According to sources, Cameron “Fusions” Bosworth has entered contract negotiations with the Boston Uprising to be signed onto a standard Overwatch League contract, promoting him from his “two-way” player status. Upon league approval, the new contract situation would allow Bosworth to compete in all future matches for the Uprising.
In the aftermath of the incident which prevented the young talent from competing in last nights match, team sources came forward to VPesports and disclosed that they themselves weren’t aware of the extent of the rule that had barred Bosworth from the competition. Some argued that they themselves could’ve likely found themselves in the same predicament and that the Boston Uprising had merely been the first team to get to the two-game limit as their first-week schedule entailed two matches instead of one. Other teams, however, expressed awareness of the league ruling. It is believed that the incident prompted many contract negotiations for current two-way players across the league to prevent further problems.

In regards to last nights match against Shanghai Dragons, Bosworth had been told last minute that he wouldn’t be allowed to play as a result of a league rule regarding two-way players (VPesports had reported). After already having set up his peripherals on stage, League officials had told the Uprising that the British main tank wasn’t going to be allowed to play. Park “Axxiom” Min-seob was brought in to replace Bosworth. The Uprising lost the match against Shanghai Dragons, ending their 42 game losing streak.
