Lee “ANS” Seon-chang returns to the San Francisco Shock following Nam-joo “Striker” Kwon’s departure and a stale VALORANT career.
Back in March, T1 VALORANT have announced the signing of Overwatch League champion Lee “ANS” Seon-chang to their roster. His rise to stardom in the world of Overwatch was certainly interesting to say the least. The 21 year-old superstar joined the San Francisco Shock at the beginning of the 2020 OWL season. He was tasked with filling the shoes of none other than the defending champions’ MVP, Jay “sinatraa” Won.
A tall task that he quickly proved worthy of. ANS established himself as one of the best DPS players in the league. He helped the team win the Overwatch League 2020 May Melee, his first tournament under the San Francisco Shock banner. The achievements kept piling up, with the most notable being his Overwatch League 2020 Playoffs Grand Finals victory.
ANS switched to VALORANT as mentioned before. He was part of both T1’s main and academy VALORANT teams over the duration of his stay with the organization. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out as good as expected. The player was part of the roster during their VCT Stage 2: NA Challengers 1 Open Qualifier run but they only finished between the 17th-32nd positions.
This probably sparked the return to Overwatch. As of June 23rd, ANS made his comeback story to the San Francisco Shock complete. It is worth mentioning the news was announced on the same day the organization parted ways with their legendary DPS player, Nam-joo “Striker” Kwon. ANS sits as the 21st Overwatch League player with the most earnings.
