(April 2, 2018) – The Dallas Fuel and the Los Angeles Valiant announced a trade that sends support player Scott “Custa” Kennedy to the Valiant and support player Benjamin “uNKOE” Chevasson to the Fuel. Both players will be eligible to compete with their new teams for the start of Stage 3 of the Overwatch League on April 4.
“uNKOE is a mechanically gifted support player that will bring key strengths and motivation to our team,” said Dallas Fuel head coach Kyle Souder (@KyKy). “His history of success and skill set have long been respected by this entire team and will help us push forward this season and in the future.”
Prior to joining the Overwatch League, uNKOE played competitively for Rogue. Custa played for Fnatic and Arc 6 before signing with the Dallas Fuel in October.
