They've shifted to different roles in the organisation.

We reported earlier this week that Overwatch League team Houston Outlaws has parted ways with their player Russell 'FCTFCTN' Campbell, and now we know a few more players who won't be playing in the league next season.

Lucas 'Mendokusaii' Håkansson and Matt 'Clockwork' Dias are the players in question, but they haven't left Outlaws, as they're just moving to different roles. Mendokusaii, for example, will become a content creator, while we don't know what Clockwork will be doing, as Outlaws simply said he'll be in a non-player role.

Clockwork has posted a TwitLonger about the situation though, saying the following:

"My future playing Overwatch in any competitive capacity is uncertain [...] I know that I'm a highly talented FPS player, and despite my age, I'm confident I have the abilities to compete in existing titles and any new ones on the horizon. However, I also have a penchant for organization and behind-the-scenes work. For the time being, I believe it will be better to translate those skills into something tangible and use my experience to help my teammates reach their potential. As a recently-retired OWL player, I have both the context and individual skill to help my teammates in ways many other coaches and staff cannot. For those of you who have always supported me, you have my appreciation. If you liked watching me compete and you want to see more, this may not be the end of my competitive gaming career."

Are you glad to see both of these players stay with Outlaws?
