Just before the signing period closed on April 3rd, the Boston Uprising signed support player Min-seok “AimGod” Kwon. AimGod is currently living in South Korea and will be available as soon as his visa is completed.
AimGod will be the fifth support player on the Uprising squad. After the release of Jonathan “DreamKazper” Sanchez for sexual misconduct and the signing of AimGod, supports now make up half of the roster.
This distribution of roles across the roster is certainly not ideal. DreamKazper’s actions have severely hampered the depth of the team. This leaves Boston with only two DPS players. This being revealed after the signing period compounds the issue.
On April 3, the Uprising signed Min-Seok “AimGod” Kwon. @aimgod_ow will be available following visa approval.
AimGod, who used to go by JEFF while playing for Ardeont, has been with two other professional teams. He played for Ardeont from October 2017 until the beginning of February. After which he joined Meta Bellum, who he played for until signing with Boston.
While AimGod was playing for Ardeont, his team won the Overwatch Pacific Championship. His time with Meta Bellum did not result in any tournament wins, but they did place top three at both the Overwatch Contenders Season 1 Trial: Korea and the Overwatch Team Story: Chapter 4 tournaments.
AimGod will likely be a backup for the rest of Stage 3, assuming he arrives in the United States before Stage 3 is completed. He may see playing time in Stage 4, but it’s unlikely as the other two backup supports, Connor “Avast” Prince and Mikias “Snow” Yohannes, have not played since the preseason.
Boston signing AimGod could be a precursor to the team moving either Avast or Snow to an assistant coaching position or potentially moving one of their five supports to a flex DPS spot temporarily.
