British Hurricane Update Roster, Bid Farewell to Shifty

The British Hurricane announce today the departure of coach Nicholas Shifty Travis and announce that Ryan CrusaDe van Wegen is moving to the bench.

Upon the formation of the Hurricane, Shifty wasted no time in getting to work and finding success in Overwatch Contenders 2018 Season 1: Europe. After helping lead the team to a 14-6 regular season record, Shifty guided the Hurricane through the playoffs, dismantling Young and Beautiful, CIS Hope, and Team Gigantti on their way to winning the finals and becoming Season 1 champions.

We wish Shifty the best as his journey continues and look forward to our paths crossing again in the future.

In addition to the Shifty departure, CrusaDe will be moving to the Hurricane bench and is available for trials with any interested parties. CrusaDe was an integral part of the Hurricane’s success in Season 1, and his performance in Map 7 of the finals helped bring home the championship.
