Moves from player to Content Creator
September 3, 2018
Mendo will be moving into a new role as a Content Creator for the Houston Outlaws, the team announced Monday.
ANALYSIS
After only playing in a single series this season, Mendo will now move from the Outlaws bench to their content creation team. While that will be his role in the near future, there's no telling whether he will stick with this or try to make his way back onto a team for Season 2.
Moves to non-player role
September 3, 2018
Clockwork will be transitioning into a non-player role with the Houston Outlaws heading into Season 2 of the OWL.
ANALYSIS
After not seeing a ton of action in the OWL during the inaugural season, Clockwork will be hanging up the mouse and keyboard to help his team in a non-player role for Season 2. There's no word yet on what exactly he'll be doing, but fans can feel some comfort in him still being with the team in some capacity.
Released from Outlaws
September 3, 2018
FCTFCTN has parted ways from the Houston Outlaws.
ANALYSIS
As the roster moves start to heat up in the OWL offseason, FCTFCTN is the latest player to get hit with the release hammer. Given the fact that he was relegated to the backup main tank role for most of the season, it's no surprise that the team has decided to move on from him. Expect him to find a new home before long.
Getting some help
June 4, 2018
Muma is finally getting some more support from his teammates, evidenced in the Houston Outlaws' 3-1 victory over the Florida Mayhem.
ANALYSIS
Muma has continued his play style of "do your job" and his teammates are finally starting to work around him to get the victories they need. LiNkzr is now diving with Muma rather than flanking and Muma is consistently surrounded by his supports, even on stall dives. For the most part, Houston seems to be figuring out what works, just enough that they can stay in the playoff picture.
Ignoring Jake
June 4, 2018
LiNkzr is no longer relying on Jake to get results, as seen in the Houston Outlaws' 3-1 victory over the Florida Mayhem.
ANALYSIS
LiNkzr performed better than he has recently against the Mayhem, spending his time as Tracer and Widowmaker. Instead of relying on his DPS partner Jake, LiNkzr stayed back from flanking and dove onto whatever target Muma chose to jump. He also kept to the same attack style as Widowmaker, sending headshots at Muma's targets from the back lines. LiNkzr may not find this strategy sustainable but it got the win and for now that's all Houston needs.

Overwatch
Adds Kyky as Assistant Coach
May 10, 2018
The Houston Outlaws announced via Twitter that Kyle "Kyky" Souder will be joining the organization.
ANALYSIS
Possibly the worst kept secret in Overwatch League's short history, the Houston Outlaws announced that Kyky is officially a part of the organization. Originally reported by Rod "Slasher" Breslau on Twitter, Kyky's joining the Houston Outlaws should bring the team a little bit more stability on the player management side.
Overwatch
In talks to accquire KyKy
April 23, 2018
According to Rod "Slasher" Breslau the Houston Outlaws have been in talks to hire former Dallas Fuel Head Coach Kyle "KyKy" Souder.
ANALYSIS
Houston hiring KyKy as an assistant coach makes a lot of sense. It gives them a good amount of information on a rival team and its not as though KyKy was a bad coach for the Fuel. This could be a good move for Houston, but even if they chose to pass KyKy will undoubtedly find his way onto an OWL team.
