwatch League season two steadily draws closer, there’s sure to be countless more roster moves, especially with six new teams joining the league this year.
