In the Overwatch League, there are a lot of talented players. It’s easy to find some amazing talent all over the circuit, and we’re sure you’ll find some exceptional talent on every team in the League – but we think these guys deserve a special mention because they’re so awesome! To help you, we’ve compiled a list of the best Overwatch players in the world, from rookies to veterans, and it’s an extensive list of the best players in the Overwatch League.
DDing from the Shanghai Dragons
Yang Jin-hyeok played DPS for Shanghai Dragons in the early days of the GOATS meta, which led to the introduction of a bunch of characters that weren’t otherwise playable. He often wins games by a hair’s breadth, and his Sombra play alters the flow of the game on a regular basis. He has an incredibly successful career despite only having a few heroes in his hero pool, despite its size, no matter what the meta is like. He’s done away with SD since 2020.
JJoNak from NY Excelsior
Although Sung-hyeon Bang is a support player, this is kind of a technicality – when it comes to DPS, one of his greatest strengths is using Zenyatta. The blurring of support and DPS doesn’t always work – not so with JJoNak. Even though he plays with some of the best players in the Overwatch League on his team, he consistently outperforms some of his DPS teammates because of his great aim. It shows how good he really is that he didn’t abandon his support role when he was driving kills.
Dallas Fuel’s Gamsu
In the OWL, Noh Yeong-jin plays for the retired team and he’s an esports veteran. It’s no secret that he has a long career in esports, both in esports and in the OWL. During his time as an overwatch player, he played for teams like Boston Uprising, Shanghai Dragons, and Dallas Fuel, as well as Dignitas and Fnatic in League of Legends. As soon as he retired, he announced he’d be playing League of Legends again, and thus OWL lost one of its best tanks.
Super from SF Shock
The best thing about Matthew DeLisi — is his ability to play Reinhardt aggressively and skillfully. SF Shock’s star has helped them win the Stage Playoffs, May Melee, and Countdown Cup since he joined in 2017. Super and his team walked away with a $1.5 million prize money with their win in the 2020 OWL Grand Finals, but they also got recognition for their winning streak.
Ryujehong, who plays for the Vancouver Titans
Despite being a content creator now, Jehong Ryu used to play flex support for the Vancouver Titans, and he was really good. He was well-known and feared for his accuracy and list of heroes. He can also play Moira, Zenyatta, D.VA, and Zarya well, despite his best playing on Ana. While he started his career with Seoul Dynasty, he is now one of the best players in the league with the Vancouver Titans. He even won the first Overwatch World Cup with his team.
Soebyeolbe, the legendary Seoul Dynasty warrior
Jong-ryeol Park focuses on hitscan heroes as his main approach to battle, making him one of the world’s best Tracer players. He started off with the New York Excelsior in the OWL, then transferred to the Seoul Dynasty. With him in the lineup, NY Excelsior had some amazing results – including winning Group Stage with a perfect 34/6 record.
Alarm from Philadelphia Fusion
We are happy to announce that Kyung-bo Kim has won the title of 2020 Rookie of the Year of the OWL. The flex support demonstrated his skills with heroes like Ana, Zenyatta, Moira, Brigitte, and Baptiste. Alarm made it to the Grand Finals at Fusion University, leading his team to the finals, but they lost. He’s certainly one of the best Overwatch players in the OWL, and one of the best newcomers.
Profit from Seoul Dynasty
Joon-Yeong Park has played DPS for London Spitfires since he started playing. Even though the first season wasn’t great, the third season gave him a chance to shine when he switched to Seoul Dynasty. Over the years, he’s made some legendary plays, and his team made it all the way to the Grand Finals, where they lost to the SF Shock. Profit’s team lost in the grand finals, but he was chosen MVP. Profit’s record-breaking season in 2020 was the first time he had more than ten thousand eliminations.
Lip from the Shanghai Dragons
Jae-Won Lee leads the Shanghai Dragons, who are currently playing for the team. Among the heroes he plays regularly are Sombra, McCree, Hanzo, Ashe, and Reaper. It’s been more than two years since he’s been with SD, so he’s seen some hard times and some incredible victories, like the CountDown Cup in 2020, the Group Stage in 2020, and the Nexus tournament in 2021.
ArK from Washington Justice
Hong Yeon-Joon played for two successful Overwatch teams, Washington Justice for one season and New York Excelsior for two. Even though he’s in the NYE lineup, he managed to win the Overwatch League’s opening season, as well as several Stage matches before it. Seeing a Mercy main perform as well as he does is rare, but seeing him play supporting characters like her, Baptiste, Lucio, Brigitte, and Ana has earned him a spot on our list.
We have compiled a list of the Top Overwatch Players in our opinion – it was difficult to pick given how many talented players are being signed to teams. What do you think of our list? Do you think we missed anyone? Do you remember which OWLer made you the most upset when he retired? Tell us about it.
