Jani “Exceed” Kosonen, one of the original members of the Helsinki REDS Overwatch roster and DPS player until the team’s dissolution in late 2017, is staying on with the Helsinki REDS to begin a career in competitive Tekken.

“Moving from Overwatch to Tekken is a big step for me,” said Exceed of the switch. “I don’t have much experience with Tekken, but I am looking forward to the challenge.”

Of leaving behind Overwatch, Exceed had this to say: “I am thankful for all my teammates. It has been a privilege to play with them, and to face both victories and defeats by their side. I would also like to thank our sponsors and the Helsinki REDS for giving us this chance – and, in particular, I would like to thank the Helsinki REDS for giving me the chance to show my skills in a new game.”

“The coming year will be hectic, but I look forward to it.”
