Come next Overwatch League season, Terence “Soon” Tarlier and two assistant Los Angeles Valiant coaches will be taking their talents to other rosters.
The Valiant announced the trades, which also include assistant coaches Julien “Daemon” Ducros and Jordan “Gunba” Graham, on Thursday, October 18.
The team didn’t say where Daemon and Soon are headed, but confirmed they would be going to an OWL team for next season, while they revealed that Gunba will be going to the Boston Uprising.
Soon, who has been with the Valiant since the very beginning of the Overwatch League, is currently representing his home nation of France in the Overwatch World Cup, along with Daemon, who joined the Valiant to help them take the Stage 4 championship.
Gunba is currently the head coach for Australia’s Overwatch World Cup team, so all three will be in attendance at the finals this November at BlizzCon.

With Overwatch League’s second season coming up fast, these roster changes are going to be even more fast and furious as time goes on.
Hopefully the Valiant got something good in return for Soon, wherever they sent him because DPS talents like that can be pretty hard to find.
