LA Gladiators’ Bischu Steps Up To Temporarily Fill Vacant Gladiators Legion Role

Stepping in for the departing frd, Bischu signs two-way contact with Legion to fill key missing flex tank role in his absence.

LOS ANGELES (April 7th, 2019) -- The Gladiators are excited to announce that starting on April 8th, LA Gladiators flex tank Bischu will temporarily be joining Gladiators Legion under a two-way contract to support the current roster, while Gladiators Legion actively searches for a new full-time flex tank.

As the Gladiators say goodbye to frd and begin work to find a long-term replacement, the opportunity for the Gladiators Legion to be supported by one of Overwatch League’s most prominent stars in Bischu came about around this convergence of unique circumstances. After Bischu missed the start of Stage 1 due to illness, the D.Va main is eager to return and help support his fellow Legion teammates as he gears up for his return to the Overwatch League.

“We couldn’t be more grateful to Bischu for stepping in. We’re confident we can find a great flex tank soon but having a player we can trust step in for the time being gives us the freedom to not sign just any player, but the right player,” says Charlie Lipsie, Director of Esports.

“We’re lucky to have a player like Bischu who can help work to be a leader and mentor for our Legion players while still remaining a stalwart component of our main roster,” says Rob Moore, company founder.
