Toronto Supporter Defiant Kellex Retires From Professional Overwatch


The Toronto Defiant will lack support this weekend. Kristian “Kellex” Keller retired from professional Overwatch and will leave his post in the Overwatch League, the main support announced today.

Kellex joined the Overwatch League as part of the Boston uprising and played for the team for two seasons. During the offseason 2019, he was recruited by the Toronto Defiant, the team evolving towards a predominantly Western formation. He also played support for the Denmark team in three years of the Overwatch World Cup, its most recent being the 2019 competition.

“It was not an easy choice to make,” said Kellex. “After discussing it with my family and closest friends, I know I made the right decision for myself. Kellex did not reveal what he planned to do next, but thanked his team and community for their support.

For the Toronto Defiant, Kellex’s decision means that some changes must occur within their small team. Kellex was the main supporting player on the list, specializing in heroes like Mercy and Lúcio. The KariV Young-seo park normally takes care of all flexible support tasks.

Alternate Support Park “RoKy” Joo-seong, who was previously a two-way player for the now-defunct Montreal Rebellion, will likely play the role of important primary support. RoKy is also the only player remaining in the Toronto Defiant season two roster.

The next Toronto Defiant game will be against the Los Angeles Gladiators on May 3 at 6 p.m. PST.
