Kalios "embodies the new age of tanks in the @overwatchleague," PRE tweeted Monday. "He has taken what he learned from previous seasons while remaining flexible for the changes coming with OW2. This has been a long time coming, and we're so happy to have him."

Earlier this offseason, Washington also signed main support Gi-beom "OPENER" An, who is considered inactive until he turns 18 in April.
