Fusions back on OWL stage for Boston Uprising

Olivia Richman • March 1, 16:11

Boston Uprising’s Cameron “Fusions” Bosworth was on stage for the Uprising victory against Seoul Dynasty, following a competitive ruling that had previously barred Fusions from the remainder of stage one.

The 3-1 victory was especially satisfying for Fusions after he had to watch his team’s defeat to Shangai Dragons last weekend.

Fusions was benched because of the Overwatch League’s ruling on two-way contracted players, prohibiting such players from participating in more than two Overwatch League games per stage if the player had competed in the previous season of Overwatch Contenders.

The addition of two-way contracts is new for the 2019 Overwatch League season and has led to many new roster rulings for the competitive year. Two-way players lose their Contenders eligibility if they appear in more than two Overwatch League matches in a given stage. The new guidelines also state that two-way players are not allowed to appear in both Contenders and Overwatch League matches within the same week.

Fusions was signed to Boston Uprising with a two-way contract, allowing him to also play for Uprising’s academy team and placing him under the new guidelines. Since Fusions played with the Uprising twice during the second season’s opening weekend, the Reinhardt main lost his eligibility to participate in the rest of the league’s first stage.

The reportedly late decision to keep Fusions from competing against Shanghai led to Fusions negotiating with the Boston Uprising for a standard contract. This new contract will allow Fusions to compete in all future season one matches, pending league approval.

Head coach Chris “HuK” Loranger announced on Twitter that Fusions was eligible to play in the third week of the Overwatch League soon after. While he was happy with the final outcome, HuK did note that the team still did not agree with the league’s initial ruling on the matter.

Fusions will be competing in Boston Uprising’s upcoming match versus Toronto Defiant.
