Inaugural Season is in full swing and the Mayhem has only just begun!
We are extremely proud to announce the signing of Joonas ‘Zappis’ Alakurtti.
They say if you can’t beat em, join em. Or in this case, get them to join you, as our newest member helped Team Gigantti to a narrow 4-3 win over our own Misfits during Overwatch Contenders Season 1 Finals.
Zappis is as experienced as it gets, having attended most of the major Overwatch tournaments to date, with plenty of glorious victories to his name. Throughout 2016 and 2017 we butted heads with him all across competitive Overwatch, and now we can’t wait to see him in a Mayhem uniform in Stage 2 of the Overwatch League season. He will primarily play flex tank, but his experience across all roles will complement our existing core.
A statement from our VP of West Coast Operations Jake Kuhn:
I cannot express how excited we are to bring on Joonas. He brings leadership and flexibility, experience and intellect. We know he will fit in - every one of our players respects him as a player and an individual. This addition to our team is a major step towards a future in which our Fans can believe. #BringTheMayhem
Zappis about joining the Florida Mayhem:
Hello fans and supporters of Florida Mayhem! I feel very blessed and enthusiastic in being the newest addition to the Florida Mayhem roster. I'm reconnecting with players whom I have a long history of playing with or against in the fields of Overwatch and I'm excited to start working with the team and supporters behind it. #BringtheMayhem I'm ready!
