Arc6 drops Dahun after elimination from Overwatch Contenders

Arc6 released Dahun from its Overwatch team after losing in Overwatch Contenders.
Arc6 released Dahun from its Overwatch team after losing in Overwatch Contenders.

Arc6, formally known as Yikes, has released Donald “Dahun” Leigh from its Overwatch roster after falling short of the Overwatch Contenders playoffs.

The team announced the decision Wednesday through Twitter and said it will start looking for its sixth member as soon as it can.

“We have begun trying out players and will update our fans as soon as our sixth is locked in,” the announcement reads. “Additionally, we are undergoing restructuring around staff and would like to thank Jeremy, Kitta, and Sovereign for their assistance up to this point. Moving forward, we will be refining roles and introducing new members to the team.”

The announcement comes after Arc6 was eliminated from Season Zero of the North American Overwatch Contenders tournament. After qualifying for the group stages, Arc6 went 2-2-2 in Group C and finished in third place, with Immortals and FNRGFE instead qualifying for the eight team playoff that begins Sunday.

Arc6 is not the only team to make a move during the tournament, as Team Liquid released coach Alex “Aurace” Nguyen despite remaining in the tournament.
