Today, San Fransisco Shock announced that Nomy, dhaK, and iddqd will not be returning to the OWL as Shock players. It's news that fans closely following the OWL might have suspected, given numerous roster changes and player releases have begun all around the league. Iddqd infamously hasn't played a single game on the OWL stage for SF Shock since the pre-season and Nomy long since been benched in favor of Choihyobin, the tank player from Korea.
Dhak, although a skilled Lucio player, was also frequently regulated to the bench thanks to his trademark hero being out of the meta and generally an unpopular pick throughout the majority of the season. Presumably, the mid-season acquisition of Moth made a relatively unflexible support harder to justify
Returning to the league?
At this time, it is not confirmed whether or not any of these players will be returning to the OWL under the banner of a different team. For now, it can only be assumed that their contract with SF Shock has ended and it is not being renewed.
In a TwitLonger, dhaK shared his thoughts and opinions of the season. In one section, he talks about how the biggest disappointment of the season for him was not being able to play along sinatraa on stage:
"By far my biggest disappointment of season one is not having played a single minute on stage with sinatraa. I don't think I will ever find natural synergy with a player like I have with sinatraa, it's like we have the same mind, scary in a good way. Even at a time when sinatraa, babybay and me were playing internal scrims on team B and stomping team A, I still didn't get to play a single minute with him on stage."
