Tragedy has been ripping through the Overwatch League as the Philadelphia Fusion announced through social media this weekend the passing of Kim “Alarm” Kyeong-Bo. Alarm was one of their flex support players.
Currently, no details about his passing have been shared. The Philadelphia Fusion asked that everyone give the Kim family privacy during this extremely difficult time. Alarm was announced last month to be returning to the Fusion for the 2022 Season.
He won Rookie of the Year last season as well as a Role Star Award and was nominated for the MVP Award. Prior to joining the Philadelphia Fusion he also played for their Academy Team, Fusion University.
Below is the full statement from the Philadelphia Fusion on Twitter.
“We are devastated and heartbroken to hear about Kim “Alarm” Kyeong-Bo’s passing. “Alarm was the heart and soul of our organization, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends as we mourn this tragic loss.”
The Kim family and the Fusion ask for privacy during this incredibly difficult time.
