Still tanking
May 19, 2018
Seagull is still playing off-tank for the Dallas Fuel, playing D.Va in the Fuel's 3-1 victory over the Shanghai Dragons on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Seagull, who was expected to return to Flex DPS with the debut of OGE in Stage 3, is still tanking for the Fuel. The meta shift combined with the absence of EFFECT has pushed Seagull into something of a tanking role once again. He has proven to have a good grasp of D.Va and could be part of a lineup that gives Dallas something other than embarrassment this stage.
Breaks out on Brigitte
May 19, 2018
Mickie switched from DVa to Brigitte in the Dallas Fuel's 3-1 victory over the Shanghai Dragons on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Mickie who has long been chastised for being a DVa only player, is finally changing it up due to something other than necessity. While Brigitte does seem to be an innately powerful hero, Mickie seems to have a masterful understanding of how she is played. Dallas could manage to find some semblance of success early on in Stage 4 if Mickie can hold the team down with his play.
Back in the saddle against Shanghai
May 19, 2018
Taimou was back in action in Dallas' 3-1 victory over the Shanghai Dragons on Wednesday, after having appeared sporadically throughout Stage 3.
ANALYSIS
Taimou seems to be doing better after his medical scare towards the end of Stage 3. With EFFECT still in Korea, it will be mostly up to Taimou to help carry the Fuel through hard times. He settled in against the Dragons on his signature McCree which, after losing Kings Row, helped Dallas to settle in for a run that ended in a 3-1 victory.
Likely benched this week after ER visit with stroke like symptoms
April 23, 2018
Taimou informed his fans via his personal Twitter that he would not be streaming after a panic attack combined with hyperventilation prompted him to seek medical attention.
ANALYSIS
Taimou went to Urgent Care after experiencing a severe panic attack that caused half of his body to experience pain or numbness. Urgent Care advised him to go to the ER as he had many symptoms indicative of a stroke. After receiving a CAT scan, Doctors determined that Taimou's condition was likely indicative of extreme stress. Taimou will likely sit out of the Fuel's matches this week as a precautionary measure and could be out for longer.
Will miss next two matches
April 23, 2018
EFFECT has revealed on his stream that he is taking a mental health holiday in South Korea.
ANALYSIS
Likely due to the high-stress environment currently consuming the Dallas Fuel organization, EFFECT is taking a sabbatical and has not revealed when or if he will return. While he will almost assuredly miss this week's games it is possible that he will be absent for the rest of Stage 3.

Announce release of KyKy and Rascal
April 15, 2018
The Dallas Fuel announced to the press late Sunday night that Head Coach Kyle Souder and DPS player Rascal will be released effective immediately.
ANALYSIS
This announcement comes as a huge shock to the community, as the Dallas Fuel was starting to improve after two stages of turmoil. Rascal's release is somewhat less shocking as he has long been rumored to be causing internal issues. With the transfer window having closed weeks ago, Rascal will not be replaced until the off-season. Meanwhile, KyKy's replacement is expected to be announced within the week.
