NoSmite is the latest addition to the Paris Eternal roster after the team announced the signings of Yeong-Han “Sp9rk1e” Kim, Han-bin “Hanbin” Choi, and Ki-hyo “Xzi” Jung in October.
Last month, the team also announced the signing of NineK as the team’s head coach after the departure of their head coach and assistant coach within several days of one another.
Despite the shake-ups, Paris Eternal has managed to retain six of their players heading into the 2020 season, which will prove to be beneficial moving forward as the team develops new chemistry.
NoSmite previously played for X6 Gaming in Overwatch Contenders Korea before he joined Hangzhou Spark in 2018, where he started the 2019 season with the Spark in the main tank position. However, NoSmite quickly saw his role regress with the team with the improvement of Xu “guxue” Qiulin.
NoSmite eventually parted ways with Spark in June of this year and moved to a two-way contract with his academy team Bilibili Gaming. NoSmite helped Bilibili placed third and fourth in Contenders China Season 2, but was soon brought back to Spark for Stage 4 of the Overwatch League.
NoSmite should prove to be a worthy addition to the team as long as he can continue to remain competitive and enthusiastic.
Given Paris Enternal’s massive offseason and roster reconstruction, NoSmite has a pretty good opportunity in front of him to kick off the 2020 season on a positive note and hopefully find some solidarity and cohesiveness with the team.
Paris Eternal is currently in Seoul, South Korea while they compete in a month-long boot camp to help prepare for the upcoming season. It’s unclear if NoSmite will be joining the rest of the team at the boot camp or after.
