FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The Boston Uprising announced today the signing of damage player Terence “SoOn” Tarlier, a free agent who most recently played for the Paris Eternal in the 2019 and 2020 Overwatch League seasons. The signing is currently pending league approval.
SoOn, a 26-year-old from France, is a hitscan specialist known for his prowess on Tracer and Widowmaker. He has competed since 2016 with organizations like Misfits and Rogue prior to the OWL, and later for the Los Angeles Valiant and Paris Eternal. Prior to the OWL, SoOn’s dominant teams won titles at events like the Overwatch Open and DreamHack Winter in 2016 and Overwatch TaKeOver 2 in 2017. In 2018, SoOn and the Valiant won the Stage 4 Title Match and reached the season semifinals. In 2019, SoOn helped Team France become the first team to ever defeat South Korea in a World Cup match. In 2020, SoOn and the Eternal won the North American Summer Showdown, and he personally finished as the region’s runner-up in the All-Star weekend’s Widowmaker 1v1 event.
“Aside from his excellent hitscan play, we value SoOn’s long history in competitive Overwatch,” said Chris “HuK” Loranger, President of Gaming for the Uprising. “As a seasoned veteran, we hope he will be able to share some of his knowledge with our younger players and bring a strong veteran presence to the Uprising.”
The Boston Uprising are currently constructing their roster for the 2021 Overwatch League season. SoOn joins tank player Ji-won “Stand1” Seo and damage player Jin-ui “im37” Hong as the Uprising’s new 2021 additions thus far.
SoOn’s career history:
2019-2020: Paris Eternal (OWL)
