Jinmu is a flex/projectile specialist. He most recently played for Chinese Contenders teams Big Time Ragel Gaming and Moss Seven Club. While both teams were fairly middle-of-the-pack in Contenders standings, Jinmu was often considered a standout player on the squad.
Baconjack most recently played for Flash Wolves as their Tracer specialist. He also appeared in 2017’s World Cup as one of the Santa Monica group stage’s brightest stars. His play for Team Chinese Taipei was a key factor in maintaining their competitiveness in a group dominated by the US and UK last year.
YangXiaoLong is arguably the most notable Chinese player on this list. Another hitscan specialist, he retired in late 2017 to play PUBG after failing to make it into OWL Season 1, but has come back at the chance to make it big once again. His former team Miraculous Youngster was one of China’s most dominant squads in 2017, thanks in no small part to his play.
