The Washington Justice have their tank line for the 2021 season, as they have supposedly completed the signing of 2018 Overwatch League champion and former London Spitfire and Philadelphia Fusion Off-Tank Jun-Ho "Fury" Kim, sources have told haloofthoughts.

Fury, who is regarded as one of the best Off-Tank's in the Overwatch League since it's formation and is looking to secure his second Overwatch League title, after being a part if two magical runs that year when the Spitfire won the stage 1 playoffs and the 2018 Grand Finals. After the Spitfire failed to repeat the feat in 2019, Fury was traded to the Philadelphia Fusion. A team that would allow him to once again contend for the league title. After a promising season, the Fusion fell short, losing to the Seoul Dynasty in the 2020 Grand Final playoffs. He was released by the Fusion during at the start of this Off-season.

For Washington, the move is a further signal of intent of a team who are looking to progress into title contenders after an inconsistent first few seasons. While 2019 was the Justice struggle in the league with a 4-17 record that resulted in them finishing in 19th place. They showed just how good they could be, with a third place finish in the North American playoffs.

The Justice had a major shake up among their playing staff but made their first big move this off-season when they managed to re-sign star DPS player Gui-un "Decay" Jang. They followed this up with a second statement signing when they picked up highly rated, Rookie of the year contender Tae-Sung "Mag" Kim from RunAway. After recently announcing the signings of former Hangzhou Spark Support Hui-Chang "Bebe" Yoon and former London Spitfire and Dallas Fuel Support Won-Sik "Closer" Jung, as reported by Sasha "Yiska" Heinisch, with Hangzhou Spark Off-Tank Seong-Wook "Ria" Park also expected to be signed. The Justice have made a third big statement with Fury.

With Fury's guidance and head coach Seung-Jun "Sup7eme" Hans mentoring, Mag will have all the support tools available to become one of the league's best players, while also forming one of the best tank lines in the league, while supporting Decay and the Justice's attempts to make a name for themselves in 2021.

Haloofthoughts has reached out to the Washington Justice, who advised that they would not be providing an official comment at this time.
