The San Francisco has announced a few changes to its damage line-up of players, as Nam-joo "Striker" Kwon has announced his decision to retire from competitive Overwatch and leave the team, with Seonchang "ANS" Lee coming back from his retirement as a replacement.

Striker, who has been on the team since 2018, and has played a crucial part in the back-to-back championship wins for the team hasn't yet disclosed his reasoning for retiring. The team gave Striker a farewell over Twitter where it stated, "Since joining us in 2018, Striker has been absolutely indispensable to the team. Our back-to-back championships would not have been possible without his hard work."

Ans, who originally retired after the end of the 2020 Overwatch League season, will also be returning to the team to fill in the slot left over by Striker. As the Summer Showdown starts very soon, we'll have to see if Ans will be playing in the coming weeks.
