uNKOE leaves the Overwatch League for Valorant

While the Grand Finals haven't yet started, Benjamin "uNKOE" Chevasson is leaving the Overwatch League to play Valorant.

uNKOE leaves the Overwatch League for Valorant

Overwatch League Season 3 is coming to an end. The final phases will be played this weekend, and for many Overwatch teams the off-season has already started with player transfers.

There are also departures with the announcement and one of the first to make this choice is uNKOE who has announced his departure from the league to join Valorant.

He has been in the Overwatch League since the inaugural season, where he played with Los Angeles Valiant before being traded to Custa and moving to Dallas Fuel.

Since the beginning of the season, Dallas Fuel — which didn't have good results — left him on the bench. We don't know the exact reasons for this absence but we'll surely know more in the next few days when the player will want to talk about it.

This departure is far from being a surprise for the fans. It had been a long time since he had played for his team. If he was streaming Valorant, Overwatch has been absent from his Twitch channel for a long time.

He's currently looking for a European team to play on Riot Games FPS with.
