Following the announcement Janus took to Twitter to thank New York and the fans, “Huge thanks to
@NYXL and the fans. It was incredible year for my life. I was so happy to be in the team. And yeah, of course I’m looking for team if you need a typical weeb main tank”
Janus came to New York along with the rest of the players from the all-Korean Overwatch team LuxuryWatch Blue, and has played tank exclusively during his time with the team. During his time in Overwatch League his playtime wasn’t very substantial in comparison with his tanking counterpart Mano. Janus saw play on 69 maps, while Mano played on 105.
There’s no date available at this time for the start of Overwatch League’s second season.
