Washington Justice Release Happy, Vigilante in Final Wave of Roster Moves

Lee “Happy” Jung-woo and Kim “vigilante” Jun are the last two players to make transfers right before the Aug. 18 Overwatch League trade deadline. The Washington Justice has been selling off a lot of its players this season. Recently, the Justice also released assistant coach Jung “Tydolla” Seung-min from the roster and sent Kim “Mag” Tae-sung to the Boston Uprising. In addition to deleting his Twitter account, Aaron “PRE” Heckman also thanked his followers for their patience in one final message on the website. Since supporters realised PRE had deleted any references to his affiliation with the Justice squad around August 14, it is unknown if PRE is still with the team at this moment.

Happy has found a new home on the Los Angeles Gladiators and vigilante will now play for the Atlanta Reign. The Justice now has just five players on its roster, which is one player below the minimum required players on the squad. The Justice will give the sixth slot to a staff member for the remainder of the season in order to comply with the OWL minimum of six players.

The Washington Justice will now have to compete with the current roster of DPS players Gui-un “Decay” Jang, Kim “Assassin” Sung-won, tank player Shin “Kalios” Woo-yeol, and support players Jung “Krillin” Yung-hoon and An “OPENER” Gi-beom.

These moves from the Justice come just a few days after a report from GG Recon reported the Justice were looking to drastically decrease its competitive cost. Lost confidence in the OWL’s finances is reportedly the reason for the cost-cutting after a meeting the teams had on Aug. 10.

The team will now have to compete with just five active players on its roster. There are still two tournaments left in the Overwatch League competitive season: the Countdown Cup in October and playoffs.
