The Overwatch League is filled to the brim with talented players. The circuit has an incredibly gifted player count, and you can find some exceptional talent on every team that’s part of the esport – but there are some deserving of a special mention! So here’s the list of the best Overwatch players – everyone from (relative) newbies to the seasoned veterans that have seen it all: The best Overwatch players!
Yang Jin-hyeok is a DPS player for Shanghai Dragons – and he single-handedly managed to make a few otherwise useless characters playable in the GOATS meta, way back when. His incredible Pharah plays often earned his team a win by the skin of their teeth, and his Sombra plays regularly changed the game’s flow. For a player with a relatively small hero pool, he is still incredibly successful at his chosen ones, whether they fit the meta or not. He left the SD in the 2020 off-season.
While Sung-Hyeon Bang is a support player, this is a bit of a technicality – one of the things he’s most known for is out-DPSing the DPS players while using Zenyatta. Usually blurring DPS and support doesn’t work well – not for JJoNak. With fantastic aim and positioning, he has consistently outperformed some of his DPS teammates, despite playing with some of the best players in the Overwatch League on his team. That he didn’t abandon his actual support role in search of kills just further underlines how good he is.
