The Los Angeles Gladiators are one of the two Los Angeles based teams in the Overwatch League. The battle for Los Angeles has seen them constantly match-up against the Valiants to prove their supremacy to their fans. While the end result was pretty even, the Gladiators have definitely gained their share of fans.
The Gladiators team has announced the addition of two new players to their roster for Season 2. In a carefully edited video, they show Puckett selling these players and calling them the ‘new models’.
UNLEASH THE BEASTS.

Roar and Decay are the two players who will be joining the team for Season 2.
Chang-hoon “rOar” Gye joins the team as the tank player. He is well-known for his performance on the Reinhardt and Winston. He is able to constantly provide a steady mix between aggressive plays and defensive abilities for the team. Roar will join Bischu on the team on the tank role.
The other player joining for Season 2, Decay has a multitude of heroes in his arsenal. The player has excellent proficiency in Zarya, Tracer and Genji. His aggressive playstyle with the Zarya is what enables him to deal a constant amount of damage to the opponents. We will hopefully see Decay in the active roster for Season 2.
We’re really glad for rOar and Decay to join us. ROar is an experienced main tank player and has steadily climbed in Korean Contenders. His ability to lead the team will help Gladiators reach the top level. Decay is considered one of the young DPS prodigies in Korea. He will fit very easily into our DPS lineup with his deadly mix of high mechanical prowess, calling, and flexibility. Having him gives us a lot more options against the top teams in the league.
THE CALL HAS BEEN ANSWERED. @MLGPuckett and @BischuGG bring in reinforcements for Season 2.

For the Gladiators, these additions will only serve to strengthen their position and performance in Season 2. Their Top four placement during Season 1 was extremely good, but in Season 2 there will be more competition. There are eight new teams joining the League for Season 2 spread out across the world.
The Overwatch League Season 2 commences on February 14th, 2019.

On Oct 30, 2 years ago I created Winston's Lab.
Initially, I just wanted to play with numbers. Then use data to improve teams.
