LOS ANGELES (July 17th, 2019) -- The Los Angeles Gladiators have transferred off-tank Aaron “Bischu” Kim to the Guangzhou Charge.
As off-tank, Bischu helped guide the team to many victories, ultimately finishing 4th place in the Inaugural Season of the Overwatch League. After missing part of the 2019 season due to illness, Bischu briefly filled in as off-tank for the Gladiators academy team, Gladiators Legion. During his time with the Legion, the team finished 2nd in Season 1 of Overwatch Contenders 2019.
“I've been working with Bischu for 2.5 years now, the longest of any player I've worked with, and it's been an absolute joy to have him on the team for every single second. He's always really epitomized what I thought it meant to be a Gladiator, and he will forever be a Gladiator. I'm really sad to see him go, but really happy he has a great opportunity with the Charge to showcase who he is and why he's such a great player. He'll always be a great friend, and with all great friends, I wish him the absolute best.” says head coach David “dpei” Pei.
“I'm really sad to leave Gladiators. I love my teammates, staff, and the fans so, so much and I'll be missing everyone. However, I'm super excited for this new opportunity! Can't wait until I get back on the stage with Guangzhou Charge!” says Bischu.
